Join Dawn McVey today as she shares how she translated some inspiration from her amber bottle collection into an element on a card design.

“I’ve been loving all the amber bottles I’ve been seeing in home decor everywhere for Fall, lately, so I thought I’d be fun to create some little amber bottles for my paper-crafted projects!  I hope you’ll join me at my blog today, for tips on how I created these little gems….it’s easier than you might think and I’m guessing you might already have the supplies on hand to create a similar project at your house, too!”

    Beautiful cards Dawn! I love the fall theme with the bottles. I have used acetate over a die cut of Just the Jar: Pint and placed it over stamped flowers in a get well card. Same idea and it gives the jar a glassy look. By the way, I’m wondering when the dies for the Wicked Elixir stamp set will be available? I’ve had them on my notification list for months and REALLY would like them! Thanks for in the inspiration.
