Catching Fireflies with a Jar of Love

Stampin Up Every Day Jars and Jar of Love Card Ideas - Mary Fish StampinUp

Today’s Jar of Love card reminds me of summer nights catching fireflies as a little one.  I adore the dots of stamped “light” on the fireflies!  All stamped images are from Jar of Love Photopolymer Stamp Set.

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

  • A Crush Curry circle cropped with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies (one of My Favorite Things from the Annual Catalog) adds a little moonlight.
  • Seeing stars! I’m diggin’ how the embossed stars (Lucky Stars Embossing Folder) define the nightscape.
