Jar of Love from Stampin’ Up for #GDP082

I am using my favourite set today, Jar of Love.  I simply adore it and I hear it is carrying over into the new catalogue so that is a whole another year to share ideas and inspiration using this set.  This week at the Global Design Project we have a sketch challenge.
Jar of Love for Global Design ProjectMy card is made using heavy weight whisper white cardstock and has no layers, I simply masked a line on the card front and stamped the two separate areas of the card separately.

I used the Diagonal Stripe background stamp to create the stripes in Pink Pirouette Ink and then stamped the flowers from the Jar of Love stamp set using Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the flower off first to create a lighter shade for the whole flower then stamped the flower centre using the Flirty Flamingo ink without stamping off first.

I filled the gaps with the leaves and hearts using versa mark and heat embossed in Silver Embossing powder.

I added a sliver glimmer paper strip down the card to separate the two stamping styles.
I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sentiments in the seasonal catalogue using versa mark ink and heat embossed in silver too.  I used the label framelits to cut out the greeting and simply stuck it in place with dimensionals.
