Jelly Beans in a Jar {Spring Sampler}

I've obviously been playing with my Spring Sampler set. :)  This card uses the jelly bean stamp in the set, and I'm telling you, every single stamp in this set is ADORABLE.  So much cuteness in this set!

While I used a couple of sets of Framelits to cut out some of the elements on this card, there was also some hand cutting involved.  I wanted the jelly beans to have some dimension, so I cut several individual jelly beans out and popped them up with little pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals.  And since the weather has just been gray, gray, gray, I wanted lots of bright colors on this card.  I easily achieved this by coloring each jelly bean a different color using my markers right on the rubber (there are three jelly beans on the stamp.)

Are you a fan of jelly beans?  I am, but I'm super-picky.  I do NOT like the spice ones.   A couple of years ago I found some in the bulk section of the grocery store that are naturally colored.  Not only were the soft colors beautiful, they were the best jelly beans I've ever had.  And of course then the store stopped carrying them. :( Obviously, I should just stick with chocolate.
