Country Jars! - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning to Our Scrapping Cottage Fans!

Before I get started I wanted to give you a heads up about the sales we are have at our store.  We have a Collection of new release dies called Rise and Shine that are currently 25% off and they are just so much fun!  To see some card samples from the design team click here,  here and here!

Now onto the card for today! I had a stash of country looking paper so I used that as my inspiration for today's card!  Plus I have a friend from church who makes delicious jams and butters.  I was lucky enought to get one of each.  So I thought this would make a cute thank you card.

 1.  Using the Stitched Jar and Stitched Fruit die cut out the different elements.  I cut the jars out of vellum and silver paper for the lids.  The fruit is cut out of different colors of card stock
 2.  Use copics to give the jars a little shading
 3.  Glue the labels and lids to the jars
 4.  Using the labels as a base glue down the different fruits inside the jars on the back of the jars
 5.  Use a vanilla A2 card base and cut a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 piece of yellow card stock and a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of DP from the Studio Calico South of Market Collection.  Also cut a 5 x 1 1/2 strip of DP newsprint.
 6.  Glue all the pieces together and pop dot the jars to the card front
 7.  Cut out 3 Thanks and glue together and then add glossy accent to the top of Thanks
8.  Cut out a small rectangle using the Double Stitched Rectangle die.  Glue to the front and then glue down the word Thanks

Here is my card for the hop!
I decided to make a gate fold card for our hop!  To make this card I needed to use my Misti to make the mirror image of the little dragon!  And it worked perfectly!!!
Designer Steps:
 1.  I used a red rubber plain stamp to create the base for the ink.  And I have a link to a video that will help you with this method!
2.  I inked the stamp up several time to press the black ink onto the red rubber
3.  After I got enough ink onto the red rubber base I pressed the white card stock onto the image

4.  Next I flipped the paper and stamped the image again to get the opposite facing dragon

 5.  I used the scallop Pink and Main die to cut out the opening on the front of the gate fold after I had glued down the DP from the Celebrate paper pad

 6.  I stamped the images using the Fired Up stamp set and colored with copics: Y13, 19 - RV10, 13, 21 - V12, 15, 17.  I cut out the images with the coordinating dies.

 7.  Stamp the sentiment using the Fired Up stamp set and cut apart then layer onto purple card stock

  2. Cut a piece of yellow printed DP from the Honey Bloom paper collection 3 3/4 x 5 and glue to the navy DP
  3. Stamp the flowers using the Blooms stamp set.  I used a masking technique and then a scallop die to cut out
