Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today’s card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! So Much Love cling stamp set. This is a sweet set with two different floral arrangements that are perfect for coloring and three sentiments in a lovely font.
We have a fun sketch challenge this week, and here is the card sketch we are using:
I started by stamping the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! So Much Love stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on three different small panels of Whisper White card stock. I wanted to make sure that each panel displayed a nice image since I was going to cut them out with a die, so I stamped different parts of the flower on each panel. I colored each panel with Stampin’ Blends – Flirty Flamingo for the flower, Granny Apple Green for the leaves and Pool Party for the background. I dotted the flower centers with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend.
I cut the flowers out with the small Stitched Rectangle Die and mounted them on Pool Party mats. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Much Love stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a strip of Pool Party. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with the small long Stitched Rectangle Die. I embossed a Flirty Flamingo panel with the Scripty 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Whisper White panel.
I adhered a panel of the Artistry Blooms designer series paper to a Whisper White mat. I adhered the layered embossed Flirty Flamingo panel to the DSP panel with multipurpose liquid glue and popped them on the front of a Granny Apple Green card base. I adhered the layered floral panels on the card front with dimensionals and then adhered the label with dimensionals and glue dots. I finished the card front with three Elegant Faceted Gems.
I stamped the large flower in Flirty Flamingo ink, after stamping off three times, in the center of a Whisper White panel. I added a strip of Artistry Blooms DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.
Floral line stamps like the Stampin’ Up! So Much Love stamp set are probably my favorite stamp styles. I find it so relaxing to color them and they are so versatile. Plus they always make for a pretty, feminine card that will bring a smile to anyone receiving it.
