roomie gift...

So what I am showing you today is the gift that I made for the lovely Sarah who I had the pleasure of sharing a room with. As well as the candle and the card I also made her a bag tag to match the convention bag - which was the same as the ones that I made for my SU sisters and mummy!
The candle I have decorated using the traditional method of tissue paper and a heat gun. As the candle was a coloured one I chose darker colours to stamp in and was more careful when trimming the image before sealing to the candle. I have used the stamp set vintage vogue and stamped the vine in old olive and then the flowers in basic black. I have also added a gem to the centre of the flower for some extra bling! I have made the card to match and have used the colours pumpkin pie, basic black and whisper white. I have stamped the vine in old olive also. The flowers that I have added to the panel are in both pumpkin and black and i have decoupaged these using a dimensional, again I have added a jewel to the centre. This was onto whisper white and then I have inked the edges and this is then mounted onto pumpkin pie and then onto a basic black card blank. On the right hand side of the white panel I have added a tab of basic black ribbon. I put the candle into a clear bag and added some linen thread to tie the top.
I hope you like the card and candle and thanks for looking - Debbi x x x

  1. Hiya Debbi,

    I loved this candle so much. Thank you. I took it with me this week for two workshops and told my ladies about you. They loved the candle too.

    If you check out my blog I have just posted a scrapbooking LO I did today. I used the bag tag you made me as the central feature of the LO. Thought you might like to see that I have kept it as a Convention memento ;0)

    Hope all is well your end,
