Cone wreath Candle Holder

Yesterday I posted a picture of a glass jar that I had modified into a stamped candle holder.  Last night I decided to make a cone wreath for the candle holder to sit in.  I used last year's Christmas paper.  I also made a flower to put on top of the candle lid.

The pine cones came with another glass container I bought, so I added them to the wreath.  The poinsettias were made using the blossom petal punch and the small scallop circle punch.  Some gold glitter was placed in the center.

A Merry Little Wish - a partial Holiday catalogue case

This is the third card from the stamp set "Visions of Santa".  I used the Holiday catalogue as the source of  my inspiration. It's a quick and easy card to make.

I used  the scallop tag topper punch to make a tag using Basic Black card stock.  The image of the moose was embossed on it using white embossing powder.  Some Real Red satin woven ribbon was attached to the top and tied with a piece of twine.
The sentiment  is from the stamp set "Get Your Santa On" and was die cut using the Bitty Banner framelit.
The basic card is Mossy Meadow layered with Crumb Cake cardstock embossed with the Lucky star embossing folder.  I attempted to use the new Confetti Star edge punch but I see I still have a bit of practicing to do.

Beauty of the Season Candle Holder

I got this idea from Sandy Dailey, who described the technique on how to transfer a stamped image onto a glass surface.
Since I wasn't sure how my candle holder would turn out, I went shopping at the REstore and bought 2 glass jars for 50 cents a piece.  They actually turned out quite nice.

The image was stamped using Memento ink onto tissue paper from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and coloured using blendabilities.
I cut the tissue paper so that there was 1" extra over the top, covered the bottom, and overlapped 1/2" around.
Mod Podge was applied to the surface of the glass and the tissue paper gently wrapped around the glass candle holder.  A layer of Mod Podge was applied to the surface, and when dry I used a craft knife to remove the excess tissue paper at the top.  I then applied a second coat of Mod Podge.

This glass jar did not have a lid on it, but it did have a lip, so I wrapped a Real Red ribbon around the top and tied it into a bow.

I don't have a flameless candle yet, but I can just imagine what this will look like with it fluttering inside!
