Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I pulled out the pretty Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest bundle again for today’s card and I combined it with the pretty Sale A Bration Be Dazzling specialty paper for a sparkling thank you card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a theme challenge this week with the theme of Autumn/Harvest:
I also entered my card into the Sunday Stamps SSC265 Sunflower Dreams Challenge. I substituted coneflowers for Sunflowers, but I did use all the pretty fall colors:
I embossed a Very Vanilla panel with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and used a blending brush to lightly apply Soft Succulent ink to the top. I adhered it to a Soft Succulent mat. Then I embossed a Soft Succulent panel with the same embossing folder and applied Soft Suede ink around the edges. I cut a frame from the Be Dazzling specialty paper and two of the Stitched Rectangles dies and adhered the Soft Succulent embossed panel to the back and adhered them both to the Very Vanilla embossed panel with liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the front of a Cajun Craze card base with dimensionals.
I stamped the large coneflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest cling stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Harvest Dies. I colored the flowers with Soft Suede, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I colored the stems with the Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. I cut Bumblebee card stock with the wheat die and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the flowers on top with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla and cut it out with the small label die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots, tucking it under the flowers. I made a bow with Bumblebee gingham ribbon and adhered it with glue dots and finished the front with three champagne rhinestones.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set in stamped off Soft Suede ink on the side of a Very Vanilla panel. I embossed another strip of Soft Succulent card stock with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and applied Soft Suede ink with a blending brush. I adhered the strip to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card. And since the flower image is so pretty, I decided to stamp the front of a Very Vanilla medium envelope to match.
The Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest bundle is one of my favorites and doesn’t the Be Dazzling specialty paper make it pop? I should have thought a little more because this would have been the perfect background for a special Fall birthday card. I guess I’ll just have to make another one.
