Are you a roller coaster person?!

Happy Friday to you!!  Are you a roller coaster person?!  Have you ever been really hesitant to try something because you were concerned it was too complicated or too scary?!  I must admit that I have been really hesitant about using the stamp set Jar of Love because I thought it was going to be too complicated.  I finally challenged myself to take it out today and play with it...guess what?!!  I LOOOOOOOVE it!!  It is an absolutely amazing set!!  So many fun little details you can create.  So many options!  I kept my card simple today, but am tickled with the way it turned out! Here's what I came up with:

I stamped the background with the Hardwood stamp.  That stamps just screams country to me and I thought it would compliment the jars (which also scream country!) well.  I added a torn piece of Crumb Cake to the edge to add some visual interest.

I toyed with the whole stem/glass thing and decided to combine die cuts and stamping to make them look like they are resting inside the jar. I am really, really loving this stamp set!  

I double stamped the pink flowers in Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo and stamped the smaller ones in Sweet Sugarplum by stamping off once and then stamping and then stamping the centers in full strength.   So much fun!!

Here are the supplies I used to make this card:

If you haven't played with this set yet I would highly recommend it!  It was a little scary to me at first, but I think this set is going to wind up being a go to set for me! I am in absolute love with it!!  I am really glad that I conquered my fear and gave it a try.  I won't, however, be riding any roller coasters any time soon! ;)  Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

Your card turned out so cute! I really like that there is a stamp for color within the jar. That hardwood background is da bomb!

Very pretty. I like the way you set the flower stems in the vase. The colors are very pretty.
