Happy Birthday Stamp Simply

Thursday, August 13, 2009
I have been invited to join in the celebration of the Stamp Simply Birthday Challenge. Today is the 100th challenge and a reason to celebrate. There are 19 of us who are participating in the celebration, so you will get to see lots of beautiful designs today. I hope you can take time to sit back and enjoy them. You need to simply click on the links below to see them. Don't forget to leave a comment.

Speaking of comments, if you leave a comment for me you will be entered into a drawing for some wonderful blog candy shown at the bottom of this post.



Click on the picture to get a larger view

I stamped the flower from the Flower Gallery Stamp set by Penny Black twice and colored both of them with my Copic Markers. I cut, clipped and curled the top flower and attached them together with my Glue Glider. Flower Soft was added to the center of the flower for extra texture and dimension. (I love that stuff)

Using Therm-O-Web Dimensionals, I added the flowers to the Fleur De Lis Pendant from Spellbinders which had been attached to a piece of DP cut with the Spellbinders Lable One Nesties. The sentiment was stamped using JustRite Birthday Wishes (without the border) and cut out with the Dahlia Nestie.

I ran a piece of May Art's silk ribbon on top of the Madeline K&Company Paper which is cut 5.5x5.5 (shown in this weeks sale) and attached it to the same size of Neenah cream cardstock. It was finished off with a beautiful deep purple silk bow made with the Bow Easy.


Last year for Christmas, I dried several ferns and then I framed them. I stamped a nice sentiment on it and wrote a special letter to my daughter, granddaughters and Mom. They all told me it was the best gift they received. We all decided that this year we all are to make something from the heart. The idea I have had is to etch something for my "girls" this year. So, I needed to practice and I had this bottle that I thought would be a good starting point.

This is my first etching project and I hope you can see it. I used my Cricut to cut out the Dogwood Flower on Vinyl and then I followed this tutorial. It is a very easy and quick process, the etching is completed in 5 minutes.



BLOG CANDY

Please leave me a comment telling of your favorite card making tool, You will then be entered into the blog candy drawing which will take place on Wednesday, August 19, at 3:00 PM ET

The winner will receive the new JustRite Autumn Blessings Stamp Set and the new Basic Grey June Bug Paper Pad with matching brads.

Good news- if you are already a subscriber to my blog or you become one, I will include the wooden stamper to go with the stamp set. All you have to do is fill in your email address on the top left where it says subscribe.

twinkletoe said... Best Blogger Tips

Your work is so lovely Joan - I really enjoy your blog. Now what would be my favorite tools - I think right now it would have to be my Cuttle bug but from the "olden days" I still love embossing with my heat gun. I am still amazed how it just melts and takes on a new look. Thats what got me hooked on stamping 16 years ago.

Lenoria said... Best Blogger Tips

Joan, this is a knock-out card and I love how you have the flowers standing out, it is just beautiful. Your etching looks great to me. I think my favorite tools right now are my stamps and TomBow markers.

Barbara said... Best Blogger Tips

Joan I know you will be surprised when I tell you that my favorite card making tools are JustRite sets LOL
Nestie are a close second.
Joan your card is gorgeous ! I love the layout, the colors, the Fleur de Lis pendant and everything about it . I never thought of using the Dahlia nestie with the JustRite set the way you did. That is a great idea!!

Lana Edwards said... Best Blogger Tips

Joan,
Love your blog candy and your etched glass project! I love my embossing folders especially the textile texture and swiss dot.

Diane Davies said... Best Blogger Tips

Favorite tool for cardmaking would have to be I guess my stamps. Are they considered a tool? If it isn't then I'd have to say my good old paper cutter. Can't make a card without it.

"Tillymint" said... Best Blogger Tips

Ohhhhh, Joan! You know these gorgmous flowers are right up my alley! Wowza! (Although, I'm not sure of the stamp "simply" title! hahaha It's more accurately, "Stamping Genius"! Now you've reminded me that I truly must remember to give glass etching a try. Those will be wonderful gifts! I smiled from one side to the other when I first saw this ... and that's a long way! *grin*

anything for blog candy, but a question is so easy or is it? I love my spellbinder and my cuttlebug do I really need to choose between them?

