Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Anything But A Card

I love the Challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers - Anything But A Card.
I chose to do a candle.  Stamping on candles is just too much fun and quite addictive.

I used Ornamental Pine by Stampin Up and kept the design very simple.

All it takes is a candle, tissue paper and wax paper to create a fun candle.
There are several tutorials on You Tube.  Basically, you stamp your design on the tissue paper, color if necessary, cut around the design, place it on the candle, wrap with wax paper and use a heat gun and melt the design to the candle.  It takes a little practice to use the right amount of heat, but what the heck, just go for it.  They make great gifts and are so pretty.

Have a happy week!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Embossing

Happy Monday!  The Challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers is embossing.  It can be wet or dry.
I happen to love embossing.  It just adds so much pretty to any card.

For this challenge I used a Snowflake embossing folder by Darice.

I embossed white cardstock then added color with 3 different colors of Distress Ink pads.
The tree is from Stampin Up, Lovely as a Tree.  I added Wink of Stella to the tree and a little bow at the top.  A few sequins, a nice sentiment by Just Rite Designs and this card is finished.

This card will be donated to the Caring Hearts Card Drive as well as the one below.  I was hoping to make 50 cards this year, but I will be happy to get to 25.  I am just not a fast card maker. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Have a great week!  Hope you will take part in our challenge.
