June/July 2012 Release Day 2

Welcome back! It's day 2 of our June/July Release and we have another sweet set and die to share with you. I am so glad to hear how much you all are enjoying the samples the Design Team and I have to share. If you are just joining us, you can catch up here.

Today's set is a wonderfully complimentary set to Fresh Picked. Still centered around berries and puns, but on a smaller scale. But don't worry, Fresh Preserves is still packed with fun.

Fresh Preserves

  • is a 4x6 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • 17 high quality photo-polymer stamps; 1 jar image, 1 filler image, 1 label image, 8 berry building images in two sizes, and 6 sentiments that fit inside of the label
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $14

Preserves Jar Die

  • coordinates with the Fresh Picked stamp set
  • three separate dies wired together that can be easily snipped and separated
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $8

Fresh Preserves speaks loud and clear to the "country bumpkin" that lives deep, deep...deep...d.e.e.p. down inside of me.

This is the perfect way to show off this cute stamp set and die! The wonderful thing about these products is that they can be used together or alone. Here, I've used them together. I die cut the jar and label and filled the little jar using the "filling" stamp included in Fresh Preserves. I then added the label and "Thanks so berry much" sentiment. You'll find some of the same sentiments from Fresh Picked scaled to fit inside the label included in this set. This jar also has a lid, however, you could opt not to use it as I've done here. I've added cute little embossing to the rim to emulate the "threads" on the mouth of a jar.

To create that old vintage looking patterned paper, I started by stamping the large strawberries and leaf cluster from Fresh Picked onto our Oatmeal cardstock. The flowers were added from Folk Art Florals in versamark, and then heat embossed using White Detail powder. To emphasize the flowers, I distressed the panel using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.

I added some embossing using the Chevron Impression Plate and the "You are just the sweetest!" sentiment from Fresh Picked, some stitching and some twine...done.

And then, of course I was all feeling confident and decided to try some shabby-chic again.

This set made it so easy! I loved die cutting the images from patterned paper. I used some beautiful Webster's Pages paper that Ms. Kerrianne Gwin gave me, and it was perfect for the job. Since all of the papers were so light, I wanted to give the jar a little something darker to rest on. I stamped a Kraft panel using Defining Words in Versamark. I added my sentiment and raspberry (both from Fresh Preserves) to the label by stamping off once. Ink the stamp, stamp once onto scratch paper, and then stamp onto your project without re-inking. This gives it that soft tone.

I added another little sentiment, also included in the set, to a little tag die cut with our Timeless Tags die. And stamped another sentiment from Fresh Picked in the corner.

And because it wouldn't be shabby-chic without a ton of distressing and extra "stuff", I added some here and there!

So, of course, you don't have to go all out. Sure it's fun. But a good, simple and graphic card is always nice to have. And much more cost effective for creating gift sets of cards. I've included an outline image of the jar in Fresh Preserves as well. It is not sized to stamp onto the die cut. It is meant for creating one layer cards, or if you want to fill the jar with something (hint, hint) and color with copics.

Super simple! And it kind of reminds me of some of the letterpress cards...without the letterpress that is.

That is all I have for today. But I will be back tomorrow with more! Anddon't forget to stop by the Design Team's blogs. They all have previews to share with you right now.
