Here is a close up of the words "Blah Blah Blah!" her friend loves to talk and so this saying fit her perfectly!

The 15 Days of Christmas - Blog Hop

On the Fifth day of Christmas my sweetheart gave to me
"5 decorative Candles"
These candles are so much fun to make!! All you need is:
- Tissue paper
- White candles
- Your favorite Stamp
- Wax paper
- Any ink (NOT water based) I use Momento
- Heat embossing tool
-Anything you want to embellish with
What you want to do is stamp your image on the shiny side of the tissue paper. Cut your image out as close to your image as possible. Then you will place it on your candle shiny side out. You can put a few dabs of glue on your image to make sure it doesn't move. Then wrap your candle in wax paper holding the back securely then you take your heat embossing tool and heat your image. Don't heat it too long as it will bubble and wreck the candle just long enough for the image to stick. Remove your wax paper and there you are! A beautiful candle!! Embellish!! I embellished with stickles and some bling.
Below is a closer look at the candles and what stamps I used.
This candle I used a whippersnapper stamp.
This is a Close to My Heart Stamp Set
My favorite stamped with a Penny Black Stamp
This is an inkadinkadoo Stamp set (Also a fav of mine)
Thanks for hopping along with our 15 days of Christmas!! I hope that you enjoyed my creations!
I have decided to give away a candle of your choice! Just leave a comment below with what candle you like the most and why! If you want to follow my blog that would be great but not a requirement for the blog candy! I just love Friends!
Thank you to KinderStampO for putting on the blog hop.

Birthday Card & Journal

Here I made a simple card so I could use one of my homemade flowers! It turned out pretty nice if you ask me! I also distressed the tag on it with my Broken China Tim Holtz ink!
This is a journal that I altered! It was for a birthday present for my daughters friend. I used my Close to My Heart Stamp set and random stamped the paper, added some ribbons and flowers and done!
I love this stamp set because one of the stamps says "Be yourself everyone else is taken" I think that is so true!

Some more Homemade Flowers!

OMG we had so much fun making these. My daughter and I cut out a bunch of different flowers using my silhouette and got set up at the coffee table!! We used normal white card stock, Tim Holtz Distress ink, glass pearls, water, hot glue tool, heat (embossing) tool and some diamond dust for on top. The vibrant blue is glimmer mist I only have one of those but will be getting more! :)
I have the perfect pictures that these flowers are going to go with!!! Can't wait to show you ladies!!

Making Your Own Flowers

Ok so this has got to be one of the coolest things I have ever made!! They look store bought!! OMG!! they are so much fun to make and only takes about 5 mins!! I got the idea from
I used my silhouette to cut out the flowers 5 flowers in total. 2 big, 2 med and 1 small. Then with my Tim Holtz craft mat I sprayed the flowers with glimmer mist then crinkled them all up into a ball. After I cleaned my mat I un crinkled them and then dried them with my heat tool. Then you start with the small one glue your pearl in the center, then glue your 2 big ones, then your 2 med ones. Then glue them all together! Christina recomends using a hot glue gun. I couldn't find mine so I used zip dry! Use liquid diamond to add dots on to your flower and you can either dust with diamond dust (found at Michaels) or leave it alone!
The Dark Blue is the glimmer mist one and the light blue is Tim Holtz distress ink Broken China. For a video Tutorial go to Creations with Christina

Birthday Candle

These are one of my most favorite things to make!! I love these thing just about as much as I love glitter!! :) So my daughter's friend is turning 11. Watch out teenage years are coming!! and my daughter wanted me to make her friend a candle! I took two pictures of this candle so you can see the whole image!
I used my mo manning stamp and my close to my heart stamps for the sayings.
I stamped on tissue paper, then wrapped the candle in wax paper and melted the image on. Decorated with a few brads.
