WELCOME TO OUR OCTOBER GLITTER QUEENS BLOG HOP - DAY 1

HELLO EVERYONE!!  Welcome to our October Blog Hop.  We had so much fun last month we just had to do it AGAIN.

I am going to be featuring Halloween and Fall cards.  I am wishing for cooler weather here in hot Texas, and I think making fall cards will help, don't you?

My first card I made is called a Funky Fold Card.  It is made by making cuts in the card into 3 sections and then scoring it so that it folds unusually (middle taller than the two sides).  I really like this type of card.

 Here is my daffodil yellow and black card stock card, made with the Wicked Fun DSP from last year.  I made the candy corns by gluing strips of yellow and pumpkin pie onto whisper white card stock, and then punching them out with the pennant punch.  I then coated them with Crystal Effects and put them on dimensionals to have them stand out as the focal point.

 This color combination is my favorite.  The pumpkin pie textured card stock, then a layer of basic black card stock and topped with the Frightful Sight designer paper.  LOVE those little pumpkins on the designer paper.  Those candy corns look almost good enough to pop into your mouth, don't they?  Inside I stamped the word BOO.

Here is my final candy corn card using black card stock as the base of the card, with daffodil yellow layer underneath the Pumpkin Pie designer series paper.  This is the one we made at my Ghoul's Night Out classes I have had this month.  Everyone LOVED the colors.  Since these cards are square, you need to apply a bit more postage - it seems the USPS does NOT like square cards so they charge extra.

Thanks for visiting with me and seeing my FUNKY FOLDS cards with my CANDY CORN.  My sister used to call candy corn TOOTH POUNDERS because they gave her tooth aches when she ate them.  It got stuck down into her teeth and I guess she must have had a cavity there because it hurt her.  I still remember that from so many years ago!!  ha

Make sure you leave a comment AND are a follower of my blog for a chance to win BLOG CANDY.  I have some kits of the cards I am featuring, as well as some other fun things to send to the winners.

On to our next Glitter Queen's Blog, Cely Havens.  Lucky Cely lives in HAWAII.
