More Candle Stamping

This is the other candle project that Denise and I completed yesterday. This one has a more everyday feel to it and could be displayed all year long. I think this one also turned out beautifully and I love the colors on this one.
This is the side view of the same candle. Isn't that image from "Just Believe" so pretty? I just love it!
Here are the step by step directions for stamping on candles. It is actually fairly easy once you get the hang of it.
1. Stamp your image onto white tissue paper. Color in the image with markers (if it is a line art image.)
2. Cut out the image leaving a small border.
3. Place the cut out image where you would like it to be on the candle.
4. Wrap a piece of wax paper tightly around the entire candle with the tissue paper piece in place.
5. Use the heat tool to melt the stamped image into the surface of the candle.
6. Remove the wax paper.
7. Add more stamped images, if desired.
8. Decorate your candle with ribbon or other embellishments, if desired.
Enjoy! Have a great day!

Stamping on Candles

Hello to anyone out there who still checks my very neglected blog! I held my first Christmas card buffet on Saturday and it was so much fun and a great success! I had six wonderful ladies here and they made a total of 160 cards! I'm already looking forward to the next one on November 19th! While this event was a blast, it took A LOT of preparation, which is why my poor blog has been so neglected lately. I finally got a chance to stamp for fun today with my friend Denise. We are planning to make some handmade gifts for Christmas this year and we decided to try our hand at stamping on candles. We were really pleased with the results. There is a great tutorial on splitcoaststampers in the resource section if you would like to try this for yourself.

Everyone have a GREAT day and I will try to post A LOT more often in the coming days and weeks!
