Stampin’ Up! Grateful We Are Friends

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through and almost to the weekend again.  We are still quarantined here in NJ, so I won’t be going anywhere except to work.

I’ve been making a lot of Mother’s Day cards lately, in case you haven’t noticed.  I like to send them out to my family and friends. Today I have another one for you using a set that will be carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Paper Players Sketch Challenge #488.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting a panel of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The top flower is the Daffodil Delight and the bottom is the Mango Melody, but you can’t really see the difference in the photo.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the fill images from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in using Mango Melody Ink.  I punched the image out using my Butterfly Duet Punch.  I brushed the butterfly with my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.  I stamped the butterflies antenna on the flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and adhered the butterfly to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Band Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the artwork using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the large flower image from the Band Together stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a Whisper White panel, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large flower image from the Band Together stamp set on either side of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Peaceful Poppies DSP 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!!
