Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love stamp set and die bundle

 

Hi friends, Here we are back for another fun Sunday blog hop with the CTC crew. Our crew has grown with the welcome addition of talented new members, Kelly, Krissy and Deb. Don’t forget you can play along each week too! All the details for the linky challenge for the whole month of July are found here.  

 


 

This week we’re turning to pages 66-91 of the annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue for inspiration – the Everyday Occasions section. Thankfully we’ll be returning to this section again in a few weeks because there are sooo many gorgeous and inspirational projects on these page.

 

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love bundle

This is the one that caught my eye this week…

I fell in love with the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love bundle of photopolymer stamps and dies as soon as I saw it the catalogue.

In my card I swapped the fish for a flower and changed the layout slightly to allow for the stem of the flower, and ended up with this:

The Jar of Love stamp set is cute on its own, but paired with the matching Everyday Jars  dies it’s totally adorable and very user-friendly.

I also added some flecks of gold Wink of Stella on my card, die cut vellum for a few extra layers on the flower, and added some tags stamped in Soft Suede onto the watercolour paper.

The other thing that really struck me with the Jar of Love bundle is that it will go with so many other stamp sets! Imagine all the cute things you could pop inside the jar.

 

Colours

Inks used were Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride. Cardstock was Whisper White, Sahara Sand (thin strip for the stem, hand cut), Kraft, a circle of Bermuda Bay and watercolour paper.

 

For more Everyday Occasions inspiration, you can continue hopping through the loop to Liz’s lovely project. And if you get lost along the way, just check back in at the Case-ing The Catty website.

    Simone, this is so lovely, I love the water colouring in the background, and especially love the gold splotches, just adds that final touch.

    Thanks Debbie. The watercolouring was a little trickier than I was expecting, but it helped to give the watercolour paper a good splash of water before adding the ink.

    I love the jars too…. They are so cute. Just a lovely little flower to go with it, it looks so delicate! Nice work.

    Thanks Rose!

    I love the way you’ve replicated the layers with washi, circle and banner. The water colour background with splatters is lovely.

    Thank you Rachel

    I love your take on this card Simone! The sentiment is super cute as two little tags, and the Stella splatter is a great touch.

    I love the wash in the background too – it really makes your card sing – and this is a very beautiful card!! I love the Jars too – and I really think I’d love to CASE you!! Thank you for the inspiration!!

    Oh my, this is gorgeous. I’m looking forward to playing around with some more images from Jar of Love. Your CASE is beautiful – much rather a bouquet than a fishy stuck in the jar 🙂

    So lovely! *better than the original* Kelly x
