Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight cling stamp set and dies are a wonderful floral set that carried over from the last mini catalog. The sweet stamped flowers are so petite and there are dies that cut them out. I paired the flowers with the Charming Sentiments photopolymer stamp set and Sentiment Silhouettes dies for a Congratulations card. 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 for our Blog Hop this week, and it’s to use the new 2023-2025 In Colors! Yay!!
I embossed a Basic White panel with the Cane Weave 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Moody Mauve mat. I popped the layered panel on the front of a Thick Basic White card base. I stamped the two flower bunches from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set on a Basic White panel using Pebbled Path ink. I cut the flowers out with the coordinating dies.
I used a small water painter to color the flowers using Boho Blue, Moody Mauve, Copper Clay, Wild Wheat and Granny Apple Green inks. The images are small so it works out fine to color on the Basic White card stock, but I did keep the water painter more on the dry side and didn’t let the water puddle on the paper. I also kept a paper towel handy to dry the brush and to flush and clean the tip between colors. After coloring, I adhered the flowers to the card with glue dots.
I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments in Versamark ink on a Pebbled Path panel and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heated the powder with my heat tool. I cut out the sentiment with the coordinating die and adhered it to the card with glue dots. I colored a length of Linen Thread with the dark Moody Mauve Stampin’ Blend and made a bow. I adhered the bow to the card with a glue dot and finished the card with Brushed Butterfly gems.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the large flower bunch from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set in Pebbled Path ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I used the small water painter to color the flowers the same as the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Pebbled Path ink on the center of the panel and adhered it to a Moody Mauve mat before adhering it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
It’s Graduation time, so I was thinking of a sweet congratulations card for a young woman graduating with a bright future when I made this card. I love the look that the new In Colors give to the sweet flowers with the water color technique!
