Addicted-To-Stamps Design Team December Holiday Blog Hop


 Welcome to the Addicted-To-Stamps December Holiday Blog Hop!

This is our Holiday blog hop and the design team has a lot of great projects in store for you.
There are so many great ideas of what you can do with digi stamps also that you will see along the way that may give you some Christmas ideas.
Please hop along with each of us!
Each design team member will choose on Monday one person that commented on their blog to receive the digi stamp they used for free!!! Doesn’t that sound like an exciting small piece of blog candy???

We have a prize for the Grand Prize Winner!
We will randomly draw on Monday evening and in a new post announce a winner that will win 3 digi stamps of their choice from our store. They are valued at $3.99 each, which equals a near $12.00 value.
And a whole bunch of other stuff pictured here.
You need to do 3 things:
  1. Follow the Addicted-To-Stamps blog (at the beginning)
  2.  Like the Facebook fan page: Facebook Page
    (We just had a big 500 follower giveaway and will have another at 1000!)
  3. Comment on all the blogs including the main one! And be sure to leave a way to contact you, and in the comment on this main blog if you want you can go to http://scrapbookstampsociety and let us know which digi stamp is your favorite. If you do that you will receive that one in addition to the 3 digis you choose, if you win.
Today we are showing off a small selection of our digi stamps. We however carry many more digis, clear rubber stamps, molds and other products. We also have another site that carries Fantasy Fabric Blocks.
Here are our links to check us out:

Thanks for hopping along!

Here is my project:
My digi was made into a candle!
I absolutely love this technique and I stickled all of the white parts of the image.

Directions:
You print the digi on paper.
Take tissue paper shiny side up and tape it over it reprint.
Then color the image.
Take the tissue paper off gently, I usually cut it off around the tape.
Put onto the candle, and get some wax paper.
Wrap the wax paper around where there is enough to grab onto.
Heat with a heat gun, you can tell as the tissue paper is absorbed into the candle.
Take the tissue paper off and if you can still see areas not melted into the candle you can just go over those quickly and they will absorb.
Then you can add anything extra you would like to decorate the candle.
I did actually go ahead and do my stickles while coloring the digi but you could wait until the end if you wanted.
Blog Candy:
One person will be picked by random.org on Monday evening to receive this digi image.
Good Luck and enjoy your hop!
