This week's recipe swap at Catered Crop
is to use canning jars. They can be real jars or stamped jars. The challenge says...
For this challenge you can use a canning Jar (Mason, Kerr, Ball, etc.) and fill it, alter it, tag it, decorate it . . . what ever you want to do. Or you can create a card (or scrapbook page) with a canning jar on the card.
As usual, Linda has put together a Pinterest board full of inspiration
and I almost
felt inspired to alter a real jar. But I am so firmly into paper-crafting, other types of crafts totally elude me. Luckily, there are great canning stamps out there!
It's hard to tell from photos, but this is just a tiny 3.25" card. I've been having fun with this size lately - it's easy to put the entire focus on special stamps that might get lost on a bigger card, particularly when I tend to keep lots of white space.
Did you know it is World Card Making Day today??!! I hope each of you gets a chance to celebrate!
- Stamps: Paper Smooches Crystal Clear, Word Salad
- Paper: MME Adorbs, PTI Smokey Shadow
- Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow, Limeade Ice, SU Smoky Slate, Hero Arts Pale Tomato
- Accessories: SU Island Indigo twine, clear sequins
Gorgeous, love how the jar is stamped off the background...fab!ReplyDelete

I think this is a perfect take on the sketch. Love the simple flowers in a jar. Great bit of striped paper and a smattering of sequins...finished off perfectly. Love this. BevReplyDelete
Hi, Kim! What a fun jar card...I adore this! Just had to stop by to wish you a happy World Card Making Day and thank you for year-round inspiration! I do love your work!ReplyDelete
This is adorable, Kim! I love the colours here especially the Pale Tomato with the Limeade Ice. So yummy!ReplyDelete
It's such a fun sized little card. Are you able to get envelops for that size or do you make your own?
Kim, this is just too cute! I love your idea with that fabulous canning jar and sweet flowers.ReplyDelete
i love how this came out.ReplyDelete
Lovely! I love how you stamped the jar off the page like that!ReplyDelete
When I imagine this one's mini size, it makes me love it even more. That jar off the edge is wonderful.ReplyDelete
