GSF Special Anniversary Blog Hop




Today marks the 1st Anniversary for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. As a new member I stand in Ahh of the talent that can be found in this group. They have been together for only 1 year and are celebrating it with a special Anniversary Blog Hop. So as Sarah would say: " Grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the hop".

My Anniversary Card is made from a brand new stamp set that will be available 14 days from now (September 1st). The Painted Harvest stamp set will be a very welcome addition to your fall stamp collection. It is a 2 step stamp set with a beautiful watercolor feel.

Card Details:


Card Base – Early Espresso Cardstock 119686,  5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”.
Card Front, Inside Layer, Stitched Label and Leaf Branch – Very Vanilla Cardstock 101650,
Cut 2 at 4” x 5 ¼” (one is for the Inside Layer), 1 1/2" x 3"(Label) & Scraps for the Leaf Branches.
Ink – Crushed Curry 131173, Daffodil Delight 126944, Garden Green 126973 & Soft Suede 126978.
Stamp Set  - Painted Harvest Stamp Set 144783
Dies & Punch - Stitched Shapes Framelits 145372 & Leaf Punch 144667
3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon - Crushed Curry 144197
Gold Faceted Gems 144141
Gold Metallic Foil Doilies 138392

Card Front– Stamp the Sunflower backgrounds in Daffodil Delight, Then use Crushed Curry to stamp the second stamp paying attention to the direction of each stamp. Use Soft Suede to stamp the centers (Stamp off once each time) I did stamp the centers more than once to cover the area, turning the stamp slightly each time (it can get too dark, so do this sparingly). 

Sentiments – The Stitched Label on the Card Front and the Inside Layer are stamped with Soft Suede*.
After Stamping the " Happy Anniversary" Cut it with the small Stitched Square Shapes Framelit.

Leaves - Stamp the Leaf Branch with Garden Green. I Stamped off once with the background stamp onto scrap paper before stamping the leaf. Then Stamped full Strength with the detail stamp. Cut them out with the coordinating Leaf Punch.

Assembly -  I tied the bow onto the card front first. Slide the Gold Foil Doily under the ribbon. The Stitched label is popped up on Dimensionals. Tuck the Leaf Branches in under the Label with Glue Dots. Add the Gold Faceted Gems. 

*I printed out a special Sentiment for the Inside Layer Just for the Hop.
