Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Cherries for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Cherries Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by stamping the basket weave image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Cherries Photopolymer Stamp Set on a Crumb Cake card base in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 2nd largest Deckled Rectangle Die. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot Inks on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron panel, which I cut using the 2nd largest Deckled Rectangle Die, on an angle using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the cherry image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink 3 times. On another strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the leaf image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink 6 times. On a thin strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink 3 times. I punched all the images our using my Cherry Builder Punch. I adhered the stems to the back of the cherries using Glue Dots. I adhered the 1st cherry to the layered panel using Glue Dots and adhered the leaves to the stem using Glue Dots. I adhered the other 2 cherries to the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals or Glue Dots.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Blushing Bride and Merry Merlot Inks on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cherry image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Merry Merlot Ink. I stamped the stem in Crumb Cake Ink and the leaves in Mint Macaron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cherry images from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I stamped the basket weave image from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set on the envelope flap in Crumb Cake Ink.

Thank you for stopping by 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 and see everyone’s projects today.
