Waltzingmouse June Pajama Party

Are you playing along at the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party?  Claire has lots of fun challenges for you this month as well as some blog candy up for grabs. Here's the challenges for this month and the projects I made..

Challenge 1 - Can it/Pickle it Make a project involving canning jars/jam jars - there are a number of WMS sets that involve jars - and don't forget you don't have to use WMS jars! Any sort of Jar - Kilner, Jam jar, sweetie Jar...see what you have. If you don't have any jar stamps, why not dress up, alter and re-purpose a real jar.  
I used the Waltzingmouse largest snowflake die as my doily for my sweet little jam jar!  I used a pigment ink for all the solid stamps and got excellent coverage! 

Challenge 2 - mmm....Coffee colour challenge  

Challenge 3 - Old Pajamas 
Use one of your older Waltzingouse Stamps sets to create a project for this challenge! We'll be digging out our USA 1776,  stamp sets for this one, here are some of our previous USA 1776 projects for inspiration.

The starburst background was created cutting strips of pattern papers 4" x 2" and then cutting them on a diagonal corner to corner.  Next I assembled them on a piece of paper with all the points to the center.

Challenge 4 - Bedtime Story sketch 

I substituted the pennants with Fireworks for a festive 4th of July card. To give the wood veneer stars a little more shine I colored them with a Krylon 18 Kt. Gold Leaf Pen.

There's still time to play along with the Bedtime story!  You can get all the details here!

Wow! Amazing cards! I love your little jar and the stick pin and bow detail are wonderful with it! I also love that starburst background you created on the second, and those fantastic fireworks!
