Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the new Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship bundle from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for today’s Thank You card. I also used the new colorful and fun Pattern Party designer series paper that will be a host item in the new catalog. And the best news is that the new catalog will be open for orders next week on May 4th. I can’t wait!! 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 pretty sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of the new Pattern Party designer series paper to a Poppy Parade mat and then popped it on the front of a Coastal Cabana card base. I stamped the flower and stems from the Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship cling stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Die. I colored the leaves with the light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ blend and adhered it to a Poppy Parade mat.

I stamped two large petal clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on Basic White and cut them out with the new Flowers and Leaves punch that is in the bundle. I colored them with the Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend and adhered them together with a glue dot. I stamped four small petal clusters, punched them out, colored the flowers and adhered them together. I adhered the two small flowers to the panel with glue dots and popped the large flower on the panel with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship stamp set using Bermuda Bay ink on a Basic white strip and cut it out with the stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers dies using the two step die cutting method. I cut a Coastal Cabana strip the same size and adhered it to the back of the label. Then I popped the floral panel on the side of the card front with dimensionals and adhered the label with dimensionals and glue dots. I finished the flowers centers with the new 2021-2023 In Color jewels and adhered a Coastal Cabana bow to the stem.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the row of flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Poppy Parade ink across the top of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Flowers of Friendship bundle is a great little stamp and punch set with cute flowers and sentiments. The new Pattern Party designer series paper is so colorful and fun and this is the first time that a Designer Series Paper pack has been among the host items. Both of these items along with the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels will be available when the new catalog opens on May 4, 2021. Here is a picture of the new bundle with the new designer series paper and today’s card.
