Flowery Greetings

By | July 12, 2016

A new catalog always makes my heart beat faster—and when I think of all the new products, even more new ideas start floating around in my head!

When buying stamps, I don’t make decisions depending on what kind of stamp images I already have in my cabinet—even if there are ten floral stamp sets. (You can never have enough of those!) And I usually don’t buy stamp sets because of their main images, either; it’s the small, unimposing stamps that make it to my must-have list!

The Jar of Love Stamp Set (item 141587) is a good example. I immediately fell in love with all the beautiful little flowers and I knew I had to have them.

For my first card, I used Whisper White Thick Cardstock (item 140272) for my card base; then I used a sewing machine to attach a piece of Dapper Denim Cardstock (item 141414) and Soft Sky Cardstock (item 131203). I cut the heart in the background using the Big Shot (item 113439) and the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies (item 141489).

The die-cut word is from the same Thinlits set. I stamped “Is in the air” from the coordinating Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set (item 141591) in Soft Suede ink (item 126978). To create a poppy, I three-step stamped the largest flower in Calypso Coral (item 126983), Watermelon Wonder (item 138323), and Basic Gray ink (item 140932).

The best thing about this stamp set is that there is a coordinating Framelits set–Everyday Jars (item 141490); it saves you the trouble of cutting out the images by hand. To stamp the medium flowers, I used Peekaboo Peach (item 141398) and Tangerine Tango ink (item 126946). I also used Calypso Coral ink to stamp the mini flowers and Old Olive ink (item 126953) for the stems.

Finally, I embellished the card with some Burlap Ribbon (item 141487) and 2016–2018 In Color Enamel Shapes (item 141410).

To create the second card, I used a Soft Sky card base and the leftover flowers from the previous card. I stamped the medium flowers in Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango ink and the stems in Old Olive ink on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

Then I adhered the die-cut flowers to the stamped images using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (item 110755) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 104430). Before adding the Burlap Ribbon, I wrapped a double length of Linen Thread (item 104199) around the card.

I hope I was able to inspire you by showcasing my favorite stamp set from the current catalog!
