For her birthday card I was inspired by a fellow Pinkie Vicky Hayes aka Crafting Clare and a card she made. Click here to see her original. For my card I used the Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set again.
I followed the same colour scheme for the cards and candle as I did for the birthday card and gift packaging, which is primarily Bermuda Bay with a touch of Coastal Cabana and a hint of Soft Sky.
I used a technique on these two cards that I learned at a Stampin' Up! event in Telford in May. Another Pinkie, Lynne Fahey, got up on stage and demonstrated the technique of using the acrylic stampin blocks to make backgrounds by inking them up with ink pads, markers and reinkers. For the following cards I used the Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Soft Sky ink pads.
The Pinkies are a very talented bunch and if you are interested in joining our team, then please don't hesitate to call me for more information.
I have developed my own technique for the candles, which is very simple, although I'm sure there are lots of people who do the same. After stamping on tissue paper and cutting it out, I wrap the image around the candle under a layer of greaseproof/baking paper. I then heat it with a heat gun until I see the wax melting and the image starting to get wet. I then smooth over the baking paper with a cloth (so I don't burn my fingers) to gently push the tissue paper further into the candle. Rotate and repeat until you've completed the entire image.
I have used the following Stampin' Up! products
Stamp sets: Blooming with Kindness, Best of Flowers, Inks: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Soft Sky, Card Stock: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay.
