Scrap-Mart Blog Hop - 2010 Christmas Candle

Photobucket


Welcome to the First Annual Scrap-Mart.com Blog Hop! If you are just joining in please go to the Scrap-Mart blog to start from the beginning. There are 31 blogs participating in the hop and you will find some great prizes along the way. You must comment on THAT blog post to be eligible to win that prize. There are also some Grand Prizes posted on the Scrap-Mart blog. You must comment on EVERY blog throughout the hop to be eligible for the Grand Prizes. Comments will remain open until midnight CST on Sunday, December 5th. Winners will be chosen at random for each individual prize and will be announced on the Scrap-Mart blog on Friday, December 10th. You may only win once. We'd like to thank our sponsors for generously donating all the prizes for this hop: Making Memories, Spellbinders, JustRite Stampers, Sizzix, Heartfelt Creations, Lifestyle Crafts, The Stamps of Life, Boss Kut, Unity Stamps, October Afternoon, Copic, Silhouette America.

I was very excited to be asked to join this blog hop.  I have purchased many items from Scrap-Mart - their prices are very reasonable and the delivery is super fast.  I decided to make my yearly Christmas candle as my project for this hop.  I followed the very easy instructions found here at Splitcoast.
**EDIT**  I have received lots of comments regarding how to stamp onto the candle.  The process is not done by stamping directly onto the candle.  The stamping is done onto tissue paper and then applied to the candle by using a heat gun.
My stamped image is from the "Vintage Christmas" set by JustRite Stampers using Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Lady Bug.  The date was made using the Curlz Numbers (JustRite).

To finish off my candle, I added lots and lots of lace on the top as well as the bottom of the candle. 

Below is the list of blog hoppers participating today.  Be sure to check each one out and leave a comment.  You never know which one just might have a "surprise".
