Welcome! It's time for another great blog hop! Our September Paper Crafting Blog Hop theme is "Happy Birthday". This hop features a group of talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you featuring our theme this month, so be sure to stop at each of our blogs. You may have arrived from Krissi's blog. She had a fun project!
Who wouldn't love a bunch of flowers for their birthday?
When I think of the end of summer, I always
think of sunflowers. So, when the September blog hop theme was birthday, I just
knew I had to bring out my JAR OF FLOWERS stamp set, JAR punch and MASON JAR shaker
domes. And best of all, I have a friend who is having a birthday party this
week. And a hand-delivered card makes a perfect time
to use the shaker domes!
Since I wanted the beautiful bunch of flowers to
be my focal point, I chose to use a light color of ink (Sahara Sand) to stamp
my flower and stem images. Then I just had to use the STAMPIN’ BLENDS alcohol
markers because they blend so nicely and make shading so easy---even for
The LINEN THREAD and green and gold/silver
sequins from the SEQUINS FOR EVERY SEASON pack, as well as the coloring of the
inside of the shaker dome with a STAMPIN’ BLENDS marker (Pool Party), add great
additional touches to make a super special card.
When I was
making this card, I knew I wanted to make it look like the jar of flowers was
sitting on a table. The IN GOOD TASTE Designer Series Paper has such great
textures and is perfect to mimic a table in front of a wall. Take a
look at my tip in this grapic and at the close up picture above for the full effect.
As lovely as the JAR OF FLOWERS stamp set is, it
doesn’t include sentiments. I used the wonderful IN YOUR WORDS stamp set. This
set is an Aug-Sep 2021 Sale-A-Bration limited edition host only set which has many fun
greetings including a great “Happy Birthday” stamp! (Hurry to get yours as it is only available until September 30, 2021).
I hope this fun "sunny" card has inspired you. I truly enjoyed making it!
