I should be all fresh for the weekend after I finish work today. Housework is all done, just got to tidy my craft room, ummmmmmmmmm, not such an easy task, it currently looks like a bomb has dropped on it, lol, nothing new there then!
I am showcasing to you today one of the new Molly Harrison Christmas release stamps, which Teresa at Crafts and Me will be releasing on Monday and if you are a subscriber to the Crafts and Me newsletter you will receive 10% off during next week. If your not currently a subscriber just hop on over to the blog and register, it's FREE!
I thought rather than do a card I would show you another use for this beautiful Angel stamp so here is my Christmas candle which I have made for a friend of mine in Turkey. Being of the jewish religion they do not celebrate Christmas but she would love to have some decorations, but nothing too big like a christmas tree as it wouldn't be acceptable, so I thought this would be a perfect gift, plus it's her birthday on Christmas Eve.
I have coloured her using copics but it's difficult to blend on tissue paper so think I will give this a go next time using chalks.
I have made the tube using accetate.
I got carried away with the star dust glitter!
This is the lid. I embossed the top using the snowflake cuttlebug folder and added the Marianne Design poinsetta with a beautiful lilac rose from wild orchid crafts to the middle.
We have a super challenge over at Crafts and Me Challenge blog this week, running for two weeks, which is to create a Chrismas Gift. So if you want to give the candle and gift tube a go here's a tutorial which would fit nicely into our challenge. Hope to see you there!
