Jam packed with love....


Well the lovely June Pajama Party is over at Waltzingmouse stamps but the fun is continuing - at least at my house where we are celebrating our first day of SUMMER BREAK!!!  Yay!  Is there anything better than knowing you have days and days to do anything you want?!  My little one is over the moon with joy!!!  And I am enjoying the change in routine....no rushing to get people to and from school in between working etc.  Hooray for summertime!

I have a couple more "canning jar" themed cards to share with you using the lovely "Jar Fillers Jam Packed" stamps and dies from Waltzingmouse. It is a hard set for me to put down as I have a love for mason jars and all things homemade and yummy!

You have already seen this card if you viewed my Pajama Party post the other day....
 Here are the two additional cards that I made but just did not have time to finish before the PJ party was over.....
 This card features a lovely jar of "clover honey" which I hand wrote on the tag at the top of the jar.  A "glue" mistake led me to add a wee bit of "Diamond" stickles to the lid.


 A wee bit of chicken wire embossing adds to the country feel of the card.  And some "cookie dough" flower sequins from Paper Sweeties finish the card off nicely I think.  The centers of them were also dotted with stickles glitter glue. A nice touch of sparkle!



  This jar got started with the thought of some grape jelly that I was putting on my son's toast the other morning.  I don't often craft with the color purple (hmmm....don't know why?)  but I may do so more now as I really like how this turned out!  I did some two-tone inking on the jar and then used the same two colors of ink on the labels and tags. A little bit of Diamond stickles and sequins finished this card up nicely too.

By the way the outside white frame on this card is a leftover piece from a previous diecut.  I decided to use it to frame the gingham and kraft mats on the card.  I like this look and might try it again.

Well that is it for me today....thanks for taking a peek at my cards!
