I have a quick and easy project to share today, using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® StazOn® Solvent inks. I am a total craft hoarder, and save jars throughout the year to use for packaging gifts and whatever other crafty ideas I can think of!
Here is the supply list for this quick project:
- IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® StazOn® Solvent ink in Cactus Green, Fuchsia Pink, Teal Blue, and Sunflower Yellow
- Flower Power stamp set (Sheena Douglass for Crafter's Companion; also available in the UK)
- Tag (from Crafter's Companion's fabulous large package of 100 tags in assorted sizes)
- Jute twine
- Heat tool
- Jar (washed and dried)
To create the jar, I inked up the flowers in different StazOn® inks and stamped them where desired. After stamping each one I heat set it; if I made a big mistake while stamping I just wiped it off and started over! I stamped a few of the images twice, to create bolder flowers and visual interest on the jar.
Tip: don't put your stamps on an acrylic block to stamp them. A great advantage of EZMount™ stamps is that they can be used unmounted, which makes them flexible (and that's a bonus when you are stamping on non-flat surfaces!).
I also used the StazOn® inks to create the tag. The sentiment came from Sheena Douglass' Through the Rain stamp set (also available in the UK). I tied it on to the jar using jute twine and voila! An instant gift!
I cleaned all of my stamps with the super-useful StazOn® Solvent ink cleaner (available in the UK as well). I love the dauber-top on the bottle - it makes things SO easy!
