Stampin’ Up! Hot Dog Bone-Jour

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. We made it halfway through the week already and we’re on our way to the weekend. Hope you are all having a productive week.

I played with another new set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog for today’s card. We have a new neighbor moving onto our block and she just happens to have a dachshund. I’m also really hoping she likes crafting, specifically making cards. I used the Stampin’ Up! Hot Dog Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. Here’s my card that I had so much fun creating.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #205.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the card front using Stampin Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sitting dachshund from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Hot Dog stamp set on the top of the panel in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I used the new Stitched With Whimsy Dies to get the stitching around the panel.

On a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly fill image in Bumblebee Ink. I punched the butterfly out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered it to the Basic White panel using a Glue Dot. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

I had just as much fun creating the inside as I did the outside. I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set towards the top of a Basic White panel. On the bottom I stamped the 2 dachshunds from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment bubbles from the Hot Dog stamp set by each dog in Just Jade Ink. I used the Stitched With Whimsy Dies again to add the stitching around the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sitting dachshund from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the 2020 -2022 In-Color 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!!

Stampin’ Up! CAS Quite Curvy Hello

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? It’s gotten a bit cold here and they are calling for snow a couple times this week, YAY!!! I don’t want that little stuff though, I want a storm that I have to stay home and craft all day.

Today is my last card as a guest designer for the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. I’ve had a lot of fun this month designing with them. I used the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Bundle for my card today along with some FREE Sale-A-Bration DSP. Here’s my card for today.

Here is the sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #404.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. To make sure I had it in the right place, I cut a panel of Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), using the Curvy Dies and set it down on the card front. I embossed the Basic White panel using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the cut panel of DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted panel to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Flower & Field Designer Series Paper is a pack of 12 X 12 DSP that is free with a qualifying order of $50.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Crumb Cake and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the bird out using the Curvy Dies and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink below the sentiment and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Flower & Field 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts Thank You Card

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend so far? I hope you are finding some time for yourself.

For today I used another bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, the Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts Bundle. It’s a beautiful tropical set which I just love. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the TGIF challenge #300. This was an easy one since the catalog just went live.

My upline Jaimie Babarczy is doing a challenge for our team this month. Each week she is giving us a sketch and color challenge. I used the colors only for today’s card. Here’s this weeks challenge.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts Stamp Set in the center of a Basic White card front in Mint Macaron Ink. I embossed the panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the Tranquil Dies, I cut the largest image from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock and adhered it to the Basic White card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the edges. I trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips. I stamped the leaves from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the same panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Tranquil Dies.

I adhered the leaves and flowers to the card front using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Petal Pink on the bottom of the panel and the small leaf image in Coastal Cabana Ink near the flowers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap. I stamped the leaf images from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink on 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Sympathy CAS

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Hope everyone’s weekend is starting out well.

I have a clean and simple card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Bundle. I thought after yesterday’s very involved card I’d do something simple. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #626.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #469.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel. I embossed the panel using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered 2 strips of Very Vanilla cardstock on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the smallest flower from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image using the Peony Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gorgeous Grape Pastel Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel using Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the small flower from the Prized Peony stamp set over the sentiment, stamping off 3 times, in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower from the Prized Peony stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the envelope front and 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. Here is my card for today.

I needed to make a card for a coworker that has suffered from a heart attach this past weekend. I immediately thought about the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet Cling Stamp Set to go with our sketch. Here is our sketch for this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another panel of Forever Greenery DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a scalloped square from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Pretty Peacock Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sloth image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Forever Greenery DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap. I stamped the turtle image from the Back On Your Feet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Just Jade, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Soar Confidently Masculine Card.

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend.

It’s time for another Inspiration Challenge from The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Daring To Dream challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Soar Confidently Cling Stamp Set for my card today along with some World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper and the World Map Dies.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us and play along. How does this photo inspire you?

