Hi everyone! Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards I created with Queen & Company’s adorable new Bug Jar kit. The kit ingredients work well on their own, or perfectly with my favorite, the Love Jar kit. The Bug Jar kit includes 30 stamps, 16 dies and 11 collections of the cutest little bug toppings!
To create my first card, I used the jar and lid die from the Love Jar kit, with patterned papers from Birthday Bashpaper pad. Inside the jar, I placed cute tiny bee toppings along with some blue flowers from the Love Jar kit.
I stamped, colored and die-cut several bees, attaching two to the shaker window using Sheer Glue. The glue was placed behind the body portion only so the wings were free to bend forward just a bit. I adhered a third bee over a stamped dotted trail and tucked the last one just inside the jar lid. He’s looking for a quick escape. :) Lastly, I tied a bit of yellow twine (from the Love Jar kit) around the jar lid.
I kept my second card very simple, using only stamps and dies from the Bug Jar kit. After stamping the branch and leaves, I added a bit of shadow using light gray markers to create dimension. The caterpillar was stamped, colored then die-cut and adhered above the branch.
I stamped the cute sentiment beneath the branch then adhered the completed panel over Fruit Basket patterned paper.
I see the Bug Jar kit quickly becoming one of my favorites. I adore the sentiments and bugs!
Thanks so much for visiting today!
