Jar of Love

Jar of Love is a very versatile bundle is retiring as of tomorrow!  It is retiring as a bundle (save 10%) but will be returning in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue a la carte.  So if this has been on your wish list, you want to get it by tomorrow for the 10% savings!

Today’s card is a sweet clean and simple one using the smallest jar as a vase to hold the flowers.


The card base is Whisper White cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  I used the Oval Layering Framelits to cut out the new Powder Pink layer.  I cut out a scalloped oval also from the Oval Layering Framelits and stamped the jar in Smoky Slate and cut it out with the framelit.  I stamped the two small flowers in So Saffron and used Daffodil Delight to add the accent pieces.  This is a single stamp with the two flowers and the framelit cuts out the two flowers separately – very neat!  The larger flower is stamped in Powder Pink and overstamped with the detail stamp using Rich Razzleberry.  The leaf stems are stamped with Pear Pizzaz and cut out with the co-ordinating framelits.

I stamped the water in Pool Party and assembled the leaves and flowers over it.  The sentiment is also from the set stamped in Smoky Slate and punched out with a retired Oval punch.

ONLY TODAY AND TOMORROW for the current catalogue items – don’t miss out on your favourites and shop my online store HERE.

Thanks for stopping by on a much cooler day today after several scorching hot days!  Happy stamping!

Also co-ordinating with this bundle is the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack and today’s card uses all three of the items.

The card base is Dapper Denim cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at  5 1/2″.  I trimmed down one of the sheets of the Color Theory DSP Paper Stack to 3″ x 4 1/2″ and adhered it to a Basic Black mat cut 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″.

On the DSP I used a mask to sponge the sun with Daffodil Delight classic ink.  The birds are from High Tide stamped with Black Archival ink.  I used the Season Layers thinlits to cut the chair as well as the cool drink of lemonade.  The sentiment is also from Colorful Seasons.  I love the peaceful image of the card.

Lovely Friends Stamp Set and Lovely Laurels Thinlits

A preview of a fantastic bundle coming on June 1 is the Lovely Friends and Lovely Laurels Thinlits.  Do you like pop-ups?   Then you will love this bundle!

Here’s today’s card.

I started with a Whisper White base cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  The Lemon Lime Twist layer is cut 5″ x 3 3/4″ and the Whisper White focal layer is cut 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″.  I inked up the large sentiment with Lemon Lime Twist classic ink and then tapped the Tranquil Tide classic ink stamp pad on an angle over the sentiment randomly.

The flowers are stamped in Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight and the leaves are cut out with one of the thinlits from the Lovely Laurels Thinlits in Old Olive.  I added some Wink of Stella over the flowers and finished them with a pearl.

The Lovely Laurels Thinlits have these pop up pieces to make a laurel wreath and banners.  I cut out the laurel with Lemon Lime Twist card stock and the banner with Tranquil Tide card stock.  There is also another sentiment banner thinlit and after stamping the sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist card stock using Tranquil Tide classic ink, I ran it through the Big Shot.

Here’s a closer view of the inside of the card.The Lovely Friends bundle, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide card stock and classic ink pads will all be available on June 1.   But before it starts, don’t forget to the retiring products will be leaving on May 31!

Birthday Wishes for Mojo Monday

It’s been a while that I participated in a Mojo Monday sketch challenge and today’s card uses this week’s sketch.  I used the Birthday Delivery bundle and Birthday Memories DSP (all available June 1).  I love all the colorful images in the DSP, they are so adorable!

The base card stock is Blushing Bride with a layer of Sweet Sugarplum.  I stamped the cupcake image from a retired stamp set, Party Wishes.  The cupcake is inked with Sweet Sugarplum classic ink and stamped in second generation across the card stock.

