Shopping Our Stash 190 - Out of the Jar

Happy Happy Tuesday!! This week the challenge theme at SHOPPING OUR STASH is "Out of the Jar." 

For this challenge the SOS crew would like you to use anything that came out of a jar (flower soft, glitter, perfect pearls, embossing powder) or a jar image or make something using a Jar.

Here's the card I made for the challenge. I stamped the jar image twice, once on white cardstock and watercoloured it, then again on acetate to layer over top. As much as I dislike fussy cutting, I cut out the jar (twice) and the nasty little green bug.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Black ink (Stazon)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Frayed Burlap, Broken China and Mowed Lawn distress inks (Tim Holtz)
  • Healthy Vibes stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Jar stamp (Inkadinkado)
  • Acetate sheets (Staples)
  • Sharpie
  • Paper piercer and mat (SU)
  • Water brush (Tim Holtz)
  • Silver sequins (Joann's)
Visit the SOS BLOG for all the details on the challenge and be sure to show my teammies some crafty love while you are there!!

I might not mind having the creeping throat crud if the germs were this cute :) The fussy cutting is absolutely perfect!
