Trend Watch – Containers to Fill

I’ve always loved stamps and dies that offer the opportunity to fill them with any number of unique things. Today we’ll take a look at different shapes or containers that are just begging to be filled.

Sue used a jar stamp to create a place to put little valentine messages (look at the little envelopes!)

This card by JJ features a jar with the “Ball” label and some pretty butterflies flying out of it. I like how she overlapped the jar stamp on her sentiment.

Nichol’s card features the Lawn Fawn Bugs and Kisses set, which contains a cute jar (with holes in the lids, so the bugs can breathe of course!) and some fun varieties of bugs. These bugs are sending sweet “bugs” and kisses!

This card by Yukari is similar to Nichol’s, but features a different sentiment and the fireflies. I love the translucent material she used to create the effect of the fireflies appearing to be inside the jar.

This apothecary jar could contain any number of things. Miriam used little circles to look like little balls of candy that match the card.

Laura used the Gumball Machine Die from Simon Says Stamp to create her adorable gumball card. The bright colored gumballs are such a great touch!

Sarah’s card doesn’t have a container on it, but it caught my eye as a great way to create your own container to fill; whether that be with sequins as she did here, or with other shapes or stamps to fill areas.

Wouldn’t some of these jars be adorable filled with some wildflowers on stems? You could even hand-draw the stems into the jar from your favorite flower stamps. Hopefully this has inspired you to see what kind of “containers” you have in your stash to put to use!
