Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s card, I used the wonderful Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon bundle with the beautiful New Horizons 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to make a masculine thank you card with an outdoors landscape. 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. Here is the pretty sketch we are using:
I embossed a panel of Gray Granite with the Timeworn Type embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Gray Granite card base. I stamped the grass stamp from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon cling stamp set in Evening Evergreen on a panel of New Horizons 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. I stamped the birds in the sky with Basic Gray ink and adhered the image to a Misty Moonlight mat.
I stamped stamped a Basic White panel with the wood stamp from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon stamp set using stamped off Gray Granite ink and cut it out with the fence die from the Horizon Dies. I used a sponge dauber to add more Gray Granite ink to distress the fence, giving it a weathered look. I used the grass die to cut three clumps from an Evening Evergreen panel of the New Horizons 6″ x 6″ DSP. I trimmed the end off the first and adhered it to the DSP over the stamped grass. I gently curved the fence and applied liquid glue to the first and last slat and adhered it to the panel over the grasses. I trimmed the end off the second die cut grass and adhered it under the fence with dimensionals.
I inked up the thanks part of the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink and stamped it on a Gray Granite panel. I cut it out with the Messages die and adhered it to the panel with glue dots. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals and adhered some Pebbles Enamel Shapes to the bottom around the fence and grasses.
For the inside, I stamped the grass stamp from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the birds in the top corner using Basic Gray ink. I adhered a strip of New Horizons 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom and adhered the last grass die cut on top. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! On the Horizon bundle is a lot of fun with it’s unique dies and great sentiments. And with the beautiful New Horizons 6″ x 6″ DSP, it is so easy to make beautiful watercolor landscape or seascape cards and be creative!
