So much for New Year’s resolutions! LOL It has been 6 days since I posted here last. At least it has not been 6 months?? I guess this COULD be a good thing. After all, I did not promise to post here EVERY single day, now did I? HA! That may have come across a bit snotty….sorry for that! lol
Well, as you all have noticed by now, I love whimsical images and papers. SO when I saw the Candyland stamp set in the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book…I KNEW I needed to play with it!! So I bought it and it sat in my stamp stash for at least a month or more while I figured out what the heck I was going to do with it!
Has that happened to you?? Have you ever purchased a stamp/stamp set that you just LOVED, could not wait to get your hands dirty while playing with the different inks and possibilities that this one stamp set had in store for you? YET when you actually get it home, it just sits there among all the other sets that you could not live without? This was one of those sets! Until I was planning for my monthly card class using the Sparkle and Shine papers…which SCREAMED “GET OUT THE CANDYLAND STAMP SET!! IT WILL BE PERFECT ON THESE PAPERS!!” So, I did!!
This was the card that we created for card class. Couldn’t you just eat those little gumdrops and take a nice big lick of that ice cream cone chimney? I just LOVE how nicely Close to my Heart’s alcohol markers color in our images! Even I can make it look good! lol I used Slate for the roof and door of the house and Whisper (light) for the main part of the house.
