Mason Jar candles


How cute are these mason jars!  I found these beauties at Michael's for $2.10~~~  you read that right!  Well,  just because I absolutely love to decorate pretty things I find I knew I had to get some.
They come already decorated with the burlap and the raffia knot so I just added the leaves, berries and little pumpkin.  Again, I just went into my stash of holiday decorations and looked to see what I could use.  Then I put our new stamp set Holiday invitation to work.  I stamped Give thanks on a piece of very vanilla cardstock in chocolate chip ink and added it to the jar.  The ones below are for Christmas.  Same idea just with holly berry.

Mingle All the Way!


I was going for a vintage kind of look here.  I stamped natural white cardstock with Basic Gray ink with the Hardwood background stamp, then embossed with white embossing powder the Mingle all the Way stamp then used a sponge dauber to create the chalkboard effect.  I stamped the boots from Bootiful Occasion and added some baker's twine.


Red or Blue Boots?  I couldn't decide!


Then with our awesome fry box I a made a matching fry box to fill with treats

Nature's Peace


This is a new stamp called Nature's Peace, it is a large background stamp.  I used it here on basic black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.   To give it the chalkboard effect use your sponge daubers and lightly brush white ink across the image then just frame in a frame of your choice.  I added a touch of greenery from my christmas decoration stash.


The matching card is made with another one of our background stamps- Hardwood, covers the entire 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" card as you can see.   I stamped it in chocolate chip on natural white cardstock.
Pear Pizzaz is behind the basic black piece and the technique is the same on the card as the framed artwork.  The candy dots in cherry cobbler are the berries and  I used the same greenery.   I also try and look around the house to repurpose and use what I have to add to my pieces.
