Spring Jar of Love for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Spring, ah, spring!  A favorite time of year and our theme for this month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop.  So glad you have joined us today.  I used the Jar of Love Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you.  

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Love for Spring Cardiology by Jari

I started by tearing the edges of a panel of Whisper White card stock and then sponged the edges lightly with Crumb Cake ink and a Sponge Dauber.  Next, the water from Jar of Love was stamped onto a panel of Whisper White after I stamped it off once on a scrap piece of paper.  I just wanted the water to barely show.  The jar was stamped in Smoky Slate right over the water, then I cut it out using the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies.

I stamped several of the flower images from Jar of Love, using colors I think of in spring.  This is a two step stamp set, meaning for some of the images, you stamp twice.  I decided to use Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Wild Wasabi, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake in the arrangement.  To achieve the two color look in the flowers, I stamped off the base of the flower before actually stamping it onto Whisper White, then came back with the second stamp full strength. The stems and leaves were stamped full strength.

Next, I adhered the jar onto the torn panel.   Then, I  stamped some stems in the water and a couple of greenery sprigs right onto the torn panel just above the jar top so they would peek out of the arrangement.  All of the flower heads and leaves were die cut and I began to put the spring arrangement together using Liquid Glue and Dimensionals.   I had some stray strands of Burlap Ribbon that had been pulled apart, so I put them together and tied a bow for the top of the jar.

I left the inside fairly plain for writing and added 3 left over small flowers to the right bottom with Liquid Glue.  

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! products used to create my spring card and card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love Fall Treat Box

I have a fun little treat box to share with you today.  Since it is October 1st, I thought it fitting to begin the month with something more fall-ish.  Even though I have seen very little fall weather, I know someone reading this is probably experiencing it!  And, I hope enjoying it!  

This month is just the beginning of a season of treat giving, too.  All of the store aisles are packed with Halloween candies, then there will be all of the fall flavors of Thanksgiving and of course, all of the cookies, candies, and homemade deliciousness of Christmas .  So, a little treat box to hold all of these goodies is in order, or maybe three!

 

treat box

 

This treat box is so easy to make!  I used Kraft card stock for the actual box.  The details on the size and score lines are at the end of the post.  I used the Acorny Thank You stamp set for the acorns.  They are stamped in Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.  I punched them out with the Acorn Builder Punch.  The leaves are stamped with the Vintage Leaves stamp set.  I used Soft Suede ink on Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie card stock and die cut them with the Leaflets Framelits.

 

treat box

 

I pulled out the largest jar from Jar of Love and stamped it in Soft Suede ink onto my Kraft card stock, then die cut the center with Everyday Jars Framelits.  The jar lid was also stamped with Soft Suede and die cut.  I popped the lid onto the treat box with dimensionals, then added the acorn/leaf bundle with some glue dots.  A length of Gold Baker’s Twine was tied into a bow and also added with a glue dot.

Do you remember the last time you received a card in the mail? In a sea of junk mail and bills, a card is a simple thing that really stands out to the person who receives it. Sending a card is a small gesture that shows just how much you care about that special someone in your life. With World Card Making Day coming up on October 1, celebrate by making and sending a handmade card to someone who could use a little recognition, love, or just a boost (which is anyone, really!).
