Candy Corn and Spiders

I'm sure that October 31st has to be the most popular day of the year for "Candy buying" and "Candy eating"!!! Every kid looks forward to that. The following are a couple cards that feature Candy Corn, a symbol of Fall and Halloween!
For the above card, I used a card sketch on the Fiskars web site. You already know I love to work with sketches. I also LOVE this collection of papers by Heidi Grace.
The sticker letters for "boo" are covered with a clear glaze to help them stand out and I accented the punched out designs with some glitter.
This next card is an example of about the fastest kind of card to create. It is made up of some rectangles of a variety of patterned papers and a little stamped design. The edges of the patterned papers were sanded and after they were added to the front of the card, a couple lines of zig zag sewing were added for interest and dimension.
Here is a close up of my little spider web. The web and the spider are stamps, stamped with black ink and a little bit of glitter is added to both.
Thanks for visiting and may this weekend be FULL of candy for you! Linda (lbpost)
