Jar of Flowers

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:

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!
