Jar of Flowers Makes Simple to WOW Cards

Papercrafting/ Projects

Whether you are new to cardmaking, prefer a simpler style of stamping, or want a fully embellished, stepped up card, I'll show you today how one stamp set can do it all. Jar of Flowers makes simple to WOW cards!

Card 1 is an example of Basic Stamping: I used the Jar of Flowers stamp set,  Whisper White Cardstock, the Flower For Every Season Designer Series Paper and Crumb Cake Classic Ink. I also used a small piece of Bumblebee cardstock to create a sentiment piece.

Card 2 is a Stepped Up card: I colored the flowers with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, added a bit of “bling” from the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen, and finished off with three 2020-2021 Enamel Dots.

Card 3 is my Wow Card: Added some water using Seaside Spray Stampin' Blend Light, a bow made from the Misty Moonlight Ribbon.  I also cut out one of the flowers from the DSP and popped tit up using a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals. 

The Jar of Flowers stamp set by Stampin' Up! and the Flower For Every Season Designer Series paper are part of the Flower For Every Season Suite of products by Stampin' Up!  This suite also has a coordinating punch that can be used to create the most adorable shaker cards, like this one!

How Can I Get a Mystery Box?


Happy Friday! First question you probably have is what IS a mystery box?

These boxes contain an assortment of retired stamp sets, some with coordinating dies, punches, Designer Series Papers, cardstock, ink pads, markers, ribbon, embellishments, and more. I am DESTASHING many of my Stampin' Up! retired products and also some non Stampin' Up! items. I usually do a BOGO at this time of the year, but with the Covid epidemic, that's just not a safe or practical option for now.

I still want to offer my customers the chance to get some great crafting items at a good price. I'm offering mystery boxes, stuffed to the brim with crafting goodness!

I've been a demonstrator for over 18 years so many of these items have been around for awhile. Some are brand new, some are used, but all are in great condition.

I am putting as much as I can get into each box! There will be over $200 of products (original retail) in each. Each box is different and will totally be a surprise when you receive it…kind of like a “grab bag” that some of the “big box” stores do from time to time.

Each box is priced at only $80.00 (US ONLY) plus $15.00 for priority shipping. Payment must be through Paypal (you don't need to have a Paypal account to pay.)

OK, now to the next question…how do I get a mystery box?

If you would like a box, email me your name, paypal address, mailing address including zipcode. I will send you an invoice and once I receive payment I'll ship out your box priority mail.

My email newsletter subscribers have gobbled up most of the boxes, but I have about 10 or so left. If you're not yet a subscriber, you can do so above, and you'll get a free project tutorial just for joining).

Questions? Feel free to ask away in the comments or send me a private email.
