Winter Wonderland - #27 Stamp a Candle or Decorate/Make a Candle Holder

You made some wonderful, inspiring projects for our Winter Wonderland theme last week. Yet again I thoroughly enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing what you had created without using obvious Christmas Stamps and Papers!

This week we would like you to either Stamp a Candle or Decorate or Make a Candle Holder. You can do both if you would like to! Or alternatively, if this project really isn't for you - why not make a Christmas card with a Candle on it :o)

We are absolutely thrilled to be able to announce that we have a new permanent DT member starting from this week. Please visit Avril's blog and say 'hello'.

Stamping a candle was a completely new technique for me this week. I'd never attempted it before ..... but I loved doing it. It is such an easy technique to get to grips with. I only bought one candle to 'try' it with and I am really pleased with the result. Ok ..... I stamped snowflakes on each side of the tree and unfortunately I didn't get them spaced right, but it looks fine anyway :o) Hopefully next time I can get the spacing right!






All products listed are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated.

Candle ............ From Tesco - 99p
Ink ............... Night of Navy
Stamp Set ......... Snow Swirled (USA/Canada only)

I've always been a bit scared of this technique but I love your results so maybe I'll give it a try after all. Wish we had that stamp set over here, that's a gorgeous tree.
