Place a candle in the window to shine the way home for Christmas

IMG_0193Christmas is the most Sentimental time of the year! For me, it is when all hearts come home. The family gathers together to share a meal, stories, laughter and love. For the advent of Christmas I place candles (LED) around the home on trays and window ledges.The pretty candles can be placed individually or grouped for a dazzling display. The tradition stems from the concept of family and friends travelling afar during the year and returning home for Christmas. The candle lights the way to ensure their safe return.

Today’s candle projects are made with vellum cardstock {106584} that is sturdy enough to hold its shape and translucent enough to allow light to shine through. I love the featured project with the images of Lovely as a Tree {127793} stamped in Archival Stampin’ Ink {140931} . Sparkle on the trees was added with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter {133751} and a strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper {135315} circling the base.

The next candle was stamped using the Ready for Christmas stamp set {144823}. This may be may favourite stamp set this season. There are 20 images in the set to create a beautiful home scene around this excited little dog. There is even a matching set of Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies {144679}.

The third candle was created using silhouette images from two stamp sets. Merry Patterns (hostess set) and Christmas Lampost Thinlits Dies {144675}, which by the by happen to be discounted until the 2nd January, or while stocks last. See the current End of Year Sales Event to secure yours before they run out! The coordinating stamp set Brightly Lit Christmas {144807} is also retiring at the end of this month.

Leaning on a lamppost . . . add seasonal signs, bows, a Christmas wreath and presents, and create a serene seasonal scene. Each of these products and projects would make fabulous Christmas gifts.

When you shop online with me through the month of December, be sure to use the hostess code KSETZ73H at the check out to receive a thank you gift from me.
