IBS May Release: Mason Summer Jar

Welcome to DAY 1 of Inspired by Stamping May Release. 

I am so excited about this months new release.
These new stamps are amazing and so fresh in so many ways. 
The first stamp set we are showcasing today is: Mason Summer Jar
This is one F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S stamp set. When I saw the sample set, I was so excited.
It is complete with fruit elements, stems, leaves and a jar!! 
So being that the Strawberry Festival is just two weeks away and the streets are covered in advertising banners, this was a clear sign of what was going to be the focus of my card/creation. 
I found myself wanting to try something new and pulled out my little canvas bags. 
I stamped one strawberry on the bag and was pleased with the results, so continued with a few more. 
I was so excited and extremely happy with my little strawberry bags.  The details of the strawberries were till clearly visible...YEAH!!!
I also used a stamp tag from the Creative Tags stamp set, to create the tag on the bag. 
It really did add the finish touch. :) 
My card was created using another one of our new stamps being release this week as well. 
I stamped the strawberries with white dye ink on kraft cardstock.  I then stamped over it again, with my red ink and just a bit off centered, so that the white would show more.  Love the results. 

So there you have it, my examples showcasing Mason Summer Jar stamp set. 
I hope you enjoyed my samples and will visit the rest of design team, to check out their amazing projects.
