Floral Affection Jar of Love

 
Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo make for a very happy color combination.
 
 
On the Flirty Flamingo card stock I embossed the edge with one of the embossing folders from the Floral Affection set of two folders.
The jar from the Jar of Love stamp set is stamped in Pool Party, stems are Emerald Envy, small flowers are Flirty Flamingo and the large is Peekaboo Peach.

Little Jar of Love Cards

 
Both of the cards I am sharing today feature the smallest jar in the Jar of Love stamp set.
 
 
This first card is a 3" x 3" card.
The base is Whisper White card stock with a piece of polka dot paper from the Neutrals designer series paper stack.
The jar and "water" are stamped with Pool Party and the lit is done with Smokey Slate ink.
Finished off with a bit of Peekaboo Peach for a fish and the ribbon.
 



This next card is has a card base of Crumb Cake card stock with designer series papers from the Playful Palette stack and the Neutrals stack.

Again I stamped the little jar in Pool Party.  The "burlap" wrap is stamped with Crumb Cake.
The large flower and the bow are stamped in Peekaboo Peach.  The leaf branches are Emerald Envy.
The little flowers are from the Best Birds stamp set and are stamped with Flirty Flamingo and then colored in with the Pink Pirouette marker.

Jar of Love Thanks

For this card I used the Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating Everyday Jar Framelits.
Loving all the framelits that go with this stamp set so I don't have to cut things out by hand!
 
 
For the base of the card I used Flirty Flamingo card stock with a strip of paper from the Playful Palette designer series paper stack.
On the Whisper White card stock I stamped a couple of branches from the Jar of Love stamp set in Emerald Envy.
The Jar is Pool Party ink stamped on Pool Party card stock.  I did stamp the "thanks" also in Pool Party but then went over it with the Pool Party Stampin' Write Marker to make it stand out a little better.  The "twine" is stamped with Crumb Cake ink at the neck of the jar.  I also added some stems in the jar with Emerald Envy stamped off once.

 
The leaves are stamped with Emerald Envy ink on Emerald Envy card stock.
For the flowers I stamped the Peekaboo Peach card stock with Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo inks and did the same on the Flirty Flamingo card stock with the smaller flowers.  I like the soft look this creates.
 
I am really loving the new In-Colors and how nicely they play together.

Jar of Fireflies

I often say "I love this stamp set" about many stamp sets but I really do love this new stamp set.
 
It is the Jar of Love and there is a coordinating framelit set, Everyday Jar Framelits, that makes it even more loveable!
 
I finally found some time to open up this set and play with it...I don't know why I waited as long as I did!
 
I have several cards to share with this set but I am only sharing this one today.
 
 
For this card I used the branches and flowers from the Best Birds stamp set and coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits.
The branch is inked with Soft Suede, the leaves are Emerald Envy and the flowers are Flirty Flamingo colored in with Pink Pirouette.

For the jar I used Pool Party ink to stamp the jar on Whisper White cardstock along with the saying "you light up my life". The jar hanger is stamped in Smokey Slate. I stamped the fireflies in black and colored in the body with Daffodil Delight and sponged a little in the center of the jar.  I also stamped a couple extra fireflies and cut out with the die.  Love all the small coordinating dies!
 

 
To add a little sparkle I colored the fireflies and center of the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Flirty Flamingo Flourishing Phrases

 
Okay, say that one 10 times fast...Flirty Flamingo Flourishing Phrases!
 
Another lovely new stamp set with coordinating thinlit dies.
 
 
For this card I stamped the large floral vine image from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in black on Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  Using the Flourish Thinlit dies I cut out several of the images on Whisper White cardstock.   Added some bling with the Basic Rhinestones and a greeting from the same stamp set.
 
 
I have been using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach these delicate dies but you need to be careful that you only apply a very little bit so it doesn't seep out the edges.

Detailed Floral Gate Fold Card

 
Peekaboo Peach is such a pretty color so decided to keep this simple with just the Whisper White under it to show the details of the lovely Detailed Floral thinlits.

 
To make this card you will need a piece of cardstock 4-1/4" x 11".

 
Place the largest piece of the floral die at one end and run through the Big Shot then position the edge piece die and run through again.
After you have the one side cut, score so that you have a border about the same as the top and bottom of where you cut out the die.  After making that score line measure 5-1/2" away and score again.


Position the smaller die on the opposite end so it has even borders between the top, bottom and score line.
Cut out in the Big Shot and then position edge die and cut out.
 

 
Fold on score lines.
 
For the inside use a piece of cardstock 4"x10-1/2" scored in the middle at 5-1/4".
Adhere down in the center of the card base and stamp your greeting.


For the inside greeting I used the flower image from Floral Phrases and the "happy anniversary" is from the Best Birds stamp set.

Detailed Floral Thinlits

 
My first card using the Detailed Floral Thinlits
Keepin' it simple.
I just cut out both images on Whisper White cardstock and adhered them onto a Real Red cardstock base.  The one on the front I added little pieces of dimensionals, that was a pain but I thought it looked better than just flat down on the paper.
The greeting is a new stamp called Stylized Birthday.
I embossed it in white.

Below is the front of the card...sorry about the picture...it really is Real Red.



 
 
Love these new thinlits and they are so easy to use with the new Big Shot Platform & Thin Die Adapter and the Precision Base Plate.
You definitely also want the Die Brush with foam pad to loosen up all the little pieces.
