Grateful Chalk Talk card in pistachio and black

I love all of the stamps in the Chalk Talk set. You can see a sentiment layered on top of another stamp from the set. Ornate without being too fussy.

I started with a Very Vanilla card base, and layered a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Modern Medley designer paper on top of that. I just wanted to highlight one color, so I chose Pistachio Pudding, adding a couple of pearls on the bigger stamped image. You can find this stamp set on page 12 of the annual catalog. All of the images may either be diecut with the coordinating framelits, or punched with circle and oval punches. Love it! BTW, I CASE'd this card from fellow SU! demo Julie Davison. Her card was white, brown and pink.

In our garage sale travels, my niece has gravitated toward old jars and bottles. She's got an entire shelving unit dedicated to mason jars at the Poulsbo Antique Mall - vintage, painted inside, painted outside and distressed, and filled with goodies like a couple in this photo with wooden spools. If they don't have glass lids with wire bales, they have the old zinc lids with the porcelain inserts. I think I've caught the bug. I have a great wire rack carrier that holds eight jars in my dining room, as well as more old jars on my kitchen shelves. The jars are filled with mini clothespins, Monopoly houses and hotels, buttons, poker chips, marbles,wooden spools, and Scrabble tiles (one old jar holds 300 tiles!).
Enjoy your day!
