Jar of Love meets mini Tic Tacs!

Hi Friends,

The Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars Framelits were used to make this cute treat!

But before I tell you a bit about it, I want to THANK  Demonstrator Robin Johnson for sharing this project with me! It was her design and I appreciate her talent!

Jar of Love and Tic Tacs!

What do YOU think?

I stamped the small jar with black Memento ink then cut it out with the corresponding Framelit Die.

The Tic Tacs were attached to the center of the jar using two Glue Dots then put it in a 2″x8″ cello bag. Then I tied about 8″ of Night of Navy Baker’s Twine around the neck of the jar and tucked it into the cello bag.

The cello bag was cut down to accommodate the topper. I laid the cello bag inside the topper and stapled it together.

Calypso Coral card stock was cut at 2 1/2″ x 3″ and scored at 1 1/2″. I added a piece of Garden Impressions DSP, cut at 2 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ then Snailed it onto the folded Calypso Coral piece.

The Layering Ovals Framelits were perfect to make the background piece and I used the ‘For You’ from Cake Soiree to stamp the message.

Just to give it a tad of pizzazz, I added a Glitter Enamel Dot!

What do YOU think? I think this would be a CUTE favor for Thanksgiving or Christmas ! Imagine the possibilities!

Valentine’s Day favor using the candy hearts or even St Patrick’s Day with a Peppermint Patty! Stay tuned for more versions!

Stampin’ Up! Thanksgiving card

Hi Friends,

I do love the Fall!

The smell of autumn is intoxicating to me.

I love the colors which tell me the summer has worked very hard…now is time for the leaves to ‘rest’.

So when I saw this Stampin’ UP! Falling For Leaves stamp set, I knew I had to have it!

Here is my very own version of a card I will be excited to send.

The base is Merry Merlot and the next layer is Old Olive.

I embossed the Very Vanilla layer with the NEW Subtles Dynamic Embossing Folder.

You can’t  see the impressions…. well because it’s ‘subtle’ but in real life, it is VERY nice.

It adds just enough texture to give it some extra ‘subtle’ attention!

Next I took the leaf stamps and using Old Olive, Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze inks, stamped then cut them out with the Thinlits.

Then for just a bit of pizzazz, I took Old Olive ribbon and Linen Thread to make a small bow. This was attached with a Glue Dot.

In the opposite corner I just had to add a Gold Faceted gem.

The message was layered onto a piece of Merry Merlot and adhered with Dimensionals. AND of COURSE I just had to use a bit of Wink of Stella –here and there for interest. To me, Wink of Stella is a must fro any project–it adds a sparkle of interest!
