Halloween Luminarias

These were VERY fun to make!  I used the tutorial on SCS , and heat embossed stamped images instead of adding diecuts as per the tutorial.  I went to the dollar store for some 2 for $1 electric tealights - they're awesome!  Here's a picture using a flash on my camera:
The paper is last year's Cast A Spell, and the dotted DSP is from this years Wicked Fun.  The stamps are from House of Haunts and From the Crypt.  I used SU Vellum and heat embossed the images with versamark, black ink and black embossing powder.  Vellum creates incredible embossed images! I'm going to line my walkway with these on Halloween night.  For now, they will sit in my window sill at night so they can be seen from the street.   I hope they inspire you to have a BOO-tiful Halloween!

Still Grateful.........

Hi Everyone!  I've really missed posting on my blog!  The good news is that yes, my insurance will pay for a new camera!  Bad news is I haven't replaced it yet and I won't get a check from the insurance company for another few weeks.  I wanted to post something, and I did find this picture of a card I made a few weeks ago but never posted.  The dsp is from the new Autumn Spice collection on page 13 of the Holiday Mini.  I love this paper and the coordinating stamp, Day of Gratitude!  I've used Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and some Peach Parfait for cardstock and ink here.  I used the extra large round tab punch for the label.  The sentiment was stamped on a 1 inch strip of paper, then punch with the same punch and overlayed onto my mat label.  I used my Blossom Party die to cut the flowers that are overlayed on the large stamp from Days of Gratitude.  I used the color spritzre tool and my Early Espresso marker to spritz some color to my cardface.  This was a fairly quick card and I'm looking forward to making some more!  Thanks for looking!
