Christmas Candles Cards

This post might be an overload but I thought it was too repetitious to do in single posts. All of the cards use a candle stamp that I heat embossed with some different embossing powders. The stamp itself is not square shape which threw me off so I hand cut the image out on each one.

The first one I used a gold matte embossing powder and colored the candles in with distress markers. It would have worked better had I used watercolor paper. Lesson learned-maybe. The holly paper is by Anna Griffin and the red is unknown. The sentiment is also unknown but the ampere is a Quickutz die out of gold paper.



This next one is embossed with a glitter gold by Stampendous. It's not my favorite because I can't seem to get the whole image with a consistent glitter to powder ratio. I think it's me because another card maker loves the glitter embossing powders. The background and green paper is by Making Memories and the die cut is by Sizzix/Tim Holtz.


I tried the glitter embossing again and still don't care for it. The sentiment stamp is from the same unknown stamp set from above. The red cardstock is sprayed with Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.


Then I went way out there and tried a different color combo. Silver embossing (Hero Arts) with Faber-Castell colored pencils to color in the candles. Background paper and ribbon by Stampin Up. I'm not sure about the strip of paper in the center but the oval behind the image (which I cut in half to show it on the top and the bottom and is not centered) is cardstock by Coredinations. The oval was a negative of a Cricut cut.


That's all for now. Thanks for looking.
