Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love Colorful Seasons Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Monday!  Hope your week has gotten off to a good start.

Last night I did a Facebook Live video to demonstrate the card I’m sharing with you today (I’ve included a link to it down below if you’re interested!).  I used the new Colorful Seasons stamp set with the bundled Seasonal Layers Thinlits (both available 1 June) and a little bit of Jar of Love and Everyday Jars (available right now!).  Throw in a touch of Wood Textures DSP (1 June), and…take a look-see:

I used the inspiration photo at Just Us Girls this week to inspire many of the elements of this card.

To start off, I embossed a Very Vanilla panel in the Sparkle TIEF and matted it on a piece of new Lemon-Lime Twist card stock (avail 1 June).

On the middle Very Vanilla panel, I stamped just the word “Breathe” from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, in Berry Burst Ink (also avail 1 June).

Using a piece of Wood Textures DSP, I cut the adirondack chair using the cool die in the Seasonal Thinlits die set and adhered it to the panel with a little Liquid Glue.  I stamped the tall glass image in Berry Burst (just the glass portion – it’s photopolymer so it’s easy to just ink part of the image) and cut it with the matching die.  Then I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to add a straw and popped it on with a piece of a Stampin’ Dimensional.

My flowers are all from the Jar of Love stamp set – I stamped a bunch of them in Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo and cut them with the matching die from the Everyday Jars Framelits.  I also cut two of the leaves/stems from Lemon-Lime Twist and then cut a few short pieces from them.

I stuck the leaves on the panel with Liquid Glue, and then added flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I Fast Fuse’d a Lemon-Lime Twist mat to the card front, and then popped the completed sentiment panel over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A little seed Pearl Basic Jewels Embellishment in each little flower center finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Colorful Seasons in Berry Burst on a Very Vanilla panel and then added a few flowers from Jar of Love in Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon-Lime Twist mat and into a Very Vanilla Thick card base (avail 1 June), popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Jar of Love flowers on the front…

…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Sparkle TIEF!

Et Voila!  How cool is that adirondack chair from the Seasonal Layers thinlits – especially when cut from some Wood Textures DSP!  And I just love the sentiments and images in the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  I hope you like and are adding them to your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Yesterday was Finn’s first day at Obedience School.

As we all expected…he was a star!!

Of course, he’s in a class with a 14 week old Boxer puppy (who will seriously give the Finn-ster a run for his money in the “CUTE CUTE CUTE” department!!), a 7 month old German Shepherd who is, unfortunately, in charge of both her parents, and a 4 year old German Shepherd who also has a bit of the wool pulled over his mom’s eyes.

So – the competition wasn’t stiff, y’all.

But.  Of them all – here’s how Finn decided it was best to wait for class to start.

Just chillin’.  Waiting for the teacher to come tell him he’s going to be the pet.

She used us as the example of what to do right all the way thru the class.

She did ask me at the end….now, why are you here again!?!?

Yea.  He was that good.

But then – we all knew it would be so, didn’t we?!?

    Seriously cute card and dog. That chair out of the woodgrain paper was so smart and the straw was a special touch. It’s those extras that take your cards to the next level to me! I get so many ideas from you! TFS.

  5. Kathleen VanDeVeere

    Very nice card! Often the best sentiment in many situations.
    VERY good boy, Finn! Your ole Grandma out to Colorado is SO proud of you…and of your very capable parents. Don’t you love that tucked paw? 😃

    • I do. He was watching the unruly dogs make fools of themselves!! He was kind of gobsmacked by the whole thing! Thanks much, Mom! 🙂

  6. Absolutely love every detail! From the “wooden” chair to the pretty flowers, it’s fabulous!! Sorry that I missed your live event last night, spent the evening at a never-ending PTO meeting…would much rather have been hanging out watching your live feed! 🙂

    Great card! Looks so inviting-especially the sangria – it must count as a fruit serving – lol!!? Nice job Finn – it sounds like you made your momma proud!! Have a great week!

    Well, sorry I missed the live video! I look forward to those Sunday nights with you. Sounds like you all had fun. I didn’t get back to my hotel til 8:30, and out again at 7 this morning, so haven’t watched yet. Thank you for making it available for later viewing.
    An adirondak is my favorite chair! And using the wood grain paper is brilliant. Love the card…..except for that awful lemon lime color! All the rest of you can have my share of that! I will use any other color when I CASE this.
    Finn didn’t get to be well-behaved on his own. You had a BIG share in that. Congrats on a successful first day of class. He is well on his way to being a therapy dog.

    • LOL! You challenge me to make you change your mind about LLT!! I’ve got 2 years to persuade you. 😀😀. Thanks for the words about Finn. He’s a good boy! 😊

    I plan on watching your video tomorrow …. thanks for sharing the link. This is another winner of a card! I do like that lemon-lime twist color …. it really grew on me quickly! And using that wood textures dsp for the chair is fantastic. Your hard work training Finn paid off BIG TIME!!

    What a fun card, Mary. Love your use of the Wood Textures DSP!

  14. What a fabulous card! I love your take on the inspiration photo, and how you finished the inside and made a matching envelope too! Your Finn is absolutely adorable! Thanks for joining the fun at Just Us Girls!
