"Stamped Candle For Class"


I ended up finding the candles at the Dollar Tree but they weren't the ones I was looking for. I didn't want the pillar ones, I wanted the ones with a flat top cause I wanted to wrap them with ribbon. Oh well, they still worked. Remember paint prints? I like to use this set for the candles. I think that is pretty much all I use that set for anymore. My class went great. They all had fun. We kinda ran out of time and went over a half hour. But everyone got all the cards done so that was good. The card with all the word window punches tripped a lot of people up so next time I will either leave the off the "extras" or have them punched already for them. It is still a learning process for me as far as timing goes. Yesterday I bought a cuttlebug so now I don't have to use my sizzix anymore. Be prepared to see a lot of cards with the embossing folders again. I can't wait to play with it. I also got a new embossing folder and I can't wait to use it. Here are the directions for the stamped candles.
Stamps: Paint Prints
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Summer Sun
Accessories: Candle, Tissue Paper, Wax Paper, Heat Gun

I love making candles... and I was so upset when this set didn't make it into the catalog... it was one of my favorites! Another thing you can do to add dimension & a little somethin'-somethin' is to stamp an image onto vellum and attach it to the candle using pins... did that make sense? If not, let me know, I'll email you a picture.
