The first night of Hanukkah is a little over five weeks away! Wow! It is on the early side this year, or as my dad would say, December is late this year…
I figured I had better crackin’ on the Hanukkah cards, so I decided to use this week’s Saturday Sketch Challenge from Stampin’ 411 for another one.
I debated what little images I would use in the focal image. I played around with creating my own menorah using the single candle stamp from Party Hearty, but I wasn’t happy with how it turned out. I’m going to have to work on that idea some more. Instead I used the menorah stamp from Holiday Blitz for both the main image and the images down the left side. I also used my silver Encore ink, which I hadn’t opened in a while. I had forgotten how fabulous it was! Here’s what I came up with:
Stamps: Holiday Blitz, Shalom Sayings
Ink: Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Silver Encore
Paper: Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Brushed Silver, Whisper White
Other: Silver Cord, Eyelet Border Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig
Thanks for looking!
