Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds for CAS(E) This Sketch #302

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, tonight’s the night.  Santa comes once everyone is all snuggled in for the night.  Is everyone ready?  I’m just about there.  I still have wrapping to do, then it’s time to prepare our 7 fish Christmas Eve dinner.

I have another sneak peek for you today.  I used a couple different stamp sets from the up coming Occasions Catalog along with some beautiful Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration that will be available January 3, 2019.  I also played along with CAS(E) This Sketch challenge # 302.  Please be sure to stop by CAS(E) This Sketch to see all the beautiful projects and to play along.  I love doing sketch challenges because it really gives me a great place to start.  Here’s their sketch.

Here is what I came up with for the sketch.  Take a look.

I started with a Grapefruit Grove card front.  I adhered, with Snail, a piece of the gorgeous new Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, which you can earn FREE from Sale-A-Bration starting January 3, 2019.  This paper is just one of the amazing items you can earn with a $50.00 order.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral scroll from the Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered it to a Grapefruit Grove mat using Snail.  I adhered another smaller piece of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper to a Grapefruit Grove mat using Snail.  I adhered the 2 matted pieces to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Bokeh Dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink on another small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Incredible Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the dots.  I adheres the sentiment strip to a Grapefruit Grove mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front over the 2 artwork pieces using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Balmy Blue card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Amazing Life Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the scroll above the Happy Birthday in Balmy Blue Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral scroll from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  All the products uses today will be available January 3, 2019.  Purchasing these stamp sets earns you the free Designer Series Paper.
