Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers and Country Home Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the August Inkin’ Krew Team Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is Fall Frenzy. My card combines the old with the new – the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers and Country Home stamp sets, the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder and the beautiful Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to an Early Espresso mat with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered a strip of the Gilded Autumn designer series paper to another Early Espresso mat and adhered them to the embossed panel. I cut the bottom of a Crumb Cake panel with the zigzag bottom of the tag die from the North Pole Wonder Dies. I used the Fancy Tag Topper die to cut the top so I would have a longer tag. I wrapped some Mint Macaron and copper ribbons through the top of the tag and tied them with Linen Thread.

I stamped the milk can from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Gray Granite card stock and fussy cut it out. I adhered it to the bottom of the tag with liquid glue. I stamped the sunflower bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla. I colored it with Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Cinnamon Cider, Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them to the tag with dimensionals.

I stamped the label and Thanks sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on a small panel of Very Vanilla. I fussy cut it out and adhered it to the milk can with liquid glue. I punched out an acorn from the Gilded Autumn designer series paper with the acorn punch from the Autumn Punch Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the tag. I adhered the decorated tag to the embossed panel with dimensionals and popped the panel on the front of a Cajun Craze card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Gilded Autumn DSP and added a punched oak leaf and acorn to finish the inside panel.

Decorating with old milk cans is still pretty popular, so I was happy to see that it went so well with the new bouquets from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set. What do you think of this mixing the old with the new?

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set and the new Flowers for Every Season designer series paper to make today’s card. My layout was inspired by a similar card by one of my teammates Leslie Larkin, but her card is a unique fun fold card, so be sure to check it out here after you finish the hop.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:

Isn’t it great to use the new 2020-2022 In Colors? I used them all starting with a Magenta Madness card base. I cut a panel of the pretty Flowers for Every Season designer series paper with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight panel cut out with the next largest die. I popped the layered panels on the card base with dimensionals.

I used the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out a Whisper White Panel. I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers photopolymer stamp set at the top of the panel in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I covered them with a mask and stamped the jar below. I stamped the water using the back of the half jar stamp in Pool Party ink stamped off once. Then I stamped the stems in the jar and colored the arrangement with Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Sea Foam, Poppy Parade and the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the flowers on another Whisper White Panel and colored them with Mango Melody, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the flowers with my paper snips and popped it on top of the arrangement.

I wrapped some Misty Moonlight, silver and Whisper White Twine around the scalloped panel and made a bow. I used the Welcome die from the Well Written dies to cut out the welcome word 3 times using Misty Moonlight card stock. I adhered them together with the Fine-Tip Glue pen and adhered it to the scalloped panel. I popped the floral panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the flowers again in the middle of a Whisper White panel using Misty Moonlight ink after stamping off 4 times. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the Flowers for Every Season DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Flowers for Every Season DSP is so pretty and colorful – it makes it easy to create beautiful cards.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Thank You Card

Good Morning! Tomorrow is the BIG DAY when the new Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is open for orders!! Yay!! In preparation, I am saying good bye to one of my favorite designer series paper packs – Best Dressed – by using it with a sneak peek of one of the cute new stamp sets in the new catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers. They look so good together! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by adhering a panel of the Best Dressed designer series paper to a Lovely Lipstick card base. Today is also the last day for all the Lovely Lipstick products as it is one of the 2018-2020 In Colors retiring today!

I stamped the rose bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and colored it with the Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the flowers again on a Whisper White panel and fussy cut the roses. I colored them with Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the jar from the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the stems and colored them with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the water in Pool Party ink after stamping off.

I cut the panel out with the third largest stitched rectangle die and adhered it to an Old Olive mat. I popped the fussy cut roses on the panel with dimensionals and brushed it with Clear Wink of Stella to give it some glitter. I colored some Whisper White crinkle ribbon with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend and made a bow and adhered it with a mini glue dot. I stamped the Thanks sentiment from the Many Mates cling stamp set in Old Olive ink on a Whisper White strip and trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I used the punch to trim the ends of a Lovely Lipstick panel and adhered the label with dimensionals. I adhered the layered label with liquid glue and adhered the panel to the card base with dimensionals. I finished it off with three Lovely Lipstick enamel dots.

I decorated the inside by adhering a strip of Best Dressed designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Good bye to the pretty Best Dressed designer series paper and Lovely Lipstick and a hearty hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers stamp set as it will be a favorite in the new Annual Catalog. It has a coordinating Jar Punch, reversible stamps and fun shaker domes, plus there are four flowers bouquets that you can put on top! Be sure to check them out when the catalog goes live tomorrow!
