Jar of Blooms - JAI#364

Hello Crafty Friends

I have had a wonderful week off, during which time we celebrated our youngest fur baby and Hubby's birthdays. We were blessed with the most amazing weather for this time of year in Perth and enjoyed every minute soaking up the winter sun.


I was excited to get back into my crafty space today. This is not hubby's card, but a card I made for the Just Add Ink Challenge #364 Click the link or picture below to play along with the challenge or to check out the other entries. 

Wow wee this was an all round hard one for me as I kept wanting to use the new supplies that I had just ordered - but these goodies, including my new embossing paste, wouldn't be here until next week. 

So I just made do with the things I already have in my ever growing craft stash.


I started with a Smoky Slate card front. To this I Stitched some vellum that had been embossed with the brick wall Embossing Folder and underneath that layer I slipped a small piece of Whisper White that had been stamped in Smokey Slate ink with the hardwood background stamp.

The Jar was cut from Silver Foil cardstock using the Jar of Love Framelits. Using a scrunched up piece of paper I tapped it into Versamark and then randomly onto the Jar and heat embossed in gold. 


The flowers from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and leaves from Remarkable You stamp sets, were white heat embossed on Whisper White card stock. Then using sponge daubers with Daffodil Delight & Lemon Lime Twist inks to colour.

The little Lemon Lime Twist strip of card stock was heat embossed in gold using the Bless Your Heart sentiment from Jar of Love. Finally to add a teeny weeny bit of copper I threw in the copper ribbon bow.

Before I depart to the mess that was my tidy craft room before entering this morning, I wanted to share my news


Wahooooo! Last weeks entry won!! I was so blown away, I did a happy dance all around the house lol
