oh so dreamy...

Have you ever looked at paper or stamps
and want to hug it to pieces?

That is how I feel about the NEW Fresh Baked Kit.

You can find all the details about what is included HERE.  
There are some amazing antiqued papers by Cosmo Cricket, a fabulous tea themed stamp set by Sweet Stamp Shop and LOTS of accents and ribbons.  
All ready to be used by you for lots of cards or great projects.

I think I squealed a little over that mason jar.  FYI, it really was the first stamp I used from the set.  Total cuteness.  I immediately imagined that lid being removed and hundreds of butterflies floating out.  Super dreamy.  Like you are letting your dreams fly free to come true.  One of the Tiny Text stickers included the perfect sentiment.

Here is a fun little tip on using patterned paper and stamps.  I wanted the jar to be paper pieced, but the lid to be solid so I could shade it with some markers.  I could have stamped it twice, but here is a one step trick.

The Cosmo Cricket 6x6 pads always have a strip of white at the top.  I stamped my jar so the lid would be on that strip and could easily be shaded.  Then, I trimmed it out and used some Copics to add a little shading.  Easy peasy.  

In order to have the jar open, 
I just trimmed off the top lid and glued it to the side.  
Now all my dreamy butterflies can be released.

Thanks for stopping by today,
I wish you a very dreamy Saturday.
