I hope your Weekend was AMAZING!!?? Mine was FAST!! We had LOTS going on and it has been chilly and raining so most of our outside activities were interestingly not ruined!!?? It was actually nice to see the rain and we were able to keep warm by bundling up and then got to break out the Hot Chocolate!! =) We celebrated my Grandma's 80th Birthday today too which isn't officially until tomorrow, but it was SO AWESOME to get to see most of my Cousins and their Families and then I'd have to say I'm probably one of the LUCKIST because I was also BLESSED with the MOST AMAZING Aunts and Uncles!! =) My dad has all Brothers and they all married AMAZING Woman and I TRULY LOVE them!! I'm really close to a COUPLE of them my Aunt Cindy who is my God Mother and has ALWAYS been SURPER Special to me and then my Aunt Kerry who OMG if only there were a THOUSAND of her the world would be a BETTER Place!! LOL!! I spent most of my day talking to her and I just LOVE her!! She has 6 girls with my Uncle Steve and these girls are ALL so BEAUTIFUL inside and out!! =) I LOVE my FAMILY!! We have a couple NEW Babies in the family and then my sister Kylee is due again in January so we will be growing again by one more!! =) SO EXCITED!! Seems like the babies are always passed around and held by everyone so needless to say I got my baby fix for the week!! =)
Anyway, I wanted to stop in a share a Picture of the
SWEETEST Little Witch Pumpkin Mason Jar that you have EVER seen!! =) LOL~I may be just alittle bit bias!! =) I saw the AWESOME New Make It Monday Challenge over on the Paper Trey Ink Blog and I just had to Play along!! =) The UBER Talented and Equally SWEET Melissa Phillips was the host this week and I just LOVE her Project that she shared!! She made an AWESOME video you can watch over on the PTI Blog if your interested!! =) It took me ALL Week to get it done though with my Left Hand and then ALL of my follow up apt.'s I had all week but I'm SO in LOVE with how it turned out and I hope you LOVE it too!! So here is what I've made for the
Make It Monday #182: Mason Jar Stamping Challenge!! I was Inspired by these Pumpkin Pictures that I came across on Pinterest!! =)
I started by painting my Mason Jar using some Mathra Stewart White and Fog Satin Acrylic Paint!! I had to paint two coats to get the coverage I wanted and I actually wanted some texture beings I was wanting to look like a White Pumpkin (my FAVORITE)!! I then sanded the edges to make it look distressed and then I took the PTI Polka Dot Basics Stamp Set and stamped the Little Dots in Versa Mark Ink and then added my WOW Gold Glitter Embossing Powder too and I LOVE the Gold Polka Dots on the White Pumpkin Mason Jar Base!! I then took the PTI Shape Up Series: Pumpkin die and die cut the Nose and the Mouth from some Black Felt for my Pumpkins Face (I had to cut down the mouth alittle bit to make it fit the scale of my Jar better though) I decided to use Buttons for my eyes after I found these Black Oval Buttons with Bling around the edges at Hobby Lobby this week in the Clearance bin for 25 cents WHOOP WHOOP talk about a score!! =) I think I cleaned out almost the ENTIRE bin and I think the lady checking my out on Wednesday was like WOW what are you going to do with ALL of these Buttons!!?? I told her I crafted with them and I don't think she got it, but I LOVE them and I can't wait to share them in my up coming projects!! =) Then I wanted to make a Hat for my Witch Pumpkin and after looking through my PTI Dies, I decided on the PTI-Tissue Paper Favors #1 Die and I had to trim it down just alittle and then I folded up the edges for the Brim of the Hat!! I added some Gold Glitter Tissue Tape from My Mind's Eye and then a Sweet Little Prima Printed Flower that I added some Paint and Ink to Distress it some and then I added a different Gold Button to the Center!! (yep you guessed it another 25 cent find) =) I wanted to make a Junk Bow too so I used some Cream Tulle Ribbon for my Wrap Ribbon and several different Ribbons for my Bow!! I die Cut a PTI Tremendous Tags Die Set and then Stamped my Pumpkin from the PTI Halloween Treats & Sweets Stamp Set!! I Colored my Pumpkin in and then Stamped the Boo Sentiment from the PTI Mr. Bones Stamp Set in Versa Mark Ink and then added my WOW Gold Glitter Embossing Powder!! I then took the same Circle Stamp and Stamped some Circles on the Tag in Versa Mark and then added some WOW Clear Matt Dull Regular Embossing Powder for a FUN textured look without the Shine!! I mask off the Pumpkin Image though because I didn't want it covered!! I LOVE how it turned out!!
I'm also entering this into the WOW Embossing Powder Challenge which was to use the same stamp in a Different Way over on the WOW Blog!! =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
