Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Celebrate

Hello and welcome,

It's Stamping 2nd Sunday latest blog hop for September, hosted by Sara Levin and for this month the design team will be showcasing the theme 'Celebrate' in our projects. The list of participants will be at the end of this blog.

Today's projects are two handmade cards using Stampin' Up! products from the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration August - September 2021 and Annual 2021 - 2022 Catalogues. I've created a casual card and avid card using the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set which is a Saleabration product and is available until the end of this month or unless sold out.

Casual Crafter

I've used Create with Friends Stamp Set, the elegant font has many possibilities for sentiments and combined with the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set is the perfect match for my casual card.

I've started with Basic White Cardstock for the background panel, stamping the smaller flower multiple times in Magenta Madness and Mango Melody Ink.

I also stamped the flower and leaves images onto Basic White Cardstock and fussy cut out to arrange on the panel. Before I layered the pieces down I added Magenta Madness ombre ribbon, using White Faux Linen Ribbon and applied ink with the Blending Brush. I cased this idea off Tami Hewlett, she made a beautiful Night of Navy ombre ribbon awhile ago and I loved this idea.

The greeting is layered over the stamped images using Stampin' Dimensionals and the card base is Magenta Madness Cardstock.

Avid Crafter

For my second card I've used the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set with a number of different products. The large Dahlia is stamped in Mango Melody Ink this was my starting point and I wanted it to pop against the other colours and papers.

I've stamped the smaller flower stamp in Mango Melody a number times onto Basic White Cardstock panel and I've lightly added ink in the same colour using the Blending Brush. 

I've used a strip of the Harvest Meadow DSP in Bumblebee and a strip of Black & White Gingham paper from the Pattern Party DSP. 

The yellow polka dot embossed tag die adds more texture and I just had to add the Black & White Gingham Ribbon to the tag. 

The sentiment is from Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set using White Emboss Powder on Basic Black Cardstock and fussy cut out. I always love to add lots layers and different elements when it comes to card making.
