Jar of Flowers Thanks Card

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

I slept in this morning for a change!
I guess you can say that I am becoming an early bird since the last few months I am up when Shawn gets up for work. I noticed it's staying darker a bit longer in the mornings...

Yesterday I played at my stamp table after lunch.
It was a good day for creating!
I usually stamp in the afternoons when my soap opera's are on but the last several months they have been repeats because of the Covid stuff so I haven't been turning the tv on.
I pulled out several new stamp sets and just played and colored.
Jar of Flowers hasn't seen much ink time so I made a Thank You card for on my card rack.

This time I used the sunflowers favorite!
Again, when I started I stamped my flower image on a post it note and fussy cut just the bottom portion that would hang out over the top of my jar.
This is to keep any of the jar lines from being stamped over top my flowers.

I stamped my flower image first on my cardstock then placed my post it note mask over top of them.
Then I stamped my jar image and lines show thru to my flowers once my mask was taken off! I was pleased about that!

Then I pulled out a bunch of Stampin Blends and colored my image.
My Thanks tag was diecut from the Ornate Frames Dies from the Halloween products from last year. The Ornate Frames Dies carried over into our new catalog. They are so pretty and I find myself using them quite a bit!

Card Details:

Stamps: Jar of Flowers, Here's A Card (sentiment)
Ink: Memento Black, Misty Moonlight, Stampin Blends (both Balmy Blue, both Just Jade, both Misty Moonlight, both Cinnamon Cider, Light Daffodil Delight, Dark Mango Melody)

Hard to tell in my photo but I did add Wink of Stella to my sunflower petals.
I love the shimmer it gives them!

My thoughts today...

This is such a pretty card with some great masking of those flowers! I love the pretty paper along with the great coloring of those flowers. I only watch (or should I say USED to watch) one soapie, but I don't even bother turning the tv on anymore, because they interrupt it on a daily basis half way through with updates from the virus. It's gotten so old hearing this stuff on a daily basis, there's no need to even have a tv anymore.
