TE December Petite-a-Palooza Whimsical Wishes

All of the new stamps and dies are available in the Taylored Expressions Fresh Out of the Oven Department!

Today I’m using another new stamp set from Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line called Love Bugs. This set is SO cute! It features a glass jar with a fabric lid cover and two adorable little fire flies.

Love Bugs by Jen Shults

To start my card I stamped the glass jar on Choice Snow White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the jar and bugs with Copic markers. Next I stamped the lid and colored the metal portion of the lid with Copics. I paper pieced the fabric using MME’s Six by Six Happy Day paper. I die cut the jar and lid using the matching dies and then added a bit of diamond Stickles to the fireflies.

For my layout I used Deconstructed Sketch 29. I used the Small Scalloped Border die for the edge detail. I sponged everything with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and distress it a bit. The ribbon is American Crafts and the buttons are just from my stash. When I assembled the card I popped the jar up on foam tape and the lid on a second piece of foam tape. The sentiment on the tag is from the Many Mini’s Holidays stamp set.


While I was coloring this jar I recorded a video so you can see how I used the Copics. There’s a fair bit of coloring covered by the lid to the jar. 🙂 You can find the video in my YouTube Channel.

That’s it for me today! I hope you’ve enjoyed this week of previews!!! Please hop around and see what our fantastic Baker’s Dozen Designers have in store for you!
