I feel so incredibly fortunate to find myself in the company of these talented ladies. Even one year into joining the team, I still have to pinch myself on the regular. I just want to take a moment to thank Nichole, Julie, and Jane for their patience, confidence, and kindness over the past year. I owe them so much. I also want to thank all of you. Your enthusiasm and support have been unbelievable. Seriously, somebody pinch me.
Ok, enough gushy stuff...let's get on to the fun!
Today's challenge is to create a project using one of the freebie images on the download you can find on Nichole's blog. Six lucky stampers will win a custom stamp set including a personalized address and "created by" stamp. How super cool is that?! The image I've designed for you to use today is the little candle trio.
On my first card I've die cut the candle image and mounted it to a polka dotty base embellished with a strip of decorative vellum, a bit of ribbon, and glittered flames.
On my second card I printed the candles directly on the base (you should be able to do something similar with photo editing software if you're so inclined) and added a layer of textured cardstock. A paper banner, some colored rhinestones, and glazed flames finished the whole thing off.
So what are you waiting for? Get on over to Nichole's blog to download the freebies and get cracking!
