Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the first Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop of 2020. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. I used a FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set for today’s card.  My daughter’s friend loves Meer Cats, so I made her a birthday card using the new set.  Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

Here is our sketch for this week.

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! The Gang’s All Meer Cling Stamp Set using Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the same image on a Post-It note and fussy cut it to do the Masking Technique.  I colored the Meer Cats in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I covered the image with the Post-It note and started sponging.  Using my Stamping Sponges, I started at the bottom with Old Olive Ink. I sponged Daffodil Delight above the Old Olive and Calypso Coral above that.  I continued sponging with the Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Night of Navy on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to an Old Olive mat using Snail.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White strip to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the Center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 small Meer Cats and the Lizard images from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the party hat image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set on the 2 Meer Cats in Night of Navy Ink.  I colored the Meer Cats in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers and I colored the lizard in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large Meer Cat image from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the 2 smaller Meer Cat images from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in using my Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.
