On the 6th Day of Christmas …

… my true love decided to cook me an amazing supper and the table was lit with these amazing candles!!!!!!

Well…..not really…..but here’s to always dreaming!!!!!!

I decided to use my AMAZING Let It Snow! stamp set this month and create some beautiful candles to display around the house this holiday season.  I ended up using the stamp set in two different ways.

project #1:  Snowflake embossed candle

This candle was created using a turquoise “base candle”, white embossing powder, a heat gun, the Let It Snow! stamp set & some colourful beads.

I poured white, fine embossing powder all over the candle and rubbed it in {the embossing powder seems to somewhat stick to the outside layer of the candle}.  ** Be sure you put something down to protect your work surface.  I heated the candle & the embossing powder with my heat gun (a small section at a time), watching the wax of the candle melt and making the embossing powder swirl around in the melting wax.  While the wax was still hot, I pressed my Let It Snow! snowflake stamp into the hot wax to make an embossed impression on the candle (no ink needed).  I quickly added some tiny beads, pressing them into the melted wax.  I continued around the entire candle — heating, stamping the image & adding some beads.

project #2:  Snowflake & Alcohol Ink Hurricane

I took a hurricane candle holder that I already had around the house and created a custom-made Christmas Hurricane.  Using some Ranger Alcohol Inks (on the inside of the green hurricane), some silver spray paint (the base used to be black) and the Let It Snow! stamp set, this candle holder is now “decked” for the holidays.

I used white, fine embossing powder to add snowflakes to the outside of the hurricane.  With the small votive candle lit inside, you can really see the Alcohol Ink “veins” and the crisp, white embossed snowflake images.

I trimmed the base of the candle holder with two embossed snowflake images on cardstock, with ribbon sandwiched between.  I pop-dotted smaller snowflake images in the middle (on both sides).

Hope you have enjoyed this “6th DayInspiration” filled with creative ways to light up your Christmas Season.

May you find happiness & joy this Christmas,
