Hi there!  Hope you’re all having a wonderful Halloween!  I made a card to share with you that fits a lot of challenges online this week.  Sure fun to get some ideas from other places – my favorite are sketches and color challenges and I used BOTH on this card.  I would’ve NEVER thought to put So Saffron & Daffodil Delight together, but I LOVED them together.  I stamped the “Happy Halloween” from the hostess set Wacky Wishes randomly on my So Saffron card stock in Daffodil Delight ink and that really helped pull those two yellows together!  I also did a challenge that meant that you had to include bling, so I took my Stampin’ Up! Basic Rhinestone Jewels and colored them with a permanent black marker.  Another fun challenge requires you to use supplies that are more than 6 months old – mine were my neglected colors So Saffron and Tangerine Tango, as well as the Whisper White Baker’s Twine and all of the circle punches!

One other tip is about the Candy Corn – I made it with a Whisper White 1/2″ circle punch, Tangerine Tango 1″ circle punch, and Daffodil Delight 1-3/8″ circle punch, centered and layered together.  Then you cut wedges to make the individual Candy Corn pieces!  So so simple!  I also rounded all 3 corners so they looked even more like Candy Corn.  Then I put them on Dimensionals and popped them in my little jar!  I just love the Perfectly Preserved stamp set and Cannery framelits in the Holiday Catalog!!!  There are so so many things that aren’t even in the stamp set, that you can fill that little jar with! 🙂

I hope you enjoy this project, as well as the Quick Tip Tuesday on using your embossing folders without the Big Shot.  Such a fun technique!  Give it a try and send me a picture of your creation!  If you use all Stampin’ Up! goodies, I’d love to feature you and your project here as a guest stamper!
