Stampin’ Up! Dahlia Days with Butterflies & Flowers Masks

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It’s been a wet one so far here and unfortunately, we got a bit of water inside this time. I’m done with the rain now, we need a long dry spell to happen. Our backyard is a sponge and when you walk the water splashes up. I worked all day yesterday and I have off today. I wasn’t sure why they gave me off Sunday again. Turns out I got a reminder that I have a team meeting and I must have requested off.

Today’s card I played with some retiring items again. Sometimes I just wish some of the things I like could stay on much longer. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dahlia Days Cling Stamp Set along with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks for my card today.

I started by placing the thin lined Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Mask on a Basic White panel and securing it with Post-It tape. I added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I turned the mask and lining up the thick lined flower on top and added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I did this twice on the panel moving my mask.

I stamped the leaves and sprig images from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the flowers. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textures 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered it to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the front of a Baic White Thick card base.

I adhered a length of Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon on the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fresh Freesia Loose Flower Flourishes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Mask using Post-It tape and added Fresh Freesia Ink using my Blending Brush. I stamped the leaves and sprig images from the Dahlia Days stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Basic White thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I colored the flowers the same as I did for the card front on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The Masks, Stamp Set and Embossing Folder will all be retiring and are only while supplies last. Happy Stamping!!
