Stampin’ Up! Hello Fabulous! for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are all staying heathly, we’re all good here. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.  I just love this color combo.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #228.  Here is their sketch.

I started by very lightly tacking the 2 panels of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to the Blackberry Bliss cardstock with Snail.  Using my Paper Trimmer, I cut all the panels at the same time on a slight angle.  I adhered the 2 pieces of Best Dressed DSP that I wanted, to the Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panels to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  On the same panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the perfume bottle and lipstick images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the perfume bottle in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  To get the darker purple around the outside of the bottle, I colored it over multiple times.  I colored the lipstick image in using my Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my All Dressed Up Dies.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the images to give it a little shimmer.

I adhered the cut images to the sentiment oval using Glue Dots.  It’s hard to see in the photo, but I adhered some Rose Metallic Thread to the back of the artwork then adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Purple Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the perfume bottle and lipstick images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the lipstick smudge image, (not real sure that’s what it’s supposed to be but it fit), from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I colored the images in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little Clear Wink of Stella to the images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the perfume bottle and lipstick images from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the lipstick smudge image from the Dressed to impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Blackberry Bliss, Purple Posy and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Best Dressed DSP to the envelope flap.
