It’s once again time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Where a group of Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world share their projects and ideas with you! We have been hard at work on the August hop and are so excited to share this month’s theme: WATER!
That’s right, we are featuring OUR interpretations of the theme, water. It could be in the ocean, a beverage, weather related, or just about anything else that has to do with water. One of my favorite seasonal transitions is from Summer to Fall, and living in the United States in the state Oregon, I love the rain! I can’t wait for it! I know, most people aren’t fans of the rain, but I’m very ready for it! 🙂
The card I decided to make features a fun fish bowl in a mason jar! I wanted to blend two of my favorite sets together, Jar of Love and Sea of Textures. Jar of Love is a classic that has been with us for a little bit now. There are coordinating framelits dies to cut out the fish, jar, and so many more shapes and jar sizes!
I combined this with the brand new Sea of Textures stamp set with coordinating framelits dies, Under the Sea. I used that set to cut out the coral and background foliage. I also stamped the “thanks” from this set.
I love using Window Sheets to get a really fun 3D effect for my “fishbowl”. I stamped directly on the window sheet to make the jar, and then popped up my fish and coral using layered dimensionals. I added a few sequins to finish it off and hide the dimensionals. I love how it turned out! What do you think? Check out the video below for more details on how this came together!

Love your fish in a jar, Melissa! The window sheet makes it look so real!
What a great card! And I do love the rain, too… but sadly, we don’t get much in Southern California. Thanks for choosing such an awesome theme this month! 🙂
Amazing card design. I love all the detail in your “fish bowl” mason jar. The colors are wonderful and really bring the card design to life. 🙂
love the window sheet jar! Very clever design and colors. TFS
I love the fish in a jar design. It is so clever. This was a great theme as well.
Melissa I just love these cards! I have this die set and keep meaning to use it but never do. You’ve inspired me to dig it out and have a play! Thanks for choosing such a fantastic theme!
