Festive Lantern

So far we are having beautiful weather here in Michigan,.
The leaves are for the most part off the trees
and it is hard to believe that Christmas will fast be approaching!
I am on a train bound for Chicago today to see the Macey's
Christmas tree and a bit of fun shopping
with a group of very 'rowdy' (lol) girls!!
I hope this 'old 'lady can keep up the pace with them!!

We had beautiful stamps released this month at 
Sparkle N Sprinkle and they are all about that
fast approaching Christmas!

The stamp I used for today is the new
I stamped the Poinsettia image with Versamark
then embossed with Irish Spring embossing powder.
I colored the image with Copics, added a bit of Brushable Glue,
sprinkled with Gypsy Red Velvet glitter, then fussy cut it out. 
Nuvo Crystal Drops Dandelion Yellow was applied to each flower center.

I also stamped the  lantern with Versamark
and used a very beautiful thick embossing powder called
I love how it gave the lantern a 'metallic' look.
The lantern candle was embossed with Red Apple embossing powder,
the flame colored with Copics,
then fussy cut out.

I used two embossing folders for the lantern to sit on
The first one is from Elizabeth Designs Spring Leaves
and the other one is Marianne Designs Anja (I think).

For under the Poinsettia spray,
I die cut leaves and greens using
Cheery Lynn Designs Build a Flower 2 and Wreath Strip.
applied Brushable Glue and Lady Luck Glittter

I hope you have enjoyed my post today 
and be sure and come back tomorrow
for another new Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp post!
