Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around REMEMBER. This word can mean different things to different people – fond memories, respectful tributes, special occasions that we’ll never forget. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I love today’s blog hop theme. To me, Remember is the same as memories. So in looking through my stamps for something that fit that description, I ran across a perfect stamp set. It is retiring, so I love that I am getting one more use out of it.
This Jar Of Love Bundle has been a go to set for me for a while. I just love Ball Jars!! That is the memory for this card. When I was a kid, we did everything from drink, to catch lightning bugs, plant terrariums, use as fish bowls, and last but probably the most use was as a vase for flowers. My Mom loved the blue Ball jars. She kept those for flower vases or to hold candy. Those were special. I think she would like today’s use of the jar.
To get the look I wanted for the Blue jar, I stamped and embossed the jar with White Embossing powder on Vellum card stock. I then went back with the LOVE in Smoky Slate Embossing Powder. It did not turn out as I thought it would. But I like the very light result even better. I adhered the vellum jar to a jar die cut in Coastal Cabana. I put rolled up glue dots in each corner to hopefully not be seen.
I stamped and die cut the flowers in two colors on each flower. I stamped the leaves directly on the white. Some of the flowers are raised with Dimensionals and some are flat on the white. The yellow flowers all received an Artisan Pearl for the center. It doesn’t show well, but all of the flowers received just a touch of Wink of Stella to give them a bit of sparkle.
The background paper is a sneak peek from the next Annual Catalog. It is the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. It had just enough of Coastal Cabana / Bermuda Bay blue in it to work perfectly.
Thank you for stopping by today. I am last on the roster today, but depending on where you started you may not have been to number 1 yet.
