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.

So pretty! I tried a couple of these candles for Christmas and none of mine turned out so beautifully.

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.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
