Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – A Jar full of days gone by!
Day 2 of my Jar of Love projects and I’m loving it even more, I couldn’t make up my mind whether to do a jar of flowers or the fish in a jar so……. I did both. I am so glad I did, it brings a lot of childhood memories back, the days when you used to go down the beck or the pond and fish for tadpoles to bring home in a jar. Then you would pick some wild flowers to take home to mum and she would proudly display them as if they were the best flowers in the world. What happened to that kind of simple fun, its all games machines and ‘Pokemon’ these days! 🙂
There’s such a lot to this card that to describe everything would take forever but everything I used will be in the supply list below.
How cute are the little insects and the fish, and I love that there is also a stamp to put the water in the jars.
Even the flowers are in the set it’s hard to believe how many things are included, and even better, when the stamp set and framelit dies are bought together it’s 10% cheaper.
For the backing paper I used the lovely wood grain effect paper from the Serene Scenery DSP stack, and the small 2″ strip is from the Affectionately Yours DSP stack. I added some gorgeous Bermuda Bay ribbon around the top of the jar.
The Oh happy day banner was done using the Thoughtful Banners bundle and I have used Whisper white for the card base with a layer of Crumb cake behind the DSP.
I think this is now my favourite card I have made, I love it. Maybe its because its so cute or maybe it’s because of the warm memories it brings to me.
