Good Thursday morning my stamping friends, Merry Christmas Eve, Eve! Is everyone just about ready for the big day? I’m not. I have to work all day today and I don’t have 1 gift wrapped. I still have to pick up a gift or 2, which may end up having to wait. The lines in the store were crazy the other day. Now if it’s something I can buy at the dog bakery or the hardware store, then I will get it.
Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. 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 awesome projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.
I used the new Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Cling Stamp Set along with Sale-a-bration items, the Stampin’ Up! Special Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set and Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper for my card today.
Here is our sketch for this week.
I started by cutting the center of a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die.
I adhered the larger piece of the DSP to a Pale Papaya card base. I took the center piece that I cut out and flipped it over and adhered it to the center of the adhered piece on the card base. Can we just take a moment to look at this gorgeous DSP!!!
On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off 3 times on a piece of scrap paper. I colored just the throat of the daffodil using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I went over what I colored using the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blend Marker so there was just a very light color. I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink over the stamped image. I cut the image our using the 4th largest Layering Circle Dies. I adhered a piece of the Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front and adhered the circle over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.
To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the envelope flap.
