Jar of Flowers Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you this stunning Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Card. This stamp stamp has a coordinating Punch and there are also Shaker Domes available to fit the punched image. I will be featuring cards using these extra elements in future posts but for know I wanted to show you what you can achieve with just the Stamp Set and some Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers Card using Stampin' Blends

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Purple Posy cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Highland Heather cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm.

The main card front is a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm. Onto this I have stamped a number of the images from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Stamp Set (all in Memento Tuxedo Black ink) – first I stamped the jar, then the flower stems, and finally the flower bunch.

The stems are coloured using the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. The flowers are coloured using the Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Stamp Set and is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. The next two larger dies are used to cut pieces of Highland Heather and Purple Posy cardstock. These are all layered together and adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. You could, of course, simplify the card further by trimming rectangles of cardstock rather than using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

The final touch is provided by a few Pearl Basic Jewels which have been coloured using the Rococo Rose Dark Stampin’ Blend.

I hope you have enjoyed this Jar of Flowers Card and I hope I have convinced you that you can achieve great results just using the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Stamp Set. However, if you would like the coordinating Punch and Shaker Domes I’ll have projects coming soon to demonstrate those too.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Grey Granite cardstock measuring 10.5 x 29.7 cm (i.e. an A4 sheet cut in half length-wise). This is scored at 14.9 cm to create a standard tent-fold card base.

The next layer is a piece of Night of Navy cardstock measuring 10 x 26.4 cm. This is scored at 6 and 12 cm along the long edge and the large panel adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A sheet of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) has been cut into three panels: one measuring 13.9 x 9.5 cm and two measuring 5.5 x 9.5 cm. Onto the large panel I have stamped the foliage image from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Grey Granite ink. Each panel is adhered to the relevant Night of Navy panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The flower and foliage images are stamped onto Grey Granite cardstock in Night of Navy ink and fussy cut using Paper Snips. One of the large labels from the Tasteful Labels Dies is used to cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock. The Sprig Punch is also used to cut three pieces of vellum.

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Highland Heather cardstock. The main card front is a 13.9 x 9.5 cm piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been embossed using the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder.

The butterflies are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then ‘in-filled’ using Highland Heather ink. Butterfly Gala is a Two-Step Stamp Set so you get extra stamps to effectively colour in your images! See my video on different types of Stamp Sets for more information. The butterfly bodies are also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then the Butterfly Duet Punch was used to cut the images out. The large butterfly is adhered directly to the card front.

The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. A smaller die is used to cut out a piece of Highland Heather cardstock and these are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The small butterfly is adhered to the corner of the sentiment piece and the whole thing adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Glitter Enamel Dots.

Tone-on-Tone Stamping With Lovely You

Hello and welcome! Today I wanted to share with you a card made using the Tone-on-Tone Stamping Technique. I have used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Bundle (available from 3rd June 2020 – or before if you Join My Team!).

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

This card was inspired by a Global Design Project Colour Challenge. Click the link to find out more, see the other entries or take part!

Tone-on-Tone stamping involves using stamping with a particular colour of ink onto the same colour of cardstock. It’s a great way to add subtle patterns or text to a background. Here’s my card…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. Next I have used a 14.4 x 10 cm piece of Pretty Peacock which I have stamped one of the foliage images onto using Pretty Peacock ink. The technique is repeated on pieces of Soft Sea Foam (8.4 x 10 cm) and Blushing Bride (11.4 x 5 cm) cardstock using foliage and flower stamps from the same Stamp Set. These pieces are all layered together as shown.

The sentiment is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto a 0.75″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. A 1″ strip of Pretty Peacock is also cut out with the punch. These are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few of the 2019-2021 In Colour Faceted Dots.

What do you think?

I think tone-on-tone stamping is a great technique for adding subtle patterns to plain cardstock. It really lends itself to making quick and simple cards which look amazing. Why not try it with a sentiment?

I’m already in love with this punch too! Six different labels from one punch – wow!
