Tea Light Candle Holder

Hi everyone.

We are just starting our 3rd week of 30+ and have to say I am so over it.  Cannot wait until we have some nights were the temp is around 12 -15c so we can get some sleep and the house can cool down some.

Anyhow,  today I would like to share with you an idea I found some time ago on the internet and have been busting to try it out.  It also happens to fit very well with this month challenge at Bizzy Becs - Love/Friendship.  It would sit very nicely on a table with a bunch of roses for a romantic dinner for two.

I had a lot of fun doing this and have recycled a Vegemite Jar, some tissue paper, a split ring, an old bead, some used black ribbon.  The butterfly charm was in a card making kit which are currently out of stock and are normally found here at Bizzy Becs.

The stamps used are all Stamp It and there is a great selection available for pre order at Bizzy Becs here. I have used Air Balloon, Traditional Cameral, Journal Cage and an old French Script and they were stamped onto the tissue paper with a black Archival Ink Stamp Pad.  To attach the tissue paper I used a gel medium onto the back of the tissue paper and jar and when it was dry went over the tissue paper to seal it further.

Thanks for looking hope you have had a wonderful weekend.

Happy creating

Hi and welcome to  a new challenge at Bizzy Becs Store Blog.  This month being February our challenge is Love/Friendship and is brought to you by our DT gal Sally.

The prize this month is a mystery surprise stamp from Wild Rose Studio and is kindly donated from Bizzy Becs online store.  So pop on over an check the fabulous inspiration this month from the rest of the DT gals.

I have kept my card this month quite plain and simple, but love the white and red.   To create my card  I  used Dark Room Stamp Set "Hearts" which I embossed with white and black embossing powder and a Memory Box Die "Virtuoso Music" onto White Bazzill card stock.

Dark Room Door stamps are available to preorder at  Bizzy Becs  together with Memory Box Dies, you can find them here.

With Valentines Day just around the corner now is the perfect time to get creating a make a card for that someone special in your life and at the same time join our challenge this month and be in the running for this months prize.

Thank you dropping by, happy crafting.
