Friendship Jar Fall Fillers

So I mentioned the other day how I didn't have a favorite set from the August Papertrey Ink release, but I do actually have a favorite card! :) It is this one, made with the fun new Friendship Jar Fall Fillers. This set works in conjunction with Friendship Jar and the coordinating dies. Way too much fun!

To create the focal image, I stamped the jar first, then the cute ghost image several times onto Plum Pudding cardstock that I had diecut. To color the ghost, I used a white Prismacolor pencil. You can get some fun looks by using the pencil on darker cardstock! It's a great technique.

I couldn't find a patterned paper that I wanted to use once I had the jar completed, so I decided to make my own. We stampers are a resourceful bunch, aren't we? ;) I pulled out Distressed Stripes and created a matching plaid background using Plum Pudding and Simply Chartruese inks. I finished it all off with some Topnotch Twill, Stickles, machine stitching and lots of inked edges. I'm not sure if it is the cute ghosts or the kickin' color combination, but boy, do I love this card! I hope you like it, too!

Have a great day! Be well.
