Arrow SEP07VSNJ -- SAT 3PM -- Gettin' Gifty -- Chat Thread

Gettin' Gifty
Autumn Fairy Hostess: Karen (kthaman)
Keyword: SEP07VSNJ
Time: 3:00 PM EST, Sat

Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge procrastinator! I never think about gifts until the day before, and then it is impossible (for me) to do anything really spectacular. So this year I am going to try to get done early! One gift I've always wanted to try was stamping on candles. So get out your supplies and let's get some gifts made early this year!

SCS has a great tutorial by Jenni Mouer (aka Jenmouer).

You don't need to use wax paper, but I found it controlled the drips...if you opt not to use the wax paper, add a bit of glue stick to the tissue paper (just in a couple spots - don't tear it by trying to get the whole thing covered)...and be careful when you heat it!

My sample is attached and uploaded. And yes, these things really are simple and totally doable in 45 min!!

View Submissions Here

Please make sure you upload your image to the Anything But a Card -> Stamping on Candles gallery! Thank You!

Uploading Instructions:
*You have 45 minutes to complete this challenge
*Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. If you are using additional keywords, you must separate them with a comma. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
*It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

This is a terrific challenge but I'm going to wait til it cools down a bit here. I can't even think about the heat gun right now. The temperature feels like it rose. Maybe I'm running up and down the stairs too much. My stamping area is in the basement and the computer is a desktop in the office. Maybe I need a laptop just for my stamping endeavors??????Someone email me DH! LOL

This was so fun! I'm glad I gave it a try - though I did use a small $1 candle from Michaels in case I screwed it up!

I made mine, used the heat embosser, pulled the tissue paper and wax paper off, but no image on the candle. What'd I do wrong???

I haven't done this in sooooo long. It was wonderful to try this again, and though pretty simple, I like how it came out. Hope my mom likes it -- I made it for her since she loves birds. TFL! -- Dee

oh darn!

I love making these and was so excited, but after 39 minutes of looking for tissue paper I'm out of luck!! Maybe later after I go to the store, I'm sure I can throw something together in the 6 minutes I have left. Time out!!

This was a great challenge. Since I've never done this before, I made it simple, but will try a more challenging one in the future. Still don't know how to add a link, but all things come with time....

Hmmmm...I am stumped...what kind of marker can I use? I don't have a clue what an aquapainter even is! I have sharpies, crayola, and some SU markers. Will any of those work, or do I need to just choose a solid stamp?

I had to post two pictures so you could see the front and the back.
