SNSS New Release and Bloghop

Sweet 'n Sassy is releasing three new stamps! We are so excited to welcome illustrator Karla Dornacher with her bible journaling set Worship the Lord!
I am in love with this new set from Karla Dornacher! For my journal page, I went to my Cree hymnal where I mark my father's favourite hymn "Blessed Assurance". My heart was lonely for his voice so I jumped in with both feet and stamped the page! Some days, you just have to do that. It did my heart good.
Here is another shot of my page - I worked on a horizontal space and used 3Dstamp paints from Viva Decor. I simply swiped the colours that I liked and coloured in using prisma pencils.
Lastly, I made a baby girl card and layered it on spellbinder cardmaker die and embellished with ribbon and pearls. So girly and cute! I stamped baby innies inside the card for a sweet message to the new parents.

Blog Hop Giveaway!
What would a Blog Hop be without a giveaway, right? One random commenter will be selected to win a $20 Gift Code to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Be sure to leave a comment by Thursday, August 20th midnight EST. The winner will be posted on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog on Friday, August 21st!

Now…Let's see our August Release!

SNSS Lovely Lotus Candle Tutorial

Good morning Sweet'nSassy friends! This morning, I am revisiting one of my early favourites in my stamping history. I love to give gifts and this is a thoughtful, quick and easy gift! Let's get started...
You will need: Pillar candle (any size), white tissue paper, stamps, ink, colouring medium (I used coloured pencils), wax paper, heat tool, embellishments
Top left: stamp your image on tissue paper. 
Top right: colour with your choice of medium (I used prismacoloured pencils) Bottom left: closely cut out image using scissors
Bottom right: lay trimmed piece over the candle to desired position.
Pull off enough wax paper to wrap around candle. With one hand, hold taut so the stamped image doesn't shift and begin heating with your tool. You will see the wax "liquify" over the area you heat. In other words, you are sealing the tissue paper into the wax of the candle. Carefully, peel off the wax paper off the candle and be sure all portions of tissue has melded into the pillar. It should look like this...
Voila! You are finished. Embellish as desired. For my Candle, I created a tag from SNSS Decorative Plaques die set, and wrapped matching twine around the candle. I stamped the sentiment on the oval tag and sponged the layered piece with Rangers ink.
