More Candy Machines

Hello crafters!  I thought I would share with you a few more of the Candy Machine samples this week.  Here are another five samples, all different, but all quite fun.  I really enjoyed matching the candies and theming the samples!  The first one here used the You're So Sweet Stamps to Die For that come with the sentiment stamp as well as a curved gumball stamp to use inside the machine.  With a simple post it mask, you can stamp it and make a lovely border for the top and bottom of your card!  The last sample has heart shaped red hot candies to match the border.  Green minty candies for the St. Patrick's Day sample.  Pink and blue for  baby themed sample and a frosty snowflake card with silver candies!  You can see that there is just an endless amount of creativity that can go into one of these Working Candy Machine cards.  Let me know which one is your favourite so far?   I hope you have found some cute ways to use the die set too!   I would love to hear about it as well.   All for now, Sue x

I too have missed Saba, hope all is well .
June, your crafty jaunts always sound so much fun, wish I could be there too. I have the Eureka stamping press, it is brilliant.
Sharon and Helen, hope you are both feeling better, any news on your Results Sharon.
Maria, let's hope you don't need the shoulder op, the knee one is bad enough, you will have to get June and Sharon to give you tips.
Nice to see you back Julue Laz, hope you are feeling better too.
Bejay, think I will be needing a new laptop soon, I'd better get saving.

Dragonsnap2 said...

Amazing how different these can look depending on the colours, backgrounds and even the sweets. Fabulous set.
Reiterating all Pam's comments as she always puts it so much better than I could. Have a great bank holiday everyone. We are at a classic car show in Stratford upon Avon today so hope the current rain clears up very quickly.
Thoughts, prayers and crafty hugs,

Hi Sue. Fun cards and a fun gift for most occasions.
Whatever your plans for the day I'm sending my usual love n hugs your way simple as that ! xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I really like the candy machine set, as you say it is so versatile and what a joy it is for a child (or adult come to that) to open the card and see how it is a working creation, all those little sweeties falling out, brilliant concept Sue.

I reiterate everything that Pam has said above. Pam yes you will have to start saving for your new laptop, ha ha, you never know when your current one will finally give up the ghost on you.

Met one of my craft ladies at our local craft show yesterday who was with her husband and they are going to come to the Detling show on 13th May and want VIP tickets too so I will have someone to share the day with whilst her husband sits in the hospitality suite and does his own thing, I am so looking forward to this new show by Createit and Hochanda, there are about 40 + exhibitors so far. Sorry Sue not sure if I should mention this here but I know that a lot of the stalls will have your dies and stamps for sale (saw loads yesterday and they were flying out the door - no surprise there is there.)

Hopefully having an easy day today doing some prep for my Wednesday class, the emphasis this week is on stamping and embossing incorporated in our card this week.

Happy May Day everyone.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Good morning Sue,

Great selection, Sue, lots of fun here - quite taken by the snowflake one. As mentioned before, don't have this set but always like to see what you can do with them.
Kitty - computers! Our new (well, refurb) also plays up. We both really dislike Windows 10 after many happy years with XP - why are new versions so often not as good?
Really missing our old friend.

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue
My you do have some great ideas for this die , all cards are lovely.

Andrew and Helen braved the weather yesterday and by early afternoon it was all calm , the Man next door kindly offered to help Andrew fix the new awning { they have had it for over 12 months but with being ill it got left } so it is now in place and ready for the sunshine .
Helen is relaxing with her book today and has told Andrew to go and do some fishing so all is well there.

Pam i am trying to rest as much as i can , but John does not vac corners or wash the bottom of the plates ,tut tut it just goes to show i have thoroughly spoiled him the last 54 years .

Echoing Pam as ever
Take care , big hugs to all and a gentle one for Maureen

Patricia said...

Good morning Sun,
More super fun cards, love them all. Your tempting me!! but I know I would not use them as much as some of your "pretty" Dies.
Saba is OK she is at her daughters having fun with her grandson. Last I heard she was running round the house playing the part of Princess Lia!! maybe it was "Wonder Woman" or atacking a vase of flowers with a Nerf Gun!! ha!ha!ha!
Great summary as always Pam, I will echo it all as always.
Have a great day everyone.

Donita Naylor said...

I'm with the majority liking the classic red gumball machine. What could appeal more to the kid in everyone? Except maybe a working ce cream truck, but that would be hard to accomplish in paper. Along with Debra K, I'm admiring how hard you worked coloring all those gumball you stamped.

