Fancy Favour tea light holders

How pretty is this Luminere with the Flocked Cocoa Specialty DSP , I made a matching Tag with the ornament I punched out of the box & decorated the tealight with DSP & the left over top strip from the Fancy Favour cut (had to use that up, LOL). The Reindeer is from Winter Post & he's white Embossed onto Vellum CS, the ribbon is red satin.
Below are a few different takes made at my Christmas Class

Welcome Christmas

 I wasn't going to get anymore Christmas sets but when I saw the gorgeous Cocoa Specialty DSP  was available & FREE Ribbon, (I chose Missletoe Ribbon Originals -(a roll of Old Olive Taffeta & a roll of White stitched) I couldn't resist & Welcome Christmas was on my wishlist a few times!
Isn't the wreath special, it's Ribbon Weaving & if you haven't tried it you must, it's easy, here is a link to a video tutorial.
Another technique I'm loving is swiping White Craft ink over embossed CS, here it makes Petals A Plenty look pink on the Rich Razzleberry CS & on this card it actually looks like fabric.
Colours I've used here are Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry & Very Vanilla.
For the next card I used Cocoa Specialty DSP & colours that match -every sheet is gorgeous, especially the couple that are flocked -Will have a play with those soon.

This card was inspired by the sample in the catalogue. I Ribbon Weaved Rich Razzleberry 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, stamped tone on tone with Old Olive & with the label I outlined it to look like an extra mount with Rich Razzleberry Marker before cutting it out,  it's hard to see in the pic but it worked quite well, giving extra colour & dimension without having to cut it out twice.
