Stampin Dreams Blog Hop - Carryover Stamp Set Jar of Love

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop for June 2017. This months theme is Carryover Items from the previous catalogs. You are currently visiting Denise from the USA. I hope you enjoy my card showcasing the carry over item Jars of Love Stamp and Die Set.

I love Ball jars, I have several sizes and colors.  I have even painted and etched a few.  I use them to put misc items in, I have decorated my house and craft room with them.  One thing I love to put in them is flowers.  So the card below was inspired from my love of Ball jars.  This was my favorite new set last year and I am so thankful Stampin' Up! carried it over. 

I may have cheated a little by adding some flowers from the new stamp and die set Beautiful Bouquet, but I wanted a variety of flowers.  

I added a little Wink of Stella to make the flowers glisten.


The colors I choose came from a picture I seen, and I rarely use all blues together for flowers.

Jar of Love Stamp Set

Wow!!  We had a great time at my open house featuring the new 2017 Stampin' Up!
