Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made a simple friendship card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship photopolymer stamp set and the pretty Beauty of the Earth designer series paper. I also used the fun Stitched with Whimsy dies to add a special touch to my card. You can find the supplies I used 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 today.
I embossed a panel of Beauty of the Earth designer series paper with the second largest Stitched With Whimsy dies – note that I used the pretty paper with the tree lines to make my stripes! I adhered the DSP to a Bumblebee mat with liquid glue and wrapped it twice with gold trim making a loopy bow on the right side, securing it with a glue dot.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of the Earth stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Bumblebee panel and embossed it with the small rectangle Stitched With Whimsy die. I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and popped it on the tree panel with dimensionals.
I adhered the tree panel to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base with dimensionals and finished it with three Gilded Gems.
I stamped the sentiment from the Free as a Bird cling stamp set in Bumblebee ink in the lower corner of a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with the tree line paper from Beauty of the Earth designer series paper pack and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship stamp set has pretty sentiments celebrating friendship and the woodland background makes it appropriate for anyone.
