Tinting Jars and Numerical Retired Stamp Set List

ARTICLE FROM STAMPIN' UP BLOG 4/23/13; written by Cindy B, Stampin' Up Staff Writer:

Want another way to deliver May Day flowers? Try tinting a glass jar using Mod Podge and Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills. (I used Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Ink Refill for this project.) The process is easy and the results are spectacular.
  1. Add a few drops of Classic Stampin' Ink Refill to about 1 Tbsp. of water. (I used Rich Razzleberry for this project.) Mix with a spoon until blended.
  2. Pour about 2 Tbsp. Mod Podge or white glue into a clear jar; add water and ink mixture. Stir.
  3. Swirl mixture in jar until the sides are completely coated.
  4. Turn jars upside down on newspaper for about ten minutes, then place right-side up to dry for several hours or until clear. To speed drying, put jars right-side up on waxed paper (on a cookie sheet) in a slightly warm oven (about 180 degrees) for 20–30 minutes or until completely clear.
Tip: Don’t put liquid in the jars as it will rinse off the color. I filled one of my jars with white sand and artificial flowers and the other with white sand and a flameless LED tea light. The latter was not May Day-esque, but still looked cool!

Also, I converted the Retired Stamp Set List so that stamp sets are listed by page number; if you'd like the PDF,  just contact me and I'll email it to you!  Have a great day!
