Focus on Feminine

Is the Theme this week for the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge. Flowers are what I think of when you say “Feminine”, don’t you? I made a few of these for a “WOW” swap I was in (San Diego OnStage) and my Stamp Club Gals want to make it in May, plus since I haven’t posted it, I can use it for this weeks challenge, win/win/win!

I am so glad that the Jar of Love & the coordinating Framelits, Everyday Jars are in the new catalog.

I first  stamped the “a day to celebrate”, for the So In Love stamp set, with Sweet Sugarplum onto Sweet Sugarplum cardstock. Then I stamped the jar in Smoky Slate. The flowers are in Sweet Sugarplum. Since this is a two step stamp, I stamped off the solid layer and full strength for the highlights. Don’t forget to add the center in black. The leaves are stamped with Pear Pizzazz. All on Thick Whisper White cardstock, then die cut with the Everyday Jars Framelits. I colored the “water” with Pool Party Ink (in the lid) and and Clear Wink of Stella. You know I had to “wink” my flowers too.

Finished off with 2 strands of Linen Thread and a bow, and a part of a doily. Three of the flowers and the jar are snailed right to the card, the 3 smaller flowers have Dimensionals. I used Glue Dots for the leaves and tucked them under the 3 small flowers.

Don’t forget the sentiment! Its stamped in black on Thick Whisper White & used the Triple Banner Punch to make the banner end. Added with Dimensionals.
