More lovely trees

Stampin Up and Lovely as a Tree
Lovely As a Tree must be the most versatile stamp set we have from Christmas to Masculine to a background to stamping on a candle!

I'd just received my new ink colour Hunter Green so used that to stamp my lovely trees & I'm really happy how they turned out plus the gorgeous greeting from Seasonal Greetings - perfect & a bit of cellophane, ribbon & a wee tag to finish of the project.

Anne's asked for a link - just click on stamping on candles above - it's bolder & a different colour which means it's a hyperlink. Re what ink to use think anything goes, something that doesn't run on tissue paper, also can colour in outline stamps with markers etc. Only other hint is to cut away the excess tissue paper too. Have fun!

This is purely beautiful Karen! Stamping on candles is easy but so effective. I learnt this technique last Christmas and I still haven't burned the candles as they are too pretty. You've done a great job here.
I agree with you re Lovely as a Tree - it is a very well used stamp in my kit.

Karen these are lovely, what a great gift for someone. Please do you have a link to a tutorial for this? What ink do you use?

I'm thinking this would be a good idea!

OOPS just any ink that doesn't run on the tissue paper I've also used SU! Basic Black in the past & stamped an outline stamp & then coloured in with markers - think anything goes!
