We Create August Blog Hop Nourish & Flourish

Welcome to the We Create August Blog Hop with our theme this month, "Nourish & Flourish". As we prepare to transition into Fall, it's a time for us to think about the people around us and how we can help those who may be struggling physically, mentally or emotionally. Stampin' Up! has a wonderful kit in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog that is part of their Stampin' Up! Making A Difference program, with $3 from every kit being sold being donated to support organizations working to end food insecurity. The Flourish & Nourish Kit is just one way we can help make a difference to the people in our lives. Something as simple as a card can also make a big difference to someone who is struggling. Today we will be sharing projects and ideas to help inspire you to help make a difference in the life of someone you care about. 
The Nourish & Flourish Kit contains supplies to create 9 beautiful cards with coordinating envelopes. The wonderful thing about this card kit is that there is not stamping required, so it is perfect for crafters of all stages, including beginners. The textured backgrounds on the front of the card bases adds a wonderful elegance to the designs and these cards are perfect for a variety of occasions. This kit has sentiments in English, French and German and for my card design today, I wanted to share how you can use the sentiment labels in the other languages to provide more options for your kit.
Products Used:
Nourish & Flourish Kit (item #160230)
Peaceful Moments stamp set (item #151595)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallics Embossing Powders (item #155555)
Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (item #141897)
Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels (item #158130)
For my card design, I chose to use most of my supplies from the kit to create a card similar to the second design in the kit. For the sentiment, I chose one of the French sentiment labels, and heat embossed the Happy Birthday image from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on the reverse side, using Gold embossing powder. I followed the layout of the card design in the kit, but I chose not to use all the flowers and leaves shown in the original and placed two of the larger flowers so that they overlapped the top and bottom corners using Stampin' Dimensionals. For a touch of bling, I chose to add Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels to the centers of the two larger flowers as well as on the sentiment label and card front. I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to the centers of the large flowers and as accents to the leaves and small yellow flowers. I love the clean and simple elegance of this card design. The extra labels in this kit provide you with the ability to customize your cards using your favorite sentiment stamp. There are so many ways we can help reach out to people, whether it is to help celebrate a birthday or just to let them know you are thinking of 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 cards to share with others to help brighten their day. There are so many wonderful possibilities to explore to help make a difference.

  1. What a great way to step up this kit! I love the fonts in the Peaceful Moments stamp set, and gold embossing is always a win. Thanks for sharing :-D

  2. Beautiful card, and lovely idea! Embossing always adds that extra something. I love altering kits to the way I want! Paper Pumpkin is perfect for that too! :)
