Happy Chanukah

Chanukah is almost upon us, and I needed 6 Chanukah cards.  I decided to challenge myself to make them all with CAS-ual Friday's 8 Happy Nights stamp set.  And, happy coincidence, the challenge at CFC 188 is Winter Blues, a perfect choice for Chanukah cards. 

I made this card by stamping the dreidel in Delicata Silver onto 3 different shades of blue paper, fussy cutting the dreidels and hanging them from a line, creating a festive Chanukah banner.

I used 2 of the little stars in the stamp set to create flames for the candles on the menorah, stamped on a die cut rectangle and framed in blue with PTI Infinity Frames.

I stamped and white heat embossed the words to the dreidel song along the left edge of the card, and created a stamped background with tumbling dreidels stamped in various Altenew blue inks.  The sentiment is also white heat embossed.

This next card was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #249.  I challenged myself to use the tiny little row of dreidels and repeatedly stamped it at the bottom of the card.  I fussy cut 2 dreidels that were white heat embossed and then added texture to the card front.

For my next card, I clear embossed my stamp, and then sponged over the stamped area, adding some sequins and also distress inking the edges.

And, last up is that fun word menorah again.

Cards done...

Thanks for Visiting
