Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I just put out some purple mums by my front door and I wanted to pull out the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style bundle so I could color it to match my mums. Then I saw that the our theme for this week is ‘Plaid’ and I thought that the plaid and flowers would be perfect together! This is what I came up with.
We have a theme challenge this week, and here is the theme we are using for our projects:
Emboss a Rich Razzleberry panel with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhere it to the front of a Rich Razzleberry card base. Cut a Terracotta Tile panel with the Ornate Layers Die and adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings designer series paper to the front. Adhere the layered die cut to the front of the card. Cut and embossed three leaves from the Nature’s Roots dies in Bumblebee and adhere them to the bottom of the panel. Cut some branches from the Forever Gold Laser Cut specialty paper and adhere them to the top of the leaves.
Stamp the bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Color it with Rich Razzleberry, Mossy Meadow, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. Fussy cut the image and brush clear Wink of Stella on the flowers.
Adhere the flowers to the card front with dimensionals. Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Terracotta Tile and cut it out with the long small die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Adhere it to the bottom of the card with liquid glue and dimensionals. Accent the card front with Gilded Gems and a Terracotta Tile bow.
Stamp the sentiment from the Sending Sunshine stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Stamp set in Early Espresso ink next to the sentiment and color it with Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends. Cut a strip of Terracotta Tile with the Ornate Borders die and adhere a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom. Adhere it to the bottom of the Whisper White panel and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.
The rich fall colors and the plaid give a different look to the beautiful flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set, that is perfect for this time of year. So if you’ve got this bundle, pull it out and have fun creating a fall card! Oh, and the pretty Plaid Tidings designer series paper is on sale for 15% off!
