Welcome to my Glass Heart Tealight Candle Holder Tutorial! I discovered that one of my Michael Strong Stamps (Cloisonne' Heart) was almost the perfect size for this candleholder. I purchased the candle holder at WalMart for 1.00 and brought it home and the process began.
To coordinate with the fall colors and decorating in my home, I chose Dee Gruenig's Blending Blox ink pads and used them direct to paper (just press them on your paper and pull down. Easy Peasy!). Then, I stamped with VersaMark and added brown embossing powder and heat embossed it.
The exact shape and size of the candleholder differed slightly from my stamp's shape and size, so I placed the candle holder on top of the image and drew a pencil line around it. Then I trimmed to the pencil line rather than the image line. That step made the image fit the glass holder perfectly!!
The photos below will take you throught the process, step by step. Now how can you beat a stamping project this affordable?? Michael Strong seems to always know what type and size of stamps to manufacture for these types of projects. I hope you enjoy!!
