HSS 137

Hi stampers!  It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  This week is a fun theme challenge.  This one reminds me a bit of my granny!  She was always canning yummy stuff!

Fun huh?  And we have the perfect set for this challenge!!!!!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Perfectly preserved
Paper:  Very vanilla, sahara sand, perfect plum, watercolor
Ink:  Stazon, perfect plum, bashful blue
Accessories:  Cannery framelits, bitty banner framelits, lacy brocade embossing folder, perfect plum taffeta ribbon, delicate doily sizzlits, basic pearls

It was super easy to make a blue jar!  I just used watercolor paper and the cannery framelits!  And I love those flowers, they remind me of alums.  Our neighbor used to have some right out my bedroom window when I was growing up...lots of memories in this challenge!  I don't use a lot of perfect plum (or purple for that matter) but I thought the flowers would look really pretty in plum.  I finally pulled out my perfect plum ribbon too!  I just had to have it when I saw the picture of it in the catalog!  So pretty...and then I haven't used it, ha!  I also used the lacy brocade embossing folder from the Holiday catalog.  I resisted it for a while,...but alas, I had to have it *sigh*.

Now go on over and see what everyone else came up with and play along!

Happy stamping!


  1. I love your color combo on this one! Of course, I don't have the jar set. Or that doily! BOO! Good thing I'm placing an order today. :)

  2. Your flowers are so pretty! I love that color, too, and you're right - the Lacy Brocade embossing folder is a must have. It looks great on your card. :) erika

  3. Very Pretty!!! Love the color combo- so pretty!! Love the flowers- Just Beautiful!!!

  4. I like your flowers SOOOOOOO much!! I love how you pulled the blue and purple together, you are setting the bar high- never a disappointment!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
