Jar of Love for Mother’s Day

Can you believe it’s May already?!  And – it’s the first of the month which means its time for another Di’s Country INKers blog hop.  Perhaps you’ve arrived from seeing Mary’s beautiful project – what did you think? 

This month we are featuring projects for Mother’s Day.  My card is a ‘case’ (Copy and Share Everything) from Dawn Olchefske.  What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than with a lovely flower arrangement and the Jar of Love bundle fit the bill.

I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base, layered with Whisper White.  My large flowers are stamped in Daffodil Delight and accented with Crushed Curry centers.  The smaller flowers were stamped off once with Rose Red, then accented with full strength Rose Red.  Leaves and ferns were stamped with Pear Pizzazz, and the jar was done in Smokey Slate.  A little bit of die-cutting with the matching Everyday Jars Framelits set and I was ready to assemble with glue dots and dimensionals.  Easy peasy! We’re going to be making this little lovely in my upcoming Mother’s Day card class (hint-hint)

I was thrilled to see that the Jar of Love set and coordinating framelits were not on the retiring list, so that means they will still be available in the upcoming Annual Catalog!  However, they will no longer be offered as a bundle with a 10% discount as they are right now.  You have until May 31st to take advantage of the savings. Oh!  And I almost forgot to mention that the Tags and Labels Die set IS on the retiring list.  It’s a very handy set, and I’ll be sad to see it go…

Off you go now to see what Kathya has to delight you with.   A list of all the stops on our hop is below, just in case you get lost. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope you have a great rest of your week!

Red, White, and Blue Blog Hop

July 2016 Blog Hop Button Resized

It’s the first of the month and that means a Di’s Country INKers blog hop.  This month we are featuring the color combo of (naturally) Red, White, and Blue!  A big thank you to Di for sending you over for a visit.  I loved the project she had to show today – how about you?

When I first saw the Jar of Love stamp set and matching framelits, I knew it was going to jump into my shopping cart.  It has all sorts of things to fill the jars with; flowers, lightening bugs, hearts, greenery and even a goldfish!  So cute!  For my card, I went with the flowers in, of course, red, white, and blue.beelinestamping.com 7-1-16a

I started with a Real Red card base and gave it a layer of DSP from the Floral Boutique pack.  A Whisper White tag made with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch was the foundation of the focal piece.  The jar was stamped in Night of Navy classic ink and cut out with a framelit.  I added several flowers that were stamped in Real Red, and Night of Navy and cut them out with the matching framelits.  The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy and accented with a Real Red heart then clear embossed over it to give it a bit of shine and dimension.  The card was finished with one of the new Delicate White Doilies and a bit of Washi Tape from the Floral Boutique set. A few rhinestones and a Night of Navy bow were added as bling.

Off you go to see what Kathya has in store for you.  I hope you have a very happy and safe 4th of July holiday.  And if you catch some lightening bugs, better stamp some jars to put them in!
