It’s all about the Stripes on Make it Monday Papertrey Ink

I recently got the Friendship Jar Fall Fillers from Papertrey Ink.  Their stamps sets are large and chock a block full of different stamps and sentiments that always make them versatile and timeless.  I have been wanting to do something with the Candy Corn stamp ever since I got the stamp set.  Here is the thing………………………….I love the look of Candy Corn….. especially in large quantities.  That obsession led me to buy a huge Costco sized bag of the stuff……………just to look at……………as I don’t actually like taste of Candy Corn.  Never did…………..it was always in my “trade for something edible” pile when I was sorting my haul from Trick or Treating, when I was a child.

With that introduction, I will bet you think I did a card with the Candy Corn stamp.  Well, nope, I fooled you.  The challenge today was to use stripes and I chose a stripe from the Ombre Builder stamp set.  I felt that the Candy Corn would have been too busy and would have competed with the stripes.  Instead, I used the Pumpkins on Sticks stamp.

I am loving the Friendship Jar as a shaker die, too.  It makes constructing a shaker card pretty easy.  It is always fun to make up a unique mix of shaker ingredients .  I used some delightful little orange flowers from the Shakers and Sprinkles Kit and added some dollar store sequins and seed beads.

AI Challenge Sandra Shakes her Booty

Sandra made a card with  an action wobbler to enter into the latest AI Challenge.  I believe this stamp set was originally for a Valentine’s Card but looks great in this more general purpose card.

lets hang out Sandra AI Challenge

In this card the head shakes on the action wobbler.   You will have to take my word for it.  My camera is still hanging his head in shame from the picture I tried to capture of the Glow in the Dark image on my last Halloween card.  No amount of coaxing from me is going to get my camera to catch the wobbler wobbling!
