Today’s project will be brought to you in two parts. The project is a stamped candle. Well, you don’t actually stamp on the candle itself – that would be difficult to do. The trick is to stamp on tissue paper that you then arrange and adhere to your candle to get the layout you want. Part 1 below shows you what you should expect your project to look like after you have stamped and trimmed down your pieces and adhered them to your candle (I used snail adhesive on mine, just be careful not to tear the tissue paper when applying).
Tomorrow I will show you in Part 2 what the finished project will look like after the images are infused into the candle with heat and wax paper. Stay tuned!
Did you notice that I used the Painted Harvest stamp set (a set that has been used to make beautiful sunflowers) to make a wreath? I used the stamp that appears in the lower left corner of the product picture. In the areas where it stamped too lightly, I used a Blender Pen with my ink pad to fill it in a little bit. Thanks to my fellow demonstrators who posted other projects with this brilliant idea, sorry I cannot recall your names to give you credit.
Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in today’s project, all of which can be quickly added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:
If you have any questions regarding this technique, do not hesitate to contact me. I would be happen to demonstrate this for you at your home or mine!
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper (even tissue paper)! Until next time, stamp on my friends.
