Kindred Stamps Blog Hop - Hanukkah

Thanks for joining Kindred Stamps for their next release's blog hop!  If you started at the Kindred Stamps site, you are in the right place!  Your next visit will be with Rachel at R Winn Creates.

I was so excited to be asked to Guest Design again for the release this October 13!  I was sent the Hanukkah stamp set, and I really enjoyed playing with the two Jewish kids and sentiments.  I decided to create a card collection--the colors are the same, I used either gold or silver for accent and embellishment, and used the same gorgeous navy glimmer cardstock on all cards and the tag.  True to The Frolicking Fairy fashion, I added a fun sentiment to one card that I hope no one finds offensive--it is meant to make someone smile.  I hope you enjoy the four cards I made, and the cute layered tag to complete this set.

The first card is a cute play on the word "Holidays" and is a sentiment found in this new set.

I embossed the challah loaf in gold on watercolor cardstock, and painted the loaves using the three shades of distress ink shown.

Next, I used Stormy Sky distress ink to paint the background.

I embossed the yarmulke in gold on a strip of vellum and the sentiment "Happy Challah Days" on a circle of navy glimmer cardstock.  To finish, I mounted the watercolored panel onto a piece of the same navy cardstock the same size as the card front.

My silly card!  I actually should have waited until the Nuvo crystal drops were dry to photograph this card, but you can see how the drops dried in the top picture.  :)  Below, I will breakdown in pictures what colors I used for her hair, and how I added the colors to create that beautiful head of curly hair!

I used the oh, so amazing Delicata ink on this card - no embossing.  This ink is so shimmery and beautiful!  I wanted to create the illusion of glowing candles in the menorah.  I painted Delicata ink onto the stamped menorah image to give it a beautiful metallic shimmer, and added Glossy Accents to the flames.  I also added some of the ink to the girl's dress trim.  You can really see how beautiful the glimmer cardstock is in the photo below.

My final card is a spinner.  That is what dreidels do after all!

Below is just a quick peek of the card's construction.  Nothing fancy!  You can visit my previous blog HERE that goes into more depth on another spinner card I made.

As a quick, final project, I created a very simple tag that reads "Happy Hanukkah" embossed in silver.  It is a layered tag so the sender can write a note or "To/From" under the front tag piece.
