Mason Jar Candy Corn!

This week's PapertreyInk Make it Monday video was a tutorial about sprucing up your Mason Jars.  I don't have the kind of Mason Jar that Melisa shows in her video - but I do have a ton of other kinds so I got to work ......

I decided that I would make my Mason Jar into a LARGE candy corn - I don't even like the candies but I really wish I did - they look so pretty!

I basically followed the video when painting the jars....making sure to add a bit of a vintage look by sanding the paint when dry, to show the jar label.

I used the stamp set Fall Elegance to create my tag.  I die cut the Bookmark Die and then cut it a  wee bit shorter, rounding the corners with my Corner chomper.

To emboss the gold dots on the Mason Jar, I used an older set, Shapes by Design.

Autumn Blessings...Fusion

Good Morning - another Fusion Card Challenge is up and running - and did you know that I WON the last Fusion Card Challenge??!!  You can see my cute little creation here.... Thank you to the Fusion gurus that have the power!

This month the challenge is Sunflowers and I chose to create FUSION by using both the inspirational photo and the sketch provided!

I stamped my image from Papertrey Ink's Autumn Abundance, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my copic marker.

I had seen Debbie Olsen's colouring of the same image and if you can find that image on her blog - it is pretty much the same colours, shading etc......she really is the Master!

The patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink as is the Summer Sunrise and Classic Kraft Cardstock and  I coloured my seam binding with  copic marker to match the cardstock.

We're Blessed.....

Hello - I pretty much LOVE this Blessed stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and when I saw the Color Throwdown colour challenge this week I knew I would use it for my creation......

I also found the new Clean and Simple sketch challenge, #309, and thought it would be perfect.

I masked off a section of my front panel - white cardstock, and stamped some pretty flowers from Reverse Confetti's Petals 'N Posies in Papertrey Ink Classic Kraft, Soft Stone, Aquamist and Limeade Ice ink.

When I removed the mask, there was the perfect area to stamp my sentiment.  I added a few little sequins, popped it up onto a Soft Stone cardbase and perfect!
