Cherished Friend Jar of Flowers Card with Stampin' Up!
I absolutely love ink blending! I find it soothing for some reason. Today's card features the Jar of Flowers stamp set, Jar Punch and the Lovely You stamp set using the "cherished friend" sentiment.
The colors are Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Flirty Flamingo - I was looking for a beach themed color scheme.
I used the following cuts of cardstock:
Whisper White (thick): 8½” x 5½”, scored at 4¼”
Whisper White: 3¼" x 5½”
I also used the following stamps and punch:
Sunflowers image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set
"cherished friend" sentiment stamp from the Lovely You stamp set
Trim your Whisper White (thick) cardstock to 8½” x 5½” and score at 4¼”
Use your bone folder to make sure you have a nice crisp fold in your card base so it lies flat
Trim a piece of Whisper White to 3¼" x 5½”
Use your Jar punch with a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock (I had a scrap piece that worked great for this!)
Cut approximately 5" of Coastal Cabana ribbon from the Playing with Patterns ribbon combo pack
Stamp the sunflowers image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Versamark ink onto your 3¼" x 5½” piece of Whisper White, centered and approximately 1" from the top of the cardstock lengthwise
Cover the stamped image in clear embossing powder and heat set with your heat tool
Grab your sponge daubers for you Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin' Ink pads and blend over the embossed image and the remainder of the Whisper White cardstock
Use a dry cloth to remove any excess ink on the embossed image
Spray lightly with a Stampin' Spritzer with water to give a slightly distressed look
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the ink blended piece of Whisper White and adhere down approximately ¼” from the left edge of your card base
Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the "cherished friend" sentiment stamp from the Lovely You stamp set centered, stamped vertically along the edge of the blended Whisper White cardstock (see image for further details)
Tie the Coastal Cabana around the top of your Flirty Flamingo punched jar and tie in a knot
Apply a few Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the punched jar and adhere centered over the blended Whisper White approximately ½" from the bottom of the card base
To complete your card, add 3 basic rhinestones on either side of your stamped "cherished friend" sentiment
Feel free to play around with the colors. This card could be repurposed for so many different sentiments in so many colors!
