Decorated Candle ~ Stampin’ Up!

Oh! this was a day I promised myself during tax season ~ to simply play with some card and ribbon and have  a good ol’ footle. (an expression my dear Aunt used to do something without a particular purpose but simply to DO!)

During a visit to Lansing MI back in February I saw a fellow papercrafter had decorated a candle and I was so taken with it I wanted to have a go myself.

 

 

The candle measures 6″ high by 3″ across and  is one of those that have a waxy sort of feel and appearance but it has a little light inside which is perfect for decorating as it will not catch fire!

There was no pattern to follow ~ I just heaped pink and vanilla on it and scattered pearls in as many places that they would go.

Most of the work was done using the Big Shot and dies:

  • The lacy background is the So Detailed Thinlits Dies
  • The flowers and leaves are cut from the, soon to retire, Botanical Builders Framelit Dies
  • and the front panel using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

I enjoyed my footle immensely and now have a pretty home decor piece.  I hope you like today’s project – please let me know in a comment ~ by using that little link just under the title.
