Our talented designer Lisa has created a fabulous 4th of July centerpiece with coordinating card! We love all her details throughout and those Hersey Kisses are adorable on the Pinwheels! Here is Lisa with her project!
“Hi Everyone! Happy 4th of July to our American visitors. Lisa here with a card and centerpiece celebrating Independence Day. The ideas I am sharing today can be incorporated for any holiday or celebration.
I had a lot of fun making this card using several IBS stamp sets.
I inked up just the ‘Happy’ portion of the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sweet Pea stamp set. For the ‘4th of’ I used the ‘4’ from the Fancy Alphabet stamp set, the ‘th’ from the Sweet Pea stamp set, and the ‘of’ from the Lily of the Valley stamp set.
July was spelled out using letters from the Fancy Alphabet stamp set and die cut with the Fancy Labels 2 Dies. This card can easily be made as a birthday card by changing the patterned paper, just stamping ‘4th’ and then ‘Birthday’ rather than ‘July.’
A Pinwheel centerpiece with chocolate! How perfect this would be for a birthday party.
The Swirling Pinwheels stamp set offers endless crafting fun and possibilities. I curled the ends of the pinwheels with a bone folder before attaching them together with a pop dot (circle opening in the middle so the brad could easily go through and the pinwheel would still turn). The Hershey Kisses are attached with glue dots.
I hope you enjoyed my 4th of July card and centerpiece, and have ideas for making your own.
Next up is Kylie with a gorgeous balloon card! We adore her clouds and sunshine! Here is Kylie!
“Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by today.
I wanted to make a cute summery scene for you today and I went straight for the The Sky’s the Limit set.
To create my scene, I first tore a piece of paper for a mask and started sponging the sky. Then I sponged the grass.
I stamped my hot air balloon, coloured it and then fussy cut the image out. I popped it up on foam tape to give it dimension.
I love this sentiment that comes with this set.
This set is very versatile as you can have simple friendship cards or birthday card.
