Hi there Queen & Company fans!
Michele here today. I’m super excited to be sharing my first two samples using the new Love Jar kit. I know I’ve said this before, but it’s my new favorite! (Really, it is!) The kit includes one of my most beloved paper pads – Flirty Florals, jar dies with two stitched tags, NINE pre-cut foam and acetate shapes, a lovely stamp set filled with hearts, flowers, stems, leaves and sentiments, five colors each of twine and rhinestones, flower sequins and, of course, super-cute toppings! There are six colors of tiny flower shapes, clear diamonds (another of my favorites) and adorable teeny tiny wood circles, stars and hearts! Oh my. So much love.
To create my first card, I used removable tape to mask off a small section for sponging light blue ink inside the jar. I stamped the flowers, stems and leaves then adhered the jar foam shape. Inside, I placed some white flowers, clear diamonds and wood hearts.
After adhering the acetate, I die-cut the jar and jar top from white card stock and the little frill of scalloped trim from pink gingham. Once the jar was assembled, I die-cut and stamped the cute heart tag and tied to the jar with pink twine. I used three tiny hearts along the left side as an extra embellishment.
Next, I used the stamps to create my own patterned paper, using white flower toppings as flower centers. The sentiment was stamped onto black cardstock using white ink, then white embossed.
Within the bag of mixed flower sequins, there are itty bitty circles from the sequin centers. I used a sprinkling of them on my card to add bits of colorful shine. I applied a tiny dot of glue then used a Quickstick (any tacky ended tool will do) to place the tiny sequin piece in the glue.
In addition to the Love Jar kit, refill foam and acetate shapes are available.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
