Cardmaking

Candy Corn or Peppermint Fondant – I Dare You!

Happy Friday crafty friends! How are you all? I hope you’ve had a great week. We have had a hectic one with some home renovations going on. It’s been a conveyer belt of joiners, plumbers, electricians and painters but we are very nearly done and it’s looking beautiful! Today is the first morning we’ve been able to use our brand new shower!

Anyway in between making cups of tea and hoovering up dust I did have some time for crafting! The new Daring Cardmakers Challenge is hosted by Svenja and she asks us to make a card inspired by Candy Corn or Peppermint Fondant.

” In the US candy corn season is going pretty strong. Whereas peppermint fondant is a traditional German sweet, that ususally comes in blocks of white and strong pink. To celebrate these favourites, make a card using either a combination of white, yellow & orange or withe & strong pink. Extra (virtual) brownie points if it’s sweets-themed.”

Now I have never tasted either of these but I wonder if Peppermint Fondant is similar to Peppermint Ice which I’m sure every Scottish child has made at school. Anyway I opted for the candy corn. I cut circles of orange, yellow and white card and glued them together before cutting them into wedges and rounding off the corners to create my candy corn. I found I had a tiny candy corn stamp in my Whoo to You stamp set from Clearly Besotted. I made a little stripe of patterned paper with this stamp and coloured them all in. The sentiment is another Clearly Besotted stamp set called Trick or Treat. I inked up my card base with Ripe Persimmon Distress oxide and then finished off with nuvo crystal drops in ripened pumpkin, glitter drops in yellow bird and vintage drops in chalk stick.

LI’m looking forward to see all your sweet treat cards! Happy crafting….
