I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

With Hugs & Love

Hello peeps,

The end of the week is almost here. I hope everyone is hanging in there okay. I was out at one of my hospital customer's site yesterday to do some work on one of the lab systems. It's a large county hospital and luckily they have separate entrances for patients from employees and vendors. I'm home today again, crafting in-between work meetings. Not a bad way to do it.

I made this card using Laurie's sketch for this week's Paper Players challenge. A great, open sketch. I was looking through some of my misc. patterned papers for another card the other day and ran across this group from a Simon Says Stamp monthly kit from last year. For some reason,  I thought I needed to use it and went looking for some stamps to match. This is a set of stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn called Fab Flowers.

 For the jar, I used the die from the LF set called How You Bean. I cut two jars, one from white card stock and one from Vellum. The sentiment is heat embossed over Garden Green ink using VersaMark and Clear EP. The vellum is glued over the white piece after it was colored and the flower stems were glued in place.

All of the flowers are stamped with various Gina K and Taylored Expressions ink cubes, cut out with the corresponding die and arranged in the jar. Pretty simple. I used a piece of SU linen thread to make a bow.

Here is the inside. I turned it into a birthday card.

Thanks for looking in and have a good Thursday afternoon and evening,

  1. Colleen your little jar of flowers is full of pretty colours and so cheery; love the detail on the jar too - the writing looks almost stitched. Thanks for playing along with us over at The Paper Players this week!
