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

Another CAS Celebration card

I have made another card for the
Birthday Celebration Challenge
Congratulations on your 4th Year Celebrations.
As the heading says - CAS
Starting with basic coloured card stock I added
some colour blending with
Tim Holtz Distress Inks on my white card base
 adding other colours through a
TCW Stencil. I then cut it on an angle
as I like to change it up a bit every now and then.
Decided not to pop it this time so went on
to add my sentiments
Celebrate - CAS-ual Fridays
and the smaller one - Pink & Maine.
I would have like to use a Congratulations stamp but
didn't have one big enough.
Added some gems to add a touch more colour.

This is popping over to the latest challenge over at
Addicted to Stamps & More for their

Details are Here
