Advent Wreath for FMS 310

I was so excited by the candles in the Merry Patterns stamp set.  My first thought was that I could use them to create an Advent wreath with the masking technique.  I was also excited to get the chance to play with my Stampin' Blends markers to color in the candles.  If you love this card and want to recreate it for yourself, you have until tomorrow, October 31 to place an order worth $300 CSV to earn this exclusive stamp set for yourself.  Then, the Stampin' Blends markers will be available to purchase starting November 1.  They are alcohol based and make blending so easy and smooth.

I entered this card in Freshly Made Sketches and Watercooler Wednesday challenges.  Make sure you check out FMS310  and WWC142 to see the inspiration cards from the design team as well as the other creative entries.

There is a host promotion happening right now.  For any order placed September 1-October 31 of $300, you will earn a FREE Merry Patterns stamp set on top of your regular stampin' rewards.  If you and your friends would love to order from the 2017 Holiday catalog, contact me today to schedule a virtual workshop and set your goal to earn your FREE stamp set.
I have a couple openings for virtual workshops available in October if you would like to try to earn this stamp set and other FREE Stampin' Up! products

Use this code if your order is under $150.00 and I will send you a host gift with your thank you card from me. If your order is over $150.00 DON"T USE THIS CODE so you can choose your own host rewards.

  1. What a beautiful card, Angel. I love the way the foil designer paper catches the light. The candles look beautiful coloured with the Stampin' Blends, too. Great shading. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

    1. Thanks Heidi. I had to take pictures from various angles to make sure the foil didn't catch my reflection. :)

  2. Love how you've used this stamp set! Beautiful colours and use of the gorgeous foil designs against the black background. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.
