Stampin’ Up! Perfect Plaid for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  I was so excited to be asked to join in with the weekly ‘Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop’ and today is the first day for me to join in.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week was a fun Sketch Challenge.  Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects, I’m sure you will love them.  Here’s what I came up with for their sketch.

Here is the sketch I got to work from.

I started by adhering a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler  card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of a Shaded Spruce cardstock panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the Shaded Spruce card front on top of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies from Whisper White cardstock, I then embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut out the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Whisper White stitched circle to the Gold Foil scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I punched out 3 trees using my Pine Tree Punch, one in Cherry Cobbler, one in Shaded Spruce and one in Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce trees to the Whisper White circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the DSP tree on top of the other 2 using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a knot from a piece of Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped 3/8″ Ribbon and adhered it to the matted stitched circle using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Shaded Spruce card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Inks on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I punched another tree using my Pine Tree Punch from a piece of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP and adhered it on top of the stamped trees using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Inks on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
