Stampin' Up! Jar of Love Friend

Hi Stampin' Friends!!

Today I'm going to share the second card from my Jar of Love card kit. I hope you enjoy!!

Stamps: Jar of Love, Hardwood Background 
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Peekaboo Peach
Accessories: Everyday Jars Framelits, Doily, Peekaboo Peach ribbon, Dimensionals

Kit Includes:
1 - Bermuda Bay card base
1 - Whisper White card front
1 - Whisper White piece for stamping
1 - Crumb Cake strip
1 - Smoky Slate strip
1 - Bermuda Bay piece
1 - half Doily
1 - Peekaboo Peach Ribbon

Attach Whisper White card front onto Bermuda Bay card base.
Trim the doily to fit on the Crumb Cake strip.
If you have the Hardwood Background stamp, then stamp the Crumb Cake strip with Crumb Cake ink. If you don't have the Hardwood stamp (and why don't you?!) you could also emboss the piece with the Woodgrain embossing folder. If you do not have either, just leave it plain. Attach Crumb Cake strip to the bottom of the Whisper White card front.
Attach Doily to the Crumb Cake strip.
Stamp the large jar image using Bermuda Bay ink (you could use Basic Black ink if you do not have Bermuda Bay) onto the Bermuda Bay piece. Cut out using the coordinating Framelit.
Stamp the "Friend" sentiment using Bermuda Bay ink onto the front of your jar.
Stamp the jar lid image using Smoky Slate ink onto the Smoky Slate piece. Cut out using coordinating Frameit. Attach to the top of the jar using Liquid Glue.
Position your jar where you want it on the center of the card front. DO NOT ATTACH THE JAR YET!! Lightly draw a pencil mark at the top of the jar onto the Whisper White piece. This will give you a reference for when you stamp the stems.
Using WIld Wasabi ink (or any other shade of green ink you have), stamp multiple stems at various levels onto the Whisper White card front.
Attach your jar using Dimensionals.
Stamp your flowers. First use Peekaboo Peach ink for the lighter color. Then stamp Pumpkin Pie for the darker color. Cut out flowers using coordinating Framelits.
Attach flowers using Dimensionals.
Tie Peekaboo Peach ribbon around the top of the card.

And now you are finished with card number two!!

Here was my inspiration for this card:

My mom bought me this antique mason jar at a thrift store. I store my big Stampin' Up! buttons in it. Notice how the word "Ball" is slanted upward? I've seen many people try to stamp the "jar" sentiments straight. It's not supposed to be straight. And I'm not going to lie, it bugs me when I see it stamped straight. A little OCD much? :)
