Today, we had some fun in the kitchen making some Christmas candy goodies. We are going to make some little gift packages for Big Daddy to take and share with his work pals. And, I squeezed in a few cards to get those finalized (FINALLY), as well.
I played along with a few challenges to make it fun. 8-) (nerd smiley!)
The first card I'm sharing was inspired by the Curtain Call Candy Cane inspiration challenge. I have this years Simon Says Stamp Candy Cane Christmas stamp set and have stained it ALL up. It has been a fun addition to my stash!
All of the images are stamped from that stamp set. The patterned paper and bow came in the Limited Edition Christmas Card kit from SSS in December. I added dabs of Liquid Glass to my candy canes for some extra dimension and a little shine.
The next card is based on this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge. (FUN sketch by Ms. Leigh Penner! LOVE her style!)
I used a piece of PTI Pure Poppy cardstock for my card base and the patterned paper is from the SSS card kit I mentioned. I heat embossed the sentiment using CTMH's Magical Moments stamp set. (love that font!). I added a button (Teresa Collins, also provided in SSS kit) and tied on some red twine.
One more card and I'll stop - I promise!
This one I combined inspiration from Colour Q and this week's Muse challenge. (I was looking everywhere to get inspired!) 8-)
I used more of the SSS Candy Cane stamp set to make these lollipops in the Colour Q colors.
I used CTMH Olive and Lagoon and SSS Lipstick red for the lollipops, CTMH Desert Sand for the sticks. The sentiment and bow (Jolee's) are also part of the SSS Christmas kit.
Ok that's it! If you hung with me for the whole post, thank you! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas from TN!
