Last week you were invited, this week we sit at the table with The Cuttlebug Spot. The team has some up with place cards, napkin rings and table decorations sure to inspire I've finally gotten the hang of my Heartfelt Creations stamps and Nestie combos to bring you a decorated candle (battery operated so no chance of fire) and matching place cards.
I've used the Aztec Gold Sunflowers Set 1 & 2, along with the coordinating Blossom 2 Nesties. These stamps are a limited edition, only available through 12/31/10 so if you love sunflowers, grab them while you can. I stamped, cut the layers in my Cuttlebug, inked and then ran the large flowers through my Cuttlebug again with the Swiss Dots folder for more texture. The matte copper and gold leaves are from the Cuttlebug Maple Leaf 3 x 3 combo. I've added the embellies to a burlap band with some raffia ties.
The matching place card is cut with the largest of the Nesties Labels Twelve die folded in half. It was embossed With the Sizzix Tim Holtz Burlap folder and inked. The small sunflower was embossed with the dotted folder from the Butterfly 3 x 3 Combo because of the smaller scale and the leaves are punched (not sure of the brand) and the veins are scored using my Martha Stewart Score board. The initial is cut with the Cuttlebug Curls and Swirls Alphabet. The team has come up with beautiful creations this week so stop by The Cuttlebug Spot and be sure to play along for a gift certificate to The Craft Barn.
