Taking a Look Back at a Sweet January Release!

ODBD stamps: Canning Jars, Canning Far Fillers, Antique labels and borders, Ornate Borders Sentiments, designed by Grace Nywening

Hello everyone!  Today we are taking a look back at the January ODBD release!

For this card, I used Canning Jar Fillers, Canning Jars, (or Blue Ribbon Winner) Antique Labels Designs , and Ornate Borders Sentiments.  I also used the ODBD Custom Canning Jars Die, the Antique Labels and Border die, and a SB A2 Brackett die.  The designer paper is from Hampton Art (Doilies pack).  I used a heart doily from my kitchen stash, and some bakers twine and bling for embellishments.  So the card is very flat and mailable.. one of my goals for this year! :)

Here are the ODBD products I used:

                       G527 - CANNING JAR FILLERS F462 - CANNING JARSCSBD42 - CANNING JAR DIES
                     F514 - ORNATE BORDER SENTIMENTSANTIQUE LABELS DESIGNSCSBD26 - ANTIQUE LABELS & BORDER DIES

To create the cascading candies spilling out of the jar, I simply stamped the candy hearts image twice, one inside the jar and once again, and cut the second out.  After coloring them with Copics, I used my craft blade to cut a slit where the top of the jar would be and trimmed the candies to a configuration I thought looked somewhat realistic, and I adhered them in that way.  To stamp the jar without the lid on it, I colored the outline of the jar with a marker, leaving out the lid parts, then I hand doodled in a few lines to simulate screw lines in the glass. 

To see more inspiration, please see the ODBD Blog
