VC Rocks Blog Hop Anything Retired

Welcome to the first VC Rock Blog Hop of the season. We are celebrating 

15 years of FUN! VC stands for virtual convention. It was created for

people who love Stampin'Up! products, but couldn't attend the yearly SU convention. 

The group is for demo's and anyone who likes SU. 

The hop this weekend is all about retired SU products. There wasn't any

limit on how retired the items were so I dug deep into my retired stash

and came out with a stamp set called Jar of Fun. This set dates back to 1994. 

I think I pulled it cause I have Sarah's wedding on my mind and her theme

for the wedding is sunflowers. Which is perfect for a Fall wedding. 

I stamped the flowers and stems first with memento black ink. 

Then I colored the flowers with: So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, 

and Wild Wasabi stamp'n write markers. 

The mason jar was inked with Jet Black StazOn ink then stamped on cardstock

weight velum. After fussy cutting out the mason jar it was glued over the stems using

Tombo liquid glue. This glue is perfect for adhering velum as it dries clear. 

The greeting is from this years sale-a-bration set Lotus Blossom.
I finished off the card with a bow from the in color accessory pack which
was another sale-a-bration item. 
The completed panel was layered on Hello Honey cardstock. 
I'm thinking I may be making these up for Sarah's thank you cards. It 
is a lot of coloring but it goes pretty fast with the markers. 
Don't forget to checkout the VC Rocks official blog to see all the 
other great things that the group has made.

An oldie but a goodie! Nicely done. Live the use of the vellum on the jar.
