Stampscapes Combo

Monday,April 19, 2010

As most of you probably know, I teach some classes on Stampscapes. After you teach the basics, it's hard to come up with different classes to show what Stampscapes can be used for.
So, I try to come up with different ways that you can uses the Stampscapes. We stamp on Glossy cardstock,regular cardstock,tumbled tiles,candles, and do polished stone techniques for a break in the standard methods.

Today I'm posting two samples. One is a standard glossy cardstock, and the second is a Stampscapes scenario done on a candle.

Here are the samples;

"Stampscapes on Glossy Cardstock"

The card was color using the standard Stampscapes coloring method. Dye inks,makeup sponges and some markers.

The second image is the same, but applied to a pillar candle.

"Stampscapes on Candle"

Both scenes are very pleasant, and would make a great all occassion card plus a gift for some one special.

The candle is easy to do, but one thing to remember, is to buy the cheap candles. I get them from the "Dollar Tree" for about a $1.00 each. The expensive candles have a plastic coating on them which does not let the picture adhere. Un-scented white candles work the best.

The image is stamped on white tissue paper and colored. The image is than placed on the candle and trimmed to fit. A piece of wax paper is wrapped around the image and the candle and pulled tight. Now this is the tricky part. With you heat gun heat the edges of the image, just until the tissue seems to disappear. Do not over do it with the heat gun. The heat from the heat gun can be pretty hot so use an oven mitt to hold it. Remove the wax paper and use it to rub down and smooth out the image on the candle.

Walla, you now have a very nice card and a matching candle to give as a gift.

If you have any questions, leave me your email in your comments and I will reply.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Those are absolutely gorgeous. I have one of their stamps but it is so intimidating! You do beautiful work.

    GREAT set, Bob! I love them both!

    I have used the candles at Michaels (got them 1/2 off) and they worked GREAT for this. I did them and posted details on my blog in December...Christmas gifts. ;o)

    Beautiful job, you did!

    Do you think i could use a light weight trace instead of the tissue paper? and how do our copics fare on this type of technique?Any help would be much appreciated
    P.S: you did an absolute fabulous job on these, have inspired me to try
