Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Thank You 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 my card using this weeks sketch.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #254.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the DSP panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I cut out the small solid poppy using my Poppy Moments Dies from a panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I cut the outline of the poppy out from a panel of Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a panel of Old Olive cardstock 3 times.  I cut the leaves out using my Painted Labels Dies.  I cut the vellum leaves out using my Poppy Moments Dies.  I adhered the outline of the poppy die to the solid die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only in the center to hold it.  I adhered the leaves on the back of the poppy using Snail.  I adhered the poppy to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added  Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the poppy to give it a little sparkle.  I added s few Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Lovely Lipstick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smaller poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lovely Lipstick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped a couple leaves by the flower image.  I colored the images in using my Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

At Paper Pumpkin, we believe in making a difference—especially when it comes to helping you build relationships through papercrafting. For April, we created a fun, family appreciation themed card kit that would make it easy for you to share your hearts with those you love most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother. April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show your appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card.
One more thing about this “fam-tastic” kit: The Paper Pumpkin team knows that everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, we provided sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life.
