It's Candle Time!!

Having some fun playing with some candle ideas I saw on several blogs recently.  I so LOVE all the ideas everyone shares so that we can ALL make really cool projects! I played with two versions and now just need to decide which one I should do for my upcoming Christmas gift idea class....decisions...decisions! 

My buddie, Kellie Gregg, showed me this box pattern provided by Tanya Boser on SU! Stampin' Connection (for demonstrators exclusively) and we talked about how it would look with some nice pretty blue snowflakes.  So for this one I made it with Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Whisper White, and used a piece of non-SU silver as a mat. I used the Serene Snowflakes set for stamping the candles and box.  Spritzed it all with some White Shimmer Paint mixed with alcohol to add a little glitz and a rhinestone to top off the snowflake punches. I just LOVE it!! Think it turned out pretty cool for my first try! 

I saw another version with a square box style on Jill Hilliard's website and wanted to see which box / sets I would like better.  But - they are both too stinkin' cute and oh so much fun to make that now I am confused on which one we will do for class.  Whatcha think?

Thanks for looking ... off to work on more goodies for my class next weekend!
Until next time ... Happy Stamping!
