Karolyn - Blog Hop Crystal Clear

My project features the new set called Crystal Clear.  This set includes a mason jar, some vases, as well as some darling little pretties to use in conjunction with all of focal images.  Check out that ADORABLE little lightning bug!!  AACCKKKK!!!  Is he not so cute?!  I stamped the jar and lid from Crystal Clear and cut out the inside of the jar, leaving a slight border.  I adhered clear acetate to the inside so that it looks like a clear jar. Then I stamped the lightning bug inside the card, glittered his little “butt” and wings, and then stamped the “light rays” using one of the images from this month’s TAM set called Off the Charts.  The sentiment is from Smoocheroos!

We have a bonus giveaway for you.  Stop by the Paper Smooches blog for your chance to win a Scor Buddy!  You will find the details HERE.

That’s it for my PS share today.  I’ll be back in a bit to share this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge.  In the meantime, thanks so much for stopping by!  I so appreciate it!
