Stampin’ Up Lovely Is The Day

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  The weekend is upon us again, have you got any plans?  I’m working Saturday, but Sunday, Father’s Day, I have off.  The past couple years I’ve made my husband a Father’s Day brunch, but I’m not sure what we will be doing this year.

For today’s card I used another new bundle from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Lovely Is The Day Bundle.  The images in this stamp set to me are very whimsical and the Dies that goes with it are so pretty.  The one I used only partially cuts out the image.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Freshly Made Sketches challenge #392.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Stamp Ink Paper challenge #201.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up Lovely Is The Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the leaves from Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and colored the flowers in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using the Lovely Leaves Die I cut the image out, which you can see only partially cuts the image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink above the floral image.  I adhered the artwork to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail.

On the left side of the artwork I adhered 3 thin strips of cardstock, one Pretty Peacock, one Calypso Coral and one Sahara Sand, using a Glue Dot.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel on each one.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the leaves in using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers and the flowers in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink above the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Calypso Coral mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.   I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Father’s Day to any fathers out there.  Happy Stamping!!
