First I created a shaker filled with both stamped flowers and sequins. With some flowers stamped inside, the jar appears more full, even if the sequins are pooled at the bottom.
After determining the jar placement, I masked off that section with removable tape then stamped random flowers within. I adhered the foam shape, added a sprinkling of sequins and white flower toppings then adhered the acetate. Before gluing the jar and lid die-cuts, I sponged the bottom of the jar with a bit of blue ink.
I added some texture to the background by scoring vertical lines every ¼”. Then I tied the string and added the stamped tag. The strip of dotted paper was added after die-cutting just the bottom of the jar from one edge, then neatly snuggled up to the foam shape. Beneath, I stamped a row of hearts.
I adhered a few sequins outside of the jar then created a small heart from one of the flower sequins as follows:
I nipped off two of the petals just above the hole. This creates the top of the heart. Then from the remaining (leftover) piece, I cut a small triangle from one of the petals. Once fitted together beneath the string, the two pieces create the appearance of a heart.
On my next card, I created a bit of a garden scene, stamping two of the stems and leaves from the stamp set in two different shades of green, bending each slightly in different directions.
After stamping the flowers, I adhered the panel to a block of gray dotted paper from Flirty Florals (included in the kit). The tag was die-cut from the same gray dotted paper then stamped and tied on with gray twine. As a final touch, I adhered iridescent rhinestones (also included in the kit) into the centers of some of the flowers then adhered the assembled panel to my card base. Super easy! : )
