Candy is Dandy: Day 14 of 31 Days of Halloween

Do you have a sweet tooth? I sure do! And that's the basis of my card for today. I used the adorable bear from Smeared Ink's Candy is Dandy set. I don't think it's available anymore.

I had this great little "candy" stamp from Inkadinkado that I thought was perfect for this guy. I used a couple of the Radiant Neon inks around the border, and for my Trick or Treat sentiment which is also a Smeared Ink image.

I used a fabulous Kaleidoscope embossing powder all over the candies. I think it added a cool effect to the card. Here's another shot.

See the rainbow? Looks cooler in person. It's so hard to photograph glitter! Thanks for visiting me today. Please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Have a spooktacular day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
