Welcome to day number two of the blog tour! I have been having so much fun with my new White Stazon ink pad (page 190 in the Idea Book & Catalog) the last few days! I’ve been wanting to get this ink pad for a while now but kept forgetting when I was placing orders. Finally I have it and this is one of my first projects!
Stazon ink is a permanent ink and can be used on non-porous services like glass and plastic in addition to cardstock and paper. I picked this piece of glass up at my local dollar store for just a dollar and used my ink and Serene Snowflake stamp set (from the Holiday mini catalog) to spice it up a bit! When you are stamping on glass you have to be careful because the stamp will slide. As long as you’re taking your time and not rushing, you’ll probably be okay though. It is very possible to stamp around the corners but once again you have to take your time.
I have a couple more pictures to show. In the picture above I used some red tissue paper to line the glass which brings out the details a little better. In the other pictures I did not use tissue paper but once again I did use candy. You could also place a candle in there or some nuts . . .
Don’t you think this would make a lovely, inexpensive gift for a teacher or coworker? Nobody can resist candy and the jar can be used over and over!
Of course it’s always nice to give your gift with a hand-stamped card that matches. Here are a couple cards made with the Serene Snowflake stamp set that would be great to go with the jar!
Thank you for visiting! I look forward to sharing another great idea with you tomorrow! Please continue on the tour to visit Kim Warne.
