The Long Grey Days of Winter

Grey Day stamped scene

It always seems like the dull grey of winter will never pass. but it always does eventually. There are not only grey days of our seasons but also grey times in our lives. I decided to take this opportunity while being stuck indoors to tackle some of my html computer monsters. An overhaul of my blog was well over due and took longer to figure out some aspects of it. That being said, I hope you find it enjoyable and please let me know if there are features not working properly (and how I’m supposed to fix them!!)

Here is another card using Stampscapes stamps. Making a scene in black and white actually takes a number of colors to achieve the depth to tone. I usually use Marvy Matchables Inks A subtle blue called Salvia Blue, Pale Orange, and Grey with a bit of Black on the edges.
March isn’t so far away.

Flameless Candle Embellishing

Flameless Candle Embellishing

Embellishing flameless candles are a great way to personalize gifts and home decor. The first candle uses a rubber stamp from Impression Obsession, clear ink, sticky powder, and Martha Stewart glitter On the second I used gold vellum paper, a Martha Stewart punch, and the entire surface is covered in clear micro beads.(although it doesn’t show in photo) I also used a wedding photo covered in micro beads on a candle in a previous post. Lots more ideas on the way.

Happy crafting!.
