Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. We have a new hopper with us starting this week, Tara Carpenter has joined us, YAY!! If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.
I used my favorite set for today’s blog hop, the Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Photopolymer Set along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Here is our sketch for this week.
I started by adhering a panel of Whimsy & Wonder DSP to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the top and bottom images from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the legwarmer image in Polished Pink Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow & Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Polished Pink Ink. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banners Pick A Punch. I cut a strip of Polished Pink cardstock using the Banners Pick A Punch and adhered the sentiment to the mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Polished Pink Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Whimsy & Wonder DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.
