Hi Stampers. Do you remember last May / June when the new Annual Catalog was coming out and the Jar of Flowers and Sunflower bundles were all the rage? Did you get them? Did you think now that we are getting into winter, they did not have a current use? Think again! Today’s card can be a Wall or Winter card using these Spring / Summer bundles.
I started with a Crumb Cake card base, followed by a layer of Early Espresso CS and then a layer of Neutrals DSP as my backdrop. Next up, I die cut the sprigs from the Sunflower Dies out of Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso CS that had Adhesive Sheet on the back. I adhered those to the card front in three groupings (where the jars would later go over them).
Stampin’ Tip: I always use adhesive sheet on my cardstock before die cutting small or detailed pieces, I find this make much less mess than any type of glue I’ve tried to use. You just peel off the backing and apply like stickers – easy peasy!
The large jar stamp was stamped onto a scrap of Mossy Meadow, a scrap of Merry Merlot and then a scrap of Night of Navy using the same ink color as the cardstock. These jars were then punched out using the Jar Punch. I wrapped the gold thread from the Forever Greenery trim pack around each jar twice and tied a knot on the front. (If they don’t lay down properly – a glue dot under the knot will fix that quickly – take that unruly thread!!). The jars are then adhered to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.
Inside the card is a layer of Very Vanilla CS with the sentiment (from Perfectly Plaid stamp set) stamped in Early Espresso ink. I adhered another sprig and the top half of a jar in the lower right corner to make the inside coordinate with the outside.
So there you have it – stamps that you thought were only good for spring and summer looks all set up as a Christmas card! How will you take a second look at your stamps and imagine how they would look in another color scheme or with a Christmas sentiment? Let me know in the comments.
