Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge 53 - Candyland

Even though I didn't get last week's Clean and Simple Challenge done (well, I have now it is just not posted yet), I decided to do this week's challenge - Candyland #53. That decision was made when I started browsing through the Candy Blog that Jen had posted to use as inspiration. You see, I found this photo. I totally remember chewing Black Jack gum...and I loved it!!!

Because of the shape of the gum packages, I decided to create some scaplings. If you haven't seen them before they are acutaully a way to use the part you would cut off an A2 size card to make it a square card. These ones are cut down a bit more. I cut the main color, hand drew the oval and cut it out with my hobby blade. Then I used white embossing powder to really get a strong white for the lines and the sentiments. I hand drew the white oval with my white gel pen.
I have started dropping these cute little scraplings off on my co-worker's desks. They really seem to enjoy them!!
Supplies: Stamps - Paper Tray, Faux Ribbon (Papertrey Ink); ink - Versamark; Paper - all scraps; Other - hobby knife, white embossing powder, white gel pen.
Thanks for dropping in today. I hope you have a stampin' good day!!

These little cards are heart-stoppingly gorgeous. If I were one of your co-workers and I got one I'd frame it.

How cute are these?!?!? And I must admit that I love Black Jack gum, too (and found some a couple years ago - the kids tried it and promptly spit it out :)
