Waltzingmouse Stamps June PJ Party - Challenge 1: Can It / Pickle It.

Waltzingmouse Stamps are hosting their June Pajama party at the moment, with four challenges to take part in. You can check out all the details over on the WMS blog here.

I have chosen to make a shaker card for the first challenge "Can It / Pickle It". I used the WMS large Chevron background stamp, the jar stamp from "Candy Jar Christmas Fillers", the lid and sentiment stamps from "Jar Fillers - Jam Packed" and some of the lovely new WMS "Peaches and Dream" sequin shaker mix.

I started with a 5" square peach coloured card blank and added a layer of cream / gold card before adding a square of peach coloured paper stamped with the chevron pattern using PTI Melon Berry ink. The sentiment was stamped onto a small stitched fishtail banner cut with a Die-namics die and added with foam tape. I used some of the cream / gold card to stamp two jars, cut an aperture in one and added a layer of acetate to make the window. I added some of the shaker mix and sandwiched the two jars together using clear foam tape. The jar lid cover was cut from patterned paper and I added a little bakers twine to embellish. The photo doesn't really do it justice as it looks much prettier in real life!

Thanks for looking,
