IBS Happy 4th of July

Happy Friday (and Happy 4th of July to my American visitors)! 

Today's Inspired by Stamping post includes 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 Inspired by Stamping 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.’

The inside ‘Celebrate’ sentiment is from the Just Because stamp set and was also die cut with the Fancy Labels 2 Dies.

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.

The cute banner sentiments are from the Basket of Flowers and Petite Banners stamp sets, and were die cut with a die from the Fancy Labels 3 Dies.

I hope you enjoyed my 4th of July card and centerpiece, and have ideas for making your own.
