Make it Monday #182 - Mason Jar Stamping

Hello friends.  Playing along with Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge, where Melissa Phillips shows us a video on how to paint and stamp on Mason jars.  I knew right away I wanted to make my jar like candy corn (one of my favorite fall treats!!), but I see Bonnie Sharp beat me to it!  Oh well, great minds think alike, right?!! :0)  And mine's different enough that there's room for 2 of the jars in the challenge! :0) 


The painting and sanding of my jar worked great, but I did struggle with the embossing.  I used a gold sparkle embossing powder, thinking it would show up brighter.  NOT!!  And for whatever reason, on the white part it hardly showed up at all!  (I used one of the smaller dots in "Polka Dot Basics".)  My tags are from the "Halloween Treats & Sweets" set, and the ribbons, tulle, and burlap are all from my stash drawer.  Now all I need to do is fill the jar...I love mixing candy corn and peanuts together!  (tastes just like a Payday Bar...yummmmm!)

Head on over to Nichole's blog to see Melissa's video and cute pumpkin jar.  You can find all the info to play along right here .

Thanks for stopping by...love it when you do! :0)
