Papertrey Playhouse Same Tag Challenge

Krista is hosting the latest challenge over at the Papertrey Playhouse, and I was finally able to play along! For this challenge, she mailed each of us a bunch of goodies including a tag that we were to use on our project. We could use any of the extras that we wanted, or none at all, just so long as our project included the tag. What a fabulous idea!!! I decided to sit on this for a while mainly because I might be the only person in our group that doesn't have any of the Jar series stamps. I wondered for quite sometime how I would get the jar that is stamped off the tag that Krista made for us to fit into the overall scheme of a card when I didn't have anything to fill it with. But then it came to me and I created this...

The heart image is from Warm Happiness, Too. I decided not to fill my jar with anything, just left it empty. I added the doily and border that I received from Krista to the left of the tag. I then used the Mat Stack 2 die cut that came in my package, stamped it with an image and sentiment from the Mat Stack 2 stamp set, added a few buttons tied with twine, then added it to the card with some dimensional adhesive. I finally broke out some Pinefeather for this card too...used it for the card base and the ribbon in the tag. I was playing off the green fabric tape on the tag.

Overall I am pretty pleased with how this turned out. It is different from any other card I've it was lots of fun to put together!

I will be back tomorrow with my latest layout created based on Shimelle's latest Sketch of the Week. I will also have a few days worth of Learn Something New Every Day to share as well. Until then, thanks for stopping by!!


  1. love the pinefeather with the tag. and hadn't thought of using the warm happiness (which I have) with the jars but i love it!

  2. I love your take on the challenge, Deb! You demonstrated great creativity by not using any jar filler images! I think it was very clever to include that heart from Warm Happiness Too.

  3. Those colors go fabulously together! Great project!
