Love, Birthdays & Chicken Soup - RCC89


Welcome to another challenge from the Ribbon Carousel Blog! This months RCC Challenge theme is Love, Birthdays & Chicken Soup (be sure to add anything that comes on a spool to your project), continue reading below on how you can play along and enter to win a set of 10 spools filled with your choice of beautiful seam binding, baker's twine or May Arts ribbon! Inspiration for the challenge is posted every Tuesday Ribbon Carousel Blog! 

To created my card I used stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs along with pattern paper from Bo Bunny.


I stamped the canning jar from the Blue Ribbon Winner stamp set in Black ink on White card stock, then die cut the image using Our Daily Bread Designs Canning Jars Die.  Using an x-acto knife, I cut out the oval portion in the lid, so that I could add the flowers.  To stamp the flowers, I masked the canning jar with Eclipse Tape, then added the bottom portion of the flowers from the Lavender stamp set using a SAMJ for placement.  I restamped the flowers on White card stock, cut them out, colored them with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Markers and added them to the canning jar with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs Perfect Gift stamp set, stamped in Black on White card stock, cut with the Word Window punch and sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  To embellish I added a doily, buttons and Twine.

Lisa, your card is absolutely lovely! I have a thing for mason jars, doilies, buttons, and twine...elements that give me a warm and cozy feeling :)

Beautifully designed!

This is so pretty, Lisa - the jar looks amazing, and I love the paper layers and doily in the background... and the twine too, of course!
