This project was made with two of Cindy's stamps (Fancy Accents and Winter Wishes) and several other products that Cindy carries in her store....Martha Stewart Pine Needle Border Punch, Nestabilities Fancy Tag, Circle, and Scalloped Circle, and Copic markers. It would make a great stocking stuffer or gift for school personnel.

Here are some projects I made using the newest stamps from Cindy at StampingScrapping.com! I love how versatile these stamps are and that they coordinate with my Nestabilities so perfectly!
After much consideration, we have decided who the new design team members will be based on their projects submitted. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO TRIED OUT ALL THE ENTRIES are GREAT! At first it was going to be one spot but things change so as life hands us lemons so we make lemonade with Kevins back injury we decided to take on the Magnolia stamp line. We have decided to bring on 5 NEW Design Team Members 1 to Stamping Scrapping and 4 amazing Copic Marker talented ladies who love Magnolia stamps. Congrats to Kathy Robitaille for the design team spot on StampingScrapping. Magnolias spots went to Stephanie Hester, Viviane Casale, Anary Baumgarth & Cindy Close. Expect to be inspired! Thanks again to everyone who tried out!

I created these adorable House Mouse Christmas candles as my Design Team project.
I have seen this done a few different times on the internet and finally decided that I needed to give it a try. It's actually a very simple procedure. To get started, you will need a few basic supplies, plain white tissue paper, a white candle, ink, markers, a stamp, wax paper, and a heat
gun. The first step is to stamp your image on the tissue paper. If you look carefully you will see there is a shiny and a flat side to the tissue paper. Stamp and color on the shiny side. I stamped my image in memento and colored it in with copics. The tissue paper is thin, so I suggest putting a sheet of white paper underneath the tissue paper to protect whatever surface you are coloring on. After you are finished coloring your image, you need to cut it out (carefully the tissue paper is really thin) leaving as little tissue paper around the image as possible. Then get your candle and put a small strip of double stick tape on the candle where you want your image to be. Stick the image on and wrap wax paper all the way around the candle leaving extra in the back to hold on to. Then you get your heat gun and move it around melting the image into the candle. You will see the image get a little shiny the tissue paper "disappearing". Be careful not to overheat and start melting the candle. I haven't tried this yet on colored candles to see how it works, but I
think I will soon since it was so easy. I got my candles at the dollar store. My daughter loved this idea and she wanted to make one herself. She colored the little guy on the right with the all red hat. When doing this project with kids, I wouldn't let them hold the candle while it's getting heated. It can get pretty hot especially on the small candles since there really isn't enough room to get your hand out of the way. So, there you go some adorable House Mouse Christmas candles. You can purchase these and other great House Mouse images from Cindy at stampingscrapping.com or stampscrapsave.com
