Welcome Jar of Flowers - Stampin' Up! Jar of Love

  I thought I would try to get this card posted before the challenge ends over at Freshly Made Sketches this afternoon.  I used their layout for this Welcome card I made for the newest member of my Stampin' Up! team.  It took me a week to get this card made but I got it finished and in the mail to Becky to welcome her to the Stampin' Up! demonstrator family.


  While the Jar of Love set has a lot of different sentiments included none of them were quite was I needed so I used the Barnyard Babies set and used my Basic Black marker just to ink up the "welcome" part of the "welcome, little lamb" stamp.  I didn't quite follow the sketch in regard to the sentiment placement but that's artistic license and all!  :)

  The Serene Scenery DSP stack has so many great patterns and this barn wood print seems like the perfect backdrop to my jar of flowers.

  The flowers are stamped off once in Delightful Dijon and then the centers are also stamped with full strength Delightful Dijon.  The leaf stems are Old Olive; some stamped off once, others full strength. Once I had everything cut out I layered the stems in the jar and then added the flowers adhered with dimensionals.

  To pull in some more of Crumb Cake color I stamped the "burlap" wrap and then hand cut it.  I added a Crushed Curry bakers twine's a really close match to the Delightful Dijon when it's stamped off.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
