Stampin' Candles

Good afternoon everyone,
Well this week has been sooo busy, I've been working on a commission for some wedding stationery - a huge table plan, favours for 100 people and 10 table centre-pieces; plus I've had classes this week, I've got a Stampin' Up! party tonight and I have a craft fair tomorrow.

All this of course has been teamed with the regular chores that need doing at home, plus job hunting, and attending some activities at my daughter's school (it was the school family picnic today) plus I made it to the gym this morning, too.

It's fair to say that I'm now pretty pooped!

One of the things I've been enjoying creating this week is decorated candles. All you need is tissue paper and a heat-gun - isn't the result magic?

This stamp is one that's about to retire (from the Stampin' Up! "You are Loved" set) available through me until the 1st July - I think it worked perfectly with the Real Red ink. A candle that you'd be proud to display in your home, I think.

You are Loved, Stampin' Up!

I've decorated a variety of candles ready for the craft fair tomorrow (wish me luck!). I shall post some more pictures of them up at a later date. 

You are Loved, Stampin' Up!

I'm collecting Lynne at 6.30am tomorrow morning - I'm looking forward to a lay-in on Sunday!

Please get in touch if you would like to know more about Stampin' Up! products or if you would like a catalogue or to place an order - I'd only be too glad to help. the_crafty_hippy@yahoo.co.uk

I'll be back after the fair with mine and Lynne's adventure!

  1. The candle is beautiful - just out of interest, what happens when the it burns down to the inky level? Or is it simply for looking pretty rather than burning?

  2. It burns down like a regular candle. The tissue paper has already melted into the wax. If you added embellishments like pearls and rhinestones then you'd want to be careful of course. I haven't burnt one myself but the lady that showed me how to make them explained all this :-)

  3. Although would you really want to burn it....?? I can never bring myself to burn the really pretty candles! ;-)
