Incrediball Canning Jar Set

Hello fellow Junkies. Beth Norman here. Can you believe summer is behind us and we're into fall?  I hope our winter goes as quickly, that's for sure.

Since sunflowers are in season I thought it would be fitting to fill my IncrediBall Canning Jar Set full of sunflowers.  The sunflowers are a Cottage Cutz die that comes in three pieces.  I created four sunflowers and distressed them with SU inks.

My cute IncrediBall Canning Jar Set is an October release and can be purchased on sale until October 9th at 15% off.  Now that's a steal.  There is a coordinating stamp set called Incrediball Labels which are just darling.

I added a big black flourish in behind my layered dies and added corner dies and distressed them as well.

Have an incrediball day!

Oh Christmas Tree

Good morning Junkies!  Today I have a couple of projects to share with you using two of the brand new September Releases.

First up is a tag:

I stamped silver ink all over a white tag and then sprinkled Stampendous Chunky White embossing powder over the ink and heat set.  Since the ink I used was fast drying dye ink, only random sections were embossed (which is what I was aiming for).  Next I stamped Flourished Christmas Tree onto a piece of mixed media paper and cut it out.  I painted the swirls with Art Anthology Velvet in Shamrock and Desire and then went over it with Gold Metal Effects.  I then stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Winter Wonderland Sayings Set of 3 in Tomato Sauce ink and added it to my page.  Finally, I stamped out a few more of the stars and scattered them on the tag along with different snowflake embellishments and finished up with some red and green fiber.

I then decided to create a quick and fun Christmas ATC.  I stamped one of the trees from Christmas Trees Set of 6 in green ink and then fussy cut it out.  I added a piece of sticky foam to the back to "pop" it out and placed it on an ATC covered with Christmas-y paper.  A few foil stars, a couple of presents, some Christmas lights, and a fussy cut Merry Christmas 2 sentiment in Tomato Sauce ink and it was done.

I hope you enjoyed these two projects.  They were a lot of fun to make.
Until later..............