I cut a piece of Blushing Bride 2 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ to layer over the Crumb Cake card stock cut on a diagonal.  It is 2″ wide.  I snipped out a piece of the DSP with the girl image and cut it out with the Oval Layers Framelits.  It is popped up on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then added some Sweet Sugarplum 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes on the Blushing Bride panel.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamp Sets:  Party Wishes (retired)
  • Paper:  Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, Crumb Cake, Birthday Memories DSP (available June 1)
  • Ink:  Sweet Sugarplum
  • Accessories:  Birthday Friends Framelits (available June 1 in a bundle with the Birthday Delivery stamp set), Oval Layering Framelits, 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Oh So Succulent Retiring

So sad that Oh So Succulent is retiring and will be gone after May 31!

Today’s card using the bundle gives you a sneak peek of a couple of the new In Colors and some retiring product.    Powder Pink and Fresh Fig are the new In Colors  – aren’t they beautiful?


I started with a Fresh Fig card base cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  I stamped two of the flower images in Powder Pink and Mint Macaron and rolled them out with the coordinating framelits.  The Fresh Fig flower was rolled out with the 3 different sizes of the flower and assembled with Tombow.  The trailing leaves were cut with Mint Macaron and the sprigs were stamped with Garden Green classic ink on Garden Green card stock and rolled out with the coordinating framelits.

I brought out the Window Box framelits and cut the flower box using Crumb Cake card stock.  All the floral pieces and box were assembled on a square Powder Pink piece of card stock cut out with the Layering Squares Framelits.  This was layered onto a scallop edge Layering Squares Framlits.

I had a strip of the retiring Blooms and Bliss DSP on my desk and it looked perfect for the card and adhered it to the card front.  I used the Vanilla side of the Doily to lay behind the focal piece.  I added dimensionals to the focal piece and adhered to the card front.  The Fresh Fig centre flower was popped up with a dimensional.

I brushed the leaves of the flowers with Wink of Stella to give them some shimmer and completed them with pearls to the centre of each flower.

The sentiment is also from Oh So Succulent and is stamped using Fresh Fig classic ink on Powder Pink card stock and punched out with the Classic Label punch and adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

When we were in San Diego earlier this month for OnStage and sight seeing at the Hotel del Coronado, there were succulents all over and I captured this beauty in a photo.

SUPPLIES for the card:

  • Stamp Set:  Oh So Succulent
  • Paper:  Fresh Fig, Powder Pink (available June 1), Mint Macaron (retiring May 31), Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Blooms and Bliss DSP (retiring May 31)

Sneak Peek Daisy Delight

One of the perks of attending OnStage is being able to preorder some of the new products from the upcoming Annual Catalogue.  This is a delightful set with a co-ordinating daisy punch!

And did I mention that there is a beautiful package of Designers Series Paper that co-ordinates with the stamp set.   I love it – so beautiful.

The primary card stock is Calypso Coral cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  I cut a piece of the DSP 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ and adhered it to a piece of Peek-a-Boo Peach cut 3 3/4″ x 5 “.  I stamped the daisy onto Whisper White card stock, one using Peek-a-Boo Peach classic ink and the other using So Saffron classic ink.  I then punched them out with the Daisy punch.  I stamped the centre of the Peach daisy with So Saffron.  I added a glue dot on the back the Peach daisy and placed it on top of the So Saffron daisy,  rotating  it to create a fuller effect, before pressing it keep it in place.  One of the new Gold Faceted Gems (they come in Clear too!) was placed in the centre of the daisy.

I brushed each petal with the Wink of Stella to add a bit of shine and then used the bone folder to gently shape the petals backwards.   I cut a piece of the DSP 3/8″ x 3 5/8” (its the reverse side of the DSP panel) and adhered it to the front of the panel.  I added the daisy to the right hand side of the panel with a dimensional.

The sentiment is stamped with Calypso Coral classic ink.  The completed panel is adhered to the front of the card using dimensionals.

Supplies:

  • Stamp Set:  Daisy Delight (in new AC)
  • Paper:  Calypso Coral, Peek-a-Boo Peach, Whisper White, Delightful Daisy DSP (in new AC)
