Hello possums and hope you are all OK today xxx (
It's that time of the week when we catch up with our friends in the US of A over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge and this week our theme is
As a special promotion Craftwork Cards are also providing this fabulous Card Candi box with an Alphabet stamp set which are the perfect size to stamp onto the Candi.
And as always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …
… for one lucky winner to spend …
… right here :)
So what did I do then?
Shades alert me darlins cos this bad boy is BRIGHT!!!!
See, I did warn ya :)
I went for something nice and cheery to match the yummy Polka Dots Citrus Burst Card Candi
So I used this paper which is from the Echo Park Hello Summer collection.
I wanted to do something a bit different with the Candi so I decided to make a flower.
These are ever so easy to do and to make them, this is what you do -
Punch out a 1" circle from scrap card.
Take your candi, bend in half and pinch one end together - leave the other end open. Hopefully you can see what I mean from the pic
Using your glue gun (it's easier than tape or wet glue), and working from the outer edge, add a blob of glue to the back of the folded Candi near the unopened end and stick onto the punched circle.
Go around the edge and work into the centre.
And you could make bigger flowers than this by starting off with a bigger punched or die cut circle.
I think they look a bit Hydrangea-ish.
I also used the Candi to create a scalloped edge here.
The leaves are made from an Impression Obsession Branch Die - I just chopped it up a bit :)
So that's the old card done for today and I'll be back soon as soon with a couple of sneakie peekies for you.
Have a lovely day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
