Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have made a whimsical thank you card using the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set along with the matching Special Day dies from the Coordination Release. Here’s my card:
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the sketch we are using:
I embossed a panel of the wood grain paper from the Pressed Petals specialty designer series paper with the Woodland embossing folder. I cut a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the grass die from the Special Day dies. I embossed the grass strip with the Subtle embossing folder. I cut the tree from Mossy Meadow card stock using the tree die from the Sweet Silhouettes dies. I sponged the top of a Whisper White panel with Balmy Blue ink so that it would look like a sky. I adhered the grass to the bottom of the panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the tree to the right side of the panel with multipurpose liquid glue and trimmed the ends. I adhered the panel to the embossed wood grain paper with multipurpose liquid glue.
On a panel of Whisper White, I stamped the raccoon from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the squirrel in Early Espresso ink and the mouse in Gray Granite ink. I cut out all three critters using the coordinating dies from the Special Day dies. I colored the raccoon and squirrel with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the mouse with the Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. I adhered them to the front with dimensionals. I stamped the butterflies from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut the flowers with the 4-flower dies using Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Petal Pink and Pool Party card stock scraps. I adhered them to the bottom with multipurpose liquid glue and added a pearl to the center of each.
I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock. I cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I wrapped it with linen thread and tied a bow to the left side. I adhered it to the panel with dimensionals and I adhered the decorated panel to a Pretty Peacock card base with dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I cut a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the grass die from the Special Day dies. I embossed it with the Subtle embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.
