Elemental Inspiration

Hello Everyone.
Sorry for this late post.  I am not sure where this week is going and I have found it very difficult to get time to blog as my little boy does not like me to leave his side at the moment.
Anyway its elemental inspiration time over at Daring Cardmakers and this week we have a wonderful picture to spark your creativity after the New Year.  All of us at Daring Cardmakers hope you had a lovely Christmas break and we are hoping you will join us this year with our fabulous dares.
Here is this weeks picture.
Remember to use at least 3 elements from the image.
Here is how I was inspired.
The elements I picked were the colours, jar, wood grain and the foliage.

I used my favourite stamp set from Stampin Up called jar of love and I turned the jar into a shaker coffee jar.
The cup, coffee beans and sentiment are from a stamp set Paper Sweeties called Coffee, Yes Please.
I then used a wood grain embossing folder also from Stampin Up and added a little bit of white embossing powder to it just to give it that white washed looked.
Hope you can stop by the Design Team Blogs for more lovely inspiration
Enjoy your week.


  1. Lovely card, Dawn. And I love it that you can "fill" this jar with whatever you need ... very clever (and very tempted to buy one of these jar stamps myself).

  2. Fab card Dawn - fits the brief really well. Really clever use of the jar! Shabneez xxx
