Hello and welcome to another fun challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! As that catchy title suggests, we'd like you to A.) use anything that came from a jar (flower soft, glitter, perfect pearls, embossing powder, etc.), or B.) use a jar image, or C.) decorate a jar! The choice is yours. I chose to use a jar image on my card:
I saw a card that Heidi Van Laar made (her blog is no longer there so I can't link it, but Google her name and check out her Pinterest cards. It's there) and that I felt compelled to case...with my own spin on it. I took a scrap of felt, dabbed it on the Frost White ink pad and smeared it on my blue panel. I stamped the jar over that. I did some second generation stamping with one of the shadows and stamped that onto the strip of checkered paper, then stamped the jar again onto to that. (as if it's sitting on a picnic table!) I stamped the firefly a couple times. The last one I did some stamp kissing so I could get a mirrored image. Using Prismacolor pencils, I colored in the firefly's butts ☺ and did some shading/highlighting on the jar. Even added some Stickles to the wings because glitter! A couple sentiments and I was done. Oh, I forgot to get a picture of the inside, but there's a Happy Birthday sentiment on it.
I hope you get the chance to play along this week at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see what you created! Please take a moment to check out what my teammates came up with to inspire you - they are awesome! Thanks for stopping by!
