Mason Jar Joy

And there are a little less than two more days left until Christmas! Am I ready… nope! I got a few more things accomplished yesterday before I headed into Manhattan for a bit to see Isabella. It was a very rainy and damp day here yesterday and looks to be the same today, but it’s still nice and warm! Heather picked me up from the Hicksville Station with some Wendy’s and we ran over to Target to pick up some odds and ends. I stopped back home for a few minutes before heading over to Heather’s for Thirsty Tuesday! We had to do it early this week because Thursday is Christmas Eve! A good time was had by all as usual! I finished my card that I was working on when I got home and then was too tired so off to bed. Apparently I was really tired because I woke up late today!

The card for today is a simple shaker! I started off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. On a piece of Solar White 80lb I stamped some images from the Hero Arts Winter Scene Photopolymer Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Cloudy Sky, Green Leaf, Khaki and Fog Ink on a piece of Solar White 80lb. To create the shaker I cut out the Hero Arts Large Mason Jar from a piece of Cherry Cobbler and heat embossed the sentiment from the Hero Arts Joy to the World Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. To the back I adhered a piece of Acetate and then a layer of Foam Tape. Some Martha Stewart Chunky Glitter is added on top of the image and then I lined it up and adhered the two piece together. A strip of Recollections Sliver Smooth Glitter Paper is adhered to the base and then the shaker panel is adhered next to that. A pretty quick and simple shaker to make but still a fun card to give! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thanks very much for visiting and have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

  1. Such a cute card today, Justin. I love the scene in the mason jar and the silver strip on the side, plus the embossed sentiment. Just beautiful. Have a great day.

  2. Good Morning Justin:

    What a beautiful scene you have created to brighten my morning! I just love this shaker card. I smiled because I made a similar scene in a real canning jar as a gift for a friend in Florida using small plastic deer. I used a small piece of Styrofoam glued to the bottom of the jar to anchor the deer. I liked it so much that I’m going to have to make one for myself. LOL

    I will be away for the holiday and am hoping that I will be able to figure out how to use my tablet so that I can see my emails while I’m gone but there is no guarantee for me that I can make it work however it never hurts to give it a try right?

    Have yourself a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2016. Love and Hugs, XO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thank you! That stamp set is one of my favorites! That sounds like a fun real shaker that you made!! The scene actually reminded me of what one might see by your house!
      I hope that you have a nice trip and you will be missed if your tablet doesn’t cooperate! Trying is the only way that we get learn new things!
      You have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year my friend!! Love to you and your family!! XOXO 🙂

  3. Justin, I am poring over the details of this card….I love it! Mason jars are one of my most favorite things and I collect every stamp and die of them that I can find. I would love to CASE this card if you don’t mind. The winter scene inside is just so perfect. Thanks for all the details you include with your posts. I wish you a wonderful Christmas!

    1. Thanks so much Rosanne! I too love Mason Jars and thought that this set was just perfect! Please do CASE the card!! I’m glad that you find my description helpful!! A very Happy Christmas to you too! 🙂

  4. Ah, back to your famous tablescape! I really love this shaker card. The mason jar and scene inside seems to make a lot of sense to me. Isn’t it great to be able to sleep late?! I hope you get all your Christmas tasks finished in time. I am setting the dining room table for Christmas Eve dinner and cooking up a storm today. We have both Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day madness at our house every year. It’s sooooo much work but a lot of fun and satisfaction. Have a most glorious Christmas – friends, family are so precious! Hugs and love, Nancy B

    1. LOL! Yes Nancy! And I can hear you when I go to set them up now! LOL! The card was fun and I don’t like to sleep late!! It messes up my day! LOL! Enjoy all of your friends and family one Christmas Eve and Christmas day!! The madness makes it even more fun!! Hugs to you!! 🙂

  5. Hi Justin,

    Merry Christmas! I love your blog and read it every day. I am having a problem seeing your pictures. I have an iPad. Have you changed something? New camera? Do you have any suggestions as what I can do to view your lovely cards?

    1. Hello Jamie!!
      Thank you for taking the time to visit me every day!! I’m glad that you come along! I haven’t changed anything on the blog and am sorry that you are having trouble seeing the pictures. I can see the pictures on my iPad. Are you visiting the site directly or clicking on the link in the email? Let me know so we can figure out what’s going on! 🙂

  6. Just beautiful! I love mason jars, and turning them into scenes has become so common. Our local florist and nursery have so manny of them. LOL I also get lost on interest looking at them. The top of your jar looks stamped? Is it, Hero arts set?

    1. Thank you Linda!! Yes, mason Jars are a favorite of mine too! The mason jar and all of the rest of the images inside are from the Hero Arts Winter Scene Set, one of my favorites!
