I Want Candy - My Favorite Things Teaser Day One!

[If you're looking for my Crazy 4 Challenges card, please scroll down to the next post. Thanks!]

Here we are at day one of My Favorite Things' March release teasers. Today some of the design team are showing you different ways to use a new set called I Want Candy. This set was available as the December kit but will now be sold separately starting at 10 pm on March 3. I decided to do a CAS card with this set, so I stamped several of the images in a "pile" on the front of a card made from some new card stock MFT is carrying--One Sheet Wonder. It's base weight and coloring with Copic markers is a DREAM on it! I used the masking technique to stamp my images, then I colored them with Copics. Then I stamped a sentiment from the set and tied on a fun black and white gingham ribbon from the Perfect Plaid Ribbons collection.

To give the candy some dimension, I coated it all (except the sticks) with Crystal Effects. Love that shine!

I stamped some candy along the bottom edge of the inside of the card, too, also colored with Copics. A sentiment finished it off!

To see more DT offerings, be sure to hit Kim's blog at 11:00am today. She'll have links to everyone with something to share :) And don't forget: the release party is Wednesday night from 8:00pm to 10:00pm in the MFT Company Forum over at SCS. Then the Shop and Hop starts at 10:00pm. Don't miss it!
