Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. My card for today is made special for my great nephew. He’s your typical monkey climbing all the time and his birthday is coming up next week, he turns 7. I used the Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us Cling Stamp Set for my card. Here is my card for today.
I played along with Global Design Project #279. They have a Theme Challenge this week.
I started by stamping the tree images from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. Using my Blending Brushes I added color to the top of the panel with Balmy Blue Ink. I added the color a little at a time until I had the shade I wanted. I then colored the tree trunks and branches in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the leave in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large animal image from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Basic Black, Bronze/Ivory, Gray Granite, Just Jade, Mango Melody, Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I stamped the image again on another panel of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut the ostrich and monkey images out using my Paper Snips and colored them in using my Bronze/Ivory, Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the ostrich and monkey to the larger image using Stampin’ Dimensionals then adhered the large image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Bloom Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the tree images from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Granny Apple Green Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree images from the From All Of Us stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them in using my Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.
