I Want Candy!

Reported by Lexi Daly

A Muse Creative Candy, that is! Creative Candy is A Muse’s line of sticker embellishments for paper crafting, including Twinkle Stickers in several shapes and sizes and Clear Stickers in several shapes as well. Once I found them, I fell in love and always have a good supply on hand, so I don’t have to worry about using too many!

Twinkle Stickers are definitely one of my favorite bling things. They are self-adhesive gems that come in four basic shape multi-color packs and a clear assortment pack. The main shapes are micro dot, mini dot, mini heart, and mini star. The colors in the multi-color packs are yellow, red, teal, dark pink, light blue, and light pink. The clear assortment includes the same four shapes along with an additional larger dot and a tear drop. The sticker gems are stuck to a sheet of plastic in strips of the same color in the multi-color packs and the same style in the clear pack. You can snip off individual twinkles or use a partial or whole strip at once.

Here are a few cards I’ve created with these blingy beauties…

A single micro dot makes a great cherry on top!

One on every scallop for a sweet focal frame.

Short rows of uncut micro dots are perfect to hang a sign!

And a few clear teardrops make great light bulbs!

Clear Stickers, the other type of A Muse Creative Candy, are clear epoxy stickers about 1.5″ wide in four shapes–scallop circle, scallop square, scallop oval, and circle. I’ve seen them used on cards on a focal image and I’ve seen them used to create ornaments and key chains. There are so many possibilities!

Here are a few cards I’ve created with them…

a scallop square makes a great block of ice!

I love covering a focal point with a Clear Sticker and adding glitter to the extra exposed edge.

And the scallop oval works with a Marvy scallop oval punch for the perfect thought bubble, especially when paired with a few twinkles leading up to it!

Overall, I really love the A Muse Creative Candy. The Twinkle Stickers make it easy to add a little or a lot of bling and the Clear Stickers are great for unique and fun touches. I really can’t think of any negatives! The Twinkle Stickers retail for $3.25/package and you can buy them directly from A Muse here (scroll all the way down). The Clear Stickers are $3.99/package and can easily be added to your order. Both can be found where A Muse stamps are sold.

I love candy! If you have great ideas for using A Muse Creative Candy, I’d love to hear them!
