Candy Corn Craze

Hey Y'all! Happy Monday! Aymee Gandy of A Scraphappy Southernbelle here with you on this beautiful day to share a few cards I have created. Can you believe October is almost upon us? I love October! Not only is it my birthday month, but Halloween is near too! I love Halloween! All the kids dressed up in their cute costumes, the festive decorations, and the delectable candy make it so much fun!!! I have already put out our Halloween decorations in our home and it got me in the mood to create. My all time favorite candy during this time of year has got to be candy corn. It's so sweet, colorful, and just perfect! So with visions of candy corn dancing around in my head, I swooped down over my scrappy studio and got to scrappin'!! Here is what I came up with:

"Let's Paint The Town"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Bazzill Basics Paper
Patterned Paper: Die Cuts With A View
Ribbon: Hobby Lobby
Rhinestones: Queen & Co.
Stamp: Studio G
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Colored Pencils: Crayola
Corner Punch: EK Success
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression
Cartridge: Slumber Party
Font: Allison's Hand

I started out by cutting this card base from the 'Slumber Party' cartridge. I then cut 3 bottles of nail polish from the same cartridge and added 'candy corn' colored paint to the inside of each. I stamped the candy corn underneath that and colored those in with my colored pencils. I'm not much of a artist when it comes to coloring in stamped images, but I tried my best! I used pop dots to pop up the bottles of nail polish for added dimension. I also added some rhinestones to the bottles. I finished off the card with some black ribbon.

Here is a closer view of my bottles. I wonder what people would think if I painted my toenails in these colors? Would they think I'm crazy?! Tee Hee! Probably so! But how festive would that be?!
I used my Microsoft Word program on my computer to type up my sentiment for the inside of the card. I printed it out onto some white cardstock and added it to the inside with coordinating patterned paper.
"Candy Corn Cupcake"
Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Bazzill Basics Paper
Twine: My Craft Spot
Rhinestones: Queen & Co.
Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger Industries)
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression
Cartridge: From My Kitchen
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug
Embossing Folders: Swiss Dots, D'Vine Swirl

What Halloween would be complete without a candy corn colored cupcake? I used my Gypsy and the 'From My Kitchen' cartridge to make this shaped card. I added a bit of embossing for texture.
I added Stickles to the cupcake liner and the cherry for some shine.
"Candy Corn Kisses, Halloween Wishes"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: Die Cuts With A View
Trim: source unknown (got these at a discount store called Surplus City)
Rhinestones: Queen & Co.
Thread: Coats & Clark
Stamp: My Craft Spot
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression
Cartridge: Smiley Cards
Software: Cricut Gypsy

For this card, I cut out a large piece of candy corn using the Smiley Cards cartridge on my Gypsy. I then layered a mixture of yellow, orange, and white trim over the top of it to create a unique piece of candy corn. I also did a bit of stitching with my sewing machine. This card was really simple and came together in about 20 minutes.
I stamped the inside of the card with a stamp from Kimberly over at 'My Craft Spot.'
I love the texture the trims give! I wish I could take all of you scrappers with me to this store called 'Surplus City' in my town! Y'all would have a fit! There is an aisle about 50 yards long STUFFED with trim, ribbon, lace, etc. It is like a scrappy heaven! LOL
I hope you have enjoyed these 'candy corn' themed projects and that they will inspire you to create some of your own! Have a safe Halloween!

Happy Scrappin'!!!
