Stampendous New Release Week: Quoth the Raven


I'm continuing the fun for this week's Stampendous New Release Celebration with a Halloween candle and coaster today.  This project uses several newly released products; the candle it self features the cling rubber Raven background stamp.  To create the candle, here is what I did:
  • Stamp Raven background on tissue paper. 
  • Tear around image, apply ink as desired using sponge. 
  • To apply image to candle: Place image on candle, wrap wax paper around and hold tightly. Heat gently with heat tool until wax melts slightly, adhering tissue paper to candle. Slowly peel off wax paper. (want to see a quick tutorial?)

Here is a better look at the coaster, with the new Trick or Treat Color Fragments and the cling rubber Autumn Words on it.  Making the coaster was easy - here's how:
  • Stamp Autumn Words on coaster. 
  • Add ink directly from ink pad to edges; apply to coaster surface with a sponge. 
  • Spray Goosebumps texture spray onto coaster surface, sprinkle on color fragments and allow to dry.
To celebrate my excitement over the new release goodies, I'll be giving away a different Stampendous stamp every day I share a New Release post this week (so comment on each New Release Week post, for even more chances to win)!  All you have to do is comment on the post to win - I'll announce the winners for each post on Tuesday, July 31 (so please comment by Monday, July 30 at 6:00 PM EST).  Today, I'm giving away this fun cling rubber Skeleton Poem:
