Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden Birthday 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 my card using this weeks sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to a Poppy Parade card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fence image and flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the panel using the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower images, cat and bird images from the Grace’s Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Garden Gateway Dies.  I adhered the die cut images to my artwork using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Basic Black cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the artwork on an angle to the Basic Black rectangle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple From The Heart Faceted Gems to the sentiment strip using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower images and the cat image from the Grace’s Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fence, flower and bird images from the Grace’s Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies DSP to the envelope flap.
