You may or may not know it, but I am also a fan of cookie decorating and candle making! I've been a novice cookier and a candle maker for several years and when I have the time, I play! This year, I joined a few of my Facebook/Cookier/Periscope friends in a little secret cookier swap. I was assigned a person to send a special cookier treat to, as well as a homemade item. Since I don't ship my cookies in the mail (other than to my aunt in Iowa), I decided to make her a yummy soy candle...Candy Shop, House to Home and Doily Heart ATS. The Watermelon Fusion inked hearts stamped on the panel come from the Banner Party stamp set.
To create the background, I stamped the Doily Heart using Bubble Gum ink and stamped the graphic pattern in House to Home using Pineapple Smoothie ink. I splattered some Bubble Gum Silk onto the cardstock then used some copic markers to add additional "confetti" pattern to the design. I highlighted the Dark Roast sentiment with N3 Copic marker.
The stamped image was then diecut using the Journey Ovals Die set. I also incorporated the pennant die from Banner Party Dies (in pineapple fusion cardstock) for added movement in the card. To add a pop of Rich Coral red, I punched and applied a few hearts from the Love Is punch. Of course when I was finished, it was calling for a few heart doodles...so I obliged. :)
This stamped panel was attached to a Yummy Dots embossed Beach Breeze paper and mounted wonky-style to some Bubble Gum cardstock. A2 top fold Kraft cardstock was the obvious choice for this fun card. I can't get enough of amazing Kraft card bases!!! And...Last but not least, a card of mine is NEVER complete without a bit of fibers...so I added a cute little jute bow. Perfectly, perfect I say!
Some chocolate chip cookies, fun wrapped gifts and homemade soy candles...MMMMMM!
If you look closely, you'll see that I uses my FSJ stamps to decorate the label. I love that I can customize my candles with fun names and great stamped decorations!!!
