Daisy Jar

I was quite surprised to read last week that the rubber stamp company called Cornish Heritage Farms is going to be selling the business. I surely do hope they find a buyer who'll maintain the quality and beauty of stamps and excellent customer service that the current owners have always maintained.

It was just by chance that I made this card prior to reading about the impending for sale sign being put up. This daisy jar stamp, a Cornish Heritage Farm stamp, is the perfect summertime stamp for many occasions.

For this card I pulled out my twinkling H2O's that have not had their little lids removed from them in ages. There is very little coloring needed on this simple card. Next I filled in the centers of the daisys with teeny-tiny micro beads. The daisy petals are covered with a bit of yellow Flower Soft product. Finally, before assembling the card I used my cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder for the background and the corner designs are also using cuttlebug corner dies for cutting. A little jute tied in a bow around the vase and the card is complete.

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer (or winter if you are living down under).




  1. Oh, Jennifer, this is so pretty. I actually said that out loud when I opened your blog this morning. Love the softness of the flowers with the rough jute twine. You always use just the right touches. CHF is such a unique company. I hope we don't lose them.

  3. Hi Jennifer - thanks for your good wishes for Amy - how are your trio? Have just been catching up with your blog, totally breathless at your creativity - wonderful things!! Particularly liked the bowl covers - just the thing for temporarily covering bowls during long lazy afternoons in the gazebo - the sort where you drink ... nibble .... chat... nibble a bit more .... etc etc Hx

  4. I love the texture on this. Sandi
