Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments for Happy Inkin’ Thursdat Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. We have someone new joining us this week, Carol Buckalew. She is one of our team members and she creates some beautiful cards. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Color Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Colors.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments CAS 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Cling Stamp Set, Merriest Frames Dies and Organic Beauty Dies for my card today.

Our colors this week are Basic Black, Basic White and any other color we want. I chose to use Cherry Cobbler.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments CAS 2

I started by adhering an Adhesive Sheet to the back of a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I cut the panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Organic Beauty Dies. I adhered the die cut panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

On a panel of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the 2 poinsettia images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink 3 times each. I cut the images out using the Merriest Frames Dies. I adhered the small poinsettia to the larger one using a Glue Dot. I adhered the layered poinsettias to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom 2 and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the top one. I added 3 of the smallest Pearl Basic Jewels to each flower center.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brightly Glow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the poinsettia images from the Merriest Moments stamp set on the top and bottom corners of the panel in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front and flap.
