Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Wreath for The Card Concepts.

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Fall Fun.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle and some new Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (coming in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog) for my Clean & Layered card. I was inspired by the beautiful fall colors along with the sunflowers in the vase and the apples.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #162.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous new Heart & Home DSP to an Old Olive mat. I adhered the layered panel to a Cajun Craze card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sunflower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and colored the image in using my Bumblebee and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers. I fussy cut the sunflowers using my Paper Snips. Using the Festive Finishes Dies, I cut multiple apples from a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.

I cut the leaf wreath from a panel of Old Olive cardstock using my Seasonal Swirls Dies. I cut the swirly wreath from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock using the Painted Labels Dies. I didn’t want the solid center in the swirly wreath so I used the circle that fit the best from the Layering Circles Dies and cut it out. I layered the wreaths together the way I liked and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals where I would be putting the flowers and the apples. I made a multi loop bow from a length of Linen Thread and adhered it to the wreath. I adhered the sunflowers over the bow and the apples randomly on the wreath. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink and cut it into a banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment tucking it under the flowers.

On the inside I stamped the swirly wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of the wreath. I randomly stamped the trio leaves image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee and Old Olive Inks and adhered a few more of the apples I had cut out from the Festive Finishes Dies. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio leaf image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee, Cajun Craze and Old Olive Inks on the bottom of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Heart & Home DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!


I was given a heads up yesterday that the internet was down at work and all the transactions for the day had to be done manually.

Hopefully if I can’t go live today, I’ll be back next week. Gotta love technology!!
