Welcome to the first ever Hanukkah Blog Hop! We are so excited to be able to share with you some wonderful Hanukkah related projects. We’ll be posting 2 projects a week on Sundays & Wednesdays until the first day of Hanukkah on December 9th. There are 4 of us participating so that is a total of 9 hop days (one for each candle on the Hanukkiah) for a total of 36 ideas!
For my first project, I am using this week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. As you can see by the banner above (which I designed in My Digital Studio), any sketch with a big circle is fabulous for the Jewish Celebrations stamp set.
One of the great things about coloring stamps with markers is easily omitting parts that you don’t want. For this I omitted all of the candles except the shamash and the one for the first night. This way you can make Hanukkah cards specific to the night on which they will be given. I love the circles on the paper in the background — it reminds me of either latkes or Hanukkah gelt.
Stamps: Jewish Celebrations
Ink: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper
Other: 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon
