Be Organized





I created another for 



Amber Kemp-Gerstel

Her lovely card of bottles reminded me of my PTI pint jar  and I how I HAD TO HAVE IT.


I wanted to make sure and use it while I was inspired and thinking about it.








Karen's recent post reminded me of using the back of a stamp for a solid look, or in my case, for shadows and depth.


When I inked the back of the jar~the middle naturally wouldn't ink...so it left the perfect ring of color I wanted.



I organized words here, because

I felt like organizing something "different"



ANNNND, I am limited with stamps that would fit in this jar.


IN FACT, I misplaced the cutest little tack stamp~how frustrating!



SO, I'm not telling YOU to be organized...I'm telling ME~


just so we're clear. ;)

  8. So fun catching up on your blog ... love your back-of-the-stamp stamping, and yes, it's great that the middle didn't stamp. Never thought of canning words before, that's a great concept!
