Happy St. Patrick’s Day and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms bundle to make a little miss you card. This bundle comes with a pretty set of cling floral stamps with sweet sentiments and a two sided punch that punches out leaves on one side and flowers on the other. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a Sketch Challenge this week and here’s the pretty sketch that inspired my card:
I used the fourth largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a panel of the pretty Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a Just Jade mat. I punched two leaves with the Bough Punch from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms bundle from Mint Macaron and adhered them to the panel with glue dots. I punched three flowers and adhered them to the panel with glue dots. I adhered the panel to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with dimensionals.
I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms stamp set in Polished Pink and fussy cut it out with a thin white edge. I adhered the flower to the card with dimensionals and made a double bow with white crinkle ribbon and tucked it under the flower, adhering it with a glue dot.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder and heat set the sentiment until it was shiny. I cut the sentiment out with the second smallest long skinny rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles dies and adhered it to a Just Jade mat. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals and finished the card front off with adhesive sequins.
For the inside, I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms stamp set in Polished Pink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I made a mask from copy paper and covered the flower and stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron and the small flowers in daffodil delight. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Abstract Beauty DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Boughs and Blossoms bundle is really sweet and the perfect set for making springtime floral cards for every occasion.
