Someone just took the lid off the jar and set it out on the porch for the fireflies to escape into the night. Today I’m sharing another card I made recently with the Jar of Love bundle. The Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies are available separately, but why not get both and save 10%?

Fireflies You light up my Life card made with Jar of Love Bundle by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • So Saffron card stock (CS) to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Bermuda Bay CS to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Night of Navy CS to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper (DSP) to 3-3/4″ x ___

Stamped with the Jar of Love stamp set:

  • fireflies in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White CS
  • jar in Basic Gray ink onto a Window Sheet
  • sentiment in Versamark ink onto Night of Navy CS, making sure it will be above where the DSP will be (see sentiment details below)

Die cut using the Everyday Jars Framelits:

  • fireflies
  • jar, then I inked the edges with Basic Gray ink, to help it show up better

Cut using the 1/2″ Circle Punch:

  • one circle per firefly from a scrap of So Saffron CS

Embossed the sentiment:

  • dusted Night of Navy CS with Embossing Buddy
  • stamped sentiment in Versamark ink
  • sprinkled of White Stampin’ Emboss Powder
  • used Heat Tool to set the powder

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • firefly backsides in So Saffron
  • firefly bodies in Basic Black

Assembled the card:

  • DSP glued onto the bottom of Night of Navy CS
  • So Saffron circles glued onto Night of Navy CS, where you want the fireflies
  • fireflies glued onto circles and Night of Navy CS
  • jar adhered using Fast Fuse around the edges
  • Night of Navy CS glued onto Bermuda Bay CS
  • Bermuda Bay CS glued onto card base
