Seasonal Lantern for the Inky Friends

Posted by on October 13, 2017

Welcome to the Inky Friends Inking up the Season Blog Hop! You may have just arrived from Mickey’s Blog, or if you are going backwards from Tanya’s Blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click this link to take you to the master list.

I was pleased to see that Stampin’ Up included a Hanukkah sentiment and menorah stamp in the holiday catalog this year. It is part of a variety of elements in the Seasonal Lantern stamp set. Some of the elements are perfect for fall, so I usedthem to make a birthday card for my sister-in-law, whose birthday was yesterday.

Ink: Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Very Vanila, Copper Foil
Other: Happy Birthday Thinlit

Since Hanukkah is eight days long, I thought it would be fun to create a set of eight cards, one for each night, with the menorah stamp. A corresponding number of candles is lit each night, and with a little masking I was able to make the cards match. Here is a look at all eight:

And here is a close up of the first and last: (I realized that I put the first one on the right, like the candles are lit and how Hebrew is read, instead of on the left like one would expect in English)
