I had time this morning to just sit and play with some new goodies. Love when that happens! So I pulled out the jar image from Clearly Besotted Stamps spring blooms set and paired it with the new Simon Says Stamps tilted banner dies and matching tilted banner sayings :)
I was inspired by a piece of patterned paper from the Dear Lizzie range that was highlighted on Moxie Fab World yesterday. See the one 9 down called ‘dream catcher’ – beautiful!
I inked up the back of my jar stamp with Hero Arts soft leaf and stamped to create a shadow effect, then I added the outline in Hero Arts forever green. Finally I used the matching jar die cut to create a mask and stamped some polka dots from Clearly Besotted Stamps building blocks set; first stamping off onto scratch paper so the pattern within the jar was subtle. I dressed up the jar with a bit of twine and some enamel dots. Finally I added the banner from Simon Says Stamps tilted banner die and the ‘so sweet!’ sentiment from tilted banner sayings. I’ve not had a dimensional banner like this before and I love what it adds to the card :)
Well that’s me for today, I’m recovering from a crazy busy few days; Mother’s Day was Sunday here in the UK and we celebrated my son’s birthday too. Lots of fun was had charging around the zoo with his friends and he actually squeaked when he opened the card saying he could have a pet of his own! My heart was full to see him so delighted :)
