SHOPPING OUR STASH #254 - The 4 Elements

Hello crafty peeps and welcome! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we want to see what you create using one (or more) of the 4 elements: Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water! Here is my card, using the fire element:

 and here is the inside:

I can't take credit for this idea. It was the brainchild of my hubby! LOL! I just took it and ran with it! I used a star stencil and pressed a VersaMark pad directly to it, sprinkled silver embossing powder then heat set it. It came out really messy, but I kinda liked it so I used it. The sentiment is computer generated. On the inside, I stamped the bottom row of candles. I didn't get full coverage on one of them so I tried to stamp over it, but I didn't line the image up perfectly and it gave a blurry image. DOH!!! So what I did was stamp over a few other candles, to achieve the blurry effect, like I totally meant to do that! I outlined all the flames with a yellow Spectrum Noir marker. 

Now it's your turn to create something using one (or more) of the 4 elements! We look forward to seeing your creation in the Shopping Our Stash gallery. While there, please check out what my teammies made for your viewing pleasure and leave them some bloggy love! Speaking of teammies, we have four new members joining our design team starting in June!

Oh, I love it! The little space scene on the front is super adorable, and all the candles on the inside is a total fun surprise. Kuddos to your hubby on that great idea, and kuddos to you on the brilliant way to fix your stamping "mistake". I totally love the bit of grunge the double stamping adds!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
