Hello there crafters! Thanks for joining me today. I’m hopping with my friends around the world as part of the Stamp Review Crew where we showcase a Stampin’ Up! stamp set. Today it’s the Jar of Flowers stamp set – and the coordinating suite of products, which includes a punch, shaker domes, ribbon, DSP and more!
I love the array of flowers that this stamp set comes with. And of course, I L-O-V-E the Jar Punch. Coordinating bundles are a win in my book!
The first card I’m sharing today features the sunflowers. Sunflowers are just so bright & cheery.
This suite has been created with a focus on the 5 new In Colors. They are featured heavily in the Flowers for Every Season DSP and provide an excellent colour palette to base your project colour combinations on.
I love the combination of white, yellow & blue together. The sunflowers have been painted using Bumblebee & Cinnamon Cider ink using a Wink of Stella Pen – so they are extra shimmery when you see them up close!
I added more sunflowers to the inside – because I love a good carry through of a theme!!! This suite is perfect for layering – the colours coordinate, the DSP matches and the accessories bring it all together.
The Jar of Flowers stamp set is one of the few image only sets in the catalogue. This is a purposeful design feature so that you can match it with all your favourite sentiment sets. I’ve used the Happy & Birthday words cut separately from the stamp in the Happiest of Birthday stamp set. This is a great staple for every crafter. Birthday cards are the most common type of card sent (accounting for half of ‘everyday’ cards sent), so it helps to have a fabulous set such as this in your collection.
For the second card I’m sharing, it’s really about the whole suite – featuring the DSP, punch, dome shakers, ribbon and the long stripey stamp from the set as a straw to create an M&M milkshake slider card!
The flap the shaker dome sits on lifts up from the card front revealing the way to the M&Ms.
When you pull out the sliding piece, the mini M&Ms fall out of the back of the jar.
And once the recipient has enjoyed all the yummy chocolates, they can still enjoy their card. Or they can fill it up again and send the card to a new chocolate lover.
The shaker domes that coordinate with the punch and stamp set add so many more options on how to use this set. The domes can be filled with an array of small pieces. I’ve seen a great tool themed card where the jar was filled with nails, bolts & screws – what a fantastic idea!!
For more fabulous ideas, please keep hopping and visit the blogs of the other Stamp Review Crew design team members. They always come up with inspirational projects.

Have a great week!
