You're So Sweet & Giveaway

Happy Friday & thanks for stopping by! :) I wanted to share a fun project I created using a cornstarch can. I got some fun goodies from Jacksonbelle Embellishments and reached for my NEW Bittersweet paper from Basic Grey. I LOVE this paper!! LOTS of pink & brown but LOTS of fun swirls & hearts too!

I covered the can with a pink piece of basil cardstock. The Sizzix top note die was used as a backing and layered using my rectangle Nestabilities from Cut At Home. At this point, I was not sure if I was going to add a sentiment or a fun image. Since this Happy Heart Day was still on my table, I reached for this set again! Last year I ordered this stamp set way to late so I never got to use it, I guess I am making up for it now! LOL
Do you need a watermark or do you like mine? Leave me a comment and you will be entered to win a custom watermark. I will announce the winner on Saturday, January 10th.
Have a wonderful weekend,

Hi Jennifer, what an adorable candle. I've been eyeing up the rectangular nesties, they're yummy aren't they. I LOVE your watermark and would be extremely happy if I was lucky enough to win one. Hugs, Denise x

Stacy said...

You are so creative! I was just debating on throwing away an Internatinal Coffee tin that I just emptied b4 coming to check my fav blogs. Now you have inspired me to keep it! This is just adorable, thank you for the inspiration!

Oh Jen this is sooo cute! The idea set my wheels turning, this would make a neat Teacher's gift that could turn into a students gift. Just give the can with the candies inside and for good behavior the teacher could give a treat.
I don't watermark, but would love to have one cutom made for me! LOL

A Stroke Above said...

I think the comment I just did was lost, so if you get two entries from me, please delete one..I did not say it was SAVED. Wow, does lightning strike twice. I was just sending you an email and then I checked your blog and you have offered a watermark as candy. I have been procrastinating about learning how to download photos of my cards to my blog. I was also talking to a friend about "coincidences" as I also mention in my blog. It is strange how life works that way sometimes. I love your work and maybe I will be lucky again..Linda Crowder

Priscilla said...

Another great project! Thanks for sharing! :o)

Viv said...

Wow Jennifer! What a transformation! It's beautiful. I love pink and brown and to see it on an altered item is a bonus!
I would give my eye teeth for a watermark, I hope I'm lucky.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs Viv xx

Hi, Jennifer! Hope I am not too late to enter your giveaway for a watermark and oh, my, Yes! I do need one and have been forgetting to get one. I absolutely love your mouse tin! I am so excited because I just ordered this set as I had wanted it very badly last year and could not get it. So, when I saw your beautiful creations just now, I am so happy I was able to get the set this year! Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity!! ~Amy S.~
