Stamping Inkspirations September Blog Hop Lifetime Celebrations

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations September Blog Hop as we showcase Lifetime Celebrations. Throughout our lives there are special moments and milestones that we celebrate with our family and friends. These may be happy occasions such as birthdays, weddings or a new addition to the family or it may be to remember the loss of someone special. Today we are sharing projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own projects to celebrate these times.
Today I have decided to create a soft, elegant Sympathy card for my card design. I love the Prized Peony stamp set for creating beautiful special occasion cards. I paired it with the Birch stamp set to create the background and used Stampin' Blends Markers to color the beautiful peony image. The loss of a loved one can be a difficult time but it is also the celebration of a life. I wanted to create a card design that would provide comfort and help honor the loss of a loved one.

This beautiful card design has a wonderful vintage feeling created by sponging with Sponge Daubers. I stamped the Very Vanilla stitched rectangle with the Birch stamp set using Gray Granite Classic ink and sponged the layer with Crumb Cake Classic ink. I also sponged the outside edge of the front of the card base with Crumb Cake Classic ink to create a vintage look. The image was stamped with Gray Granite Classic ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and I colored the peony with Light and Dark Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends Markers and the leaves with the Light and Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Markers. I die cut the image with the coordinating die and attached it to the stitched rectangle layer with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon around the bottom of the stitched rectangle layer. For the sentiment label, I heat embossed the image with Gold Embossing Powder onto the Very Vanilla label punched out with the Label Me Fancy Punch. I attached the sentiment label over the top of the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals. I attached the stitched rectangle layer to the Soft Sea Foam scalloped rectangle layer and attached it to the Crumb Cake card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. For a touch of bling, I added Basic Rhinestone jewels to finish off the design. This pretty card design would work well as a special birthday card or for a wedding card. I love the beautiful images and sentiments in the Prized Peony stamp set and it is one of my go to stamp sets for special occasions.
