ICS March Blog Hop My Favorite Bundle

Welcome to the ICS March Blog Hop as we showcase our favorite bundles from Stampin' Up! There are so many wonderful bundles to choose from and our Design Team Members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you and spark your creativity.
When I found out the theme for this month's hop, I was so excited because it coincided with the Savings Are In Bloom and one of my favorite bundles was a returning favorite as part of this promotion. The Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle has beautiful stamp image and sentiments as well as coordinating dies perfect for creating wonderful projects. With the terrible attacks on the Ukraine, I wanted to create a card to show support for the people of this amazing country and this bundle had just what I needed for my card design.

To create this card design, I wanted to use the retiring 2020-2022 In Colors. The patterns in the 6"x6" Designer Series Paper were perfect for stamping my images onto and die cutting them to create my design. For the sunflower, I stamped the image onto the Bumblebee Designer Series Paper using Cinnamon Cider Classic ink to create depth and definition to the design and then I die cut it with the coordinating die. For the leaves, I stamped two of the large leaves and two sets of the small leaves using Just Jade Classic ink onto the Just Jade Designer Series Paper and then die cut them with the coordinating dies. For the Gold Foil accents, I used the two long stemmed leaves dies to cut one of each and trimmed them to size. For the sentiment label, I used the Tasteful Labels Dies and heat embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder. To assemble the card, I adhered the Misty Moonlight Designer Series Paper layer to the Just Jade card base and added the sunflower using Stampin' Dimensionals towards the center of the card front. Next I added the Just Jade leaves to the bottom left and top right of the sunflower and then I added the Gold accents to the top left corner. For the sentiment, I cut the single stemmed Gold leaves into three pieces and attached them to the back of the label and added it to the bottom right corner of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To complete the card design, I added two of the small Gilded Gems to the sentiment label and one large gem between the Gold leaf accents towards the top right corner of the card. I love how these colors look together and I feel like this design pays tribute to the people of Ukraine. My thoughts and prayers are with them. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects. Stampin' Up! has so many wonderful products that coordinate to help make creating simple and stress free. If you love the 2020-2022 In Colors, I recommend ordering them soon as they will be retiring soon and will sell out quickly. Also, the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle price is only available during the month of March as part of the Savings Are In Bloom promotion.
