Today, we are featuring the "Seasonal Poinsettias" and "Time To Chill" stamp sets.
For my card, I used the wreath and one of the sentiments from the "Seasonal Poinsettias" set. I stamped the wreath in black ink then colored it with Copic markers. The papers used are white, Scarlett Red and Speedy the Cat Black from Mark's Finest Papers. I ran the white panel through a "Merry Christmas" Sizzix embossing folder. To complete the card I added flocked red brads and a wide-striped ribbon from Stampin Up.
For this project, I decorated a candle with the large poinsettia stamp from the "Seasonal Poinsettias" set. I stamped the flower onto tissue paper then colored it with Copic markers. I cut around the flower then placed it on the candle. I slowly "melted" the image onto the candle with my heat gun. I added some micro-glass beads to the center of the flower to finish it off. I plan to make more of these candles to give to co-workers, teachers, and others for Christmas gifts.
I made this card with several of the stamps from the "Time to Chill" stamp set. I wanted to create and masculine and "woodsy" feel, so I used a plaid patterned paper and zig-zag stitching, along with the deer. I colored this noble buck with Copic markers then placed him on a frame made with Nestabilites dies. The papers used are Scarlett Red and Seeds of Thyme from Mark's Finest Papers and Basic Grey's Jovial paper pad, also available at MFP. I completed the card adding the sentiment, stamped snowflakes, and large red bow.