Carolen said... Best Blogger Tips

Probably my Cuttlebug, but I really don't like choosing!

Thanks for this amazing opportunity!

Joan, this is a fabulous project, and rather enabling, too, I must say! Love all the products you used, especially those Spellbinders shapes. Oh, I'll just never have enough STUFF! You're sharing some lovely candy, too. Thank you!

Gigi said... Best Blogger Tips

Amazing work on the projects! I think my favourite paper tool would have to be my stamps (is that a tool??? lol) Thanks and keep up the great work =)

Carol S said... Best Blogger Tips

Beautiful card and jar. I love the use of the fleur-de-lis with purple!! My favorite tool has to be my big shot, so I can use my nesties, but then again I really use my paper cutter first! Thanks for a chance to win some candy!

That purple is so intense and beautiful.Very pretty. Oh how I would love to win the candy. I have been wanting this set but waiting until everything is purchased for the last little bird to go off to college.
I visit often. I think it is the layout and design of your blog as well as it's content. Thanks again for the chance to win.

Tammy Hershberger said... Best Blogger Tips

Joan, your card is stunning! LOVE those beautifully Copic-colored flowers and the pendant Nestie is the perfect backdrop for your flowers. And the etched glass bottle is beautiful! I will have to give that a try sometime!

Joan, your card is absolutely gorgeous! Very elegant and stunning! And your Etching is beautiful! What great projects!

Juts got the thinking of you just rite set. My LSS did not yet have this autumn blessing would love to win. Thanks for the chance

Jill Haddad said... Best Blogger Tips

These are beautiful. I could just make out the etching on the bottle - I bet it's stunning IRL. I just picked up the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant Friday -- now I guess it's time to jump in and order a Just Rite Stamp Kit (or two!)

My favorite card making tool: My BigShot and embossing folders/Spellbinders Dies.

Lovely Linda said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Joan from Canberra Australia - I love your card - gorgeous, as is that candy you are offering - my favourite tool would have to be my SU Chalks/Pastels, followed closely by my Cuttlebug! Thank you for the opportunity to play. Thanks again! God bless you!

At the moment, the favorite card making tool is the Scor-Pal; love what I can do with it! The June Bug collections is so CUTE! I found some paper last week, but would love to add embellies, so here's hoping I win! Thanks, Joan!

Stampin' Pam said... Best Blogger Tips

My favorite card making tool is my Cuttlebug used with Nesties - (or is that 2 tools!?!?) If that counts as two then I would say my CB is my fave - I can't live (or stamp) without it.

Thanks!

Mary Esther said... Best Blogger Tips

It is difficult to choose just one tool as my favorite. Guess I wouldn't want to be without my paper cutter! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win this blog candy!

Laurie in MN said... Best Blogger Tips

You had me with the rich, deep purple and crisp white used on your lovely card.
Can a computer be considered a stamping tool? If I spent as much time stamping as blog hopping, Halmark would steel my supplies. The blogs inspire me to use my cuttlebug and nesties.

Happy Birthday Stamp Simply.

Linda SS said... Best Blogger Tips

My favorite tool is my Cuttlebug but I'd also be lost without my paper cutter. Thanks for the chance to win your fabulous prize. Your creations are just stunning!

Janet S said... Best Blogger Tips

Gee, my favorite tool? That is a hard one! I LOVE so many gadgets and tools. I guess I can narrow it down to 2: my Wizard with all my Nesties and my Gluerider. But these would do me no good without my beloved stamps! Thanks for a chance to win some great blog candy.

jean wilson said... Best Blogger Tips

I really like the embossing folders. Thanks for the chance to win!

Selma said... Best Blogger Tips

Both these projects are so gorgeous Joan. My favorite card making tool has to be my Cuttlebug so I can use my Nesties and embossing folders.
