Sweet Life and Simon Says Challenge!

I recently joined a card swap with Lefty Productions and this month we are doing a mixed media "Sweet" theme. I used a mason jar stamp on vellum and layered it over a piece of white cardstock, which I had attached mini candies to. The small candies are a free digi stamp from My Grafico. I printed them out and coloured them with Prismacolor markers, and after cutting them out I popped some up with foam tape. I used silver embossing powder on the lid of the jar by masking the stamp and a crystal embossing powder to stamp "Sweet Treats" on the jar itself.

I found some cool vintage candy paper by Tim Holtz for the bottom of the card and printed out the larger candies (another freebie from My Grafico), coloured them with markers again, and used Peachy Kean faces on them. The viewmaster die cut is by Tim Holtz - I just realized those dies fit in my Cuttlebug!! Simon Says Monday Challenge blog is having a die cut challenge this week, so I had to enter it - I would totally pick up the new Tim Holtz stencils if I won :-). I really love this die cut. I still have vintage viewmaster reels that I got when I was a kid! I cut the reel out on white cardstock and sprayed it with pink and orange Dylusions sprays. After placing it on the striped cardstock I coated the openings with Zig 2 way glue and after it dried applied a foil film. 

This card is way more detailed than I would usually do, but I had so much fun with it! I hope my friends love it as much as I do :)

  1. What a deliciously fun card (ha, ha). I loved the colors and whimsicality of it...and it made me hungry! Thanks for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog.
