So enough hop talk. Here’s the card I made to share with you today.

Happy Hanukkah card by Teri

I used the new Kibitzing Icons dies with the new Kibitzing Two stamp set to stamp the menorah and the sentiment.

The background was created by brushing color with a couple Clean Color markers onto a stamping block, spritzing the color with water and rubbing the block onto watercolor paper.

To make the menorah stand out, I adhered it to the card with foam adhesive. I colored it in with a silver pencil and then used a Wink of Stella pen to add a little sparkle to it. It’s subtle, but I think it’s sure pretty.

OK, that’s what I have. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope to see you again soon.

  1. Gorgeous background. I forget about doing that technique and it turns out so fun and interesting. I like the use of the silver pencil – not so bright and shiny – looks great with your background. Love the flames. Looking forward to seeing more projects with this set and dies.

  2. I shared on Facebook about the new releases and Blog Hop🙂

  3. This background ROCKS Teri–those colors are awesome together. I really need to get my watercolor back on. I just lose patience waiting for it to dry!! LOL. So silly. Such a festive card🙂

  4. Thanks for telling us how you did the background! Doesn’t Wink of Stella add just the right amount of sparkle?! Great card design!

  5. Love the background. Good to see a menorah and adding the Wink of Stella was a great idea. Love the “jewel” accents for flames. Such a nice clean design. TFS

  6. Thanks for sharing your fantastic card. I love how you added rhinestone for the flames.
    Crafty hugs,
