Thinking of You from my Garden!


Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Lord's day!   Today I have a fun card to share with you.  This was created for a couple challenges on SCS but I wanted to share it with you here as well.  I used this month's release Blue Ribbon Winner and the ODBD Custom Canning Jar Dies as well as past releases Daisy, All Occasion Sentiments, and the Elegant Ovals Die Set.



I stamped the flowers with Memento and colored them with Copics, and fussy cut them out, adding a couple from a second stamping.  I stamped the canning jar twice.... once on card stock, and once on acetate with Stazon Jet Black ink.  I then cut both out with the custom Canning Jar Die.  How fun!  I then drew in a few stems in my jar, and added some leaves from the second image I had stamped, and colored a light blue tone on the card stock layer. I then added the acetate layer on top, giving the jar a glass shine, and putting the leaves and stems "behind" the front of the jar.  I cut my sentiment with the second smallest Elegant Oval die, punched holes in the sides and tied baker's twine around the jar.  I embossed my white layer with a Sizzix folder, and matted with denim and gingham dp from Making Memories.... these were from my stash and were fairly old.  I added another sentiment from the All Occasion Sentiments set at the bottom, and called it done.  This card is 5 x 7, larger than I usually create, but to use the sketch with the images I chose I needed a larger base.  It's hard to get a picture that shows the acetate, but here's a close up of the details:



I hope you like my project.  It was a lot of fun!

Have a wonderful week!

Blessings,
