Jar of Love for Beginner, Casual & Avid Crafters

Jar of Love Stampin' Up!

Oh Jar of Love, it's so sad to see you go. You are a stamp set for beginner card makers, the casual crafters, and avid crafters. 

Today and tomorrow, I will be giving a fond farewell to the beautiful Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars dies, because, if you haven't heard, both the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday dies are on the 2019 Stampin' Up! Retirement List.


Jar of Love Stampin' Up!

Are you new to card making?  Even a brand new stamper could make this cute card in minutes with the Jar of Love stamp set, pre-cut Note Cards, and Envelopes and a few inks.  I stamped the jar with Smoky Slate Ink.  Then, I stamped "Life feels empty without you" using a Gorgeous Grape ink pad.  To finish up, I stamped 3 hearts with Calypso Coral Ink.

Are you a casual craft?  Do you like to craft whenever the mood strikes you, but you would rather the project not be too complicated?  Try this card.  I randomly stamped 3 images from the Jar of Love stamp set with Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay, and Gorgeous Grape inks.  Then, I embossed the whole thing with my Ruffled embossing folder.  You could skip this part if you would rather not fuss with embossing.  To finish up, I tied a bow with my Whisper White Polka-Dot Tulle.

Avid Crafters, this Jar of Love Shaker Card is for you.  This card made me really sad to say good-bye to my Jar of Love stamp set and everyday jar dies.  In case you didn't hear, both the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Dies are on the Stampin' Up! Retirement List which means that are available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or May 31, 2019, whichever comes first.

Shaker Card Tips and Tricks

First, I stamp and watercolored my jar twice Bermuda Bay ink.  Then, I used 2 dies from the Everyday Jars dies to cut a jar with a window.  I then cut the jar two more times.  First, from a piece of shimmery white card stock watercolored with Bermuda Bay Ink and then from a Window Sheet.  

Then, I glued the window sheet to the back of the window jar and applied Sticky foam stripes around the rim of my jar.  I then filled the center with sequins and closed the back with my watercolored jar.

Since this is a fond farewell, I didn't hold back.  I stamped flowers and leaves and bows to my heart's content using Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Power Pink, and Pear Pizzazz inks.

Expectant Mother Cards

Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up!

Hello Friend,

There's just something sweet about Expectant Mother cards and I love the pregnant mama stamp in the Wonderful Moments stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  We love to send baby cards, but why not send a handmade card before the birth of the baby?  We are expecting a new grandson in June, so this card will be mailed out to my sweet daughter-in-law, Bethany.

Pregnant Mama Card Tips

Everything is white except for a few accents to highlight the pregnant mama.

The added texture from the Ruffled Embossing Folder and the stitched rectangle bring the white to life.

Hint:  When coloring the mama, leave just a teeny bit of white to highlight her baby belly.

 

Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up!

Most of today's card supplies will be carrying over to the new Stampin' Up! Catalog, but the Ruffled Embossing Folder and the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon are on the Stampin' Up! 2019 Retirement List and will only be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  Want to make this card?   For your convenience, I've listed all of today's cards supplies at the bottom of this post.

Color Throwdown

Thanks to Color Throwdown for today's playful color combination of orange, yellow and blue.  For accents, I used Calypso Coral and Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.  Night of Navy is my feature color.  I colored her dress Night of Navy and, just for fun, I added a bit of Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon.
