Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs Card

Good Morning! If you’re a purple lover, I have a card for you today! I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs bundle to make today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I was inspired by the bold and beautiful color palette in Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC263 – Beautiful Blooms:

I started by stamping the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel and coloring the flowers and leaves with Stampin’ Blends. I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Just Jade, Shaded Spruce and Highland Heather.

I used the largest Scalloped Contours die to cut a Gorgeous Grape panel and adhered the image on top. I cut the letters from the Layering Hugs dies from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs bundle using more Gorgeous Grape card stock and adhered them to the panel with tiny dots of liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs stamp set in Real Red ink on Basic White and cut it out with the small label die. I adhered it to the panel with dimensionals. I added a Real Red bow and scattered red rhinestones around the arrangement and popped the panel on the front of a Gorgeous Grape card base.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs bundle in the corner of a Basic White panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it with Just Jade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I hope you like this card with it’s bold colors. The Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs bundle has a big, beautiful hugs in the form of a stamped image like my card today or a floral filigree die cut which I’ll use next week. And I think I’ll use a more subtle color palette to show how versatile this beautiful bundle is.
