Trick or Treat!

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a few Halloween cards using The Stamps of Life's CandyCorn2Cut stamp set. This stamp set includes an outline stamp of a candy corn; three different patterned candy corns to decorate the three different sections of the candy corn plus the complete alphabet that you can stamp into the middle section of the candy corn. Plus you get a Candy Corn die so you can die cut all your candy corns .... cool ha!

For my first card today I created a Stand-Ups card using the Sizzix Royal Stand-Ups Flip-Its Framelits. I stamped out 12 candy corn outline images and then decorated the bottom section of the candy corn with one of the patterns which comes in the stamp set and then added the letters to spell our "TRICK OR TREAT" to the middle section. I added each candy corn to some hemp cord and then added them to my card.

Here is my card closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

For my next card I again made a Stand-Up card but this time using the Sizzix Circle Stand-Ups Card Bigz Die.

This time round I decided to decorate the candy corns with a couple of the different patterns included in the set and used colors that worked with the designer paper .... I guess these days candy corns can come in different colors. I am not a candy corn expert as we don't have them in Australia.

I also added a couple of sentiments to  my card which are from the chalksayings2stamp stamp set.

To hold all the Candy Corns I used the new Strawberry Basket Die which was released last month.

And here is my card closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

For my final card today I created a Flip-Its card using the Sizzix Triple Fancy Frame Flip-Its Card Framelits. I stamped the letters to spell 'BOO' to the middle sections of the candy corns.

Here is the 'flip' side of my card, I have left the centre flip section blank so a message can be written in this part.

I can't decide which I love more - the candy corn flip it card or the post before this with "pawsome" . You are truly becoming my enabler! I love your projects. said...

OH such fun! Love the Trick or Treat & the Boo card the best. Wonderful paper.
