Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s card I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous bundle to make a pretty floral birthday card. This photopolymer stamp set has two and three step stamps that make gorgeous multi-toned flowers! You can find the 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 pretty sketch we are using:
I embossed a panel of Soft Sea Foam Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhering it to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base. I cut the lattice from the Fabulous Florals Dies from Basic White card stock and cut the second largest oval from the Stitched Shapes dies from the Fine Art Floral designer series paper. I adhered the oval to the lattice with glue dots.
I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous photopolymer stamp set in Flirty Flamingo. I mounted the three stamps for this 3 step flower on blocks and stamped the center with full strength and then stamped the larger detailed stamp on top full strength. Then I stamped the larger background in stamped off Flirty Flamingo. Doing the stamping in this order made it fairly easy to line up. Then I stamped the small yellow flowers with the center in Mango Melody and the outer two in So Saffron. I cut out the flowers with the coordinating dies. I stamped two of each set of leaves in Pear Pizzazz and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I arranged the leaves and flowers on the oval and used glue dots to adhere the So Saffron Flowers and leaves. I popped the Flirty Flamingo flower on the top with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on a Basic White strip. I cut the end of the strip with the Banners Pick-A-Punch and adhered it to the oval. I adhered the oval to the card front with dimensionals and finished the card front with a White bow and three pearls.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on a Basic White panel and trimmed the side in the Soft Seafoam Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP. Stamped another flower from the Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous stamp set in Flirty Flamingo and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered the flower and remaining leaves to the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous bundle has beautiful floral images using the two and three step stamping techniques. These flowers definitely look better when carefully stamped to preserve the white highlights. So practice with different color combinations and use different techniques to help line up your stamps – it’s relaxing and fun!!
