Stampin’ Up! Many Mates for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the first Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop with the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! My card uses the new Stampin’ Up! Many Mates bundle with the returning To A Wild Rose stamp set and Wild Roses Dies.

We have a wonderful retro color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using. And it includes one of the new 2020-2022 In Colors – Bumblebee!

So of course my card base is Bumblebee and I cut a panel of the Bumblebee paper from the Flowers For Every Season 6×6 designer series paper pack and adhered it to the front of the card base. Then I cut a panel of Early Espresso with the wonderful background die from the Many Medallions Dies and adhered it to the card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the sweet Thinking of You sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped the rose from the To A Wild Rose photopolymer stamp set in Crushed Curry ink on So Saffron card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Wild Roses Dies. I stamped two of the leaves with Old Olive ink on Old Olive card stock and cut them out with the coordinating die.

I arranged the die cuts on the card front and adhered the leaves and label with multipurpose liquid glue. I popped the flower with dimensionals and decorated the center with Cinnamon Cider enamel dots. I made a bow with the Bumblebee 1/4″ twill ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.

For the inside, I stamped two roses from the To A Wild Rose stamp set in So Saffron ink (after stamping off twice) in the corners of a Whisper White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Flowers For Every Season DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

It was so much fun to play with the new Stampin’ Up! Many Mates stamp set and Many Medallions Dies! New Catalog = New Toys! Yay!!
