Let's Light some Christmas Candles...

Hi all and welcome to the Grand Finale of Flourishes' October Release! Have you enjoyed the Christmas offerings so far? If you answered yes, I have some good news for you! All four of Flourishes' brand new sets are now LIVE in the store! So you can click HERE to see them all in their full glory! Today's last hop involves a set that is sure to light up your holidays!



Light up the joy and wonder this holiday season with this beautiful set called Christmas Candles penned by Marcella Hawley. Stamp up a candlescape, a set of votive candles or a beautifully decked out hurricane lamp. This 4 by 6" clear set comes with three wonderfully scripted sentiments to share the spirit of the season!

On to my creation!
Because this set is just, in my opinion, full of beautiful imagery, I wanted my main image to sing without a lot of extras. So, I chose a simple layout with Spellbinders Labels Fourteen (cut thanks to my Grand Calibur). I stamped my votive image on Classic White using Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored it up with Copic Markers. I used the Poppy, Fields, Sunflower and Flesh tones 1 collections grouped by Flourishes. I also shaded with a few of the lighter shades in the Cool Neutrals collection as well. I also added some paper piercing and a bit of stitching with some gold thread to give it all a little glimmer.

Here's a close up!

I added some decorative paper, a sewn gold edge and a sentiment from the set on the inside. 
Now, the fun part is, all of the papers, embellishments and ribbons are a part of a brand new 1,2,3, Create Kit called Sunshine. You can check out all that's offered in this fun kit below and can click HERE to see it in the Flourishes store!
