Using your favorite rubber stamps is such an easy way to personalize those inexpensive plain white candles into a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. I often turn to this technique when I’m looking for that perfect item for someone special who already seems to have everything. I can choose images and color combos that fits into their home décor, making it a heartfelt gift that is definitely for them alone.
For this candle I used my current favorite Stampin’ Up! stamp set Just Believe. To add a bit more interest to this solid image, I used markers to color in the flowers and stems before stamping. I added a coordinating greeting card, masking off a horizon line and sponging in various hues of greens and blues.
I finished this gift by wrapping it in a clear cellophane bag and adding a quick gift tag and piece of ribbon. Who wouldn’t love receiving (or giving!) this wonderful gift!
