Final Days to get the Thoughtful Branches set!

Hi everyone! There are just a couple days left to get the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and dies!  I had a lot of fun using this set and I know I will be making some more cards with it for Halloween and Christmas, I just didn't quite get them completed in time to blog about them.  I plan to use the tree branches with out leaves for a spooky Halloween scene, and I also saw a few things on Pinterest where the leaf or blossom bunch can be used for a pumpkin!  I also saw the tree branches as coral for the cute fish set!  If I make them by Wednesday I will be sure to share.  In the meantime go check out this Pinterest board I set up to share cards made with this great set!  I barely scratched the surface with this set!  So pretty and fun! and I love that there are great winter cards and spring flowers and fall and every occasion and stamping style be it fancy or simple!  Really, go check out that Pinterest board!
Here are a couple we made at Stamp Camp on Saturday...
This card was inspired by one from the Pinterest Board by Shannon Lane.  Shannon's card has a winter feel with blue hues and I went with fall. Checking out other cards online is a great way to get some inspiration and you can make your cards the same, or maybe copy a color scheme or a layout.  Or just change up the colors and make it more you!

This card was made with Shimmery White cardstock, hard to photograph but very pretty in person.  I embossed the background with the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder.









Here are some close ups. I love the glimmer paper leaves and the splatter from the Wink of Stella pen.  Sponges were used to add the sunset sky to the circle punch out.

what will you catch in your mason jar?

Hi Everyone!  More jar projects today!   This card is keeping it simple by just using the stamps and not the dies.  I love those little lightning bugs! so cute and my kids love to catch them and put them in jars so I am sure this set will show up on a scrapbook page sometime soon as well! I hand cut the little lid because its pretty simple and it was faster than getting out the big shot and dies.  There is a die for the lightning bugs as well. 
I also LOVE the paper I used for the background! so pretty and I am hording it a bit so I cut it down to 3 by 3 so that I could make 4 cards with one sheet.  The paper is from the Serene Scenery Designer Series paper stack.  One side of the paper has a photo of something, like the painted wood in this case, and the back has a pattern.





This paper is so great! Check out what Cindy did with it here! 
She used the Sunshine Sayings set that I used yesterday! so pretty, I will be casing that for sure!














 I really like the sayings that come with the stamp set, so fun.  The newer size burlap ribbon is great too! Did you notice that is is thinner now?  I like the look of burlap a lot and the thinner size is so much easier to add to a card or scrapbook page, I know I am going to use that a lot.













This next card was completely copied from another demonstrator, also named Elizabeth.  Here is her card. 
I saw her card on Pinterest and knew I needed to make one because my daughter loves fairies and there is actually a move where Tinkerbell is caught in a jar by a little girl named....Elizabeth.  Anyway, Jillian really likes that movie so I thought she would really like this card.  Do you see the ribbon I used in the background?  That is a sneak peek of some new Sweet Sugarplum Ribbon that is in the new Holiday Catalog!  The sequins are also in the catalog!  The ribbon is gorgeous!  It comes in a two pack with a roll of Sweet Sugarplum and Silver.  The sequins are Sweet Sugarplum, Soft Sky and White gold!  The ribbon and sequins will not be available to purchase for customers until September. 




 The Jar of Love bundle comes with dies to cut out both the outside and inside of the jar, making it perfect for shaker cards!

I added some Wink of Stella to the fairy wings, but it is not really noticeable in the photograph.  In real life, the wings shimmer like the ribbon.










Check back again later this week to see what else I catch in my mason jars!!  This is a set of cards that will go out to my August shoppers! Hope you like them!!

There's a Jar for that...

Hi everyone!  I am really loving the new Jar of Love stamp set! It was released in the new Annual Catalog this past June and the set is really cute, so cute it was used on the cover of the catalog.   The set contains several sized of mason jars, as well as flowers and hearts and lightning bugs and even a fish.  I loved the set right away and is was on my very first order from the new catalog, but with the kids out for the summer and the limited time Thoughtful Branches set, I never had a chance to play with it.  Well, this week is all about the Jar of Love set! Love is right!!








This is a really big set, lots of pieces. 
One great thing I wanted to point out is that two of the flowers are on one stamp, and then the coordinating framelits are one piece two, but it cuts out two separate flowers. I love that, less time cranking out flowers! Two at once!














I used the flowers and leaves in a past post where I showed my Project Life photo album, you can see it here.
The flowers are great and you are going to use them on so many projects!  I love this Love card!
The heart and the word Love are from the Sunshine Sayings set.






This card uses Night of Navy, Marina Mist, So Saffron and Mint Macaroon, And honestly, I chose the colors because I wanted to use the Washi Tape! Kinda silly to base a card around the Washi Tape but I really like it!




These are the first two cards that I wanted to show you, I have several more finished that I need to photograph to show you this week, as well as some cards I am making with products from the new Holiday catalog that were made to go with the Jar of Love set!!  I was THRILLED when I saw the Christmas set in the catalog that is made to have items for the mason jars!!  You are going to love it!  I will show some cards later this week.  Then as I kept flipping through the new catalog I came to the Halloween items and yep, another set to go with the jars!!  So, if you are thinking of placing an order this month, I highly recommend the jars!!  Then you can get the Christmas and/or Halloween sets when they go live next month, sort of spread out the love a bit.  Be sure to check back this week to see more with the Jar of Love bundle, and check out the Board I made for this set on my Pinterest page.
