Perfectly Preserved Orchard Harvest

I have been playing with some new toys - the Perfectly Preserved stamp set, Orchard Harvest paper and Cannery Set framelits.   So much fun!   I found lots of cute ideas from other demonstrators - and made them in my own way.

 This was probably the simplest one - just a row of jars stamped on some Whisper White card stock, then mounted on Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight.  A simple basic note card.

 This one is a string of lights for a backyard party or camping trip.  The jar were cut from Whisper White and then sponged using Melon Mambo, Pacific Point and Lucky Limeade.

 A jar of lemonade  - stamped then sponged very lightly with Daffodil Delight.  The apple and pear stamps are also from the set.

A closeup of the lemonade. I used the jar stamp and just inked up the bottom curves with a marker, stamped it off on scrap paper then stamped the upside down on my paper. Stamped the jar over that. Very simple and the faint lines give the lemonade the proper detail to look three dimensional.
 This is one I am going to use at a club workshop this weekend.   The jar is stamped on Very Vanilla and cut out using the die.   Flowers are stamping in the jar using More Mustard.  Additional flowers are stamped in Pacific Point and Cajun Craze then cut out with the die.   Strips of the designer series paper are placed in the background.

My idea for a get well card - Heard you caught a bug ......  well let it go :-)    The bugs are made using the leaf stamp and adding a head and little antennae.

Another bug one - lightning bugs in a jar.  Remember when.....  those were the days.  We caught lightning bugs and put them in the freezer  because we wanted to send them in to the local TV station for medical research.  Not sure that was even legitimate.  I do know that fluoroscein  (sp?) is used in some laboratory testing and they may have used the fluorescent chemicals from the bugs before there was a synthetic product.  Outs never made it anywhere except the trash I 'm sure.
