Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have another sneak peek of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set along with the Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper and the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. Here is my card:
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the sketch we are using:
I started by embossing a Petal Pink panel with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. This embossing folder does cause a little shrinkage, so I trimmed the embossed panel to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ after it was embossed. After trimming, I adhered it to a Petal Pink card base with multipurpose liquid glue.
Next I stamped the 3 medium tulip flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set across a Whisper White panel using Petal Pink ink. Then I stamped the stems and leaves using Pear Pizzazz ink. I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles die. I cut out a panel 0f Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper using the two-step die cutting technique with the next larger size Stitched Rectangles die so that it was 1/4″ shorter. I cut a panel of Thick Whisper White paper the same size using the same technique and adhered it to the back of the Parisian Blossoms DSP to make the DSP stiffer. I adhered the DSP to the card with dimensionals.
I stamped a strip of Petal Pink cardstock with the happy birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Versamark ink. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the small long label die from the Stitched Rectangles die. I made a bow with the Petal Pink metallic edged ribbon and adhered it to the label with glue dots. I adhered the label to the flower panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the flower panel to the DSP panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I finished the card off with three petal pink sequins.
I decorated the inside of the card by stamping a tulip and stem on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tulip in Petal Pink after stamping off once and I stamped the leaves and stem in Pear Pizzazz after stamping off twice. I added a strip of the Parisian Blossoms DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.
The new Mini Catalog has so many beautiful new products to make pretty cards for all the special birthdays coming up! And I love the Champagne metallic touches in the Parisian Blossoms DSP and ribbon – they are so soft and pretty!
