Inky Friends New Annual Catalog Recap and Supply Lists

Wasn't that an amazing blog hop? Wow. I have some talented demonstrator friends! That is why I keep being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I love the relationships I've formed by attending events, swapping, and online.

Ok, enough sappiness. It's time to share my projects with new details. Here are all the stamps in the set:

First up-- the jars.

For this jar, I used the new Starburst Punch to punch a Real Red topper for my jar. I also stamped the triple heart stamp in Real Red to add some texture. On the Pacific Point Belly Band, I used the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add that Fourth of July feel. The little hearts come from the Everyday Jars Framelits. I just used mini glue dots to adhere them.

The other jar has a Real Red belly band and a tag that uses the Pretty Label Punch for the back layer and a 1 1/4" Circle Punch for the inside layer.  I added the same hearts as the other jar and added some Metallic Enamel Shape hearts for extra flair. To make the tag, I stamped the jar and then scored my paper so that the jar top was just below the jar framelit top when I cut the folded piece in the Big Shot. That way, the tag can flip open. it was folded. I added the Garden Green heart pattern to the top of the jar. One of the Circles Framelits was the perfect size. Green Heart Pattern? Oh yes! I found it in the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper! perfect for this project!

This card uses Crumb Cake as a base, which I love paired with Soft Sky or Pool Party. The background paper is from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. I love the versatility of Stampin' Up! products. The wood shelf uses a 1/2" strip of the Wood Textures paper. The classic label punch is the perfect size for these sentiments. I added some Glitter Enamel Dots, cut a strawberry out of an extra stamped image. The ladybug was hand cut with my handy dandy paper snips. The Soft Sky Mini Chevron ribbon is a subtle touch under the sentiment.
This card is very self-explanatory once you see all three pictures. But it's a WOW card when you first see it live.  the base is a regular 4 1/4" by 11 half of a cardstock sheet. Instead of scoring in half, you score at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2".  I then cut the circle you can see in the bottom right photo using my Big Shot, centering the circle on the score line. I used my Circles Framelits to cut out the butterflies and the scalloped circle. I then adhered it halfway on the bottom flap, so that it fit in the circle. I used the Bunch of Banners Framelits to cut the banner and stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy. I added some Glitter Enamel Dots, too. I just can't get enough of those!  The paper is from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. The little mini scallop piece was punched out of Calypso Coral using the new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. I just hid the loopy side to show the scallop side. 

This color combination came from my Virtual Open House where I asked which were the best new In Color Color Combinations. My niece Mekaela chose this combination and I love it. 

The final card uses the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set for the flowers. This set definitely has many possibilities that doesn't just limit it to birthdays. This card is proof of that:

I used a strip of the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper on the left side of this card. I thought about using the Decorative Ribbon Punch for a border between the jar and the Designer Series Paper, but opted instead for the straight line. I didn't want to distract from my jar. I stamped on Watercolor Paper and then brushed my aquapainter over the bold flowers a little bit. The jar was done with Tranquil Tide and my aquapainter. The green was actually Old Olive but it does look a little like Lemon Lime Twist. I made the puffy flowers Powder Pink, so I added a Power Pink Watercolor base. I just don't like my jars to be floating in air! My final touch was adding Glitter Enamel Dots to the centers. I chose the palest pink ones and they sparkle in real life.

Whew! I hope you like the cards I created. I am thrilled to be able to share them with you. If you want to shop or look more at the products, the links are below.
