ESAD Blog Hop

Welcome to ESAD's blog hop. The theme of this hop is Stampin' Up's new Holiday catalogue. Click here to have a look at it and if you're in Australia & would like a copy please let me know & I will pop one in the post for you. 

There are 32 fantastic artists participating, show casing some amazing projects. So grab yourself a cuppa & maybe a snack, sit back and enjoy.

I am having so much fun at the moment with stamping on candles and it really isn't as difficult as it appears.

I've used the new Painted Harvest stamp set to make this candle & a matching 3x3 note card.

To make this you will need:
Painted Harvest stamp set
Heat tool
Inks I used were: Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake.
Some white tissue paper
Waxed paper - which is difficult to find in Australia - Woolworths home brand grease proof paper works well.

Stamping onto the tissue paper, first stamp the larger flower with Sweet Sugarplum ink. Re ink & turn the stamp & stamp again.

Make a mask with a post it note and stamp the leaves around the edge in Pear Pizzazz ink. Remove mask and stamp the detailed flower image in Rich Razzleberry and the centre with Sahara Sand ink.

Now cut the image out - not fussy cutting, just close to the edge of the image. Lay the image onto the candle and lay a piece of grease proof paper over the top of it with the shiny side down and pull tight behind the image

Start heating with your heat tool, keep it moving all over the image, not staying in one spot as the candle will melt. You will see the image start to "go". When you can see the whole image has turned - like embossing powder does, it's done. Gently remove the grease proof paper and set candle down to cool.

While the candle is cooling, stamp the greeting onto tissue paper and trim close to the edge. It is best to wait till the candle has cooled right down, before doing the second image in the same way as the first. Whilst waiting for the candle to cool down I also  made a little 3x3 matching card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you enjoyed my project and will give it a go. Please leave a comment so I know you have been. Have a great day.
