SIP #10 Inspiration Challenge

Hello all!  I hope you've been having a wonderful week so far!  It's still crazy in the world of Import.  Hopefully it will slow down by Mid-September.  Until then, I'll just keep taking it a day at a time!  Well since it is Tuesday,  it is time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!

This week's Inspiration Photo is so versatile.  You can use "home" as the theme, or go with the colors, or the feel of the picture.  I decided to do something with those awesome mason jars!  I knew that I had a Sizzix Jar die and my first thought was to clear emboss a mason jar die cut for a card with flowers in it but when I pulled out the die it was too large for a card front so I decided to use the die to make a jar shaped card.  Fun idea and one I think I'll use again. 
It looked too plain with just the tag on the top but I didn't want to stamp on the jar itself so I added a belly band that will slide on and off.  I used Soft Sky cardstock for my jar/card body, Smoky Slate cardstock for the jar lid and the belly band.   I tucked a little piece of the Stampin' Up Tea Lace Doily under the lid and attached some Linen Thread to hold on the cute little general store tag.  The flower was made with the Cherry on Top Cotton Paper in Watermelon Wonder.  I punched several layers with the Pansy Punch and the Petite Petals Punch and scrunched it up and then used my Paper Piercer to punch a hole in them and inserted an Antique Brad in the center and then attached to the card with glue dots.  The Happy Birthday sentiment from Tag Talk was stamped in Watermelon Wonder Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and punched out with the coordinating Label Bracket Punch.  I attached it to the belly band with dimensionals.
