Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Blossoms for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party  card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to Petal Pink mats using Snail.  I adhered the bottom panel to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the top panel straight on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a stitched heart using the Stitched Be Mine Dies out of a Pool Party panel.  I cut the Petal Pink scallop heart out of the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I put the hearts together and flipped them over.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals between the seams to hold the hearts together and adhered it to the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip on a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the card front overlapping the heart using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the heart and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set around the sentiment in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped a cluster of the small flower image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Wedding Sneak Peek

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  One week from today is Christmas Eve, yikes!!  Have you gotten you shopping done, baking done, cards mailed.  You all know I got my baking done.  My cards just went in the mail (here’s hoping they get to everyone on time).  Shopping??? Well, I haven’t really gotten any done.  I’ve sent my husband out to pick things up, guess that’s next on my list of things to do.  I’m really running out of time here.

For today I have another sneak peek for you using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Bundle.  When I saw this set in the New 2020 Mini Catalog, I just knew I had to have it.  My son needs a wedding card for New Years Day, so I thought I’d play around with this bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink twice on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Purple Posy and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Cherry Blossoms Dies.

I adhered the cut images to the embossed Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue letting them hang off on either side.  I cut the pieces that were hanging off the card front to make them even.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Seafoam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the floral image in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a couple more Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the inside.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Stamp Set, Dies and Embossing Folder used for today’s card will be available in just 2 1/2 short weeks. Happy Stamping!!
