Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’m using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat bundle to make a Good Day note card. You can find the currently available 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 we are using:
I adhered a panel of Design a Daydream designer series paper to the front of a Mint Macaron card base with liquid glue. I embossed a panel of Crumb Cake with the Fern 3D embossing folder.
I stamped the water from the Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat cling stamp set in Pool Party on a Basic White panel and used the light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color the grass. I applied Pear Pizzazz ink to the bottom and Pool Party ink to the top of the panel with Blending Brushes. I stamped the cattails and birds in Soft Suede. I adhered the panel to the embossed Crumb Cake panel and adhered the layered panels to the card front with liquid glue.
I cut the grass dies from the Heron dies and adhered all but two of the small grasses with liquid glue. I stamped the standing heron from the Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered it to the card front with pieces of dimensionals and adhered the last two grasses with dimensionals next to the bird. I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White and used the small label die to cut it out. I made a loopy bow from linen thread and adhered it to the back of the label with a glue dot before adhering it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the label with a rustic metallic dot.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the cattails and birds from the Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Basic White. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Design a Daydream DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I love the way the stamped cattails and water look with the die cut grasses in the Stampin’ Up! Heron Habitat bundle. And the label dies in the set are so cute with the heart cutouts!
