stamping on candles

The technique challenge at Stamp TV this week was to stamp candles!  This is a favorite of mine!...have no idea of how many candles I've stamped in the past!!!
Since I had everything pulled out...couldn't stamp just one!

Stamped candles are quick, easy and they make the best gifts year round!!!
I buy my candles from the $1 store...
Gina K at StampTV has the best video tutorial on how to do these....there are several methods, but she explains her method clearly as she is actually making her candle. It makes gorgeous candles!!

Stamps: GinaK's Holiday Cheer STV Kit, Winter Foliage and Autumn Beauty (by Theresa Momber)
Ink: Memento Black, Copics

I didnt emboss these (as Gina shows in her video)...I used Kleenex and colored very carefully so as not to tear the kleenex.

hope you get a chance to try it!
Have a blessed day,

PS  thank you for all the email asking for a tutorial on etching the glass plate....worked on it some today....very slow at taking pics as I go along :) and will post it hopefully by Thursday!

You have always had such a beautiful technique with candles...I still have my own you made years ago with the Silent Night stamp set. These are just gorgeous and need to try my own...just haven't gotten to it yet.

Hi Linda,
These are so good. I've tried this in the past and made a half decent job of it but nothing as good as this.
I am really tired today but I look forward to your tutorial. You are so talanted.

Beatiful! I've tried this and have trouble heating evenly. Will have to watch the tutorial for more hints.
