You Have To Start Somewhere

That is my excuse and I am sticking to it! 

This is my post for Flashback Friday 8.0.  This time around Karin is challenging us to post our first ever 3D project.  I am fairly certain this was my first.  I don't have an exact date for you either.  I certainly wasn't blogging then and they aren't in my SCS gallery either. 

The set is called Kanji and is in the very first catalog I purchased from Stampin' Up!, circa 2004.  I think my girlfriend owns the set and I had borrowed it, so I can't even look at the set to see when it was released.  I know that I made them before I had my daughter, so I will guess that I made these sometime in 2005.  It was probably during the summer as I had a lot of time on my hands that summer.

I still had them in my craft room, yikes!  I think it's high time I burned these bad boys!  I hope to shout that I have a learned a thing or two since then.  I hope you got a little chuckle or a little walk down memory lane from this post!  Enjoy your day!

Details - Stamps: Kanji; Paper: tissue; Ink: Versamark; Accessories: Marcasite ep, heat tool, candles.

I don't chuckle at all - you are too hard on yourself!!- I think they are absolutely BEAUTIFUL and the melted sterine on the purple candle just makes a nice background to the stamping!!! Thank you so much for playing along!

What excellent 3D projects! I haven't altered candles yet...I tell you I'm going to have a mile long list of new techniques for me to try out!!! Thanks so much for playing with us at Flashback Friday 8.0!

So true--we DO have to start somewhere, right? And it's fun to see how far we've come. That's the great thing about this Flashback Friday challenge! I think these candles are way cool. I've never tried this technique, but I'm thinking I should. I'm glad you were able to dig these up and I hope you do get a chance to use them!

These are fantastic! Such a great idea to stamp / alter candles!
