"Alegria" for the eyes

We may want to define "eye candy" as anything that is beautiful to see at and makes us happy just by looking at, just like candies do with all the sweet tooth out there.
How about some treats simply made with recycled items, patterned papers and fun stamps?

I made these candy jars, filled with chocolates, as treats last year to give away in our friends home, when we're invited to spend the Christmas eve together. I thought everyone liked the idea of taking home a little fun treat after the party.
(sorry for the darker image you see above):)

We can always be creative with everyday things around us and to take a step forward to recycle whenever we get the chance. Recycling, refreshing, renewing something, it is all good.

Happy Eye Candy you too (and don't eat too many chocolates)!

FUNdamentals technique sampler: a snowman card

This is one of the cards I made for the FUNdamentals class, to show the techniques I taught in the past few classes like edge and ink distressing, blending(colors), tearing, heat embossing among some others.
The cute snowman is part of a (very) fun stamp set from CTMH, which you can "dress" it with different mittens, scarves or other accessories. This set was a popular set from last winter and now is back to be featured in current idea book.
The cardstock color is pacifica and patterned paper is the from the new set called Magnifique(CTMH).

All supplies are from CTMH.

Have a great day!
