It's All About the Candy Corn...


Hope that all is well with you! It's SO hot here, and now the AC is out in both cars. I give up. I'm going to give DH a daily shopping list and stay inside until it snows! lol....


I know, it's WAY to early to be Halloweening it, but I simply had to.


Really, there was no choice!


I've been wanting to do a challenge at the Impression Obsession blog, and I only have two of their stamps. One is Halloween themed, and the other is Christmas themed. (I hope my set is still current!!!) The current challenge is to use the color orange. Somehow, 'O Holy Night' in orange sounded pretty yukky, so, the candy corn stamps won out!


Supplies used:

Stamps: Impression Obsession
Bazzill Basics CS
ExpressIt CS
Copic Markers
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
Dimensional Squares


Have a great evening! Back soon with some new releases from The Doodle Pantry!

Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.

You just crack me up! I have the Halloween cocktail that matches this, with the pichfork stir stick. LOL! This is so cute, and thanks for the reminder, as I have not done their challenge in ages. Please keep cool.

What a great idea to look to the future and out of this heat wave! Love your candy corn tree - have you ever mixed candy corn with dry roasted peanuts? It's suppose to be like a Payday candy bar. I tried it once and it was way toooo sweet for me, now that's sweet! Sorry I haven't called, it's been a busy catch up week!

GACK! I'd go crazy coloring that many candy corns on one card, but what a fun stamp and card you made with it! And yes, while I'm all for nontraditional colors on Christmas cards, an orange O Holy Night card seems wrong on many levels.

Netty said...

Wow terrific card Patti, loving those wonderful stamps. x

Lorie said...

Oh, how cute Patti! I love the candy corn tree...wish I had one in my backyard!

What a fun image. I adore candy corn (especially when it's mixed with salted peanuts-yum). Your card is just as yummy! GREAT job.

Very Cute!!! Did you cut out EACH one of those candy corns??

Dana said...

So adorable Patti! I don't own many IO stamps either but some of their background stamps are definitely on my wish list! So sorry about the cars and I am with you on staying indoors until fall! It was what, like 113 yesterday with the heat index? Yuck!
Hugs~

Oh yummy!! I'd like to pluck something off of that tree!! :) I'm right there with you on staying in until it snows!! LOL!!

Danni said...

What a cute image!! Great job!

Shirley said...

Wow, how did they all get there before me!!! What a really clever and very pretty card, Patti! Love how you did the die cuts for it! Thanks for playing and good luck in the drawing too, Patti!!

Love the candy corn tree!

Glittered Paws said...

Too cute and love the moon behind the tree. Anything fallish takes the heat out of the air. I think I might have one or two OI stamps, will have to check.

Rush'd Lady said...

Well, now you know what to get me when you come to KC to visit! *smile* Yum! One of my favorite candies. If only candy grew on trees! I have 11 trees in my yard!

Becky said...

What a fabulous candy corn tree, wonderful coloring. Good thing candy corn doesnt really grow on trees :)

Lynne in NI said...

Hee hee .... wouldn't the kids just love a real tree like that!!
(BTW what IS candy corn? I see it featured in loads of cards but we don't get it over here!)

April said...

Great card! I love it! Plucking candy from a tree is right up my alley!

Jenny Gropp said...

LOVE it! Would have been hard to make O Holy Night work in orange!!! Glad you played along with IO!

Shannon White said...

This is soo Adorable! Love your fun Halloween card! I've been thinking of getting that set.. Love what you did with it! And yes it wold definitely be difficult to do O Holly Night in orange.. Yikes.. LOL Love your choice much better! 8-)
Thanks for the inspiration!

Hugs

Oh my daughter would so love this!

Pat (mspfd) said...

How fun, Patti! What a great image. Looks like you did a lot of fancy cutwork -- love the dimension. I dare you to make an orange Christmas card... if anyone can pull it off I know you can!

Amanda Mertz said...

Totally cute Patti! Love the moon peeking out from behind the tree. And you have patience to color all those little candy corns! TFS!

Melisa Waldorf said...

I know I sound like a parrot, but I have to say it again ... I LOVE this card!!! I love how you did the spellbinders background and the dots around the edges with parts of the images hanging over the edges! Fabulous! Hmmmm ... here I go again ... But wouldn't it be cute to glue real candy corns on a bare tree image! ... ok, maybe not. I didn't say all my idea's were good! ha! I have REALLY missed chatting with you my friend! BIG HUGS, Melisa
