How about some Home Decor

Stampin Up has lots of products and I like to use them, but I don’t always go for those that are bulky or not fit in a greeting card envelope.  Until this year, that is.

I saw large quart jars stamped with a greeting on the glass and then decorated with ribbon and pine sprigs in the Stampin Success magazine published by Stampin Up.  With a nice white candle inside I knew they would make great gifts for friends and family.

A little hot glue and supplies and these jars were finished in no time.  I searched through all my quart sized mason jars here at home and found ones that had no design or texture on the back side of the jar.

I did first try using the Black Archival ink but found that even after heating with a heat gun, the ink smeared. I pulled out my Stazon jet black ink pad and it worked perfectly.  It is designed to stamp and stay on anything, including glass, plastic and metal.

  •  Ink the stamp on a block then stamp straight down on the jar.
  • Carefully rock the stamp to the left and right to transfer the edges of the image.
  • If it didn’t come out perfectly, just clean with an alcohol wipe and stamp again.

I learned that it worked best to complete the decor of the jar first before stamping.  I used hot glue to attache the black striped ribbon, pine sprigs and the Lemon Lime Twist Bow. There were enough Green Sprigs to complete 6 jars.  All the supplies are listed below for easy ordering.

Next stop candle shopping.