Thanks Marg for explaining the bank holiday. Lovely that you have two holidays in such a nice month.

Yes, in a buyout, they offer you money to leave. If they didn't get enough takers, they were going to lay people off. Some people who took the incentive to leave last time have returned as part-time workers without benefits. That seems ideal.

I spent Saturday cutting lots of open shapes from neutral card stock. Like I did with the flowers, I laid the dies on two wide strips of clear tape, about 4 by 11 inches long, covered the whole with wax paper and cut a bunch at a time, two papers thick. For the more intricate dies, I'll cut one thickness at a time. Then I can send my Dad a bunch of loose sentiments that he can put inside the blank cards I made for him.

Really like the sets that combine to make layers of the same shape.

Enjoy your bank holiday!

Love, Donita

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

It's just as I thought with the first batch of Candy Machine cards - you're making all these just so you can eat loads of sweeties!...lol...I think my favourite is the first one with the matching stamp top and bottom but they're all fun and a brilliant concept.

Really scary to read about all these old computers dying - mine is a Windows Vista and I'm dreading having to set up a Win. 10 when it finally gives up the ghost...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
Thank You So Very Much For Today's Spectacular Array Of Cards

Difficult To Choose A Favourite, As They Are "All Extremely Striking Cards" All Very Different
Giving Us Lots Of Superb Tips/Techniques, You Must Have Had Great Fun Making These Cards.
I Must Admit I Really Love "Number One" Where You've Incorporated It With The Fabulous
"You're So Sweet Stamp Fom Creative Expression" I Love Incorporating Your Stupendous
Cutting Dies With My Stamps, Which Many Are From "Creative Expression"
I've Also Got A Fun Little Mouse Stamp That I'd Add To This Card.......
Then The Next One Has To Be "The Christmas Candy Machine" (As I Love Christmas)
I Love "The Christmas Border Die" Which You've Used (Which I Have, I've Used On Many Occasions)
Also "The Silver Snowflakes" (On Taking A Closer Look At The Photograph Of "The Christmas Candy Machine"
It Looks Like You've Added Glitter To The Outside Of Your "Candy Machine" Or Am I Going Mad Lol!)
With This One The Night Sky Die With The Star's Would Look Awesome You'd Possibly Have To Cut
The Card A Couple Of Times To Give A Larger Night Skyline But If There Was A Join It Wouldn't Matter
As Your "Candy Machine Would Hide Any Join Add "Father Christmas/Sleigh" Going Across The Top
And You've Got Another Tremendous Christmas Card (Well I Think So Lol!)
Another Is The Extremely Exquisite Black "Candy Machine" With The Red Hearts Across The Top/Bottom
Making It More Romantic You Could Use Stamps Of "Paris Etc On The Background" Or A Map Where Your Recipient

Hi Sue and everyone. I really like the snowflake Christmas card, one I will definitely make. Look forward to "blogging" with you all. Sharon Casey whatever results you are waiting for I hope they are good. Love to all xx

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
I think my favourite is the Christmas one it is something different to make for the younger generation.Elaine is it this week you get your home visit concerning your back problems.Sharon fingers crossed for tomorrow.Pam hugs as usual.

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a gorgeous selection of cards today, you really have had fun making these cards ....and sampling the candy too! The first one is my favourite I think as it's so bright and has the sweets stamped on it but then I do like the snowflake one, great for giving a small gift and card together. The penny has just dropped that it looks like you have used cake decorations in the baby card, what a wonderful idea. I wonder if small jelly tots or dolls mixtures would work although they might be a bit sugary and soft. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam echoing your comments again today, you do make me chuckle. You have got the measure of our Maureen xxx
Elaine I think you should talk to Maureen, just smile sweetly when the jobs are done for you, count to 10 and remember once you are up and running again it can all be sorted. Xxxx

Hi Sue, I love all of these samples but I think the first one is a favourite, mainly because of the stamping and lovely colouring. The Christmas themed snowflake is a close second.

Just for a change we have a lovely bright and sunny Bank Holiday although there is a fairly stiff breeze. Hope everyone has a good day.

