HERE ARE THE THREE CARDS THAT I CREATED:

4.jpg

And the beautiful stamp set from Craftyscrappers that i have used to create these cards is called, ” Christmas Wishes

ST-FEST-33.jpg
The stamp set size that i have used is of 5x5inch size, which is the medium size, used in making A3 cards,envelopes and layouts.
This stamp set, has so many beautiful elements and really wonderfully matching sentiments to go along.
There are three different sized and variation poinsettia flowers which are just perfect for any Christmas theme project, and the beautiful holy leaves, one is the swirl holy leaves, great for creating Christmas wreaths and the small Holy leaf to embellish your projects and to make custom patterned backgrounds for your Christmas cards.
This stamp set also has a big sentiment, “Christmas” which is hand lettered along with coordinating sub sentiments that will create different sentiments as per choice.

 

Lets go through the making process of these three cards, one by one now…

Let me share now the procedure, how to make one easily…
but before that, let me share the products used.

tut2.jpg

 

 

 

Here’s the completed THEMED CANDLES:

 

f1.jpg

f2.jpg

f3.jpg

 

Possible image 1

 

step1

 

f4.jpg

Cut the tissue paper approximately to fit the size of the candle. The tissue should cover the candle only once and should not be overlapped at the ends. 

 

f5.jpg

 

step2

 

 Stamp all the images using the ink and the acrylic blocks randomly so as to cover the entire tissue. Make sure to leave little margins at the ends. This avoids crowing of images when the two end sides meet.  

 

f6.jpg
step3
 

 Cover the tissue completely with the images. Once all the images are stamped, separate the layers of tissue and use only the topmost ply of it. 

 

f7.jpg

 

step4

Next, we have to put the tissue on the candle and heat set it. 

 

f8.jpg

 

step5

 
 Heat the candle so that the tissue sticks to it from one side and then it becomes easier to pull the tissue around.
f9.jpg
 
Slowly and carefully heat set the tissue. You will observe that the candle starts melting and the tissue paper gets absorbed right into the candle, leaving only the design behind. This process requires a lot of care as you may burn yourself while holding the tissue in place. 
(I am so sorry… I could not click these in between pictures as I was completely engrossed in holding the tissue in place) 
Once the entire tissue vanishes set the candle aside for cooling down.
(Scrap out any additional drops of melted wax if any)
Possible image 1
Now you can decorate the candle using materials from your stash such as ribbons, flowers, beads, charms, twigs etc. This is how it looks. I have adhered a lace at the bottom of the candle. I did not decorate it much as then the images won’t be seen.
 
Check the video clip showing the finished candle here:

QUICK GUIDE: How to Gift wrap this candle:
I have taken few things from my stash such as Gelatin paper, satin ribbons, pearl string, flowers, twister strips and some tags.
C1.jpg
 
I wrapped the candle with the Gelatin and tied with the twister. Tied a satin at the neck and decorated with flowers, pearl string. Lastly, added the tag!
C2.jpg
C3.jpg
I made one more tiny candle using the Damask this! stamp set. 
ST-MIN-29_515x768-800x800.jpg
c4.jpg
 
 
Wasn’t that a great way of decorating your candles?
Some important tips:
  1. One can use coloured inks or can colour the images on the tissue before heat setting it.
  2. This technique can also be done using the stencils and distress inks on the tissue paper and heat setting it once dry.
  3. The important thing to remember is that the inks/colors should not be very wet as the tissue may tear.
