I tried this technique, it did not come out as good as you did but I enjoyed doing it and will do it again. Thank you.

I discovered this on another site this week so it has become my new fav thing to do. I made a great stamp for my BFF and a pirate stamp for my 4 yr old grandson. It is so easy we had the 4 year old stamp images to make candles for his poppy and his father. But we used the heat tool to apply.
Great video

Yay - I did it! My first stamped candle! My 7 yr old dd made a First Reconciliation candle, and wanted to stamp on it. I've been wanting to try this, but - like with any new technique...well, remember being scared to try heat embossing? lol! Easy peasy! Thanks for the video tutorial Gina - for us scaredy cats who are need in much visual hand holding.

we made these, but used wax paper over the tissue paper

Gina, I have tried this technique another way. Instead of just using the embossing gun straight on the tissue paper, I wrap a piece of waxed paper (wax side on the tissue paper) over the tissue paper and then heat. I have tried it with just a stamped pattern, not embossed and the tissue paper stuck perfectly.
