Late Summer Flowers

 August is a busy time of year. Even in the midst of a pandemic we are fortunate to live in an area where flowers & vegetables grow in abundance. The sunflowers in my area are spectacular! My neighbours are preserving tomatoes with basil & garlic (I can smell it!) so the approach of autumn is in the air. The warm temperatures have made for spectacular late summer gardens so I was inspired to play with the Jar of Flowers Bundle from the Annual catalogue.



This card uses the stamp set only, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink & coloured with Blends markers. I limited the colours choosing to highlight the Crushed Curry on the Moonlight Mist embossed mat. The Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder gives the subtle look of burlap to the jar of late August blooms. The matte finish of the Moonlight Mist ribbon is the perfect embellishment.

This next card uses the matching Jar Punch as well as a mini Mason Jar to create a shaker card that mimics a water-filled jar of flowers.



Once again I used some Misty Moonlight cardstock - a lovely shade of blue that reminds me of soft denim. I guess this card takes me back to my flower-child days! (Hey, it was the 60's).

This stamp set includes bouquets of Spring, Summer & early Autumn flowers & comes with the original Jar Punch. What fun to create cards for all-season celebrations. It's lovely done in pastels as well. Here's some more inspiration.

Enjoy this late summer harvest & create some cards to save the memory.

Be sure to comment with any questions or concerns & let me know how you are enjoying this fun bundle. 

Cheers,
Arlene
