STAMPING ON CANDLES

This is my first attempt at this technique..I must say I just love it! I wanted to make some more 3-D items to show how versatile Stampin Up products are...not just for cards. I am also wanting to book some workshops for small gift giving ideas.

The first trio of candles I purchased, I used Early Expresso Ink and the flourish from the Friends 24-7 stamp set. I made a belly band around the bottom of the candle and used the Scalloped Border punch and Victorian Crocheted Trim. To finish off the candle I added a Vintage Brad.



After I had success with my first trio of candles...I went around my house and gathered all my candles and started stampin away. The candles below are a shorter pillar candle...so I only used the Flourish stamp and a Vintage Brad to embellish it. I used Black ink this time to match the candle holders.


Here is a close up.....


And another close up....



This last candle (which has seen better days)....I used the Simple Friendship Stamp set. I stamped my images in Cajun Craze and Old Olive. I just added some Old Olive Satin Ribbon to finish it off.

Supplies:

Stamps: SU Friends 24-7, Simple Friendship
Ink: Early Expresso, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Basic Black
Paper: Early Expresso, Tissue Paper
Accessories: Heat Gun, SU Scalloped Border Punch, SU Victorian Crocheted Trim, SU Vintage Brads, Pillar Candles, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Wax Paper
