Look what I found! Some OLD Stampin' Up! stamped candles! The other day I did a little "cleaning" in my front bedroom where I stash all my retired stamping products and all my unfinished craft projects and materials from before my Stampin' Up! days. I found these candles in a drawer, but what is interesting are the old Stampin' Up! images from back when I became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
The fruit images are from a stamp set called "Citrus & Such" and stamped with the old Spectrum ink pads, which were a strip of several colors of ink so you could get a multi-colored image. The flower on the candle in the middle was perhaps in my Starter Kit when I signed up, "Fresh Flowers". Not much choice, if any, back then of what you got in your Starter Kit! The last candle has a heart from "Love Always" and the bottom border is a wheel called "Love Swirls". I think my upline made that one for me.
And just a couple more nostalgic items: a small tin bucket stamped with a variety of stamps and an old jar, painted, and then stamped with Fresh Flowers. I think my stamping, and everyone's, has come a long way in ten years!
I'm sure any demonstrator or stamper who has been around Stampin' Up! for awhile will recognize these old images! I think maybe the first stamp sets you start out with become near and dear to your heart forever!
