Good Morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! Our talented team has created projects this month with the theme of Celebrate! I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom bundle to make a fancy card to celebrate a special anniversary! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I embossed the Blushing Bride panel with the new Painted Texture 3D embossing folder from the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog and adhered it to the front of a Blushing Bride card base. I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel.
I cut the Blushing Bride panel with the large floral Many Layered Blossoms Dies. I positioned the outline die on the gold foil and laid the Blushing Bride die cut on top and adjusted the die until it lined up. I removed the die cut and adhered the die to the foil with post it notes and ran it through my die cutting machine.
I colored the center of the Blushing Bride Die cut with the Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend and adhered the Gold Foil die cut on top. I positioned the layered die cuts on the stamped panel and positioned the Stitched Rectangle die on top. I cut the layered die cuts and then cut the stamped panel with the same stitched rectangle die. I adhered the layered die cuts to the stamped panel and then adhered it all to a Gold Foil mat.
I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates cling stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny and cut the label out with the Stitched Nested Labels die. I wrapped the floral panel with gold trim and made a bow and popped the label on the trim with dimensionals. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals and finished it with three gold glitter enamel dots.
I stamped one of the single flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Real Red on a Whisper White panel. I cut the flower’s corresponding die cuts in Blushing Bride and Fold Foil. I colored the Blushing Bride flower center with the dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend and adhered it all together. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set in Real Red and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
