Retro Rubber Challenge #26...

Candy Corn Trees...

Happy Monday! Today I am playing along with a challenge that is new to me - CAS Colours and Sketches. I just loved the sketch and thought I could come up with something Halloween related for it.

And I did. I made a candy corn tree! Seriously – who doesn’t love candy corn! The waxy texture, the lack of nutritional value, the opportunity to get a candy corn that is one color instead of three!

Anyway, I saw the trees on this sketch and thought I would create candy corn trees (well, one anyway). I started by using my PTI topiary trio dies and cutting the trees out of various Halloween colors and then layered up the colors on early espresso to make my trees. I love how the die cut allows you to pop up the “leaves” and give some added texture.

I added a sentiment and layered the card front on a piece of early espresso and crumbcake.  That's it!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!

Supplies: CS: PTI white. SU! tangerine tango, pumpkin pie, crushed curry and early espresso. Stamps: PTI keep it simple Halloween. Inks: SU! early espresso. Dies: PTI topiary trio dies and linen impression plate.

Very cool trees Jane! Such wonderful texture.


Fab use of the CC&S sketch. Love those topiary trees and the Halloween colours and sentiment are such a clever twist. Thanks for playing.

Your Halloween topiaries are a fun take on our sketch! I like the dimension you've given them by popping up the trees themselves and then the leaves, too. Thanks so much for making CC&S part of your crafting fun! I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge.

It's always lovely to welcome new crafters to our CC&S challenge blog and we hope you'll join in regularly now you've found us. I love the added texture of your die-cut trees. Another lovely interpretation of my sketch, so glad you enjoyed working with it. Stef x
