Stained Glass Candle

>> Wednesday, December 12, 2012


As we creep another day closer to the 25th I woke up feeling like things were pretty much under control and that I had a good grip on all my Christmas chores - how cool is that?  Unfortunately this is a VERY mean prank played on me every year right before I find myself running around like a crazy woman trying to get it all done.  It wouldn't be Christmas without chaos in my world!

My card today started because I got some left overs the other day.  You know the foil leftover containers?  Well there was this great big pile of extra foil lids and I suddenly remembered that you could paint on them with glass paint.  I was so excited that as soon as I got to my stamping desk I grabbed my stained glass and got stamping.  I didn't even take the time to decide what was going inside the stained glass!  I did have our religious challenge in mind...

So I stamped the Stained Glass on the foil lid using a blue stazon pad and then carefully dropped in my blue and purple glass paint.  I set that aside to dry and eventually stamped our Jumbo Candle and our Triple Holly on white to color and cut both out (I did an extra holly but only used 1 leaf and berry).  My card base is  white folded card stock that I shaded with lavender and stamped the bottom with our new Christmas Blessing using blue ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by and remember you still have today to post your card for our Religious Challenge and a new challenge starting tomorrow!  HO, HO, HO!

Oh my, Sue! Love your stained glass bg w/ the painted foil lids. I have dozens of those so now I need to use them, lol. From past experience, I also know you can color them w/ sharpies :) but I love your painted version.
