Time for making Christmas presents

Yippy, I finally made a stamped candle!

For years I have seen this popular but stamped item but I have never tried. Well like everyone who has made them has said, "they are very easy!" Yes, this is my first candle-no draft versions in the trash. I reviewed Anne Gaal's photo tutorial and watched a U-tube video. Basically one stamps on tissue paper and colors as desired and may even emboss parts like I did with the snowflakes. Cut out the design lay it on the candle and wrap it with parchament paper. Heat with heat gun and magic it is complete. Oh, okay you can also embellish after finished too. Anne suggested inexpensive candles are best and that worked for me. Hope you too give one a try this season. If you have some time today both Anne at Gaal Creative and Tami over at the Fiskateer's blog are sponsonsoring challenges so you can enter a photo of your candle.

Happy Stamping!...Jan

  2. Hi, Jan! What a terrific candle! I love the pretty chickadee with the candy cane! And the snowflakes are awesome! Thank you so much for participating in my challenge! :-)

  3. Oh my gosh Jan, your candle is amazing!!I hadn't thought about colouring or embossing on the tissue paper, great idea!!

  4. Jan, I just loving everything you've been creating! The Tim Holtz inspired tags are awesome. I also like the card with the Eskimo on it. Keep up the beautiful work!
