Card #1 Inspiration
When I first pulled out the new Jar of Flowers Stamp set with coordinating Jar of Flowers Dies, I knew I wanted to create at least one card based on those adorable pins I've seen in the past where the artist had painted Mason Jars and then painted faces on them.  Here's an example that I based this card on:


(Unfortunately the link on Pinterest only goes to the picture, not the blog post so I don't know who to credit.  If you know the source, I'd love to add it to my post!)

I decided to create my card with the same colors and same theme and the card below is what came of it all.

Jen Carter Mason Jar Faces Whoops Birthday 1 wm

I started by die cutting four of the jars from the Jar of Flowers Dies.  I then used the jar outline stamp from the Jar of Flowers Stamp set to emboss the outline.  I enjoyed looking through my various LID stamps to find different faces for my jars!  I used the Piece of Me Stamp set (pink), Kitty Hugger Stamp Set (yellow), Boo & Faces and So Prickly (aqua) & So Prickly again (purple).

After stamping the faces I attached them with dimensional tape to a piece I had embossed with the new Quilted Stitched Basket Weave die.  The sentiment is die cut with the new Whoops Word die & then stamped with the Whoops stamp set.

Card #2
For my second card today I used a new beautiful stamp set, Blossoms & Banners, and the coordinating die, Blossoms & Banners die set.

I started this card by diecutting the white & purple cardstocks with the Quilted Stitched Basket Weave die.  I cut small strips of the purple to use as accents on my white card.  I then die cut the banner with the Blossoms & Banners die set and stamped the coordinating image with the Blossoms & Banners Stamp Set.  I colored the images with my copics & added Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen over the top for some fine glitter. I finished the card off by adding some white glitter enamel dots.

I also added a strip of purple cardstock die cut with the Quilted Stitched Basket Weave die on the inside of my card that you can see a peek of here.
