This is my first card using the Stampin Up Garden Silhouettes Hostess set. I adore these stamps and look forward to doing heaps of cards with this one set. The sentiment stamp is from Sincere Salutations and the dots were using the polka dot background stamp.

Here is one of the cards I have made for my Be Happy sample board.
I am not usually into bold bright colours but this stamp set just speaks " fun" to me so I automatically went for vibrant colours. I have made a couple of others too but will have to upload those later.
The ink and cardstock are Taken with Teal and Whisper White.

Well here it is.....
My first ever stamped candle.
I have been looking at samples of these for months over on Splitcoast and on other peoples blogs but have only just plucked up the courage to try it for myself.
I used SU set Lovely as a Tree, which I have to say I believe will always be one of my favourite sets. I actually stamped the trees twice to fit all the way around the candle so it was a bit tricky when I came to the ironing stage but just did it in two halves.
Can anyone out there answer a very important question for me regarding these stamped candles please. Are they still safe to burn or does attaching the stamped tissue paper design make them purely decorative ?

Well I am back and with some exciting news. I have signed up with Stampin Up as a demonstrator and am just awaiting delivery of my starter kit. This should be with me next week sometime and I am like a child waiting for Christmas at the moment. I now need to get myself in gear and create the samples I will need for my first workshop.
