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!
