Jar of Love - Wreathe

Another card I saw on Pinterest by Louise Sharpe and had to make it.
So easy to make.  Die cut out a circle in the same colour as the background and then fill around it with flowers and stem to maintain the shape. Can apply this to making any wreathe card.

Jar of Love - Serene Scenery DSP Background

Paper from the Serene Scenery DSP made the perfect background for this bouquet of flowers.

Having lots of fun with the Jar of Love Stamp Set.  Saw a card by Jo Anne Hewins on Pinterest and had a go of making it.

Jar Of Love Bundle Tips

Wow! This bundle  consists of 37 photopolymer stamps and co-ordinates with the Everyday Jars Framelits and they have 17 dies. A lot of components.

I suggest sorting the stamps and identifying what they are.
For instance group together -

flowers (1 large, 2 joined two step stamps plus one other flower), flower stamen, flower stem, leaf stems (3 in all)

the bow with the band that stamps around the neck, string with bow

3 jars, jar handle, jar lid, hessian label, water band

fish, bee, heart,colour dot

phrases and sentiments

Now match the framelits to their stamps. Of course, not all stamps have matching framelits.  The framelit which looks like a jar is the framelit which cuts out the middle section of the largest jar for making a 'shaker jar card'.

TIP - For  perfect stamping  and die cutting of the flower stems and leaf stems.
Lay the stamp in the framelit, then press the stamp  to your stamp block. Remove framelit and now you will have a perfectly shaped stamp which will give you a  perfectly white border when the framelit is cut out.

Jar of Love - Watercolour Block Wash Background

Love this colour combination. Using markers, bands of Sweet Sugarplum,Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach were coloured onto a size F clear block. Then it was spritzed until beads of water formed and then pressed onto a piece of water colour paper to make up the background for the bouquet of Sweet Sugarplum  flowers.
The watercolour paper was mounted on a layer of Pink Pirouette cardstock. A strip of Sweet Sugarplum ruched ribbon on a 2" panel of Sweet Sugarplum In-colour DSP stack  with a Sweet Sugarplum cardbase made up the card.
