Stampin’ Up! Poppy Moments Valentine for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. 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.
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #225.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #248.  Here is their theme.

I joined in with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #256.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Poppy Moments Dies, I cut a solid flower from the Real Red cardstock.  I cut the outline flower and the scallop trim from the Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I cut the flower center from the Basic Black cardstock.  Using the Painted Labels Dies I cut the swirly circle from the Basic Black Cardstock.  I adhered the flower outline to the solid flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the larger flower center to the flower center using Snail and the smaller flower center using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the Basic Black swirly circle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flower on top of the swirl using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.  I adhered the Flirty Flamingo scallop trim below the sentiment using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Real Red Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set on the top and bottom corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using the color fill stamp from the Painted Poppies stamp set, I stamped over the poppy images using Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink inside the flowers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the fill image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off once, inside the flowers.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink inside the flowers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

  1. This is a great CAS card. I like the way you reversed the sketch. That stamp set is growing on me but I have way too many flower sets!
