I love this jar!

Another appearance of this wonderful little jar and the die cut that comes with it! It's still a sneak peek of the Holiday catalog so can't give away too much, but I can entice you with a few pictures.

I designed this as one of my card swaps for the SU! convention - next week, woohoo! I can't wait to be there and am thrilled to be taking my Mom with me. It will be nonstop learning, fun and inspiration I know!

Here's a close up as it's a little hard to tell in the first photo that I used a window sheet so you look through to see the stamped jar. Baja Breeze and Real Red seem to go well when paired with Whisper White.

  • Cut the jar out of the top layer of Whisper White using the jar die, emboss it with the Adorning Accents Folder and then adhere a window sheet to the back of it.  
  • Stamp the jar in Baja Breeze onto the die that was cut out, then the cherries in Real Red
    and Gumball Green, adhere the pearls and adhere to Baja Breeze which has been
    distressed on all edges (kind of like can be sometimes, hah!)
  • Stamp the jar lid in Real Red and top off with a little Bakers Twine tied in a bow
    through a  Designer Button.
  • Using Glue Dots adhere two folded pieces of Real Red Ribbon to top right hand corner before assembling card.

    Now off to make twenty seven more!
    Happy Stamping!

Wow Penny! You are one clever lady! I love your idea of using the die to make a peak-a-boo jar. Too Cute. Really lovely card. I may have to CASE this if you don't mind.

I absolutely fell in love with this cheery "CHERRY JAR" card !!

Could it be because I have LOTS of cherry decor in my kitchen :) :)

Look forward to more of your clever creations !!
