Jar of Flowers

My friend Louise came round to one of workshops last week bringing with her a card that she wasn't very pleased with claiming that it would probably end up in the bin. I exclaimed in horror, snatched it from her and  removed an item that definitely was NOT going in the bin and today I have used it on a card - take a look

The item in question is the acetate jar that my flowers are reposing in - here is a close up it's from the Perfectly Preserverd set

Did you notice the sentiment stamped onto the Petite Curly Label?

That's stamped using a new punch for my This & That bundle that arrived this morning. (More details about This & That - HERE)
The flowers (Fabulous Florets) were stamped and embossed using a white embossing powder before then being coloured with a marker pen and attached using a Dimensional.

Like the colours? I'm using the combo from a challenge here at The Cardiff Crafter


(Please do drop me an e-mail if you would like to order any of the above items or indeed any Stampin' Up product from the two current catalogues found in my side bar - all my details are above in the top tabs - thanks).

See you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. I am glad that it was upcycled, and into such a beautiful card! Love how you did those flowers - will have to give that a try.
