Customer Jar of Thanks…

As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator showing appreciation to my customers for each order is important to me…so each time they order, I try to think of something to make for them to enjoy.  This month I’m giving each a “Jar of Thanks”…


Awww…isn’t that cute?  Hopefully they will use this on the front of a card or gift, or maybe just set it up on their desk.  Just a small reminder of how much I appreciate their business…



I first saw this idea on Becky Roberts blog “Inking Idaho”.  She makes fantastic projects.  Even though she didn’t give directions, I found these fairly easy (like REALLY easy) to make.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizazz Cardstock
  • Ink:  StazOn Black, Flirty Flamingo
  • Stamps:  Jar of Love
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Window Sheet, Lots of Jars Framelits, confetti (I used the hearts border punch plus some Paper Pumpkin confetti left over), but SU! does have a Confetti Punch!


  • Cut jar from Thick Whisper White for back.
  • Stamp jar in Smoky Slate on Thick Whisper White.  Cut inside of jar out with framelit.
  • Stamp handle in Smoky Slate and cut out with Framelit.
  • Stamp jar lid and flower in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with framelit.
  • Cut small leaf from Pear Pizazz with Framelit.
  • Stamp jar on Window Sheet with StazOn Black ink.  Cut jar from Window Sheet with framelit.  Stamp sentiment “thanks” on jar with StazOn Black ink.  Let dry.
  • Glue stamped window sheet to jar with cut out center with multipurpose glue.
  • Run strip adhesive around the back edges of jar.  Fill center with confetti of your choice, remove safety cover from adhesive strip and add jar cut in first step.
  • Glue lid to top of jar with multipurpose glue.
  • Glue handle with multipurpose glue.
  • Add leaf with glue dot and flower with dimensional.
  • Tie bow on handle with Linen Thread.

This would be a cut card front or scrapbook page feature or with a small easel added to the back it could sit up on a desk.  Oh! I just thought of something cute that can be made with these shaker jars.  Goodness, I’ve got to get back in my studio and make that…stay tuned!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…have a great rest of the weekend and I’ll see you on Monday.



Get yourself inky…Be HaPpY!


Summer’s Flowers…

Just for the record…this stamp set (Jar of Love) is awesome.  Here’s a post with some summer flowers for you…


and an inside peek…


I just can’t stop using this set.  And, today my Christmas order will be delivered and there’s a Christmas jar stamp set!  I’m so excited…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder, Pear Pizazz and Thick Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Pear Pizazz, Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, White Craft Ink and Baked Brown Sugar
  • Stamps:  Jar of Love and Painter’s Palatte
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Lace Trim, Everyday Jars Framelits


  • Crumb Cake base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • The Watermelon Wonder layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with adhesive.
  • The Crumb Cake top layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Stamp jars in Smoky Slate.  I used the medium and small jars.  Stamp water in each with Pool Party.  Add Linen Thread bow stamp to small jar with Baked Brown Sugar.  Add burlap band to medium jar in Baked Brown Sugar stamped off once.  Stamp “hello” in Watermelon Wonder over burlap band.  Stamp burlap on post it note and cut out for a mask.  Place mask over band and stamp just the lower portion of the leaves stem three times.  Remove mask.  On the small jar you can stamp over the bow.  Cut out with framelit.
  • Stamp the “swish” from Painter’s Palette twice at the bottom in Baked Brown Sugar for your jars to sit on.
  • Note where you want to place medium jar and stamp several of the smaller leave branch in Craft White Ink to create a background for your flowers in that jar.  Let dry.
  • On a scrap of Whisper White stamp several flowers in Pool Party/Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo/Watermelon Wonder plus several leaf stems in Pear Pizazz.  Cut out with framelits.  Cut four of the small leaves from Pear Pizazz Cardstock.
  •   The medium jar was glued in place and the smaller jar is on dimensionals.  Cut most of the stems off and use multipurpose glue to add leaves to each jar.  You should already have stems in your jar.  Now place your flowers where you like them…some with glue and others with dimensionals.  Add two of these glued together on the small jar and inside on that small jar.
  • Add a piece of lace trim at bottom and attach on back of layer.  Add this layer to card front with glue.
  • The inside layers are 4-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ Watermelon Wonder and 4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ Whisper White.  Stamp small jar like on front.  The flower was “fussy cut” as there is no framelit for it.  Don’t forget your “swish” for the jar to sit on.

Hope you will give this card a try and add your own touches and that you will love it.

You won’t regret it…

Are you HaPpY?  Get inky!



Holiday Jars of Love…

Now I know there are people all over this country who use Mason jars for canning.  But here in the South we use them for everything…iced tea and lemonade, flower vases, trinket holders, organizing…well, you get the picture.

So when I first saw the Jars of Love stamp set WITH the matching framelits, they couldn’t get here fast enough.

So yesterday I used this set for the “Best Fishes” card which I adore.  Today let’s do a little holiday cheer in a jar…


I know there are a lot of jars there, but I couldn’t stop.  Here’s a peek at the inside…
