IB96 Pretty Jars

Happy Thursday, peeps....Happy Halloween, happy last day of October, happy whatever!  It's weirdly warm and rainy today but's gonna feel a wee bit cooler, looking forward to it!  Today is another Inspired By challenge day, and when I saw Laurel's inspiration photo, my heart swooned!  In fact, I went out and bought supplies to make some of my very own, I was so inspired.  Haven't made them yet, but I have everything I need when I do, LOL!  So anyway, here we go:

And here is her prompt!  Aren't they pretty?

I changed banks recently and I wanted to write a little thank you note to the gals who helped me set everything up....they were sweet and charming and personable!!  And I thought this would be a fun seasonal card for them.  It uses (again) the Reverse Confetti Cotton and Thistles set, which I just used a few days ago, but this time I left off the puff paint!  I stamped everything in Crumb Cake and Soft Sky, and used Blends to color in my images:

The leaf and pumpkin are from an older Paper Pumpkin set; the images are just the perfect size for small thing like this!  I added a burlap ribbon and another little cotton boll at the bottom, and mounted it on a piece of Soft Sky and French Flea Market DSP from Julie Nutting.  The thick white card base took the Pine Planks embossing folder so well, too!  It really stands up to the "pressure"!  I followed the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday:

And for my sentiment, I used a diecut from Well Written, cut from Early Espresso cardstock!

I wanted to share some of the pretty cards I got recently:

So pretty, LeAnne! Love your take on that jar, such soft and pretty colors, too. Very elegant. Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!

Nicely done, LeAnne! The woodgrain background really does well to show off you jar. I like how you matched the panel color to the ink color for your stamping. Thank you for sharing with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna
