Candy Cane Love - Stampin' Up! Sweet Candy Canes

   Today is a good day to stay inside and think about cooler Christmas weather!  It's a hot humid day already here in central VA and everything is already sticky before it's even noon!  I know I'll probably be wishing for warmer weather come December but the grass is always greener right?

  I used the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set to put this card together.  If you have a bit of patience with this set you can make a lot of variations to the stripes for different looks. 


  By using a blender pen to lift off the main ink color from the thin stripes then adding a different color back in with a Stampin' Write marker you can get fun multi-colored candy canes.  For these I used Sweet Sorbet and Garden Green & Blushing Bride and Sweet Sorbet.  
  I paired these classic Christmas colors with a pop of gold bling with some Adhesive-backed Seasonal Sequins and Gold Shimmer ribbon.

  Some texture was added by embossing a piece of Garden Green with the Whimsical Woodland embossing folder.

  The sentiment is in the Brightest Glow stamp set and is stamped in Garden Green ink and cut out and popped with dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
