Hello and welcome to our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. We have all been creating with "Candlelight Garden – December 2015 Stamp of the MonthStamp set. If you have arrived here from   Shaunna Richards - Passionate About Pages then you are in the right place. If you landed here another way, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. Follow the links, check out all the amazing ideas and eventually you'll come right back here to where you started.

Today I would like to share with you my two projects which features the Candlelight Garden – December 2015 Stamp of the Month 
available exclusively throughout December for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75. I love this stamp set SOoo much. 
I really love the Friend you're the Light in my life phrase. So I wanted to make a card with it. I had the Picture My Life™ White Pines Scrapbooking Program cards left from my last blog post and thought this card below made a lovely front of the card. To space it out I placed the stamps directly onto the PML card and then stuck the 2" X 6 1/2" My Acrylix® Block on the top. 



I backed the Picture My Life™ White Pines Scrapbooking Program card with Black Cardstock and then used the Corner Rounder. I trimmed the 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" Colonial White Cards & Envelopes, with Coral Shimmer Trim and layered the PML card and black cardstock with 3-D Foam Tape.


To finish the card off I used Mini Stapler and Mini StaplesI love the mini staples so much I used them a little bit too much. 

 After I finished my card, I played some more. I just got myself a heat gun and Ranger™ Clear Super Fine Embossing Powder and Ranger™ White Super Fine Embossing Powder so I wanted to have a play. 


I put VersaMark™ Ink  on the jar after I coloured it in and then put Ranger™ Clear Super Fine Embossing Powder over and heated it up. 
Next I wanted to try some of the emboss-resist techniques I had seen on Pinterest so I played with the VersaMark™ Ink and Ranger™ White Super Fine Embossing PowderAfter heating the embossing powder up I used Gypsy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad with a Sponge Daubers.


Remember this great stamp set Candlelight Garden – December 2015 Stamp of the Month is only available throughout December from your Close to My Heart Consultant

  3. I agree! The clear embossing over the top looks fantastic, I have never tried this - another technique to add to the list to try!
