A card, a candle and a tag!

This is my DT project for Die Cut Dreams Challenge this week. Our challenge is 'Sage and Onion Stuffing Colour Combo' and the prize this week is a two week Guest Design Team spot and I'm the judge this time!! So get your entries in and check out the fab creations by the rest of the Design Team here.

I'm entering this for these challenges:

I used all Stampin' Up products for the card and a few extras on the candle. The candle was so easy to make, cut out a piece of white tissue paper, stamp your images and then heat set onto a candle using a piece of greaseproof paper. The ribbon is from my stash and has so much sparkle and glitter on it - goes so well with the Old Olive colour from SU. I thought stamping the envelope to match was a cute touch.

And now for my news.....after being Guest Designer at Cupcake Crafts Challenge for November, I've been invited to join the team permanently. I said yes!! So I'll be there from next week.


Project Recipe:
  • Christmas Jingle Scrap Kit
  • Inks - Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Craft White
  • Stamps - Season of Joy, Tags for All
  • Linen thread
  • Scallop border punch
  • Eyelets - metallics
