Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I pulled out the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts bundle for today’s card because I wanted to try it out in another color palette. And the results are just as beautiful as with the the coordinating specialty DSP. You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a color challenge this week and here is the pretty color palette we are using:

I embossed a Basic White panel with the Fern 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Night of Navy card base. I adhered a panel of Sun Prints designer series paper to the cad front with liquid glue and started stamping and cutting my plants.

I stamped the long leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Gray Granite on a Basic White panel. I stamped the filler stamp a couple of times over the sprig using stamped off Gray Granite and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut the long leaf from the light part of a panel of Starry Sky glimmer paper, the round leaf sprig from Pacific Point card stock and the small skinny leaf from Basic White. I arranged and adhered the die cuts to the card front with glue dots.

I cut the bowl from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts bundle from a Gray Granite print in the Sun Prints DSP and Gray Granite card stock. I adhered these together with liquid glue and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite ink and fussy cut it with my paper snips. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and finished the card with a Starry Sky metallic ribbon bow and iridescent pearls.

For the inside, I stamped the long leaf sprig in Gray Granite ink on a Basic White panel after stamping off. I stamped off the filler leaves twice before stamping over the plant and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Sun Prints DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts bundle is just beautiful and elegant, so of course it would look pretty in different colors. The Sun Prints DSP has an etherial quality that is beautiful on it’s own, so check out both of these items for making beautiful cards.
