Atlas Jar Die from Whimsy Stamps

Take a break and do what makes you happy! We all need a break from our every day life and this card came about with that type of theme. I started with the Slimline Cityscape Die and tried to think of a fun way to use it – that’s when the Atlas Mason Jar Die came in mind to create a city scene inside. But one thing led to another and I ended up using seven different die sets, three stamps and one stencil to create this mega slimline scene. Read below for more details on how I create it featuring Pigs Can Fly Too as the star piglet in my story…

The city in a jar was created using the Atlas Mason Jar Die and Slimline Cityscape Die. I cut all the dies out in white cardstock so I could color them individually instead of searching for that many different colors to coordinate. Sometimes grabbing a marker or brush is quicker and it allows me to add more details such as the coloring the details on the jar’s lid or adding color to the ribbon/twine.
After my jar was created, I started to work on the background. Since I had a city in a jar theme, I wanted the outside to be the opposite. That’s when I grabbed the Stitched Border Trio Die, Slimline Woodland Cottage Die and Slimline Clouds Die to create the background scene. I added color throughout such as stenciling the background with the Sun Rays Stencil and coloring the foreground elements.
I love this Atlas Mason Jar Die! This could have been a great card to use lots of foam tape and really build up the layers but I decided to keep it simple and no more than two. On the first level, I raised the jar and BREAK lettering. On the second level, I raised the lid, bow and tag on the jar, then also the pig and the AWAY letting above that.
