I now have some Sprites, Mini me’s (24 different colors), Baby Girl and Just Us paper and the Romantica and Lucid collections are back in stock!! YAY! If you haven’t seen these sprites they are just TOO CUTE!!! They are the scaled down version of the Quick Picks and just so sweet! Here’s a pic of some of the new goods! :)

How to make:

 I thought I could run all the trees  the Xyron. Well obviously you can, but they didn’t stick well to the candle, so then I had to go back with tacky glue! lol! I just cut out a million trees and layered them all around the candle. The bear is stamped in Chocolate Chip and adhered with Dimensionals. I hand sewed the linen thread then tackey glued that. The tag is just tied on to the candle wick!
Supplies:

Stamps: Happy Camper and Karen Foster Snap Stamps

Cardstock: Vanilla

Ink: Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke

Accessories: Dimensionals, Linen Thread, Tag punch

ETA: Looks like I spelled “your” wrong…thanks for pointing that out to me gal’s! Oopse! :)

    I love this candle! I like your technique so much more than stamping on tissue paper and then melting it onto the candle. I’m sure your father will love it.
