Candle Art

Happy Friday!!!!  I'm so excited to show you this candle.  I have done these before but this time I used embossing powder.  I wasn't sure if it would work but it worked beautifully, it looks like someone painted it on.  I started by stamping the big snowflake in versa mark ink on tissue paper and embossing it with Gold embossing powder.  Don't emboss it to long since the tissue paper is very thin, it will catch on fire fast.  Then I cut it out very close the edge of the stamped image and placed it on the candle embossed side up, covered it with waxed paper and heated just until the tissue paper melt into the candle.  The center of the snowflake is a glimmer brad.  I heated up the center of the candle and pushed the brad through.  The snowflakes around the bottom are done using the same method except they are stamped in cherry cobbler ink with no embossing.  I added some cherry cobbler dazzling details in the center of the small snowflakes.  It takes a while for the glitter to dry but it will dry. 

I'm so happy with how this turned out.  This would make beautiful decoration with a few candles together.  This was again the Snowflake Soiree Stamp set from the Holiday Catalog. On the other side of the candle I stamped the word Believe from that same set.  Well thats it for now, come back tomorrow for more stamping fun.

Easter

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.

Pintrest CASE

T.G.I.F.

Once or twice a month I get together with some friends to stamp, we have so much fun and are always looking forward to the next time we can get together.  This is one of the cards we made at our last get together.  This was a total CASE from pinterest.

I don't really have much to talk about today.  Took the day off work and I haven't gotten anything done.  I have so much to do and I can't seem to figure out where to start.  Anyways I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
