Five Trendy Ways with the Trendy Eucalyptus Jar Stamp & Die

 Hello friends! 

Warning: photo-heavy post

 It's my turn to share Altenew Stamp Focus over Altenew Card Blog.

I am excited to share FIVE projects with Eucalyptus Jar Stamp & Die. Eucalyptus are popular and trendy in home decor. They are also stunning as floral arrangements. Actually, my daughter chose Eucalyptus as part of the decoration for her wedding bouquet and centerpiece last year. Crafters have been incorporating Eucalyptus into their designs and art.  Altenew has stepped up and now offers Eucalyptus Jar.  It is clear to see why Eucalyptus Jar Stamp & Die truly is a must-have item.

Card #1: Miss You

111120-Altenew-Eucalyptus Jar Stamp & Die & Mask Stencil Bundle (7)

Highlights:

  1. Partial-die-cutting: thanks to the Eucalyptus Die, I was able to die cut half way of the jar. A piece of coral pattern paper was incorporated as part of the design element.
  2. Pattern paper: the Enjoy the Ride 6x6 Paper Pack makes it easy and fun to coordinate the colors and design.
  3. Light coloring:  the coloring was an easy task thanks to the Woodless Watercolor Pencils

TIPS on Partial Die -cutting: simple sandwich the TOP HALF half of die over the stamped image and run through the Mini Blossom. This step can be omitted in this project.

Card #2: I love you

Highlights:

  1. alter stamp image: use only the Eucalyptus (without the jar) for the focal point
  2. white-embossing on pattern paper: this is the easiest way to add colors and texture. No coloring needed.
  3. maximize the use of stamp: don't forget to stamp the same image for the background.

    Highlights:

    1. Slimline card: to create this simple slimline design, simply cut the card size that measures 3 1/2'x 8 1/2" or 4" x 9"
    2. White-embossing on Parchment paper: to show off all the details, this method works fabulously!
    3. Add textures:  layer a piece of the Burlap Texture Die over the jar and then make the die cut with Eucalyptus Die.
    4. Use those stand-alone dies: I added some more colors and interest by using Watercolor Garden Layering Dies.

    Card #4: Card Sets of JARS

    Highlights:

    1. Shape cards: Stamp and die cut as you would normally do, except you leave the left edge uncut (without sandwiching the left side on the jar). Once cut, trim off the excess. Light to medium weight (such as Classic Crest Solar White, 80 Lb) Card Stock  is best for this purpose.
    2: Stamp colorful images: by using stamp-positioner such as MISTI, you can easily add colors to various parts of the images.3. create multiples: you can easily create a card sets and add your own sentiment.
