Stamp Review Crew – Jar of Love

Stamp Review Crew - Jar of Love

Are you ready for a blockbuster week of inspiration???

It starts today with another Stamp Review Crew starring the Jar of Love stamp set (and it’s best friend the Everyday Jars framelits!).

This bundle is a favourite of mine and I’ve already had a lot of fun with it.

Mason jars have been ‘on trend’ for a number of years now and they lend themselves beautifully to cards & projects.  As you’ll see today, there are oh-so-many things you can put in jars!

The stamp set is ready to go with flowers, fish, fireflies and more!

But, for something different, I thought I’d show you some ideas that combine the jars with other sets from the Annual Catalogue.

So, this is Jar of Love & Friends!

Featuring Feather Together, Seaside Shore and Live, Love Grow stamp sets.

This card turns the smallest jar into a little ink well and uses the feather from Feather Together as a quill pen to create some gentlemanly birthday wishes.

This card uses the largest jar to keep a shaker jar full of shells – with some glitter to jazz it up!

And the final card turns the medium size jar into a vintage mason jar in solid colours – Bermuda Bay, Whisper White & Smoky Slate – with beautiful Live, Love, Grow foliage poking out the top!

Each card was such fun to make and hopefully I’ve been able to add some applications for the stamp set to your reportoire.

Next stop on this international blog hop – and it’s a big one today {popular set!!!} – is another Aussie – Rochelle Blok.  Rochelle’s style is amazing, so I know you’ll love what she makes with Jar of Love.

As it happens, I’m in the middle of an Australian stretch, so the blog before me (if you want to go backwards) is Nikki Spencer – also very clever and inspiring!!!

CASEing the Catty #87 Artistic Expressions


Can you believe it’s the end of the weekend already???  But, that means it’s time for another CASEing the Catty blog hop.

Every Sunday night at 7pm (AEST), the CTC Crew will share lots of great ideas with you from the latest Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. They will either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, to name a few examples, as a springboard for their own creations.

This week, the Crew are sharing ideas inspired by the Artistic Expressions section of the Annual Catalogue (pages 92-157).  This section is huge, so we’re going to see lots of amazing designs.

I am showcasing the layouts you see in this picture from page 129, but using other stamp sets from the catalogue.  I also changed up the colour combinations.

For my CASE of the top photo I used the hostess stamp set “Gift of Love” (page 201).

And for the bottom photo I used the Wetlands stamp set from page 133.  I just love this stamp set – it’s easily one of my all-time favourites.

Doesn’t it look stunning against the water scene from the Serene Scenery DSP???

Simply Stunning – Serene Scenery DSP!

Have you placed a new catalogue order yet?  Was the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack in it???

It’s stunning!!!

You really have to see this DSP in person to appreciate how stunning the designs are, but this video does a pretty good job of sharing it’s beauty:

Although I love the reverse side, the photographic images are the highlight of this pack.  I’m saving a couple of them for some ideas I have.

This is a card I made to welcome my newest recruit using three of the photographic designs.

I normally put ‘hello’ on the front of my welcome cards (logically) but thought sunshine worked well with these images.  Sunshine is happiness to me… and happiness is Stampin’ Up!
