I seriously LOVE Halloween and everything about it! The decorations, the costumes, the candy, the mystery, and intrigue. There is just something so alluring about dressing up for a night and pretending to be something else. One can be anything from super cute to super scary. It has turned into more of a month-long celebration instead of the one night that I remember of my youth.
Halloween Candle Votives
To start this project I heated up my Minc machine and ran a sandwich of “iCraft Decofoil Transfer Sheets Silver” and “iCraft Decofoil Toner sheets” through on setting level 4.
Next using the “Newton’s Nook Cameo Frame Die” and “iCraft Purple tape” to hold it in place I cut out a bunch of frames. I did add some double-sided tape to the die so I just had to move my top plate around instead of having to reposition with every cut.
Then I embossed with “Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink” and “Brutus Monroe Embossing Powder -Raven”. I made sure to use the “Brutus Monroe Magic Powder Bag” so it came out clean. Vellum was the perfect paper choice so that when this was placed on my candle holder the light would show through. “Newton’s Nook Creepy Cameos” stamped perfectly using this method.
I took the vellum pieces and die cut them out again using the “Newton’s Nook Cameo Frame Die” so that I would get a perfect oval to fit inside of the silver frames. To add a little something extra I colored some of the background vellum with some “Brutus Monroe Metallic Aqua Pigments- Cactus and Iris”. Everything was attached to some mini led candle holders that I had gotten at a big box store.
This project was pretty simple and went together in no time. The best part was photographing it since I had to pick my daughter up from a Halloween themed roller skating night, I borrowed one of the actors for a picture or two. Happy Halloween!!!
