Winter’s Eve Christmas Luminaire

Winter’s Eve Christmas Luminaire

Hi everyone!  Welcome back for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday inspiration!  As you are probably aware I absolutely love Luminary’s.  I always have a candle or 2 going at my house so I look forward to special seasons where the candle, or in this case battery operated tea lights, are the centerpiece.  I used the party lantern found here as inspiration and modified it to fit my needs.

Products Used:

HCPC-3680 – Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3747 – Celebrate the Season Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3791 – Festive Holly & Cardinals Cling Stamp Set

Project Instructions:

Other products:  Cut File, White Card Stock, Green Glitter Paper, Velum, Tim Holtz Curio Knobs, Fine Detail Embossing Powder, Bling from my stash, Archival Inks (Red Geranium and Watering Can), Christmas Red Stickles,  Distressed Ink Fossilized Amber and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by creating your Luminare according the the instructions found here out of white card stock using paper from the Winter’s Eve Paper Collection along with Green glitter paper for the accent panels.  The large Poinsettia flower on the top was stamped on white card stock using Frost White ink and heat embossed with Fine Detail Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die and distressed with Red Geranium ink before shaping with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and accenting with bling.  The smaller Poinsettia flowers were stamped on white card stock using Watering Can ink before die cutting with the matching die and distressed with Red Geranium before shaping with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  All the Holly Berry vine images were stamped on white card stock with Northern Pine and die cut with the matching dies before distressing with Cottage Ivy and shaping with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and finally accented with Christmas Red Stickles.  The images of the candle in the window were stamped on white card stock using Northern Pine and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Cottage Ivy and Fossilized Amber and finally accented with Christmas Red Stickles.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Have a wonderful day!

    I just love your lantern. I have already purchased the pattern and am going to make 8 of these to line the entryway to our church for Advent services on Wednesday night. I think it will make a special touch. Thank you so much for the inspiration! I enjoy your art very much. Blessings.
