It's true that as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I we be ordering the latest and the greatest crafting supplies from the upcoming Holiday Catalog in August (Demonstrator Preorder), so that I can share projects with you before its launch in September. But for this week, I've been pulling out some oldies but goodies from my Stamping Stash. Today's card was made with the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars Dies. I have to admit, every time I use this stamp set, I love the results.
We're in the throws of summer here, so that makes me think of fireflies lighting up the evening sky. I colored them with my Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blends. Then, I stuffed my mason jar to overflowing with flowers stamped in Poppy Parade, Blueberry Bushel, Gorgeous Grape. Hint: For the Poppy Parade flowers, I stamped off or used 1/2 stretch Poppy Parade ink for the bottom layer. I used the same stamping technique for the Pool Party water in my jar.
For added texture I embossed my card base with the Basket Weave Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder. I stamped my sentiment 3 times on 3 different card stock colors, then cut out the words that I wanted in each color. Hint: Just about everything is popped up with Mini Stampin' Dimensions. The mini dimensions are a great size for all the tiny elements.
By the Way, just so there is no miss understanding. I did a Craft Room Organization Tour a few weeks ago and my Craft Room was pristine condition. But that doesn't mean that my desk to look like this when I am creating. But the nice thing is that when I'm done creating, everything has a place and can be quickly put away.
Have a fabulous day,
