It's 'Trend Week' at Just Us Girls

Hello to all my Blogger friends. It's that time of the month for
'Trend Week' at Just Us Girls 
and Judy is this weeks Host choosing Jars.
Now I did have a few concerns with this one. I knew
I had a small mason jar stamp but then found a
die which luckily arrived in my mailbox in time to use
for my card.  My first attempt was a shaker - wrong choice
it landed - you know where. My second attempt I wasn't
completely satisfied with either until after I made the
third one (which is above)
Here is how I made it -
Starting with basic white card stock I then got out
a stencil adding texture paste and inking slightly after it dried.
Added a few strips of DP to the bottom then attached my popped
mason jar which I covered with a floral vellum.
My leaves are from Kaisercraft and Marianne Designs.
Flowers are  Martha Stewart.
Filled in the centre of the flowers and
added my heat embossed  Hello sentiment
from Inspired by Stamping.
Won't go into too much detail -  
I added buttons to the top of the die and they looked
so bright - added some vellum (click)  over the top so now
it doesn't look so bad. Thought it would make a nice
birthday card for a sewing friend.
Hope you have been over to Our Blog and checked out
what December's Guest - Teresa made and
the Talented Team.
Hope you are encouraged to play with us this week.
If so you could be our Chic of the Week
and be our Guest in February.
Till next time - Cherrio from

I love the vellum for the vase, Ina, and it matches the flower colors. I also like the one with the buttons in it.

Lisa Kind said...

Both your cards are beautiful in their own way. I love the flowers and the way you created the jar on the first one. THe button jar is just so cute. Great idea using the vellum!

Both cards are very different but equally fabulous! Nice job!

Both of your cards are awesome! I love the floral vellum with the beautiful flower arrangement on the first one. And the second one with the buttons is adorable and so perfect for your sewing friend!
