Instructions

  1. Prepare Your Cardstock: cut/trim/score all cardstock and/or DSP as described above

  2. Stamp the large jar with Basic Gray ink on white cardstock (Layer #3)

  3. Stamp the bouquet of flowers with Basic Gray at the top of the jar

  4. Stamp the stems inside the jar with Shaded Spruce ink -- first, ink the stamp, stamp the full strength ink on a scrap paper, and stamp the 2nd generation inside the jar

  5. Stamp the reverse side of the smaller jar with Pool Party ink to create the water inside the jar -- first, ink the stamp, stamp the full strength ink on a scrap paper, and stamp the 2nd generation inside the jar

  6. Color the bouquet of flowers with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers

  7. Give the large flowers a little bit of glitz with Wink of Stella

  12. Trim and adhere the sentiment with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

  13. Adhere the Melon Mambo cardstock (Layer #1) to the cardbase with Foam Adhesive Sheets or Stampin' Dimensionals (NOTE: I use the adhesive sheets because it is super easy to cut a sheet to size and quickly apply to the cardstock)

  14. Adhere the Pool Party cardstock (Layer #2) to the Melon Mambo cardstock with the adhesive of your choice

  15. Adhere the White cardstock (Layer #3) with your stamped images, bow, and sentiment, to the Pool Party cardstock (Layer #2)
