FLLC Glass Candle Holders & How To ( Reloaded)

*ETA* For some reason this post wasn't showing the pictures. I deleted it and reposted it I hope it works now:) Sorry for the double post for those who are google reader.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! Yesterday I stamped on a mug and thought to myself this background would be so cool on glass. So I ran to Walmart and found these cute glass candle holders the triangle one was .97 cents the rounded square one was $1.23. I used stazon to stamp the background. I had a lot of questions and emails asking how I stamped on the mug so I took a picture to show you. I hope that helps! Just remember to apply a lot of pressure so the ink makes good contact. If you are using craft ink the stamp will slide and will get muddy looking if you press to hard. With the Stazon ink on the glass you need to work super fast because the ink dries fast. I cleaned my stamp with hot water and soap between stamping each side.
You can find this awesome Damask background stamp at Flourishes LLC

Email Notification and Comments??

So blogger is acting up! My emails aren't going out and my comments aren't coming in to my email? I have no clue what is up! I'm so sorry!!! If this one goes through make sure to check out what you've missed:) I hate not having control, hummm how many of you knew that? LOL! Anyway I'm aware of the issue. I just don't know how to fix it. I emailed the powers that be, so far no help! Hang in there:)

WT153 FLLC Damask Mug

Hi there! Today I wanted to try this idea I had for the new Damask background stamp from FLLC. I inked up the stamp with craft white ink since it's not mounted it's a clear stamp I laid it on the mug and slowly applied pressure. The design goes right up to the handle on either side. I used a sponge and white craft ink to sponge the top and bottom edge. I also sponged the handle. Fill it with your favorite treat. This is for decorative uses only!! I have no idea if you can wash it. I do know you can dust it:)
