Stampin’ Up! Glad We’re Friends

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already. I think this is the only bad thing about summer, it goes so quickly.

I wanted to play with a new set today that I just got from the Annual Catalog. I had a lot of fun playing with this one. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Glad We’re Friends Cling Stamp Set along with the Lovely in Linen Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from the TGIF Challenge #376.

I started by adhering a panel of Lovely in Linen DSP to a Pale Papaya card base. I adhered a strip of Soft Succulent cardstock to a panel of Lovely in Linen DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the corgi image and sentiment from the Glad We’re Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Pale Papaya, Smoky Slate and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front, overlapping the stamped image, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Glad We’re Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the corgi image from the Glad We’re Friends stamp set, using Post-It Tape to cover the fan, on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the corgi image from the Glad We’re Friends stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Flirty Flamingo and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Lovely in Linen DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
