Grateful Bunch and Jar of Love are sweet Thank you Card in Mint Macaron.

Summer flowers are beginning to fade.  I just noticed today that Walmart is already displaying potted fall mums here in the South!  Just a little early I think.  The weather here is stinkin’ hot.  Humid and sticky.  A few brief showers today and then it felt even more unbearable.  In the mid 90’s.

I used Mint Macaron to give this card a little breath of fresh flowers, maybe a cooler breeze!  Even the breezes have been hot this summer!  The base is Mint Macaron Card Stock with a layer of Blooms and Bliss DSP.  Then using the lovely flower stems in the Jar of Love Stamp Set I stamped them twice using Mint Macaroon.

The jar was made by using Stazon Black Ink on a window Sheet  and then using the matching jar die cut from Everyday Jar Framelits set.  Using just a drop of  the Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the sides, top and bottom I adhered the die cut positioning it over the flower stems.

Using the flower stamp from Grateful Bunch Stamp Set I used Tuxedo Black on  Very Vanilla Card Stock and then punched out the flowers using the coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch.   Using a sponge dauber and Mint Macaroon Ink Pad I smudged each flower to get just a hint of green.  The centers are Daffodil Delight using a sponge dauber.  Positioning the flowers  over the stamped stems I added dimension to two of them by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them.  The other flowers were adhered by using glue dots.

The bow is Mint Macaroon 3/8″ sheer linen ribbon and adhered using a glue dot.  The sentiment is Thanks Stamp from the Jar of Love Stamp Set stamped in Tuxedo Black on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  It was then die cut using an appropriately sized die from the Tags and Labels Set.  It was then smudged on the edge using a sponge dauber and Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The cute little Bee was stamped in Tuxedo Black on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  Die cut using the bee die from the Everyday Jar Framelits set.  I colored it using Daffodil Delight and Aqua Painter.  I gave the bee a little ‘bling’ adhering a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel to his head.

The inside of the card was finished using Very Vanilla Card Stock and placing a piece of Washi Tape form the Affectionately Yours Set across both corners.  The flowers are stamped using the two step flower from the Jug of Love Stamp Set.  The base of the flowers were stamped in Pool Party Ink.  The top layer was Mint Macaron.

  2. I also noticed Walmart displaying potted mums …. I agree with you that it’s way too early for here in the south. I am looking forward to more pleasant weather; this heat and humidity have gone on far too long for my liking. LOL Love your idea of placing the bling on your bee!! Your card is totally sweet!
