Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes Humming Along

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re almost through the week.  After having 2 short weeks this one feels extra long to me.  I really think we should have 3 day work weeks and 4 day weekends all the time.

For today’s card I pulled out another set from the Annual Catalog called Dandelion Wishes.  Take a look

I started with  Thick Very Vanilla card base and adhered a panel of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to the front using Snail.  I took a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the triple dandelion image and the flying dandelion pieces image from the Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Pacific Point Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered the artwork to a Pacific Point panel using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Humming Along stamp set in Versamark Ink below the artwork.  I sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I wrapped a piece of Very Vanilla 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the artwork and tied a bow.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then added a couple Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the dandelion image from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment with the Stampin’ Up Seasoned With Kindness stamp set over the dandelion image in Pacific Point Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pacific Point mat using Snail then to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the dandelion image from Dandelion Wishes stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Garden Impressions DSP to the envelope flap.

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