IBS New Release - Mason Jar Summer Add On

This is my second post of the day.  To see the first post, please click here(Or scroll down.)  Thanks!!


Today is the first day we showcase the lovely new Inspired By Stamping May releases!  I have to say I had such fun creating with them!  We'll reveal the stamp sets themselves on May 10, the day of of the Full Reveal!

Today we are sharing projects created using the Mason Jar Summer Add On.   This is such a versatile set.

To build the "pile" of cherries, I masked the stamps several times and heat embossed them for shine as I went along, then enhanced them with alcohol markers for added shading.

I also heat embossed the lid and popped it up for dimension.

The sentiment is from IBS stamp set All Year Wishes I, which is a set of 29 stamps including two frames and several flourishes.  Talk about versatile.

I had swiped some white acrylic paint across the embossed background for a bit of a softening effect, then finished the card off with a red vintage button and some baker's twine.  Almost looks like a cherry in the corner!

Bonus: there is a cut file available for this stamp set!

And that, dear readers, is today's card for the first new stamp set release.  Make sure to check out each of the DT blogs, there is such lovely inspiration from all of the DT using the new sets:
