Revisit Some Old Favourites

Hello stamping friend! Today I’m sharing a card I created for the Paper Craft Crew Design Team. This week is a sketch challenge, and thought I’d revisit some old favourites!


Revisit Some Old Favourites

I think this sketch leaves a lot open for your creativity – lets see what you come up with!


Revisit Some Old Favourites

The sentiment is from the Jar of Love stamp set, which I’ve had since it first came out. I also have the Everyday Jar Framelits, which coordinate with the stamp set. At first, I tried really hard to make this sketch work, using one of the jars from the set – but I just couldn’t get it! Finally, I decided that if I had to try that hard, it just wasn’t meant to be. So, I used the sentiment, and combined some new and old favourites, to put together this card.


First, stamp the sentiment from the Jar of Love set in Berry Burst ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Die cut it with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits. To create the Old Olive cardstock label behind it, I used my retired Tags & Labels Framelits. You could also use the newer Lots of Labels Framelits.

For the leaves, use the Leaf Punch with Pear Pizzazz cardstock to punch 2 sets of leaves. Sponge the edges with a Sponge Dauber and Old Olive ink. Next, use the retired Bird Builder Punch for the smaller leaves; again sponge the edges. Alternatively, you could use the Bouquet Bunch Framelits, or any other of the many framelits that have leaves.

To create the scallop piece, I used the Big Shot with Berry Burst cardstock and the retired Striped Scallop Thinlit Die. Again, there’s lots of options to substitute, if you don’t have this die.


Attach a strip of Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper on top of the Berry Burst scallop. I used Tear & Tape, for an easy hold with no mess.  Next, lay a length of Tear & Tape down the middle of the Perfect Party DSP, then add a strip of Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon on top of the tape.  Gather the ribbon on the left hand side; use the Mini Glue Dots to hold the gathers in place, if needed. Attach this strip to the middle of the Whisper White cardstock panel.

Now layer the sentiment oval on top of the Old Olive label, with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next, layer the sentiment on top of the strip of DSP, again with Dimensionals. Tuck the punched leaves in behind the sentiment, attaching them with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the final touch, add some Glitter Enamel Dots on the front of the card. Now you can add your front panel to a panel of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, then onto a card base of Old Olive cardstock.

    This is a lovely card, Deborah. I often try to use a specific thing and it doesn’t come out either and give up. Then the “right” idea comes to me. This one is perfect for the sketch!

      Some ‘good’ ideas just aren’t meant to be, right Susan? Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment 🙂
