EVERYDAY JARS

What would you rather do – can fruit or arrange flowers???

2016.08.27 JarsFor our jar cards, we use the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelits dies.  The jars you see here are actually 3 parts.  The base is the jar stamped on Whisper White cs, painted with a pale wash of Watermelon Wonder or Peekaboo Peach, and die cut. The jar is then filled with strawberries or peaches fussy cut from the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  The jar is then stamped with Jet Black StazOn on a window sheet, die cut, and glued over the filled jar.  Finally the lid, stamped in Basic Gray on Smoky slate is wet embossed with clear embossing powder, die cut and adhered onto the jar.  The jar bases have been pre-stamped, pre-painted, and pre-cut for you.  The window sheet jars have also been stamped and pre-cut for you.  I found stamping the jars on the window sheeting to be quite challenging as the photopolymer stamps wanted to slide on the window sheets.  However, I finally came up with enough for stamp camp.

2016.08.27 Jars flowersIf you prefer flower arranging to canning fruit, this is the card for you!  The base of the jar has been painted with a very light wash of Marina Mist.  Stems of leaves and flowers are placed in the jar and the window sheet jar is glued on top.  I added several stems to the jar to increase the fullness.  Small stamped and die cut flowers were added to the flower stems and greenery.  I added a jar lid on one of the jars before I realized – DUH – how can you have a lid on a jar filled with flowers.  But I liked the finished look and chose to leave it.  The smaller jar was filled with a smaller amount of flowers and foliage and a bow was added to the jar rim.  Part of the challenge with this card is that I spent many years as a floral designer and even taught college level floral design.  Consequently, I still hold the same design principles and it is hard to let them go for this card!

Both cards use the Fruit Stand Designer Series paper for the background.  The top scalloped DSP on the floral card is shorter than the fruit card.  The placement of the black “hello” sentiment varies, depending on which card is chosen.  An interesting combination would be one jar filled with fruit and the other with flowers – a fruit and flowers combination!  Or you could even fill your jars with fish which are included in the stamp set and matching framelits.

This is our final card for September Stamp Camp.  I hope you can make it.  Remember to let me know which 4 cards you choose to do, or I will assume you wish to do 1 of each.  If you know  you wish to do the fruit jar, it would be helpful to let me know so I have a sufficient number of jars with Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach washes.

As a reminder for dates and times – Thursday September 1 from 12N to 4 PM, Friday September 2 from 2 PM – 9 PM, and Saturday September 3 from 9 AM – 4 PM.  October Stamp Camp will be October 6, 7, and 8.  We will be doing a shaving cream card in October as well as a Cookie Cutter Christmas card.  The Taylored Expressions Roly Poly Witch will also make her debut at October stamp camp.  A fun time is guaranteed.

Don’t forget about the September 20% discount for all Stampin ’Up products.  This is a discount offered by me – not Stampin’ Up so orders will need to filter through me!
