International Blog Highlight August 2020

International Blog Highlight August 2020

What an exciting event we have to show you today! Demonstrators from all around the world have chosen to take part in an International Blog Highlight for August 2020
 
This is such a great way to get to know other Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world, and see some incredible projects using current Stampin’ Up!® Product. 
 
The ongoing theme for the International Blog Hop is – Thank you!
 
Many don’t take the time to thank the ones that they love the most for the simple things that they do for them each day or big things that they have done recently. It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

Gather Together

I used a couple of stamp sets on my project, Celebrate Sunflowers, and Gather Together (a returning favorite from 2019) Stamp Sets.  I also used the Christmas Layers Dies (not just for Christmas) with some Cinnamon Cider cardstock. 

My project is mounted on an 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4″.  My second layer is a piece of Early Espresso cardstock cut at 4-1/8″ X 5-3/4″.  The  In Good Taste Designer Series Paper is cut at 4″ X 5-1/4″.  I used one of the beautiful and thing Gold Hoops, which I adhered over my In Good Taste DSP with some “rolled up” Mini Glue Dots.  I added my cut Cinnamon Cider piece and also added it with some rolled up Mini Glue Dots.

I stamped the sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set with some Early Espresso Classic ink.  I used Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to color it in.  I also stamped my pumpkin image from the Gather Together Stamp Set with some Early Espresso ink, and color it in with the same colors as my sunflower.  I added my images with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used two strands of Linen Thread to create my bow and added it to the top of my Gold Hoops with some Mini Glue Dots. 

I stamped my sentiment with Early Espresso Ink on a 1/2″ X 3″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and flagged it on the right side.  I added my sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I sprinkled some Metallic Pears (in gold).  Now it was time to move on to the inside of my project.

I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together Stamp Set with some Cinnamon Cider Classic ink.  I also stamped another small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set with Early Espresso ink and colored it the same way I did on the front of my card.  I added the sunflower image with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.
