Candy Stripes


Hi, there!  Kate here with a cute idea for using the little images that come with a stamp set.  
I like to get my money's worth from every stamp set I buy.  I've shown you in some of my past posts how to use the sentiments as backgrounds and even how to use the back of your stamps to color your images.  Come along as I show you how to make a border of small stamped images.

I had lots of rainbow colored strips of cardstock leftover in my scrap bin.  I glued them along the edge of an A2 card front.   No need for them to be super even since I covered the uneven edge with a strip of white card stock.  (Not interested in glueing multiple scraps?  Just use some patterned paper!) 

I used the candy images from the 2 stamp sets and *MIGHT* have gone a bit crazy stamping, coloring and fussy cutting lots of them  :)  Then I arranged the candies along the white strip of card stock, popping some up with foam tape.  I tucked several sequins among the candies to add some sparkle.  Stamp a sentiment and this card is done.

 This is a great layout to keep in your cardmaking arsenal.  Try it with pumpkins for a Halloween card, leaves for Thanksgiving, you name it! 

I'd love to see your take on my technique!  Tag me on Instagram @katedeignacards.
