I hope you had a good weekend and are ready to get some more card making ideas.  I have returned to the Annual Catalog today with a little bit of the Occasions Catalog thrown in.

I loved the Jar of Love stamp set from the first time I saw it.  I grew up with Ball Jars used for just about everything, including drinking glasses!  So this was right out of my childhood.  I added some LOVE to today’s card with just a small touch.  Here is the card.


Jar of Love, 141587


Did you pick up on my LOVE?  I do adore the different words that just happen to fit on the jar!  I think this card could be used for a variety of reasons, and obviously could be done in almost any color you wanted.  That is always a win and one of the things I look for when searching for card ideas and layouts.

Everything on the jar and the stamped flowers are included in the Jar of Love stamp set.  The punched flowers are from the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack in the Occasions Catalog.  The Heart Epoxy Droplets are in that catalog as well.  Remember, they are the clear ones that can be colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I have a tip that I used for the punched flowers.  I used the Paper Pierce Mat and the Paper Piercing Tool to give some dimension to the punched flowers.  Place the flower on the mat and use the handle end of the tool to press down into the mat.  It bends the flower pretty evenly.  And of course adding the pearl to the center is just the finishing touch!

Thank you for visiting today.  Please return tomorrow for another card idea.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.  And a gentle reminder about the Join Promotion and the awesome Shopping Spree you get with it.  I do promise that there are NO pressure sales to do more than join and place that original order.  I would love to talk with you about it.

Here is the Tote.  It is a great size, has dividers that can be moved for whatever products you are carrying each use.  There are two outside pockets that are large enough to hold punches, and much more.  There is a zipper outside pocket.  It has regular straps as well as a shoulder strap. It has the Stampin’ Up! logo.  It is made of a great heavy weight canvas.  And it is so Pretty!!
