Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have a whimsical miss you card to brighten your day using the sweet Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp bundle along with the Well Written Dies.
We have a color challenge this week, and here is the bright, fun color palette we are using:
My card also fits with the current challenge at TGIF Challenges – #TGIFC261- Use Your Words. Check it out – it’s a fun challenge and the cards are so cute.
I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Delight sprinkles paper from the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper pack to a Grapefruit Grove mat and then to a thick Whisper White card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a panel of Whisper White with a Stitched So Sweetly Dies scalloped rectangle and embossed it with the Scripty embossing folder. I adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue.
I stamped 9 three petal flower clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on the Grapefruit Grove starburst paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack. I sprinkled them with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set until shiny and punched them out with the Perennial Flower Punch. I gently curved the petals with my fingers and made three flowers by adhering the centers with multipurpose liquid glue – each flower has three sets of petals. I added a fun, fuzzy Perennial Essence Floral Center to each flower. I stamped 6 leaf clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set using Bermuda Bay ink on the Bermuda Bay confetti paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP pack and punched them out with the Leaf Punch.
I cut out the sentiment from Bermuda Bay card stock using the Well Written Dies. I also cut two Well Written Dies butterflies from Daffodil Delight card stock. With all the pieces cut out, I arranged them on the card front and started assembly by adhering the Bermuda Bay words with multipurpose liquid glue – Don’t lose the tiny dot for the ‘I’! I adhered the leaves with multipurpose liquid glue and the flowers with glue dots. Lastly, I adhere a little butterfly and finished it off with Calypso Coral enamel dots.
I adhered the second butterfly to the top corner of a Whisper White panel and added the strip of Daffodil Delight DSP. I adhered the decorated panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and then to the inside of the card.
What do you think of stamping on the designer series paper? It’s a little different, giving a little extra texture to the flowers and leaves. Too bad I didn’t die cut the butterflies from the Daffodil Delight sprinkle paper – next time.
