Christmas Candle

Hello Friends

I am getting into the Christmas mood and have been making some presents this week. This is one of them! How cute is this?? I have wanted to try  stamping on to candles for a while.  I thought this wee girl stamp would be perfect for my candle. This stamp is called No Greater Gift  from Unity she is so cute.

It is pretty easy all you need is a candle, some tissue paper and wax paper. All you need to do is stamp and colour your image on to the tissue paper. Then cut around it. Place the image on to your candle and get some wax paper and put it over the top of the image.Then very gently heat the wax paper with your heat tool you will see it melt the tissue paper into the wax. I absolutely love the way it turned out. I think it will make a really nice Christmas gift :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by

Love You - Hot Pink

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  Have a great weekend :)

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t