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
What a great selection of cards today, all made with the Candy Machine. It just shows that a little imagination goes a long way.
Pam, hope you are feeling much better today. I see you are missing Saba, let's hope she misses you as she's driving today ha ha. (Oops, I'll be in trouble again!!) George is going to iron this morning - I don't know if I can stand it ha ha.
Sharon, I hope the results are good.
Elaine, it's good that Andrew and Helen are enjoying their break, you just relax while they are away. Now it's taken over 50 years before George has managed to do anything, and as for washing the bottom of the plates - he just puts those in the dishwasher ha ha.
'P' as George would say "corners, what are corners?"!!!!
Donita, it sounds as though you have a good production line set up.
PP and Laine, I hope you are both feeling much better and have more energy today.
Carmen, you are a clever woman if you have managed to get the measure of "our friends" ha ha.
June S, the crafting show sounds good - enjoy it when it comes.
Alimecca, you know me, I'll do anything to attract attention so decided to do a head over bottom flip in the middle of the main street in Newcastle and ended up with a fractured hip. Worst thing is that they cut off all my clothes to treat me at the RVI!! Oh dear ha ha.
Have a good day everyone, I'll be dancing round the May Pole later or maybe not as the zimmer frame is not a good look!!!

Hello Sue,
I think my favourite candy machine is the Christmas one! However they are all lovely and such fun! I rather like Izzy's thought that you designed them so that you could test the sweeties!!
Elaine - I'm glad Andrew and Helen's trip away is going well. You relax now!
Saba - is fine - well we hope so!! She is travelling to what she calls God's own County today!! That's Yorkshire for those of you who wouldn't know that!! It's just an opinion - not universally shared! Safe travel dear!!!
Maureen - you asked for nostalgia - what about Chorlton and the Wheelies!!! There is a Saba shaped one out there on the roads!
Some of you lovely ladies have been missing for days and others weeks! We miss you!
For those unwell - hope you feel better today!
Love to all,

Hi Sue,
Love the candy machine and the one we made at the workshop I gave to my grandson for his birthday last Saturday, he was so excited about it and he could not believe that he could get can from it. Makes it all worthwhile when you get that reaction from them.
Cheers,

I do love using this die and the card i made for hubby has been refilled
quite a few times.
I try it out when i go round dusting, only to make sure it still works lol.

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
What a brilliant selection of gumball machines but so difficult to pick a favourite but if I had to choose it would be the St. Patrick's day one, it's such a fun card. I can imagine the fun you've had creating these. Thank you.

Pam and Carmen, sorry I had you worried, I've been visiting my grandson who is six and he has worn me out and by evening I have just crawled to bed!
I am however now in Gods own country as Myra so rightly said, in the Yorkshire dales and it's so good to be "home". I'm here for a week having a new wood burning stove fitted to our cottage before heading back to stay with mr. Bundle of energy for a few days before flying back to Germany. It's perishing cold here and will be until the fire is installed and up and running, at least I don't need to chill the wine!
Maureen and Myra I will have my revenge, Chorlton and the Wheelies indeed! At least I don't confuse green for go and red for stop at traffic lights like some I could mention!
Pam I'm jumping on your train and echoing everything you said today, hope that's ok.
Love and hugs fro all
A very shivering Saba xxxx

Barbara said...

Fantastic cards Sue!
I bought the whole Gumball kit and even got some sweets to go in it but so far haven't made one yet.
I have a leg ulcer and have my first compression bandage on and am finding it hard to get used to. I am walking about in an old pair of crocs as I cant get my foot into anything else. I need to get back in to card making and seeing your cards today has given me the urge to have a go.

Littlelamb said...

All lovely cards Sue but not something I would make myself but that doesn't mean to say I don't like them I do. Saba sorry you are shivering. Know how you feel. I spent all day in a cold ice rink but lovely to see my Granddaughter and GtGranddaughter together. There is 2 years between them and they get on so well. Never want to say goodbye. Usually tears.

Hi Sue,
I don't know how you come up with do many ideas. I'm sure all of the recipients of these would love them.
Gosh Maureen, I bet that raised a few eyebrows on Northumberland Street! I know what you mean about having your clothes cut off too - when I fell in the garden in January and dislocated my artificial knee the paramedics had to cut my Rohan trousers off me , or should I say cut 1 leg off! When I woke up in my hospital bed the next morning I looked a right sight in them! I had to ask for a pair of scissors to cut the rest off as I couldn't move my leg - oh the indignity off it! Well I'm sorry that I missed the tale but am really pleased that you are now recovering . Love and hugs Alison xxx
