Happy Hanukkah!

Today Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley created this beautiful Hanukkah card using all sorts of Core and textures. It’s a great way to accent the candles so each one core’dinates.  And of course, the Label Maker technique. One of our faves around here!

And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design team Member Melissa Oliveira.

For this layout, I used the Cling Decorative Grate CRR145 stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it onto Snowflake core, stamping the image twice with each inking, creating one dark image and one lighter image. I trimmed the images from the cardstock and layered two light and one dark image onto a piece of whitewash cardstock. Lines were scored around the stamped layers creating a “window pane” type of effect.

The trio of rosettes was created by punching large scalloped circles, sanding them and tearing them in a spiral shape, then twisting them around the end of a stylus and adhering with a glue dot. A turquoise pearl from Queen&Co. was used in the center of each rosette to mimic the baby’s headband in the photo.

I created the banner by punching a border along the edge of a strip of Chocolate Box cardstock then trimming 1 inch strips up the border design. Alphabet stickers were added and the pieces were adhered over bakers twine. Journaling was done on a lightly sanded piece of Whitewash using a typewriter. I used a pink die cut square layer that I cute from a die from Lifestyle Crafts and the cardstock is from the 6×6 Spotted collection.

And a close up of those gorgeous flowers!!! Add some May Arts Ribbon and other details and you have a great layout.
