Jar of Love is another stamp set that has not gotten enough love from me. For this card, I stamped the jar on vellum using Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I put it on some Wood Textures paper and Buffalo Check stamped paper that I had laying on my work table. The background is Hardwood stamped using Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake.
This is the card I made for swaps at Onstage in Madison the beginning of November. OnStage is a gathering of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators where we celebrate our accomplishments and learn about upcoming products. I also made this card in my last Cookies & Cards class over the weekend.

I cut a piece of Crumb Cake to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, and folded it in half. Next I inked up the Hardwood stamp with Chocolate Chip and put the folded Crumb Cake card CAREFULLY onto the stamp so the entire front panel would be covered. On a separate piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Crumb Cake, I stamped the Hardwood with Chocolate Chip again. With this piece, I cut along the “planks” to create my cross supports. The edges of the card and the cross supports were inked with Chocolate Chip on the edges using a sponge. For the sentiment, I stamped Father’s day in Dapper Denim and Happy in Crumb Cake onto Very Vanilla, then I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch and inked the edges with Chocolate Chip. The star was die cut out of Dapper Denim.
I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting lately. I’ve been creating just not taking pictures and actually blogging them. 🙂 I hope this is worth the wait.
I’ve been playing with the new 2016-2018 Stampin’ Up! In Colors creating some cards to showcase them and here is what I’ve come up with. I got the initial idea from a photo Cecelia Nardus Erasmus posted in a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator group.
I started by putting a piece of painters tape across the Hardwood stamp. Then I inked the stamp, removed the tape (I almost forgot this a couple of times), put the paper on the stamp and rub the back of it with your hand. My first attempt I used some older washi tape that I have laying around to mask off the white strip but the ink went through it.
