HLS CAS – Flames or Fire

Hello. I am continuing to be a guest designer for Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge – and this time the theme is ‘Flames or fire’. Here is my card:

This card took a lot of thinking about – a lot. I was going to go down the fireplace route, then I was going with camp fire, then birthday candles – so much choice actually – but I decided to go with some candles – as you see here.

This is a Stampin Up set – the outline, then a couple of stamps for the filling patterns of the candles, then a stamp for the flames. I ke0pt the colour scheme quite muted, the same on each candle, so the flames seem to stand out more. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Instead of stamping directly onto a card base, I decided to stamp and die cut the image with a stitched square – just one layer, still CAS, but some added interest.

I hope you can come and join us in our challenge – there are also some other challenges going live each month – a water-colour challenge, a die-cutting challenge, a Christmas Challenge, and even a stencil challenge.

I hope you can come and join us in at least one of our challenges – I look forward to seeing you there. xx

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  1. Great CAS card. Your candles are wonderful with a delicate pattern. The bright color is also beautifully selected. And I totally agree that placing candles on the stitched square makes the image more distinctive.
