Guest Designer.... Sarah

I am excited about this project today. 
I saw a personalized mason jar that I thought was the coolest idea ever, so I immediately got to work.

This jar is full of home made pomegranate jelly (the best there is)
I first painted the entire jar with silver acrylic paint
Once the paint dried, I used my versafine onyx black ink and inked just the bottom half of the pumpkin from Jaded Blossom's Thanksgiving Wishes stamp set.  I just love the swirls on this guy.
I took the outer rim of the jar off and stamped just the top edge of it with the same pumpkin stamp.
The top of the jar had to match but be elegant and after seeing what the pumpkin did to the side of the jar, I knew I had to reach for the Pattern Kisses stamp set and found the matching swirl design and circled the top. 
The center sentiment is from the Wedding Candies set.

I was so excited when I saw how it came out, and the sentiment was perfect for a homemade jelly. 

I did have to let the jar sit for about a week before the ink was dry against the acrylic paint.  I probably could have used a blow dryer on it if I needed it sooner.

Very clever to use just the swirl portion of the stamp - and beautiful, too!
