Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I have another sneak peek of the beautiful new Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery bundle that is coming in the new January – June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5. I paired the bundle with the pretty Fine Art Floral designer series paper, also coming on January 5, and the Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp set. You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the cute sketch we are using for our projects:
I embossed a panel of Gray Granite cardstock with the new Painted Texture 3D embossing folder, available January 5, and adhered it to the front of a Gray Granite card base. I cut two panels of the Gray Granite floral paper from the Fine Art Floral designer series paper and cut them with the third largest Stitched Rectangles die – note that the top layer is cut from the back side. On the back side, I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery and Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp sets in Blushing Bride, Terracotta Tile, Bumblebee and Shaded Spruce ink along the bottom.
I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride and Terracotta Tile on a Thick Whisper White panel and the leaves and stem in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White. I adhered the stem on the stamped panel with liquid glue and popped the flower on with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery stamp set in Terracotta Tile ink on So Saffron and cut it out with the small label die from the Floral Gallery dies.
I adhered the panels on the card front with liquid glue and adhered the label with dimensionals and a glue dot over the flowers. I tied a bow with the Fine Art ribbon, available January 5, and adhered it to the stem with a glue dot. I finished the card front with three gold glitter enamel dots.
I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery and Beautiful Friendship stamp sets in Blushing Bride, Bumblebee, Terracotta Tile and Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White Panel. I adhered the panel to a So Saffron mat and the to the inside of the card.
The flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Stamp set are so dramatic and go pretty well with the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set. The two step stamping really lets you be creative and create beautiful flowers, and it’s really nice to have coordinating dies to cut them out. Check out the stamp set in the picture below – see all the different sentiments!
