Today the Stamp Review Crew is delighted to share ideas for the Hearts a Flutter stamp set with you! This hop is a fabulous way to get many ideas on getting the most mileage from this set and in my mind, the Hearts a Flutter Framelits are an essential companion to the set so you will see me using both of these.
This first image is one that I shared with on Instagram over the weekend...any guess what my project is from this view?
It is a birthday jar! With all due credit I must say that the idea for this came from Sandra Conner a fellow Stampin' Pretty Pal and fellow Pals Paper Arts Design Team member who shared a jar on her blog over the holidays. I needed somethiung special for sending birthday wishes to one of my aunts and decided a birthday jar would work beautifully!
The jar contains a birthday wishes on a small piece of cardstock that could double as a bookmark. The brand new Scallop Tag Topper punch was used for this. The bottom right image above is a "scroll" wrapped in a doily and this scroll contains a longer birthday message.
The Hearts a Flutter stamps were used to create a background design on the bookmark and the scroll. I did use the Hearts a Flutter Framelits to cut out a few hearts and both the scroll and the bookmark were embellished with these.
For those who are regular readers of Peonies and Paper Chains, you may be wondering if I used a kit for today. Yes, I did! There is no interuption to kit week here on the blog! The buttons, sequins, doily, and Baker's Twine that you see above all came from the Mini Memories Simply Created Album Kit -- they are pieces that I did not use on the album (and I'll be sharing the album tomorrow).
What do you think of the overall jar? The front has been adorned with a large tag that was created using a few cuts from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits, including a cut of the solid heart from the stamp set. Once again the baker's twine and button are extra from the Mini Memories Simply Created Album Kit. You may have also noticed the new Watercolor Washi Tape and a cut from the new Gold Foil sheet...love these items!
From the back side of the jar, you can see the scroll and some of the contents, including some really tasty Tazo Green Ginger Tea. There is also a bit of confetti and a few balloons. The significant piece of the gift is the birthday message itself.
A jar like this could also be used as a shower, Valentine's, or get well gift. You could also create one as a heartfelt "I'm thinking of you" or "miss you" gift for a friend. Lots of possibilities! You may want to consider a wide mouth mason jar if you can find one as it will be easier to fill...shh...don't tell my aunt, I simply grabbed one from our cabinet and only have the standard size on hand.
