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

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Can you feel all the love in the air? I am using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely photopolymer stamp set with the new From My Heart specialty designer series paper to bring some more.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:

Doesn’t it inspire Love? I started with the shiny Real Red with Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White dotted paper from the From My Heart specialty DSP and cut a panel and adhered it to a Flirty Flamingo card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a Thick Whisper White panel with the long flowers die cut from the Lovely Flowers dies which coordinates with the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely stamp set. I used the edge die from the Lovely Flowers die to cut a backing in Flirty Flamingo. I adhered the Flirty Flamingo die cut behind the Whisper White die cut with multipurpose liquid glue.

I wrapped the Real Red satin ribbon around the panels and secured it in the back. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely stamp set in Real Red ink on a scrap of Thick Whisper White. I cut it out with the curved edge die from the Painted Labels dies and popped it over the ribbon with dimensionals. I made a bow and adhered it to the ribbon with glue dots. I popped the layered panel on the card front with dimensionals and finished it off with a Real Red faceted gem on the label.


I stamped the long floral spray from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely stamp set on the bottom of a Whisper White panel in Flirty Flamingo ink. I stamped the coordinating leaf stamp over it using Pear Pizzazz ink. I added the strip of shiny Real Red paper and adhered the panel to a Real Red mat before attaching it to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

With all the flowers and pink and red, Valentine’s Day must be right around the corner – I think we’re getting ready for it!
