Hi everyone! The H&M stamps DT members have some awesome projects to show you for this month's blog hop. The theme this month is festive favorites. I made 2 candle and card sets to show you.
For the candles I stamped the images onto tissue paper and adhered them to my candle with wax paper and a heat tool. I then added stickles to them for some sparkle
For this card I stamped the holly leaves with my essential glue pad and sprinkled it with green glitter. I stamped the berries and painted royal red shimmerz over them.
I thought I would just show you how I made the snowflake wreath. First, I drew a circle in pencil using my CM circle cutter as a template.
Next, I started stamping my solid snowflakes around the circle lining up the notches on the snowflakes with the circle. I also started toward the bottom of the wreath so if it overlapped on the bottom the ribbon would cover it. I love these stamps for this because they are clear you see through them for perfect placement. I am sorry but this photo is a bit blurry but I hope you get the idea.
I then used my line snowflake stamp and stamped them in between the solid snowflakes using the line on the snowflakes to fit on the circle. This photo shows it a little better.
Continue stamping so the entire circle is filled then erase your pencil line. I also did one using only the line snowflake.
I like the combination of the solid and line snowflake images together though. I accented the snowflakes with stickles and a rhinestone in the center. I added my bow at the bottom and used my Marvy scallop corner punch on the top corners of the card. Here is a closer view of the finished card.
All of my projects use the H&M Stamps Create a bulb stamp set. If you have any questions please just let me know.
