Whether you are looking for a way to add sparkle for your table or a unique teacher gift Stampin' Up! has the solutions. I would be thrilled to get this candle from someone.
Where did I get my Mojo?
Inspired by a fellow Pal, Shannon Jaramillo. I took a battery operated pillar candle (you can get these by the half dozen at Costco) and added some pizazz. It started with a 2" band of Red Glimmer Paper. Then I stamped the leaves and poinsettia from the Joyful Christmas Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and used a green embossing powder and Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler Emboss Powder. The embossed elements are super easy to cut out and layer. Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details provide the holly berries finishing touch.
Tips: I used Stampin' Up's Multipurpose Glue for the red glimmer band and had some difficulty with it setting. So I simply used my heat gun to heat up the wax slightly and it magically stuck in place! Craft glue dots were the best solution to getting the pointsettia and leaves to stick to the red glimmer paper.

It's time for another Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge! I really like the colors is this week's challenge:
Where did my Mojo come from?
Well some of it came from the fact that I had limited Rich Razzleberry card stock so I knew I needed to use Rich Razzleberry ink as my main resource to meet the color challenge. So as the saying goes "Necessity is the mother of invention".
I grabbed the Wonderfall stamp set and the Autumn Accents Die and made the leaf using Rich Razzleberry. The Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon adds the missing color to my card.
Now to put the elements together… The Stampin' Up1 Stripes Embossing Folder added much needed dimension to the Whipser White card stock, yet I only applied it to the bottom section of the card stock. Rich Razzleberry was used to create the sentiment from the Happy Day stamp set for the top of the card. A Crushed Curry candy dot was the finishing touch.
Here was another version I did…
I think the Whisper White base provides a crisper look. Which one do you prefer? Leave me a comment to let me know!
Thanks for stopping by today. Cheers,
Perhaps I shouldn't say this, but I LOVE this card. The Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds takes the card from cute baby card to a WOW baby card.
Where did my Mojo come from?
I do not have baby stamp sets due to where I am in my life right now. So when I need to make a baby card I rely on using other stamp sets in a unique way. I recently created a card with the Zoo Babies stamp set (see that post here) and I wanted to do something different. Once again I did a search in Pinterest. Nothing was catching my eye until I found a card with a rattle on the front. That was all I needed. There was no name to acknowledge for the inspiration, so whoever originated the idea – Thank You!
The rattle was easy to create with my circle punches and a thin slice of Pink Pirouette card stock. I stamped my Versamark Stamp pad half-way up the large circle then sprinkled with Stampin' Up's Heat n' Stick powder. With a little heat from my heat gun the powder turns sticky. Then you sprinkle on the Dazzling Diamonds and work it into the area. Shake off the excess. Then step back and go WOW!
I used the Scallop Trim Boarder punch for the finishing touch on the rattle. This created a clean border between the dazzling diamonds and the "plain" side of the rattle.
A little ribbon finishes it all off.
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite stamp set is for baby cards?
