Unity Stamp Jars of Love - Indie Chic Style: SCRAPS challenge

  Happy December!  It's my turn up on the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog today.  This weekend I did a little reorganizing of my 6x6 pads in my craft room (which has doubled in number since I started shopping at the Pumpkin Spice online store; where 6x6 pads are always $4.20 or less!)

  Sometimes I find inspiration just by looking through each collection.  When I get too many scraps in a collection, I store what is left of the pad and the coordinating paper bits in a Ziploc quart-size bags.  They fit perfectly!  While re-organizing my pads (partially by season, mostly by manufacturer), I noticed this Indie Chic pad was the thinnest of them all.  In fact there are only 3 sheets out of the original 24 that have not been cut into!  I thought this would be the perfect collection to use for this week's challenge at Shop Pumpkin Spice: SCRAPS.

  No full sheet of 6x6 was harmed in the creation of this card.  Even my yellow card base and the chocolate chip card stock layers were from scraps of 8 1/2 x 11 sheets.

  I stamped the jar, then used my Xyron to adhere it to two scraps of the brown card stock, then I fussy cut the jar.  I find that my Xyron gives good coverage when I apply a heavy layer of glossy accents and my papers do not warp.  I also used my Xyron for the two panels where I used my grandma's sewing machine; the adhesive holds those pesky loose threads neatly behind.

Supplies:  (links embedded)
stamps:  Unity Stamp Company "Jars of Love" (mason jar); My Pink Stamper "Love-alicious" (sentiment)
ink:  Texas Chocolate hybrid ink
paper:  My Mind's Eye "Indie Chic: Nutmeg"; Stampin' Up! Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip card stock
buttons:  My Mind's Eye Indie Chic: Saffron "Dreams"
glossy accents

I hope you can use up some SCRAPS and play along in our scraps challenge this week on the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog.

Happy Tuesday!

You know how much I love mason jars...this is awesome June. I really need to use Glossy Accents more, but I think it is because I'm so impatient for it to dry. Your card is so very much fun!
