Day 3 of S&S 31 days of Halloween

Welcome to day 3! Happy Sunday!

Today I decided to do something other than a card, I have been working on a bunch of decorations that I can’t wait to show…but I do still have to send out my Halloween cards so there will be plenty of them too….but with all these decoration ideas I’m getting from this hop…how can you not!?!?

So I made a few candles…I have been wanting to try out this technique ever since I got my heat gun… I got these candles and some tissue paper stamped my CTMH stamp on with black stayzon ink and then heated it…so cool I want to make a bunch more and maybe give them away or something!

don’t forget to stop by the S&S forum and check that place out…we all have so much fun and we are getting allot of new members so you won’t be new alone =) That’s all I have for today so have fun horrifyingly hopping along, or sinisteringly lurking, and I’ll see ya when I see ya…

here is a little more details on how I did this...really its so simple don't over think it...

  1. stamp you image on white tissue paper (used for gift bags)
  2. cut out your image as close as you can get
  3. position image over candle
  4. heat image onto candle...just wave the heat gun back and forth until the image melts into the candle.

and thats all there is too it...I hope this helps
