Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today and staying healthy. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card for today.
This week we have a color challenge for our blog hop. Here are the colors. I chose Pool Party as the color of my choice. I’m really starting to like black and white cards lately.
I started by stamping the wild flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock twice in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set above the flowers in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the butterfly in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.
I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds stamp set on the top of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered the panel to a Pool Party mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the matted panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above the sentiment and colored it in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the wild flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink by the flowers and colored it in using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.
