Hello and welcome to this month’s One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop.  This month we are hopping early for the November One Stamp At A Time (OSAT) Blog Hop.  You may be coming from Tina Riddle’s Blog or you may be starting right here at my blog either way we are glad that you are here and I wanted to welcome you.  This month our theme is Winter Holiday.  I wanted to do something that could be used both for Christmas or after.  Here’s a look at my projects for this month’s hop.

For my 3d project this month I wanted to create something that could be either given as a gift or used as decoration for your Holiday Decor or on your Holiday Table.  So, I created a wrapped candle using the same technique.  I took a piece of the Champagne Foil and cut it out using the same way as the card but only cutting the stitched detail out on one side.  Next I die cut the snowflakes on a sheet of whisper white cardstock.  I then wrapped the stitched edged Champagne foil piece around the candle and used a little bit of Fast Fuse to secure it around the candle.  I took the strip of Snowflakes and started attaching it to the foil wrapped candle using my Fine Tip Glue Pen, holding each one in place until it dried.  I continued around the foil piece until I got all the way around.  I then took the Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and tied around the whisper white strip that the snowflakes are attached to to hid it.  This also added another little piece of shimmer and glamour to the already glamorous looking candle.

This little detail that I added to the plain candle took it from ordinary to extraordinary in just a matter of minutes.  I can differently see a lot of these getting created for one of our mantels this year, as decoration for the Holidays.  I also added one of the smallest Rhinestones from the Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the center of each Snowflake.  As I am sitting here writing my blog post it just hit me that the Black Rhinestones would be very cute in the center of each one also.

I went with colors that you could find during the Holiday season, and during Winter.  I picked the cool blue of Pool Party as one of the main colors and added in both Whisper White, Basic Black, and the Champagne Foil.
