Mason Jar and Flowers Handmade Card

Jar of Love Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

 Fall is such a lovely time of year.  The colors all seem bolder and brighter.  There's a crispness in the air that is invigorating.  It's time to pull out the hoodies and snuggle up on the porch with a cup of steaming hot chocolate.  It time to rake up the leaves and then run and jump in them.  Hint: It's best to do the latter activity with a child.  Their giggles  and laughter  make raking leaves an adventure.   With the help of the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars Framelits, I tried to capture a little of that bright, bold invigorating autumn feeling with a handmade card.

Jar of Love Card Making Tips

The flowers in the Jar of Love stamp step involves 2-step stamping.  Instead of using two different ink pads for each flower, I used one pad and stamped off the first layer and then stamped the second layer full strength.

I was sure how I was going to lay out this card, so I simply began stamping and cutting lots of flowers and a jar.  Then, I added a Stampin' dimensional to back of each before arranging my flowers.  After I was satisfied with the way they looked, I stuck them in place.  The new mini Dimensionals were perfect for the little Fresh Fig Flowers.

Copper Trim and Gold Mini Sequin Trim add just the right amount of shine.  It almost looks like a sun shiny autumn day.

Color Inspiration for today's card came from the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge-Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze with Metallics for dessert.  Find out more about this week's Color Challenge Here.

2017-2019 In Color Comparisons

Powder Pink

Hello Friends,

Are you ready for our annual In Color Comparisons?  The 2017-2019 Stampin' Up In Colors are Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist.  Let's start with the ladies.

Powder Pink is the square in the middle.  It's a soft peachy pink.  To the left is the soft and clear Pink Pirouette and to the right is the dusky Blushing Bride.

Berry Burst


Berry Burst, is it pink or is it purple?  You decide.  In the center is the new Berry Burst In Color.    I found this recipe for Berry Burst Sorbet Here.  It really does look remarkably like our Berry Burst.  To left is Melon Mambo a bright, youthful pink and to the right is Rich Razzleberry, a jazzy purple.

Berry Burst Sorbet

Fresh Fig

Fresh Fig is definitely a dusky purple with a touch of red.   To the left I compared it to Elegant Eggplant and to the right I compared it to Perfect Plum. 

Tranquil Tide

Tranquil Tide leans towards green or does it?  Pair it with blues and it looks almost blue.  To the left is Emerald Envy and to the right is Island Indigo. 

Lemon Lime Twist

Lemon Lime Twist is unlike any other color that we had before.  It's unique and fresh and fun!  On the green side I compared Lemon Lime Twist with our old favorite, Old Olive.  And on the yellow side, I compared it with Daffodil Delight.  But there really is no adequate comparison.  Lemon Lime Twist oozes with energy, hence the quirky little animals snipped from the Pick a Pattern Paper.

Fresh Florals

Did you notice the Fresh Florals Designer Series paper on each card?  It's 40 lovely sheets of In Color Designer Series Paper featuring Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.
