Friendship, Jelly Beans, and Great Impressions!

Good morning - happy weekend to you all!


It's Saturday, and my day to post at the Great Impressions Stamps blog.
This week found me creating with bright, fun colors,
and I thought that these delicious stamps would be perfect
with the pink, green, and white color scheme.

for my card.  Aren't they adorable?  That jar looks so real!  Makes my mouth
water for the yummy little jelly beans inside!


This was pretty easy to do!
The card base was created, and scored. 
A white panel was cut, and adhered to the card base. 
Then, a white circle and a green circle were created with some circle dies.
The white circle was dry embossed with a big 'dotty' folder.
The sweet pink paper -it was edged with an old border die.
The sentiment was stamped on white, and cut out into the fishtail shape.
The jelly bean jars were stamped on white, colored with markers and fussy cut.
The top jar is adhered directly to the card front.
The pink strip is mounted with very thin dimensional foam.
The jar on the left was adhered with a thicker dimensional foam. 

This one just made me smile - how about you?
