Best of Flowers Candle

Best Of Flowers 002 Main

Stampin’ Up!’s 25th Anniversary exclusive stamp set Best Of Flowers can be used in many versatile ways – don’t just think in 2D for cards!  I wanted a little pop for these cute flowers on this stamp which is quite smaller than it’s original.  But the change is worth it – at least for my cute little votive candles!

Creative Tips:

  • Normally I would stamp with the ink pads, but since this stamp is so detailed, I used Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo and Garden Green. 
  • I took my time to color in my stamp and then huffed it – remoistened the ink with the warmth of my breath by huffing of my stamp.
  • I stamped several images on white tissue paper, and then cut around the whole image leaving a little space for my glue.
  • I glued each image directly to my candle using the two way glue stick.   I had to trim a few flowers off since they were taller than my candle.

  • I wrapped the candle tightly with wax paper, leaving an excess amount for me to hold on to.
  • I used my Heat Tool to carefully melt the wax from the candle through the tissue paper and wax paper.  I then quickly roll it onto a hard surface covered with grid paper so not to get any wax on the surface.  This rolls the candle flat again. 
  • Once my image is translucent and I can’t see any of the white tissue paper, I knew it was done.  TIP – don’t over do it as your candle will be bumpy then.  It goes quick.
  • Be patient, pull your wax paper off slowly…let me say that again – Slowly!  Check it and spot melt any other sections with new wax paper. 
  • I get my wax paper at the $1 store – that way I’m not skimpy with it!

The end result is a fun personable candle that dresses up any occasion!  Have fun using this versatile stamp set for so much more than just cards!
