I'm so honored to have been one of the winners for Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #7 with my Trinity Stamps teacup card
. That gave me the chance to be a GD for the September CCCC
where the theme is candy or cookie.
Check out the blog for challenge rules & inspiration from the DT & GDs. I have to be honest--candy & cookie products are few & far between in my stash. However, I did find 3 pieces of Christmas printed paper with candy canes--yah! I picked the one with small images since I wanted to use it for the sweet little Penny Black Love Cup die set.
I attached the printed paper diecuts to white ones & inked the red lid strips & coffee sleeves with VeraMagic Red Magic ink pad. The sleeves needed something, so I dry embossed them with a dotted folder. The background was made by spreading light molding paste through Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil
. Before it dried, I poured on Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy
. Just love the effect it gives & the glitter doesn't rub off when it's dried.
Poppystamps Merry Christmas Poe Script was stacked 3 high. The top layer was inked in VersaMagic Red Magic & the 2 white layers were positioned as a slight shadow. I added some liquid glue not being too precise & poured on the same glitter. Just love the frosty look that matches the background. Hope I've inspired you to join in this fun challenge!
