Leaves Stencil with Flourish Thinlits

I was playing with my new Flourish Thinlits and cutting out many images.
 I cut out a few leaves from sheet of white cardstock and was trying to figure out what to do with them all...
...when I looked at the sheet that I had cut out the leaves from it looked like a stencil so I gave it a try to create the background for this card.
I used a sponge dauber and Old Olive and Always Artichoke ink.

I had 4 of the die cut leaves but really only need three for the front so tucked the last one in on the inside of the card.

The greeting on the card is from the coordinating stamp set Flourishing Phrases.

Thinlit Thank You Note Cards

I needed some thank you notes so I grabbed the Note Cards & Envelopes that I have in both Whisper White and Crumb Cake to use.
I had a piece of Whisper White card stock that I had cut out with the large piece of the Detailed Floral Thinlits and laid it down on the white note card...not bad so I glued it down.
Now for some words...the Hello You Thinlits have the word "thanks"...perfect.
I really loved how it turned out.

Now for the Crumb Cake note card I used the Flourish Thinlits and using the largest piece I cut out a few with Crumb Cake card stock. I used one whole piece and then cut pieces to fill in the empty space around it.  This one took a little more time than the white card but I am really happy with how it turned out...worth the time.
To adhere all the pieces I used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using the narrow tip end and just applying small dots all over works well.
Happy Stampin'-

Sweet Sugarplum Jar of Love

For this card I thought I would give Sweet Sugarplum a chance as all I seemed to be playing with lately was the Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo...and yes, they are still on this card.
The card base is Sweet Sugarplum card stock with a strip of designer series paper from the Playful Palette paper stack.  Jar is stamped in Pool Party.  Leaves and stems in Emerald Envy.  Small flowers and bow are stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and the other flowers using Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach.
I do have other stamp sets but have been enjoying this one so much!

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.
