My first card includes a shaker filled with both stamped flowers and sequins. After determining the jar placement, I masked off that section with removable tape then stamped random flowers within. I adhered the foam shape, added a sprinkling of sequins and white flower toppings then adhered the acetate. Before gluing the jar and lid die-cuts, I sponged the bottom of the jar with a bit of blue ink.
I added some texture to the background by scoring vertical lines every ¼”. Then I tied the string and added the stamped tag. The strip of dotted paper was added after die-cutting just the bottom of the jar from one edge, then neatly snuggled up to the foam shape. Beneath, I stamped a row of hearts.
I adhered a few sequins outside of the jar then created a small heart from one of the flower sequins as follows:
I nipped off two of the petals just above the hole. This creates the top of the heart. Then from the remaining (leftover) piece, I cut a small triangle from one of the petals. Once fitted together beneath the string, the two pieces create the appearance of a heart.
On my next card, I created a bit of a garden scene, stamping two of the stems and leaves from the stamp set in two different shades of green, bending each slightly in different directions.
After stamping the flowers, I adhered the panel to a block of gray dotted paper from Flirty Florals (included in the kit). The tag was die-cut from the same gray dotted paper then stamped and tied on with gray twine. As a final touch, I adhered iridescent rhinestones (also included in the kit) into the centers of some of the flowers then adhered the assembled panel to my card base. Super easy!
