Falling Flowers for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Birthday Blog Hop

Banner stating, "Amy's Inkin' Krew Birthday Theme Blog Hop, July 12, 2016."

Today the theme for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop is birthday. I have chosen to feature Falling Flowers stamp set from Stampin’ up.

Nice cool watermelon. I’m not a fan of the heat and the very thought of watermelon helps me think cool, and is the inspiration for this birthday card.

The flourish was stamped on both panels of whisper white at the same time.  I knew that I wanted the final placement of the smaller white panel to be one half inch from the top and and one half inch from the left side of the larger white panel, I used my rule and Stampin’ Up Grid paper to line up the panels. I then used a post-it note (placed on the lower left side of the smaller panel) to keep the two pieces in place while I stamped the flourish in Watermelon Wonder.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of whisper white using the Rose Wonder stamp set. Dimensionals were used to adhere the sentiment badge and rhinestones were added for a touch of bling.

Interior of the card stamped with three flowers in Watermelon Wonder color ink.

Two of the individual flower shapes in the Falling Flowers stamp set were used to add a bit of interest to the interior panel of the card.

Jar of Love

Jar of Love

A few years ago, while working in Birmingham, Alabama, I left a banquet with a very special colleague from California. Suddenly she became very excited when she realized that she was witnessing fireflies in action for the very first time. Since that time, I no longer take them for granted and each summer night as I watch them dance around my yard here in the North Georgia Mountains, I have so smile.

When I saw the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelits bundle, I just had to order it.
