Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Mason Jars

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge:

I went very, very literal with this challenge!  But I have this cute little mason jar dies that I had to use.  I wanted to keep a school theme, but didn't have pencils so I added apples.  I even went with the yellow, black and white jars!

The morning that I was making this card, I got up from my craft desk for a coffee break.  I started to smell something from the kitchen and ran back down to see smoke pouring out of the back of my Ottlite.  Who knew cardmaking could be hazardous?  Anyway, I needed to take a picture of this card but my main picture-taking light had burned up.  (I am not experienced with natural light card photography as my cardmaking time tends to be before dawn!)  I find that most lights have a yellow or an orange cast, so you'll never guess what I found to take this picture?  This is lit by the flashlights on two iPhones!! It's not a nice clean white - but it's not too bad!!

There are so many fabulous mason jar stamps and dies out there - I hope to see you playing along. Of course, also remember that you definitely don't need to be literal.  There are so many ways to be inspired with this photo - the colors, the flowers, the theme - or even just the stripes in the background!  Have fun!


The scalloped frame and stitched frame are from Mama Elephant when they called it Femme Frames. They have since repackaged and I'm not sure which of the die sets is equivalent to the original.
