Stampin’ Up! Desert Details for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The Stampin’ Up! Desert Details bundle is a pretty South West themed stamp set with pretty Photopolymer stamps and dies and wonderful sentiments. II used it to make a friendship/encouragement Z-Fold card for today’s hop. 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:

I adhered panels of Delicate Desert designer series paper to the left side of the Calypso Coral card base and the front and back sides of the middle section. I used the the long embossed Stampin’ Up! Desert Details die to cut two strips of Calypso Coral and adhered the pretty die cuts to each side of the left section with liquid glue.

I cut a panel of Soft Succulent with the large Stampin’ Up! Desert Details large rectangle die and cut a panel of Delicate Desert DSP with the small one. I adhered the DSP rectangle to the card stock rectangle with liquid glue. I used the diamond die to cut four diamonds and adhered three to the large rectangle and one to the inside of the center section of the card base. I used the Agave die to cut another panel of Soft Succulent Delicate Desert DSP, keeping the centers of the leaves. I adhered the leaves to the rectangle with glue dots.

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details cling stamp set inPale Papaya ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I used the light Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blend to accent the shadows of the petals and adhered the flower to the large rectangle die cut with dimensionals. I tied a linen thread Bow and tucked it under the flower with a glue dot. I adhered the large die cut rectangle to the left panel of the card base with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details stamp set in Gray Granite ink on Basic White. I trimmed the sentiment with my trimmer, close to the sentiment and sniped diagonal ends. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots and finished the front with Pastel Iridescent gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the bottom and top of a Basic White panel with the long diamond stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Desert Details stamp set in Gray Granite ink. I adhered the last panel of Delicate Desert DSP to the right side and adhered the panel to the right section of the card base with Stampin’ Seal.

The pretty Stampin’ Up! Desert Details bundle is retiring at beginning of next month along with the Delicate Desert DSP. The pretty designs on the DSP I used remind me of beautiful South West sunsets. the embossed designs on the die cuts have a unique Native American feel that is beautiful and magic!
