One for Summer and One for Fall

Hello crafters!  I finally brought home the Just Mason Around stamp set from the Greetery!  Here's my first play with it.

supplies: white and Mint cardstock, Just Mason Around and Fleur Impressions stamp sets, Floral pinks and Green Meadow mini inks, Sunny Studio Frilly Frames Lattice die

I'm thrilled with the results of the 3-step stamping on both the jar and the flowers - I need to buy stock in Betsy's company!

When I was taking my picture I noticed that I liked the idea of a woodgrain background, so my next card brought that into the mix, and I switched the colors to autumnal ones.

supplies: white, kraft, and various oranges, yellows/golds, and greens cardstock, a Doodlebug yellow gingham dp,  Just Mason Around set, Sweet Dreams mini inks, Spellbinders April Small D-o-Mleaves from Tim Holtz Funky Foliage dies, Tim Holtz Lumber embossing folder, swiped with a dark brown ink

The other neat thing about these canning jars is that you can use the "Fresh for You" on them as your sentiment, which I've done on both of these cards.  If necessary, a small banner or tag can be added when it's ready to be used.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Am I the only one who's getting excited for fall?  I even heard a rumor that that most famous coffee flavor should be making its appearance at the end of this month! Whoo-hoo!!