I started by embossing a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of World of Good Specialty DSP in 3 using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the stitched rectangles to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I threaded a piece of 1/4″ Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim with one of the Antique Slides from the Antique Corner & Slides Embellishments and adhered the trim to the back of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

Using the World Map Dies I cut a globe stand from a panel of Brass Foil Sheet. I cut the globe from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and the detailed globe from a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I adhered the detailed globe to the solid globe using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the globe into the Brass Foil stand using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the globe to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the airplane image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off 3 times. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside is stamped the sentiment from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the airplane image from the Soar Confidently stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the airplane image from the Soar Confidently stamp set on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty 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!!

Hydrangea Haven CAS Encouragement Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you are all having a productive one.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Bundle for today’s card. I’m a guest designer this week again for the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. Here’s my card for today.

Here are the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #403 colors for this week

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. I adhered the panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and using my Blending Brushes, I added color to the panel using Melon Mambo on the top and Old Olive on the bottom. I then stamped the large hydrangea flower from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the colored panel. I cut the image out using my Hydrangea Dies and adhered it to the DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow on top of the stem. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few of the Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven in the center of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the hydrangea image from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using my Blending Brushes I added Melon Mambo Ink on the bloom and Old Olive Ink on the leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large flower from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Blending Brushes I added Melon Mambo Ink on the bloom and Old Olive Ink on the leaves. I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Birthday

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? Yesterday was a busier day than I expected at work. Now today I’m off to the dog boutique bakery. Hopefully we’ll get a lot of visits from our puppy friends.

For today’s card I CASED a card right from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog from page 65 using the Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Bundle. I don’t usually do that, but I thought the card was just so adorable. Here’s my card for today.

Once again I used my Uplines color combo for my card for the challenge she is doing this week.

I started by punching a bunch of scalloped ovals using the new Double Oval Punch from a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I embossed a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and cut the panel into 1 1/2″ strips. I punched 4 embossed ovals out using the Double Oval Punch.

I arranged the scalloped ovals on a panel of Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, some are hanging off the paper. I adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so I had a little wiggle room to move them around. Once they were all adhered, I trimmed the panel down to a 3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″ panel. I adhered the embossed Seaside Spray ovals on top of a few of the Night of Navy scalloped ovals using Stampin’ Dimensionals and trimmed them using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the floral image from the Oval Occasions stamp set below the sentiment and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image out using the Double Oval Punch. I adhered a piece of the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon to the scallop oval using Stampin’ Seal and adhered the sentiment on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Crushed Curry Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Oval Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Oval Occasions stamp set below the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Oval Occasions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 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!!

Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Thanks

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Is anyone doing anything this weekend? I’ll be working all day today and tomorrow.

For today’s card I used one of the FREE stamp sets available from Sale-A-Bration. The Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are lots of beautiful images and sentiments in this set. This set is available with a qualifying order of $100 or more. Here’s my card for today.

My upline Jaimie Babarczy is doing a challenge for our team this month. Each week she is giving us a sketch and color challenge. I used the colors, but switched the side of the sketch. This was a bit of a challenge for me since those that know me, know Crushed Curry is my least favorite color. Here’s this weeks challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the outline floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored the flower in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I fussy cut the butterfly using my Paper Snips. I colored the butterflies body in and a part of the wing using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front, overlapping the stitched circle, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on a strip of Basic White cardstock in Night of Navy Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink. I colored the image in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Hey Girlfriend for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Love”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I decided to do a birthday card using the Stampin’ Up! Hey Girlfriend Cling Stamp Set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card.

I’m a Guest Designer for the month of January for the CAS Colours & Sketches. Here is their sketch #402 for this week.

I played along with the Always Fun Challenge #196. Their challenge is to use “Something New”. I used a new stamp set and new DSP

I started by adhering a panel of the Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bermuda Bay card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink randomly on the strip of cardstock. I adhered the Rich Razzleberry panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped one of the girl images from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bronze/Ivory, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Lovey You stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink in the corners of the panel, some full strength and some stamped off once. I stamped the leafy image from the Lovey You stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the girl image from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored her in using my Bronze/Ivory, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the flower image from the Lovey You stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the envelope front and the leafy image from the Lovey You stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink around the girl. I adhered a panel of the Oh So Ombre DSP to the envelope flap.
