Well firstly let me say Happy New Year to all my blog readers and a big thank you for following my blog over the last year and I hope you will continue to follow my blog over this year as well.
Here are some samples using the Sweet Summer set from Sale-a-Bration.
Firstly I have decorated a candle.
This is done by firstly taking some tissue paper and stamping your design on it and then I coloured it in with my Stampin' Write markers. Cut down your design as close as you can. Now most of the tutorials for this are American and they ask for waxed paper, but here in good old UK we can safely use greaseproof paper. So take a piece of greaseproof paper big enough to wrap around the candle and grip hold of. Next take your heat gun and gently heat your candle, the bonus with greaseproof is that you can see through it and can see when the tissue paper has melted into the candle. Do this until all of your design has melted into the candle and voila there you have a fabulous gift.
My next offering is a gift box and notelets.
On both these and the candle I have used the In Colours. The cards are Very Vanilla base with Poppy Parade mat. The flowers have been stamped with Pear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade. To colour them in I have used my blender pen and drawn colour from the edges. These are 3"x3" notelets. I have made a small gift box to put them in and wrapped a piece of the stitched-poly ribbon in Poppy Parade.
Well I hope you like and until next time
