Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! 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 Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks theme.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Prince & Princess Photopolymer Host Stamp Set for my card today along with the new Basic Borders Dies.
Our theme is Things With Wings. Swans have wings, right?
I started by embossing a panel of Pool Party cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the swan image from the Prince & Princess host stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the beak using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little color to the feathers using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the water image below the swan in Pool Party Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the swan image and colored them in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the cattails image on the leaves in Soft Suede Ink and colored them in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.
Using my new Basic Borders Dies, I cut the Basic White panel on an angle using the cloud looking die. I adhered the artwork to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink and adhered it to a strip of Just Jade cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment stamp set to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prince & Princess stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set below the sentiment in Just Jade Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I added the cattails to the leaf image stamping them in Soft Suede Ink and coloring them with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue
To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the swan image from the Prince & Princess stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the water image below the swan in Pool Party Ink. I colored the beak using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers and added a little color to the swans feathers using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped and colored the envelope flap using the leaf and cattails images from the Prince & Princess stamp set.
