Stampers Anonymous "Flower Jar CMS297" Card

I was up at silly 'o clock again this morning.  I was feeling too hot to sleep, so decided to get up and make this card.

I decided to use a Stampers Anonymous stamp set, I've not used them for ages, opting for the red rubber cling set called "Flower Jar - CMS297".

I used two shades of Versafine Clair inks (Warm Breeze & Morning Mist), both stamped in second generation stampin as I didn't want hard solid lines for the glass jar.

Next I stamped the flower, using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" for the stem and "Summertime" for the flower head, again stamped in second generation stamping as I wanted the whole thing to look light and delicate.

I coloured the flower with Derwent Inktense Pencils, applied with a paint brush, I also extended the stem of the flower towards the base of the jar.

I used "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide ink and a 2B pencil to ground the jar.

Using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, I stamped the "Thinking of you" greeting, which is part of the Simon Says Stamp "Tiny Words" sentiment stamp set.

I then used "Lost Shadow" Distress Oxide ink, through the Funky Fossil "Micro Dots stencil" just around the main stamped area.  Finally adding some touches of white gel pen as highlights.


  1. Your stamping definitely looks delicate,no hard lines anywhere,absolutely beautiful

  2. Lightly done but still makes an impact Sam, and love the way you have used the green and that peachy shade to stamp the flower and extending the stem has worked well. I also love the micro dots stencilling in that soft grey in the background...perfect! x
