Sending Love Mason Jar

Time for some Valentine's Day preparations -- soon this will be filled with dark chocolates and taken into the office to share with colleagues. I wanted to play along with the Pals Paper Arts challenge, which was to make anything *but* a card. As soon as I opened up my pack of the new Sending Love Designer Paper from the Occasions Catalog I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!

For my hanging tag, I stamped the intricate heart from my "Always" stamp set in Very Vanilla craft ink, sprinkled it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and embossed it with my trusty Heat Tool. After cutting it out, I distressed the edges with my Distressing Tool, then layered another heart stamped on a different sheet of DP behind it to give it more dimension.

Then I just started punching and layering hearts all over. For the gold heart, I took one of my "On Board Hearts" chipboard pieces, covered it in Versamark, poured Gold Stampin' Emboss powder and heat embossed it -- it's super shiny in real life.

For my lid, I simply layered circles, then stamped the new Tiny Tag stamp in Real Red and layered two hearts on top of it. The new Tiny Tag punch and Little Heart punch are also both in the Occasions catalog in the new sleeker (i.e. take up so much less space) punch design. Some sweet pink taffeta ribbon and gold cording add a finishing touch.

Thanks for looking and happy stamping!!

Beautiful, love the details. I've altered a mason jar yet, but this is great inspiration.
