Could this be pink lemonade or watermelon juice? Either way, it looks refreshing. This is yet another project done with the Mason Atlas Jar die set – I really need to put it away but it’s so fun to use! For this one, I just used the die and colored the diecut. The inspiration came directly from my new toy in the office – an ice maker.
For coloring, I started at the bottom and tried to focus on the various shapes and colors. I colored a little at a time and sometime changing between the gray and pink if I had one spot figured out over another. Once that was done, my confidence increased and I was able to do the rest rather quickly. The lemon was actually the fun part.
This is a work in progress photo with the inspiration photo in the background.
I didn’t think there was much to this card so for added measure, I mounted the jar on a Wobble Action spring. This is the largest piece I’ve had on a wobble so it was surprising how much it actually wobbled.

I absolutely love homemade strawberry jam. I usually make the no-freezer kind because we go through it so fast. It’s a cherished childhood memory so whenever I make it, I usually share it with my family too. A bit on the chunky side is best.
The idea started with the fabric and the Mason Atlas Jar die set. When I saw it, I thought of the jam and then the rest of it came together naturally. I colored the jar red with darker shadows on the edges. Then I added the chunks and then the seeds. The highlight was added last but I wish I had planned that beforehand because adding the white after wasn’t as bright.
From the die set, I cut out the jar, lid and tag. I took the fabric and draped it around the lid and taped it down. I then placed that on the jar with foam tape and then added twine and the tag.

How about a tall cup of chilled lemonade? This was one of those projects that pulled me away from the middle of another project just to see how the idea would work. It all started with the Mason Atlas Jar die set and some frosty ice cubes.
These jar shaker cards are easy and fun to make with the Mason Atlas Jar die set. For this project I used a paper straw and cut it in half down the shaft. When putting it in, I cut a part of the foam out of the top part to stick it in. Then I filled in the gap with smaller foam so there were no holes in the foam wall. The shaker elements are large enough that I didn’t have to worry too much.
I was inspired by Anita‘s recent card for the scalloped border and layered stitched edge. Thanks!

One great set from Whimsy Stamps to coordinate with the
Mason Atlas Jar die set are the Baby Sea Creatures. So cute!! These adorable creatures work well in the larger Mason Jar rubber stamp too and it’s so much fun to play around with. I used a few other things and made this interactive card.
My objective was to create an interactive die with a pull tab and saw that the Atlas Jar would be perfect to hold that element between the layers of the lid and the jar. I think there would be a way to make this a window jar with a clear sheet but I needed to tackle one thing at a time.
I haven’t done many interactive cards so this was awkward and slow going for me. I started with the center elements then tried to plan around and behind it as I went. Yes, there were a few oopsies and I had to disassemble and try again. However, in the end it worked out and made for a fun card. Now the seahorse can bob around in the jar.

There is a new coordinating die that was released that goes along with the
Atlas Jar clear stamp set and I couldn’t wait to use them both together. It’s called the Mason Atlas Jar die set and includes enough elements to use them in a variety of ways. For my project today, I created a window shaker card. And the theme? Well, it’s a long story…
We all know we’re stuck home due to the COVID-19 and that toilet paper is in high demand so I piggy backed off of that theme. Second, my youngest daughter worked on black-out poetry and I thought it would be interesting to do some too. So I grabbed my scrap dictionary and ripped out the page that defined toilet paper. I was ready to begin!
Once I had my poem complete, I drew some toilet paper to add as shaker elements. I was also lucky enough to have some grape Fimo clay slices which was perfect! The rest of the card came together very quickly and I added the unicorn and sentiment from the Polka Dot Pals Mason set.
My poem says: “Personal toilet paper scented with a magnetic variety of eastern grapes.” Sounds like the kind of toilet paper I want to use! LOL
Here’s the poem that my daughter did. It says: “Sasha blinked and lost letter were all Sasha could see. Strange hero blew in the air danced with trolls.”

If you’ve been following my work then you’ve probably seen this colored image before. When I colored it, I wasn’t in the capacity to make any cards so it hung on my wall until now. I finally brought it down and put it to use. For this project, I used
Polka Dot Pals Imogen and had her sitting in the Mason Jar.
The Mason Jar is so fun to use and put things inside especially this larger one which allows for characters and all sorts of things to be included.
