Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had to work both days, but I have today off, YAY!!  Today is my fur babies birthday, she turned 12.  I thought I’d share a couple pictures of her with you.  She was my mother’s day gift 12 years ago, and the best gift I ever received.  Her name is Jasmine. The 1st one is the day I got her, she was about 10 weeks old and the last one is recent.  She’s gotten a little grey, but still acts like a puppy at times.  She is definitely a mommy’s girl.  Thanks for letting me share.

Onto today’s card.  Tomorrow night we’re having our monthly card class.  We’re planning on making 4 Easter/Spring cards.  Here is one of the cards we’re going to make.

The colors in my card were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #494.  Here are their color.  I absolutely love these colors together, so soft and springy.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #260.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder which you can earn as a bundle with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration.   This embossing folder is one I’m really hoping carries over to the next Annual Catalog, it’s one of my favorites.  I took my Soft Sea Foam stamp pad and gently wiped it across the embossed panel shading the raised parts.  I then took my Smoky Slate stamp pad and gently wiped that across the panel.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large outline flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the outlined image.  I was able to get everything lined up so perfectly using my Stamparatus.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut a small panel of Smoky Slate cardstock using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies that was the same size as my rectangle.  I adhered the artwork to the Smoky Slate mat on an angle using Glue Dots and adhered it to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon which I tied in a knot to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On a thin strip of Petal Pink cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the sentiment.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink below the flower image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outline flower image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set on the envelope front in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the outlined image.  I adhered a Soft Sea Foam panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

  1. Your card is gorgeous, Karen – love that sponged stone embossing! Your Jasmine…what a sweety. Reminds me so much of my black lab Shadow (yes – SOOO original). She was lovely – outside and in. Give Jasmine a schnoozle kiss for me!

  2. Lovely card Karen! The depth and variation of colour you got by swiping the ink pad across the embossed pattern has a real wow effect! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim
