Five for Friday & Enjoy Summer Mason Jar Card

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Just a kind reminder that we are taking some time off and all orders placed while we are away will start shipping on September 3. Five Mason Jar Lights for Friday Did you notice that there is a small canning jar stamp in our Riverside Stamp Set? Joni’s card here immediately reminded me of these Mason Jar lights. Amazing, right? I was inspired to make a card! I used the christmas tree lights and the dashed the lines from A Homemade Christmas Stamp Set to create a chandelier look; Jar stamp from Riverside Stamp Set; Alphabet stamps from Be My Guest Stamp Set. Fireflies are also from Riverside Stamp Set. I colored the inside of the jars quickly with a Y06 Copic marker. Enjoy your summer, everyone! Happy Crafting!

Snowy Night Glittery Shaker Card by JJ Bolton

Hello everyone! We have another guest today! One thing I love about JJ Bolton is that she is full of “surprises”! Her cards are created with fun techniques and clever uses of products, but there is usually something unexpected that makes me smile. On this card, that something is how JJ combined all four of our new sets together! I was all about critter stamps until JJ showed me what graphic stamps can do. I still collect cute images but my favorites are those ones that can be combined for endless possibilities. JJ’s product design reflects her creativity, do check them out! Now, take it away, JJ!
