52CCT - Stash ....

....  Hello again!  We're almost at the end of my scheduled posts - I'll be back home today!  It's time for our Stash Challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card ThrowdownGill would like us to use both GLITTER and BLING on our cards.  Here's my take:

Season's Greetings - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Accessories: Stampin' Up! Card - Basic Black; Elizabeth Craft Candle Peeloffs; Martha Stewart Glitter; Gems


Going through my stash last month (for the July sticker challenge) I came across these fabulous candle peeloffs.  They have lovely open areas, just perfect for filling with glitter.  I picked five candles and put them on scrap white card.  Then it was simply a process of colouring an area with a glue pen, allowing it to get touch dry and then adding glitter.  I used a selection of blues, greens and greys for the candle bodies and for the flames red and gold.  Once completely dry I cut them all out and adhered them to the card base.  The three largest candles are flat, bu the two smaller candles were attached with dimensional gel.  I finished the front with a flourish of turquoise gems and a simple silver sentiment.

Check out the blog to see more inspiration cards from the rest of the Design Team.  That's all for now!  See you soon.
