I have 2 projects to share with you today! The first is a card.

Card Size: 4" x 5"

I used the beautiful rubber stamp called Music Gives You Wings, and added minimal colour to showcase it. I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of CS and used Spellbinder's Labels 16 to cut it out and mounted it with pop dots. My light box seems to wash out the colour, but the black is darker in real life, in the photo is looks kind of gray.


The card looked a little bare without ribbon (if you follow me, you know I love my ribbon, lol), so I added a flourish for some dimension. It was the perfect touch without taking away from the image.

Inside:

White is always difficult to photograph, so it's difficult to see but I used white swiss dotted CS for my card base, I stamped a flourish from the rubber stamp set Beautiful inside.

Recipe: CHF SS-Music Gives You Wings & Beautiful, CS-Black & White Swiss Dot, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Black, Spellbinders-Labels 16, Memory Box-Elegant Scrollwork, Foam Squares, Copics-Skin E0000, E00, E01, Hair YR30, YR31, Y00, Shirt R81, Pants B95, Sentiment B02, V04.


The second project I have to share with you are candles that match my card.

Large Candle: 5.25" workable space
Small Candle: 3.25" workable space

If you haven't 'stamped' on candles or need a refresher, I have a Tutorial HERE you can follow, it's super easy and so much fun.

I stamped the images onto tissue paper, cut them out and attached them to the candles. I then embellished them with rhinestones and stickles. The heart shape was super easy to cut out because the wrinkle that occurs when folding the tissue paper in half, smooths out when you heat it onto the candle.

Some close-ups:

I added velvet ribbon along the top and bottom and a few rhinestones.


The flourish is from the rubber stamp set Beautiful, I stamped it on tissue paper using Aged Mahogany Distress Ink, the colour remains quite beautiful when attached to the candle. At the back I added the word 'Beautiful', and I added gold Stickles around the edge of the heart.

Recipe: Candles, CTMH Ink-Black, Distress Ink-Aged Mahogany, Rhinestones, Velvet Ribbon, Gold Stickles, White Tissue Paper.


This would be a great gift set, with matching card for someone who plays the piano!
