Candles and cards.

Yes, it's that time of the year when everything is to do with Christmas !!

Not to be left behind, here are a couple of Christmas cards and candles that I have made.
 This Christmas tree consists of bows. I arranged the bows so they give the impression of a tree. I then used a fine marker in green to draw the shape of the tree and added some green gems and the wording "Merry Christmas"
 This card was created using a stamp that I got free in a magazine. I used embossing powders in gold and black and then cut out the bauble using spellbinders dies. I stuck them on one side of the card. I added some strips of glitter in gold to highlight the edges and added the wording on the other side.
 I have been experimenting with candles. I printed off this photo of Rolo, my border terrier dog just onto plain copier paper. I then lay over the candle. Using a heat gun I slowly melted the wax off the candle so that the image is stuck onto the candle . I think it looks great. An ideal Christmas present.
This candle uses the same technique as above, but this time I stamped the image onto tissue paper and then used the heat gun. I added the ribbon at the top using red tape to stick.


  1. Wonderful projects - I am especially loving the Rolo is superb! I can see that I may need to steal this idea!! :) xx

  2. Hi Jacquie,
    Love your cards, very clever idea with the bows. Great candles too.
