Good day stampers! Well after months of preparation for my DD's wedding in August I am finally getting everything put to bed. The largest and most time consuming has been my candle project. I have stamped on tissue paper, colored the image and then embedded it into the candles and last night I put the finishing touches on two special candles and I am now officially finished.
Now usually I only show Stampin' Up! here on my website but since Carrie purchased these stamps before I joined I am going to make an exception (also want to show all my hard work lol). I have to say I have come to hate these stamps she purchased also. She paid a lot of money for each stamp but they don't work even half as well as Stampin' Up! rubber. The rubber is stiff and doesn't take the ink properly. For every four times I stamped the image I lost one or even two due to flaws in the image on tissue. Really frustrating! While the image is totally cute, the rubber is crap! (OOPS can I say that here?)
But it's worth every curse word and hair pulling moment. The finished product is lovely and I can't wait to see them on the tables. They will be placed in a cello bag and a ribbon tied around the top after we get to St. John's where the wedding will be held. This way the packaging will stay nice. So for now here is the reveal -
drum roll please!
So I don't have a card for you today but I just wanted to share this with you, so you will know that I have not been kidding about being busy! Don't forget to hug the ones you love and get those fingers inky! You light up my life hugs!
