Some More Candles

After posting a pic of my first candle on Facebook I had so many lovely comments including one from my lovely cousin, Marlene, who sells "Real Safe Candles" and asked me if I would have a go at stamping on her candles.

Now these candles are flameless and are still made with wax but the beauty of these candles is that they don't melt!! My cousin has her own Beauty Salon and she also sells her candles through this outlet. The link to Marlene's site is here and you can read all about the candles.

They come packaged in a set of three varying sizes so yesterday we had a go at stamping on them and here are the results:-
This one is stamped with the gorgeous swirl from Baroque Motifs using Concord Crush and the flowers are stamped with Kiwi Kiss with a small gold brad inserted in the middle.

This next one is the smallest size and we went with an image from A Little Bit of Happiness stamp set. The colours were Tempting Turquoise and Not Quite Navy.

For the third candle which is the medium size we chose the Embrace Life set and stamped the main flower in Pumpkin Pie and the leaves in Old Olive. The "embrace life" is stamped in Chocolate Chip.

Now here is a pic of the set of three and I can say that Marlene was very happy with the results.

Tomorrow we will be doing another set so stay tuned and I will have some more to show you. I have been having so much fun stamping on candles and even making easter baskets that I have forgotten how to make a card!!! I will have to take a look at some challenge sites and hopefully might have a card to share.

Happy stamping,
