KARENS FRAMES - PART 2

Helloooo everyone!!!  What a relief it is to be back online...though it was only missing for a day hahahahaha!!!  Its surprising how much we miss it though isn't it?  Internet Explorer decided to have a brainfart on my pc and the laptop was just behaving like a loony.  But I am lucky that thats the sort of problem that gets hubby all excited...not me sadly eh hahahahaha!!!!!  He is a gem and fixed them both for me...ahhh bless his little black socks!!!

Anyways...enough waffling along...down to business (?).  Here are the rest of my frames that I designed for Di at Tando Creative.  Again these are tiddly with the square ones having 1" apertures.  Just love those tiddly hearts that come out too!!!  I found an empty little choccy box that I had saved and decorated the top with one.  The box is only about 4inches long and was already covered.  I stuck the hearts on wires but they do look like antennae hahahahahahaha...


I bought this blank tealight holder from Craft Barn (they have an amazing range of blanks...go see!).  I painted it blue and then stamped & embossed on the top.  I stamped & white embossed the Taj Mahal 4 times to stick on the sides.  On 2 sides I cut the image down & added the gold embossed frame with a dancer inside.  The stamps are from a set by Lost Coast Designs.  I added some of those new Prima stud jewels for a more opulent look. Now why can you never find a tealight when you need one???



My last frame went on a card...you still there??? haha!!! The cream card was coloured with Distress Ink (as was the frame & hearts) and overlaid with some scrunched up paper I had coloured with glimmer mists.  The stamp is by Sir Tim, I love this stamp!...


Thank you so much if you have got to here , lots of HUGS for everyone XXXXX

WOW Karen my lovely!! I love the Taj Mahal stamp (and have always loved the Taj Mahal). It stands out so well on the darker backdrop, really lovely. The gold embossing on top of the candle light blends well with the gold frame down the side. Brilliant. XX

What super projects Karen. The tea light holder with the Taj Mahal has to be my favourite though. The white embossing stands out so well.

Fabulously inventive use of those frames. I love the white embossed blue box best, can't you cut a normal candle very very short - no wait that would probably burn the house down!
