Stampin’ Up! Special Someone for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. 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 sketch.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #237.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #337.  Here is their Inspiration.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the racoon image from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set first in Early Espresso for the outline then in Soft Suede for the fill color.  I stamped 2 round balloons and one heart balloon from the Special Someone stamp set on the same panel.  I stamped the round balloons first in Mint Macaron and Night of Navy for the outlines.  I then stamped the fill color in Mint Macaron and Night of Navy, stamping off once.  I did the same for the heart balloon, stamped the outline in Melon Mambo and the fill color in Melon Mambo stamping off once.  I cut the images out using the Special Day Dies and I also cut out the balloon strings and the bow.

I embossed a Melon Mambo panel using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the racoon to the embossed panel using Stampin Dimensionals.  I adhered the balloon strings to the racoon using a Glue Dot and the bow to the strings using a tiny drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the balloons to the top of the strings on the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Night of Navy cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Melon Mango Glitter Enamel Dots to the sentiment strip.  I added a couple Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front and one to the center of the bow.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Special Someone stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the racoon image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom of the panel, first in Early Espresso Ink for the outline then in Soft Suede Ink for the fill color.  I stamped the mouse image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the outline image in Basic Gray Ink and the fill image in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the racoon image from the Special Someone stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the outline image in Early Espresso Ink and the fill image in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the balloon string image from the Special Someone stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set first the outline image in Mint Macaron Ink and the fill image in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of the Melon Mambo Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

  1. So cute. Your raccoon is adorable. Raccoons at my house are named Ranger…they’d come when I called the cat named Ranger because they knew I had his food out! 🤣
