JAR OF LOVE

Its cold and miserable here in the UK again, the wind is blowing and it feels like winter not August.  So I've been playing with Jar of Love again and the Serene Scenery, again!!!.... to make a lovely beach scene to make me feel like its summer.








I've used Bermuda Bay card stock as the base covered in some of our silver which has been embossed with the dots embossing folder.  As per Watercooler's sketch I've turned my card around and added some of the wonderful Serene Scenery DSP.  The Jar tag has been cut with the framelits from the Jar of Love series.  I cut the larger jar first in Whisper White and then another in Bermuda Bay and inlaid the smaller label to cut inside the Bermuda Bay.  A wash of Pool Party on the white jar gave us the water and I cut out two of the leaves with the framelits for the fronds for the little fish to hide in.  Dazzling Diamonds was added then I cut a piece of Window Sheet and put it all together.

The top of the jar was embossed with Silver Embossing powder and I added two of our lovely ribbons in Bermuda Bay and Silver.  I added some Basic Rhinestones to the bottom.

The label was punched out with the Decorative Label punch.  The wording is also from the Jar of Love set - I covered over the For from the FOR YOU with a bit of sellotape.  Remember though to remove the ink that will stick to the tape - which I didn't do the first time!!  A little embossed silver heart from the same set finished off the label.

This card is going into hubby's lunch box tomorrow - he's had a hard time healthwise at the moment and yesterday at work fell over and hurt his back on a steel pole.  Bless him he was back at work this morning but he's tool old to be falling over.  I'd love to see his face and the rest of the guys when he sees this in his lunch box! lol!



I'm entering my little fish into some challenges.  Watercooler Wednesday as they have given us a sketch to work with.

Fiona, you've outdone yourself! What a lovely card! There is so much detail to be enjoyed. I love the way you've used a layer of embossed Silver Foil and then heat embossed both the lid of the jar and the little heart with Silver embossing powder. The Dazzling Detail, too, adds so much sparkle. It seems as if the sun if catching the water and adding diamonds. And what a sweet move, to add this lovely card to your husband's lunch box. I'm certain it made him feel 100% better. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Fiona it looks like you had a lot of fun creating this card with Jar of Love. Such a great design to bring you out of your bad weather "doesn't feel like summer" funk. Sorry to hear your hubby has had a fall, that's "jarring" to say the least so this card would have been perfect tucked away in his lunch pail for him and all his mates to see! It's so nice having you join us at the Watercooler Wednesday challenges Fiona, hope you'll continue to play along with your great creations.

I hope your husband's back is feeling better, Fiona! I'm sure he appreciated you putting this card into his lunch :) It's a gorgeous card - so many details with layering the jar, and adding 'seaweed' for the fish! Thanks for playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday challenge. ~Deborah
