Today I am sharing this candle holder I made for the Dare 2 B Artzy Blog Hop.  This would make a super easy and cute gift for anyone on your list!

I started by cutting my transparency to fit my candle holder.  I stamped my poinsettia and greeting with Dare 2B Artzy's Poinsettia Tangle onto the vellum using Dare 2B Artzy's Totally Black ink.

I then turned my vellum to the back side and colored the images with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I used GB5, DR1, DR3, DR5, DR6,  and DR7.

Thanks for stopping by!  
Your next stop in the hop is Monica's  blog! 
We hope you are inspired all along the way!  
Check out all D2BA's products here!
Happy Hopping!

Embossed Vellum Card


Hi Chris here and today I would like to share with you this embossed poinsettia card. To create this card I started by creating the card base with cardstock.  I then added the green cardstock and punched the border for some visual interest.
I then added the Holly Days paper and the cut away strip from the Poinsettia paper as an accent. I then stamped the Poinsettia with Versamark and added white embossing powder. I filled in the center of the poinsettia with red Stickles. While that was drying I stamped and embossed my greeting. Here is a close up. To finish off the card I added some hand cut holly leaves.  Hope you are inspired to get stamping!
