The Festive Table

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is to create accessories for your holiday table.  Place cards, napkin holders, favors, invitations…you get the idea.  I love the Cherry Cobbler card stock and this color is perfect for my Christmas table.  I created an invitation, favor, place card, luminary and candle.

The luminary was so easy to make.  You can click here for the pdf tutorial.  I punched the circle shape on all of the sides of my luminary which is optional.  You can punch only the front if you like.  I stamped the medallion from the Artistic Etchings stamp set with Cherry Cobbler on the vellum.  I glittered around the punched circle using Tombow liquid glue and Champagne Glass Glitter.  I then adhered the vellum to the back of all sides of my luminary.  I then assembled the luminary with sticky tape.  To light the luminary I used a battery operated candle which is safer than using a real candle.

To continue with the elegant look I heat embossed with gold the poinsettia image from the Bells & Boughs stamp set on the the invitation and the candle.  I also gold embossed the ‘You’re Invited’.  The candle stamping is also very easy.  You can click here for a written and video tutorial from SCS.

The favor was created using the Candy Wrapper die from the holiday mini.  I also stamped the ‘Dec 25’ from the Tags til Christmas stamp set and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch.  Love, love, love this punch.  I glittered the oval with Champagne Glass glitter.  The glitter is so easy to use.  Because of the size it doesn’t make a mess.  I wrapped the favor in the red medallion dsp from the Deck the Halls DSP then adhered the label.  You can fill the favor with peppermints or chocolates.  These will be a hit with your dinner guests.

The place card was also very easy.  I used the tag from the Tags til Christmas stamp set but I masked the ‘to and from’ then embossed the branch and pinecone image in gold.  I wrote the name with a gold pen and simply placed the card on the napkin ring.

So dress up your table for the holidays!  With a little creativity and imagination dressing up your table doesn’t have to break the bank.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Anything but a Card challenge 13

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is Anything but a Card.  With Mother’s Day around the corner I decided to decorate a candle.  I used the stamp set With All My Heart.  This stamp set is available until the end of April.  Please email me if you would like to order or simply click on the ‘Shop Now’ icon on the right to place your order online.  To add some bling I inserted the rhinestone brads while the wax was still warm.  Easy Peasy!  Click here for a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers on how to stamp on candles.

Hop on over to HSS and post your creation for this challenge.
