Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  I have a sneak peek for you today of a new bundle coming in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  This catalog will got live for customers starting on August 4th.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here is my card with this sketch.

I started by stamping a Cajun Craze card front multiple times with the sentiment from the new Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I cut three leaves from the panel using the new Stitched Leaves Dies.

I adhered a panel of the new Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to the back of the Cajun Craze panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the bottom of the card front panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I wrapped a piece of the 1/2″ Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.

I adhered the card front to a Cajun Craze card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Orate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered 2 of the leaves that I cut from the card front panel to the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
