Candy And A Card!



Hello blogland friends!  It's time for candy and a card today.  I finally got my pictures uploaded on to my computer of the latest candy offering.  I put it together the morning before I left for Florida and haven't had a chance to post it until now!  Not wanting to disappoint either, I have included my morning card for your perusal too.  I really like this card because the colours in it seems so autumnal and soothing.  I like this tree stamp a lot too.  I used Labels 23 to pyramage the tree, but I left a white border on each section by inking through the die with Fired brick and Mustard yellow.  I just splodged the ink randomly while in the die to create an autumn feel to the background of the tree.  I did the same to the background with the sentiment, only keeping the colours softer and more muted this time.  I cut a Grand Labels 23 in black for the background and pierced around the edge using the die as a guide.  I finished the card by adding small black rhinestones to the corners.  If the card isn't to your taste, then how 'bout this candy offering?
There are 5 rubber stamp sets, a Rubit Scrubit pad, an adirondack ink pad, a clear stamp set, two distress inks, metal strips, distress embossing powder, glitter, gold embossing powder, an Archival ink pad, black rhinestones swirls in facing directions, an acrylic block, some buttons, clear embossing powder and a giant pile of vintage ribbon!  I loved the fact that everyone seemed so involved last time and left lots of comments so I am going to keep the game going the same way from now on.  To be entered into the candy draw, you need to send me your detail once and every time you leave a comment on the blog or email me with a comment, you get an entry.  If you check the blog daily and let me know that you have been by then you will receive an entry for each time. Simple as pie!  If you have any problems leaving a comment, then use the "anonymous" button but please sign your name to your post so you get credit for it!    All for now, Sue x

What a lovely card Sue and such a clever way to do pyramage with the labels 23, I love the piercing around the edge and will definately be trying that because I have only pierced around square edges using Tim holtz ruler. The blog candy looks amazing, you are such a generous lady and thank you for giving everybody a chance to win it

Another Stunner Sue! I love coming to your blog daily, purely for the wonderful inspiration you give. You encourage us to look at dies in different ways and something as simple as pricking around the edge of a card can give a card that extra special touch to make it stand out. Thank you for taking the time daily to provide us all with such amazing inspiration!
Huge hugs
Sandra Riley

Beautiful card and fab candy! Ani

Lindyloo said...

If I could name this card it would be 'Dusk in the Savannah' - The lions creep slowly looking to find some shade under the open canopy, among the sparse grasslands of Africa. Behind the sun is setting, painting the sky in autumnal shades of fire, but the heat is faded and relief has come at last.
This is true inspiration. Not only have you combined stamping and embossing with Spellbinders showing us the versatility of the dies, but you have proved we can use our own stash of stamps and inks alongside the dies to produce something very different.
Sue this card reminds me of the cards you used to do when I first found your work. Lovely.
Regards Linda
ps. Fab candy again. Someone else will be a very happy bunny soon.
