Stamping on candles

I had tried this technique before without much success, but then Juliana, a fellow PhillyInker, showed us how to do it at a recent shoebox swap. So attempted it again! Thanks Juliana!
I used Stampin Up's new set "I {heart} Hearts" from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I knew I was going to like this set as soon as I saw it! I stamped the hearts in various shades of Stampin Up's red and pink Classic Inks onto white tissue paper. Then I used my new Stampin Up embossing gun to adhere them to the candle.
This may very well be my new favorite technique!

Bugs and Kisses

I was playing round making cards when I came up with the prototype for this one. And I apologize for the bad picture. The sun was down when I took this, and I can't seem to get good pictures without it. So for now, this will have to do!
Anyway, I made this card with the Bugs and Kisses stamp set by Stampin' Up. I used the wide oval, large oval, scalloped oval, and the 1 1'4" square punch. The colors of cardstock (although hard to tell) are Gable Green, Lovely Lilac and Whisper White. And I stamped the images of the bugs in Gable Green. The sentiment is stamped in StazOn and I used dimensionals to give it some height.

I added the prototype to my regular blog since not everyone visits both blogs! :)
