My first project is a candle using a Thanksgiving image.
The actual digi stamp hasn't been added to the store but check out what else they have and soon it should be up at Creative Kuts!
There is also a cutting file that is exactly the same as this and you can get there from here.

Directions on how to make a candle with a digi stamp:

Heat gun
Wax Paper
Tissue Paper
Digi Stamp file
Sheet of cardstock
Markers (in my case copics)

1. I first took my cardstock and ran it through the printer and printed out the image I wanted.
2. Then I taped tissue paper with the shiny side facing up to the cardstock and put it in the printer the same way and printed on it again.
3. Afterwards you color the tissue paper in the way you want your digi stamp to look.
4. Cut the tissue paper off and position it on the candle the way you like it.
5. Take the wax paper and wrap it around where you can hold onto the extra pieces behind it.
6. Then take the heat gun and begin to heat the area where the tissue paper is at, you will notice a change as the tissue paper sets into the candle.
7. Take the wax paper off, if you still see some tissue paper you can quickly run the heat gun over that area.
8. Then you can add whatever you like to decorate extra on your candle, I used prima leaves around mine.

My next project is a Christmas project.
They are Christmas ornaments.

There isn't a digi file for these yet in the store but I will share the cut file. It is here.

I wanted to put these on my Christmas tree but it is no where to be found. :( I stickled them all and used copic markers on them.
