I love the look of flowers in mason jars. You may have noticed that with some past card shares (like THIS one from a few weeks back). In fact I like jar stamps filled with all sorts of goodies and have used them many many times. I'll share links to my favorite jar stamps and past projects at the end of today's blog post.
I thought I'd share a couple more new cards using the SSS June 2014 Card Kit, You Are My Favorite today. The first one shows the six petal flowers and leaves from the the Favorite Flowers Stamp Set combined with stamped stems from the Scribble Flowers Stamp Set all tucked in a cute glass vellum jar from the Filled With Love Stamp Set.I wanted the stamped images to shine so I opted for a white background but I wanted to incorporate some texture to give the background interest. I used the new Large Moroccan Stencil with my favorite Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste. I didn't add the embossing paste over the whole stencil, instead just here and there for a somewhat distressed look and feel.
I stamped the greeting from the Favorite Flowers Stamp Set on the jar using Versamark and heat embossed the design with white embossing powder. Some enamel dots from the SSS June 2014 Card Kit, You Are My Favorite complete the flowers and some twine wrapped around the top of the jar finishes off the design.
As I was stamping the round flower for the card above I realized that the circler shape with the scribble circle shape inside sort of looked like a lollipop and that got me to thinking how cute it would be to create a jar filled with "lollipops" using the Favorite Flowers Stamp Set! I love being able to utilize my supplies in new and different ways!
I used the postage border stamp from the Absolutely Delightful Stamp Set for the lollipop "sticks". The gumballs are from the Filled With Love Stamp Set, the tag from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set, the greeting on the tag from Favorite Flowers Stamp Set and the greeting on the jar from the Hey Sugar Stamp Set.
