stamping on glass

As I mentioned last night, today I worked on candy jars. I found these adorable little square glass jars that were just begging to be stamped and I could not pass them by. And just as I thought, they look really cute. I bet they will look even better tomorrow when they're filled with candy!

I stamped the first one with the tree from the Perfect Presentation level II hostess set using green stayz-on ink. Stampin' Up! used to carry more stayz-on colors but now offers only black, white and brown, so unfortunately I cannot be your supplier for this ink, but it is still available from other sources.

I stamped the second jar with images and sentiment from the City of David set in black stayz-on ink. I then colored in the images with my Bic permanent markers. I know that most people use Sharpies, but I cannot tell you enough good things about my Bic markers. I purchased a multi-colored assortment at Sam's Club for a lot less than the equivalent Sharpies assortment and I find that they work just as well plus I love the colors. I use them every time I need a permanent marker, for coloring on acetate or glass.

I will show you more jars tomorrow, after I fill them with goodies, and I'll also show you my votive candle holders and some stamped candles.

Those jars are so cute, Diane. What a nice idea to stamp on them, rather than decorate them with paper and ribbon. Thanks for letting us in on the details of how to do them. Can't wait to see your next photos of them finished with candy!
