DIY How to Stamp on Candles to Create Coordinating Projects Thoughtful Blooms

I reorganize my stamp room occasionally and last week, I came across a stamped candle I created for a Techniques Class a few years ago.  I was inspired by the images used on it to create the candle and card for today's video.  I chose to use the Thoughtful Blooms Sale-a-bration stamp set which you can earn  FREE fwith a $50 order IN  MY STORE.   I taught Technique Classes for years and have compiled a mass of ideas, you can purchase my files HERE.
Tags bloom1Coming March 3rd, we will be adding five new products to the Sale-a-bration offering.  We will have three stamp sets, a package of gorgeous foil accent DSP and some really cool embossed vellum.

 

 

 


I chose three bright and fun spring colors for this project, Balmy Blue, Mint Macaron and Daffodil Delight.  Check out my video below to see how to stamp on candles.  VIDEO showing you how to stamp on candles on my blog www.barbstamps.com EARN this stamp set FREEMy inspiration piece was the candle on the left, it used a stamp set I received on an incentive trip to Hawaii many years ago and has long since retired.  However the Thoughtful Blooms set is the perfect substitute and you can get it FREE!!  I practiced on the smaller candle to see if I still remembered the technique and I did!! LOL
VIDEO showing you how to stamp on candles on my blog www.barbstamps.com EARN this stamp set FREEI created a coordinating card so I could use it as a gift.  I love how they turned out!
Earn this stamp set FREE www.shoppingwithbarb.c.omI stamped the foliage along the bottom and up the left side of the white card layer, added the two colors of flowers and a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  I added small rhinestone jewels to the centers of the yellow flowers.

VIDEO - Color Fusers February 2020 Blog Hop

CFcolors

Welcome to the Color Fusers February Blog Hop. This month we are using Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand and Early Espresso in our projects and I thought that the new Thoughtful Blooms and coordinating Small Blooms Punch would be perfect for these colors along with our Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes.  The stamp set and punch are both items you can choose FREE with your orders during Sale-a-bration.
I cut the note card in half and used the envelope inside the card.  Check out my video below. :-)
Thoughtful blooms blush note1I cut the note card in half and added the scalloped piece to the front of the card.  Added a few embellishments from the Follow Your Art Embellishment kit.
Thoughtful blooms blush note1Stamped the flowers in Blushing Bride ink on Blushing Bride cardstock and cropped the images with the Small Blooms Punch.
Thoughtful blooms blush note1I added the envelope and the back of the note card to the inside of my card.  You could add a gift card or some cash to the envelope.
