Hi there! Michele Boyer with you today.
I have two cards to share using a variety of fun new product from Queen & Company!
 
My first card uses both Love Jar and Bug Jar kits, new Love Jar Flower & Stem dies and a sprinkling of new Wood Toppings. I was so very excited to see the Love Jar dies, and those wood toppings….adorable! There are six shapes, each packaged in new mini topping bottles.
 
 
 
I used a block of Birthday Bash patterned paper as my background. After stamping and die-cutting the flowers, I positioned each on the patterned paper, using the jar die as a guide. The bottom half of each stem was glued in place then the jar foam shape was adhered. I filled with Love Jar toppings, Bug Jar toppings, a few clear Diamonds and Wood Heart shapes. Before adhering the jar top, I nipped off the flower stems at the top of the jar, adhered the jar lid, then inserted each stem through the jar lid opening, tucking the top edges back under the flowers. Each end was secured using Sheer Glue. Each flower at the end of a stem was adhered using a foam square (cut from the negative space leftover from within the foam jar shape).
 
 
 
Once the jar was assembled, I stamped, colored and die-cut a dragonfly and butterfly then attached each to the jar and patterned paper. I applied glue only to the body portion so that I could bend up the wings slightly. I tied a bit of string then stamped the sentiment.
 
Supplies:  Bug Jar kit, Love Jar kit, Birthday Bash patterned paper, Diamond Toppings, Wood Toppings, Sheer Glue
 
 
 
Next, I stamped the lightning bug from Bug Jar stamp set in a block pattern and colored the bodies with bright Copic markers.
 
 
 
I also used a marker to highlight the word “brighter” in the sentiment. (I love the font!)
 
Once colored, I adhered the panel to a block of Fruit Basket patterned paper, then adhered to a card base.
 
I’ve been having a blast with the Bug Jar kit, and I love that it corresponds so nicely with the Love Jar.

These are stunning, Michele! I love the busy bugs in the second card, and the first is so sweet and colorful!
