Sweet Flowers


Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 168!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

A few years ago I would hardly ever purchase flower sets.  I have to admit I was constantly irritated by so many flower sets in the catalogs!!!  Recently I have become enamored of flowers….coloring them, watercoloring them…they just make me happy 🙂  The Jar of Flowers set is no exception to that happy fun!  I love the jar and punch and shaker domes…I also love that there are four different bunches of flowers that you can add to the jar.  So versatile and easy to use for lots of different kinds of cards.  I colored my flowers with Blends and added a wash of watercolor to the background paper and a darker watercolor wash to the inside of the jar.  I love how it came out and I hope you do too!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 81

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dani Dziama’s blog.  As always, we have some amazeballs inspiration to share today 🙂

I (just barely) returned home from a Stamping & Scrapbooking Cruise in the Caribbean.  It was soooooo much fun!  The ship was beautiful, the ports were great, time spent with friends old and new was priceless!  One of the fun swaps I participated in was an 8″ x 8″ recipe card swap.   I not only received some amazing projects but some absolutely yummy recipes 🙂

This was my recipe card swap.  This truly is the best peach cobbler evah and I combined the Everyday Jars Framelits and the Jar of Love stamp set with the Pop of Pink DSP to make my cute recipe card.

The 8″ x 8″ inch base is Basic Black cardstock, strips of Pop of Pink designs and gold foil are added next.  The recipe is printed out and stapled to the front of the recipe card and Pop of Pink Washi Tape is added for interest.  The most difficult part of the page is the “Jar of Love” made into a little shaker.  The full jar is die cut in black and in transparency.  The jar is also stamped on Thick Whisper White in Archival Black and die cut.  On this jar, the center is also die cut out.  The transparency jar is adhered to the stamped and die cut jar on the inside to create a clear window.  Foam adhesive strips are added underneath.  Once the foam is on, punched hearts in Melon Mambo are put “inside the jar” along with sequins from the Metallics Assortment.  The back of the jar is sealed with the full black die cut jar.  A small tag is stamped and die cut using the Homemade for You stamp set, it’s attached with Melon Mambo thick twine.  The finished jar is adhered to recipe front with Gold Thread swirled underneath.
