SOS29 - Stamped candles

Welcome to another Shopping Our Stash challenge - this week's theme is Light and/or white or Meljens - use something from your stash that represents light- candle, fireplace, stars, Christmas lights, or decorate a candle, make a lantern, etc, or make a project that is mostly white or use Meljens image - our sponsor for this week.
When I saw the "light" challenge, I immediately thought about stamping on candles. For today I made 2 - the little one with the red snowman was easy peasy, the dark burgundy was harder - probably because it has a little texture. The images didn't want to adhere to the surface, rather they were sticking on the wax paper. Both stamps are from Inkadinkado. They are both stamped with Versamark and heat embossed.
The brads on the tree were just pushed in the wax, I used hot glue on the star and ribbons. I found out that's the only thing that would hold good on candles - even the strongest glue dots don't do the job properly.

Challenges:
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas gift
Crafty cardmakers - heat embossing
The Ribbon Girls - Christmas + ribbon
Just Some Lines - Handmade gift
