Mama Elephant Designer Series Jar of Hearts

Hello crafty friends! Davina here, to share a sweet slimline card I made using lots of beautiful Mama Elephant products. my Designer Series project I couldn’t resist using the wonderful new Jar of Hearts stamps and Creative Cuts. I especially love the delicate bow and detailed lid, and how the dies cut them so perfectly and remove the little parts in the loops. 

I decided to try and create a little gingerbread village across a slimline scene, and I only wish it had enough room for a sentiment on the front. Even though I couldn’t fit a sentiment on the cover, I really love how this candy cane lane. 

I started by stamping out the jar, bow and lid 3 times. I heat embossed the lid on a shimmery cream paper that I gently inked the edges after die cutting. I also die cut 3 snow drifts using the jar die, and gently inking those with a very light blue. 

I stamped and heat embossed some little houses and trees from Little Agenda Houses and a few cute cutie gingerbread men from Little Agenda Gingerbread onto Kraft cardstock. Then built my little jar scenes. After lining them up on the Slim Film City scallop layers I added some candy cane and gumdrop images that I stamped from Holiday Huggers and again the Little Agenda Gingerbread sets. I colored everything in shades of pink and added some sparkle from a Wink of Stella glitter pen. 

I really love combining lots of sets and using them in unique ways. And if these little gingerbread jars don’t convince you to grab your Jar of Hearts stamp set and fill them to your hearts content, then I don’t know what will. I hope I’ve inspired you, just a little bit, with this card and that you make some gingerbread homes of your own. Thank you for stopping by,
