I like puns. There, I said it. I do. I think they’re a hoot. Which is just one more reason for me to like the Jar of Love Bundle. Best Fishes – now come on, that’s cute. As is this fishy little card. These are not colors I would usually use together, but I saw them together in an ad and thought they looked interesting: Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, and Pumpkin Pie.


Here’s what I made:

Cute Best Fishes card made with Jar of Love Bundle by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pool Party card stock (CS) to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS to 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″

Stamped with the Jar of Love stamp set:

  • jar in Smoky Slate ink onto the 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ Whisper White CS
  • jar handle in Smoky Slate ink onto the jar
  • water in Pool Party ink onto the jar
  • fish in Pumpkin Pie ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • bow in Rich Razzleberry ink onto scrap of Whisper White CS
  • sentiment in Pool Party ink onto scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Everyday Jars Framelits:

  • fish
  • bow

Cut using the Classic Label Punch:

  • sentiment – cut close to one end of the sentiment, then reinsert the paper and cut the other end
  • Pumpkin Pie CS scrap – shorten it as above
  • Rich Razzleberry CS – leave original size

Embossed using Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF):

  • the front of the Pool Party card base

Assembled the Best Fishes card:

  • fish and bow glued onto jar image
  • stamped Whisper White CS glued to embossed front of card base
  • sentiment glued onto Pumpkin Pie CS piece
  • Pumpkin Pie CS glued onto Rich Razzleberry CS piece
  • sentiment stack glued onto card front as shown – normally I would have placed the sentiment lower, but I didn’t want to break up the large embossed area


Here’s what I used:

DID YOU KNOW the 2015-2017 In Colors will retire at the end of May? That means that they will no longer be available to order on June 1. Don’t wait until then to order them. At some point before the end of May, they will become available only while supplies last. So get what you need now.


The Designer Series Papers always retire, too. So these products won’t be available after May 31. And just like the retiring In Colors above, at some point before the end of May, these items will become available only while supplies last. Don’t wait until the last minute. Get them now!
