Mini Candle Cake & Card

I found some little battery operated candles in our cheap store last year and used them to make a lantern with the gorgeous Asian Artistry stamp set (don't think I blogged it - it was one of those creations that was so fraught with frustration that even though the end result was gorgeous I didn't want to see it again for a while!) But I digress, mini candle cakes are SO cute and calorie free. I did this one using up some retired DSP scraps for a birthday, but you could easily make them for any occasion (This DSP was from Washington Apple, but you could easily substitute it for the So Saffron page in the Subtles DSP Patterns Pack).

Too cute isn't it! The sentiment was stamped and cut out with the modern label punch, before I fish tail cut the ends of it. I also made a matching card with the same papers using the new Build  A Cupcake punch.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Create A Cupcake
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue (marker), Wild Wasabi (marker).
Card stock: So Saffron, Riding Hood Red, Washington Apple DSP (retired), Whisper White, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Two Step Bird Punch, Build A Cupcake Punch, 2 3/8" scallop circle punch, White gel pen, Dimensionals, Modern Label Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes flower punch, SNAIL, Basic Pearls, 1 3/4" scallop circle punch, paper snips.
