Candy Corn?

So, one sunny July day my brother-in-law pulls his hand from his jeans pocket and promptly thrusts it forward to the full extension of his arm with a simple interrogative couplet:

"Candy Corn?"

For reals. The Hubbums and I just looked at him and burst out laughing. WHO THE HECK has CANDY CORN in their jeans pocket in JULY??? And moreover, how long has it been in said pocket and why don't you wash your clothes? Just say'n. HA!

Honestly, that story comes up every year around this time as the waxy yellow and orange candy hits the shelves. The sad thing is...I actually LIKE candy corn. I know...it's shameful, really. But, alas....*sigh*.

However, it does make for some fabulous crafty inspiration! And with the brand new Halloween set from Skipping Stones Design I was able to make an ADORABLE candy corn card! HOLY CUTE! I love these stamps!

Yup. Pure and utter Happy Halloweenie CUTENESS!!!

Of course, I can't take full credit, as it was designed based on an amazing sketch by Ashely Cannon Newell:


Yup! Un Sketcho De Fabuloso. Just say'n.

To create the candy corn banner I stamped the candy on three different papers and then cut them out and pieced them to get this adorableness! LOVE!

I stamped the background with the fabulous Timeless Textures set from Skipping Stones because I {heart} it BIG TIME! I also added a fun little sentiment from the new Halloween set! Love!

I finished it off with a super wide ribbon and a clear tape overlay that just makes me smile! I hope you love it and I TOTALLY hope you come on over to Skipping Stones Design to play along with this amazing sketch! You could WIN!!!

Today I am linking with the following parties:
