SP and Co May Blog Hop- RELEASE DAY!

Today is the release day for the new May stamp set at SP and Company! I'm so glad you joined us for this multi-day hop. If you came here via Ivette, you're on the right track! Otherwise, you can go back to the SP and Co blog to start from the beginning.

If you missed days 1-3, make sure to go back and comment so you can be entered to win some great prizes!

Here's a peek at the new set, Round Sentiments:

I used these stamps to make a cute gift set and tag:
I stamped the heart all over some kraft cardstock in Versamark ink to make a patterned background for my tag. I used the same heart stamp to make a border to go around my gift box:

See those candles in there? They are stamped with the Round Sentiments too!

I used a technique that I think I read about in Paper Crafts magazine. I stamped onto a white napkin (the article said to use white tissue paper, which I had none of at the time!), cut around the sentiment, then placed it on the candle. I shot it with my heat gun which melted the candle a bit (and smelled amazing might I add (scented candles)), which formed a thin layer over my stamped napkin, sealing it in. Ya follow?
I got better at it with each one I did (the one in the foreground above was my first attempt, and the one below was my last)
Oh happy day indeed. :)

You're next stop is the lovely Kate.
Happy hopping!

  4. Wow...that's amazing! I never would have thought you could stamp on candles. Not sure if I'd try it. I think I would mess it up but you never know. TFS!
