Stamp Review Crew: Jar of Love Edition

Posted by on August 14, 2016

Jar of Love

It’s time again for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop! This time we are featuring the Jar of Love Stamp Set. You may have just arrived from Debra Burgin’s Blog, or if you are going backwards from Tanya Boser’s Blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click the link to the Stamp Review Crew to take you to the master list.

I wanted to get this stamp set as soon as I saw it for a couple of reasons. First, well, they are MASON jars. Second, I knew that it would be perfect to make a jar of honey for Rosh Hashanah, which is what I have for you today. I printed the sentiment in Hebrew. It says “Shana Tova U’Metuka” which translates to a good and sweet year. I made the background dots with the small circle included in the stamp set. (Truthfully, I didn’t even know it was there and it was perfect!) They are supposed to be reminiscent of apples.

For my second card with this set, I used the fireflies. I love fireflies and we don’t have them here in Southern California. To make the fireflies, I first sponged on Whisper White Craft Ink. When that dried I stamped the firefly on top in black. Then I colored the tail with the Crushed Curry Marker and finished it off with Clear Wink of Stella on top.

    Cute cards, Yapha. Your first one is very creative and clever! I love the second card. We have tons of fireflies in South Carolina. Our grandkids have so much fun catching them. Your card reminded me of that!
