Have you seen the great selection of new rubber stamps by Bianca Petroschi now available from Elizabeth Craft Designs. She has a line of stamps in high quality cling-mounted deep etched red rubber plus another line in clear photopolymer for easy see through positioning.
The stamp by Bianca that I used today is called Christmas Candlelight. I stamped the image three times on the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock. This card stock has beautiful texture and comes in two different paper weights. Copic Markers were used to color the stamped images. Glitter was added over the candle flames and dimensional berries were created with Love Letter, irRESISTible Pico Embellisher. I used the entire stamped image in the back, then cut out only the smaller candle from the second stamped image, then cut out the two poinsettias from the third stamped image. The poinsettias were shaped with Susan's Flower Tools. The three layers were attached together with dimensional tape to give it a three dimensional look.
I chose to create a stair step card. For the large center section, I used Fitted Frames 3 Curvy Rectangles for a background. I die cut the frame - which is one plate that includes all the frames - in both red and green card stock. I alternated colors fitting the frames back together. On the side panels, I used the heart die cut and a few of the dots from unused frames to decorate.
For a background for the candles, I used Susan's Garden Notes Carolina Window. I backed it with a piece of light blue Shimmer Sheetz. There is dimensional tape between the window frame and Shimmer Sheetz. To add more foliage behind the candles, I added Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs.
