Jar of Love

Hi everyone!  SURPRISE…it’s a Sunday post!  I had some extra time today and say the CASology Challenge 292 for Foil…oh my word…I HAD to join the fun!  The SAB Springtime Foil papers couldn’t be more perfect for this!

Isn’t this just GORGEOUS?  It’s hard to see the shiny foil in this so here is a close-up one…

 

The outline for the flower and leaves are a rosy foil so I used the Champagne foil for my strip since it also has  pink undertone in there.

Here’s the details…

  • Pink Pirouette – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pink Pirouette – 4 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Springtime Foil dsp (SAB) – color the flower with the Pink Pirouette Blends and the leaves with Old Olive Blends, cut everything out and layer leaves behind flower (NOTE:  because of the paper you can’t make a lot with the exact same flower/leave combination but you can easily substitute the different ones)
  • Champagne Foil – 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to panel, add flower/leaves then stamp greeting using Old Olive, add panel to card front using dimensionals

Yep it really is super easy AND oh so elegant!

Set(s): Jar of Love
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Springtime Foil dsp, Champagne Foil
Ink: Old Olive, BLENDS:  Pink Pirouette, Old Olive
Other: Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Jar of Love

BestFishesIt would be nice if, when I sit down to create, I could create what I have in mind.  But that seldom happens for me.  But then the good part of that is I have extra pieces laying on the top of my desk so that when I want to make a quick card, I just rummage around and find some pieces to use…LOL!!!

This was one of those cards.  I’m been working with the Jar of Love set for my July ‘bonus’ project for Create with Connie and Mary and had this jar left over.  I also had this little strip of envelope dsp and silver glimmer strip all ready to go.  So…this really was a quick an easy project because I really just needed to add the fish and greeting!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – add Flirty Flamingo strip – 1/4 x 3 1/4 and Silver Glimmer strip – scant 1/8 x 3 5/8, stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival
  • Stamp jar using Black Black Archival, water using Pool Party and cut out, stamp fish using Peek-a-boo Peach, cut out and add to jar, add jar to card using dimensionals
  • Add some small Basic Rhinestones to finish off
