I'm a Guest Designer at My Craft Spot!

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner.
I'm so glad you stopped by today because I can't wait to share my project with you!  My sweet friend, Kimberly, from My Craft Spot recently asked me to be a Guest Designer on her blog.  I love the beautiful stamps Kimberly designs and was thrilled that she asked me.

I decided to work with her sweet "Feel Better Soon" stamp set for my project.....

When I first saw the fun "Chocolate Prescription" sentiment, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  So, I headed off to Hobby Lobby and found just what I was looking for - the perfect glass jar!  And, I found it, this jar reminds me of the type you see in a Doctor's office.

* I cut out a label I found at the Silhouette Online Store and stamped my sentiment onto the top layer using Versamark ink in "Vintage Sepia".  I inked up the edges of both layers, glued them together then glued the finished label to the center of my jar.
* I added some beautiful "Milk Chocolate" Crinkle Ribbon (also available at My Craft Spot) to the top of my jar and glued it into place. I topped that off with a big bow with a pink gem in the center.
* For the finishing touch to my jar, I added some yummy chocolate covered almonds!

* For my card, I created a 5 X 5 inch ivory card base and inked up the edges.
* Next, I added a chocolate brown layers and 9 squares of pretty printed paper - all inked up with the Vintage Sepia ink.
* The lovely flower is from the Silhouette Online Store and all the petals and leaves were inked up also. I added a dark brown fabric covered brad to the center.
* My sentiment is also from Kimberly's "Wishing You Well" stamp set.  I stamped it onto ivory cardstock and inked up the edges. Next, I covered it with Glossy Accents and coarse, crystal glitter for a bit of sparkle.
* For the final touch, I added another brad to the end of my sentiment banner and adhered it to my card.
