Today's card is a simple, stamped card using the Jar of Love stamp set from Stampin' Up's 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. I also used one of my favorite, but RETIRING punches- the Decorative Label punch. I used the Decorative Label punch three ways- can you spot all 3?
How To Make This Hand Stamped Card:
I started this card with a simple card base of Tangerine Tango cardstock.
On a layer of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the jar image from the Jar of Love stamp set using Basic Gray ink. Then I add the 'water' in the jar with Soft Sky ink.
Before stamping the stems, I grabbed a piece of scrap paper to use as a mask to cover the water in the jar so I wouldn't see the stems at the bottom of the jar. Then with Pear Pizzazz ink I stamped the leaves and flower stems inside the jar.
The flowers from the Jar of Love stamp set were then stamped with Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango ink.
The Decorative Label punch was used to punch two labels- one was cut in half and used at the corners of the Whisper White layer. The pieces were adhered to the stamped layer and then both layers were adhered to the card front.
To add the greeting:
As shown in the image below, the second punch out was used to mat the greeting, which was stamped with Tangerine Tango ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then punched with the Decoratvie Label punch once- just above the greeting, and then it was put back in the punch with the top stick out and punched again. This left a bit of an odd edge on the sides, which I just trimmed with Paper Snips.
I then added the greeting to the front of the stamped jar image.
