Candy Corn Cards

Hellooooooooo there my wonderfully crafty buddies!!! My goodness, Ive been away for far too long. I am truly amazed that I still have 108 followers, despite my lack of posting in the recent weeks. It is profoundly humbling and I'm so thankful for this most awesome community of stampers, scrapbookers and crafters--in essence, artists, whom I adore so much. You make me excited and inspired to create and it brings true joy to my life. THANK YOU.
Now for the first cards I've posted in a long time....Candy Corn cards lol! Aren't they just so silly and fun though haha.
I just made this simple pattern (measures, 4 3/4" L, 3 7/8" W at the base) shaped like a candy corn. One a verysturdy white cardstock, I then sponged summer sun through the middle portion of the card. Next, I sponged pumpkin pie and another lighter orange over the base, blending it into the yellow. I went a little blend-crazy on the one with a bite out of it, hehe (the other one is obviously more balanced). The tops are just left white. I was just experimenting with the bite (used the SU scalloped circle punch) and idk if I like it or not. I think I like the tag on the un-nibbled one better too--but there are so many cute ways to variate from this and I had fun playing around with them. The stamped sentiments are from Unity Stamp Co. This pattern is simple to draw, then trace ontowhite cardstock, but if anyone happens to want my pattern, I'm happy to email it to ya, just leave me your email addy in a comment if you're interested. Thank you so much for visiting me, my friends--have a wonderful weekend :D
