Pink Flamingo Candle

I made this Pink Flamingo Candle for my mother-in-law. She is in a group called The Pink Flamingos. I hope she liked it. Stampin Up! does have a flamingo stamp set, and I have it on my wish list. But it is retired and very rare. I hope to find a used set from another demonstrator some day.
Single Stamp is from Michael's.
Ribbon is from Michael's.
Glass candle stand is from Hobby Lobby.

Paris Candle

I made this for my niece, Caitlin. She LOVES Paris, so I couldn't wait to give this to her. She loved it and it looks so cute in her room!

Two More Candles Made With Cerise Designer Paper

Two more candles I made for Christmas gifts with the Cerise Designer Paper from Stampin Up!
One of the stamps is from the Snowfall Stamp Set (Christmas Mini Catty) and I put a stick-on sequin in the middle (from Archiver's).
The other stamp in from the 2002 Christmas Frame Fun Samp Set.
Ribbon is from Michael's.

These were my Christmas Gift Tags this year. So easy to make - and really fun, too.

York Peppermint Patties

I made these for the Kindergarten class, too. They are sooooo easy! Just attach the real red card stock (scallop punch) to the York Peppermint Patties with a glue dot!
SU! Stamp Set: Holiday Frame Fun (gingerbread man)
Embossing Powder: Silver

Snowman Soup

I made these for the Kindergarten kiddos last night. The treat bags contain: hot cocoa, marshmallows, a cinnamon stick, a candy cane, and 3 Hershey's kisses.
SU! real red CS, stamped with the snowman from the Holiday Frame Fun stamp set, white embossing powder.

Snowflake Ornament

Eli and I made this ornament 2 nights ago for his teacher. He thinks he made the whole thing. ;-)
Hollow glass ornament from Michael's.
Filled with Buffalo Snow and tiny silver bells (Michael's).
Acetate window sheet from Office Depot. Stamped on window sheet with white craft ink and SU! Snowfall Stamp Set. Then a light painting of crystal effects over the whole window sheet and dusted with blue/green glitter (Martha Stewart glitter from Michael's).
Ribbon from Michael's.

Christmas Cerise Candle

Here is a little craft that is very easy to do. I am hoping to make one for each of Eli's teachers, if I can find the time. The cost was about $6.50. It can be done much cheaper with candles from Hobby Lobby or Michael's, but I am partial to the White Barn candles.
Candle with tin lid from White Barn Candle Co.
Designer Paper: SU! Cerise
SU! Scallop punch, Real Red CS on lid with Snowman stamp from SU! Holiday Frame Fun, embossed in silver.
Ribbon from Michael's.

Ornament 3

This is the last one for tonight. I was very satisfied with this one...until...I sprayed with a protective coat of Krylon and...ugh...the ink started to bleed (as you can see). I was so ticked. Well, that is "art" for you, ha, ha.
Stamp Set: Not SU, is from Michael's
Ink: Black Stazon and Sharpie Markers
Diamond Dust around the edge is from Michael's (stuck on with liquid glue pen).

Christmas Ornament 2

I made this ornament tonight also.

Christmas Ornament 1

I made this ornament tonight. The acetate started to curl when I was heat embossing - so I need to find out how not to do that.
