A Love Duet from Guest Designer Tina McDonald

Hello all! I am back again to share a couple more projects with you today using Quietfire designs. I have loved creating with these stamps throughout the month and will be continuing to do so right thru Valentine's day, coming up in just a couple of weeks!! And for that matter.... i don't think I'll be stopping just because Valentine's day is past! These are fabulous to use all thru the year!! So, let's get on with it shall we?

Today I will be sharing with you a card  as well as a candle!!

To create this card, here is what i did...
1. Create card base from black card stock 5" square. Trim striped paper slightly smaller. Distress edges and adhere to card front.
2. Trim cream card stock slightly smaller. Emboss using Spellbinders embossing folder and embossing machine (see supplies below). Adhere to card front. Machine stitch around edges.
3. Diecut black Royal circle die #3 (with #1 being the smallest).
4. Stamp sentiment onto cream card stock. Diecut using Standard Circles Lg.Nest together 2 circle dies and die cut striped paper to create a ring. Adhere to die cut sentiment.
5. Adhere black Royal Circle to card front using foam tape. Thread red ribbon thru and adhere to back of card front.
6. Adhere sentiment circle using foam tape. Tie ribbon into a bow and adhere, along with twine and flower.
7. Add pearls.

Awesome idea, I used to put images into the hot wax (pictures),to make candles this is so much easier. maybe I need to get my wax out and try this for stamping!
