Welcome to the Stampin' Celebration Challenge card share!
I still need to keep pinching myself that I was chosen to be a guest designer! I am so honoured to be a part of such a great group of ladies.
The challenge this week is AWESOME. I love the feeling that these inspiration pictures give to me - relaxed and summer best describe these photos. I just love this time of year!
Here is the card I made with this inspiration....
I decided to dust off a couple of favourite retired stampsets of mine...Perfectly Preserved and By the Sea Shore - perfect for capturing those awesome inspiration images.
I was going for a 'message in a bottle' sort of card and I thought the images were a perfect way to send a Happy Retirement message. I used my Teeny Tiny Messages stampset for the sentiment and cut it out using my Bitty Banners Framelits
Some other tools and stampsets I used were...Cannery Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Gorgeous Grunge stampset and World Map stampset.
The colours I chose were Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand and Very Vanillia. I also used some Vellum cardstock for my mason jar. I stamped the image in Lost Lagoon onto the Vellum then waited until my ink dried before I ran it through the Big Shot with the Cannery Framelits. I cut a second jar using Lost Lagoon cardstock to place behind the Vellum. I finished things off with some of the new Thick Baker's twine at my sentiment.
