Ink. Stamp. Share. August Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. August Showcase Blog Hop as we share projects we are currently working on. Our amazing Design Team are busy creating projects using products from our current Stampin' Up! catalogs as well as getting ready for the upcoming holidays. I hope our projects and ideas will help you to get excited about creating your own fun projects. 
Some of the hardest cards to design and create are sympathy cards and cards providing comfort to people experiencing difficult times. When I saw this beautiful Rings of Love Designer Series Paper, I knew that the designs in this paper pack would work perfectly to create cards from the heart. The design I chose with the bluebirds, was perfect for the card I wanted to create. I love how simple this card design is and how it provides a sense of peace and comfort.

This beautiful clean and simple card design is all about this amazing designer series paper. I just love the sweet little bluebirds and the wonderful colors in this pretty paper. I wanted to make sure that the paper was the star of the show, so I kept the sentiment small and simple. The sentiment label was die cut from Night of Navy cardstock with the Painted Labels Dies and I heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder so that it would pop. I kept the embellishments simple as well with a bow tied with the pretty Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon and a touch of bling with the small Basic Rhinestone Jewels. This design would work well as a masculine card and you could use some Linen Thread or Baker's Twine instead of the ribbon and forgo the rhinestones for a simpler look.
