Stamping again

I've spent a lot of time these last few days over at Splitcoast Stampers - there are so many fantastic tutorials to follow and the gallery is just stuffed full of fantastic work.

I followed this tutorial to learn how to transfer a stamped image onto a candle. It was so easy and I was pretty happy with the way they turned out.

This was my first attempt using stamps from Stampin' Up!'s Heartfelt Thanks set.

And then one using a Sugar Nellie stamp - I can't wait until my Sugar Nellie bunny stamps arrive in a couple of weeks. I think they would make a lovely new baby gift if stamped on to a candle.

A simple card and again I used my new Heartfelt Thanks set. I randomly stamped one of the images using white ink on black cardstock to make the background image.

And for this one I painted Twinkling H2Os directly onto the base stamp then stamped the second stamp (as shown in the card above) on top of the first image. I was pretty pleased with the way my first attempt at Two Step Stamping turned out.
