Stampin’ Up Beautiful You for TGIF Challenge

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re almost done with another week and less than 2 weeks till Christmas.  Have you gotten your shopping done yet?  When you read this I will probably be in my kitchen starting my major baking weekend.  I spend 4 days baking all kinds of goodies.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite stamp sets from the Annual catalog, Beautiful You.  I played along with the TGIF Color Combo Challenge #189.  Please be sure to stop by TGIF to see all the beautiful projects and to play along.  Here is their challenge.  I really love these colors.

Here is what I came up with for this challenge.  Take a look.

I started with a Whisper White card front.  Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the dancing woman from Beautiful You stamp set toward the center bottom in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I masked the image and again using my Stamparatus I stamped the Marbled background stamp in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the woman in using my Balmy Blue (available January 3, 2019), Ivory and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On an angle on the top left I stamped Celebrate in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail.

I colored 3 of the Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels in with my Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the card front.  I adhered the matted card front to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the dancing woman from the Beautiful You stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink in the center on a Whisper White panel stamping off once.  I then stamped the sentiments from the same stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink over the image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail then adhered it to the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dancing woman from the Beautiful You stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the front left side of the envelope.  I stamped the envelope flap with the Marbled background stamp in Soft Sea Foam Ink.

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