When I first made this card for Cleverprints I used just sunflower flower colours but I realised that this would look so good done in yellows and blues to show support for Ukraine.
Here is the stamp set and dies I used.
I started by stamping the flower twice. The first one is the base and used as a guide where to place the petals.
For the centre of the flower I cut out the centre of the flower and coloured in blue ribbon and mustard seed. I then die cut the leaf to make the petals four of each colour.
I used jell type glue to place the petals around the base and added the centre piece to the top.
Here is my original, so you can see this could be done in different colours depending on the event.
Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy your Cleverprints goodies.

So today I am doing a step by step decorating a jar. I am using the new In the Garden Stamps designed by Jane Royston for Cleverprints LTD. A fab set of stamps I loved working with.
Step1 stamp out three or four flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black on to plain rice paper and colour with alcohol markers.
Step 2 cut out leaving a small white line around the flowers.
Step 3 attach to jar using PVA glue this can be watered down a little if it is too thick, using a paint brush.
To finish off I have add some flower foam die cut flowers and stamen to the top or you could add paper flowers or anything you have in your stash!! Also I added a battery candle.
My final picture is the jar in this blog post and a different one in a slightly smaller jar.
