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.  


 

Now, I hope you’ll hop on over to see what Mary has created for our Spring themed Blog Hop today!

Christmas Pines for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

The Happy Stampers are back again, and I am posting a Christmas card using the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies. This is a wonderful set to bundle and save 10%.  There are 22 photopolymer stamps and 13 dies.  This bundle does not disappoint!

And, if you follow us every week, you know it is a sketch challenge this week:

Have you started your Christmas cards yet?  I am so happy that I’ve been making them all along so that there is not a mad rush as we get closer to the holiday!  If you haven’t ordered the Christmas Pines bundle, you are really missing out.  I am in love with the pine cone die.  Doesn’t it look cool with this Copper Foil?

 

Christmas

 

The sentiment is also in the Christmas Pines stamp set.  I colored it with my Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Markers before stamping it onto the Whisper White.  Notice I also used the new Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This paper can also be sponged to highlight the raised images.  

Here is how I finished the inside:

 

Christmas

I stamped the pine bough stamp in Emerald Envy, then placed a couple of the bough die cuts from the Pretty Pines Thinlets dies on top.  I used liquid glue to adhere them. 

Stampin’ Up! products used and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
