Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Thank You for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! My Thank You card for today uses the Stampin’ Up! Art In Bloom bundle. This bundle has a hybrid embossing folder that combines a 3D embossing folder with dies that allow you to emboss and cut in one step! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week for our Blog Hop and here’s the color palette we’re using:

I adhered strip of Misty Moonlight Harvest Meadow designer series paper to the Bumblebee Harvest Meadow panel and adhered them both to a Crumb Cake mat. I adhered the panel to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base with dimensionals.

I used my blending brush to apply Calypso Coral ink to a Basic White panel and stamped it with the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art In Bloom photopolymer stamp set using Calypso Coral ink. This stamp has all three flowers on a single stamp! Then I inserted the die into the Bloom hybrid embossing folder and carefully aligned my flowers with the die and embossing folder and ran it through my die cutting machine. I love how I get embossed flowers after die cutting! I adhered two of the flowers onto the card front with glue dots and the top one with dimensionals. I cut three sets of detailed leaves dies from Soft Succulent and adhered them with glue dots, tucking them under the flowers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Biggest Wish photopolymer stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Crumb Cake panel and cut it out with the second smallest Tailor Made Tags dies. I cut a reinforcement from Misty Moonlight and adhered it before looping a length of Crumb Cake twine through the hole and tying a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front with glue dots and finished it with three adhesive sequins.

For the inside of the card, I stamped bits of the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art In Bloom stamp set in the corners of a Basic White panel with Calypso Coral ink. I cut some masks from printer paper and covered the flowers and stamped the leaves in Soft Succulent. I adhered a strip of Bumblebee Harvest Meadows DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to a Crumb Cake mat before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art In Bloom bundle make it so easy to make a pretty bouquet of flowers to go with any color palette. And when they’re embossed, it make your card extra special!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! My Thank You card for today uses a Sale A Bration item – the Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home cling stamp set. This is a sweet stamp set with a simple front door and bicycle that you can choose to get for FREE with an order of $50 before shipping and taxes. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week for our Blog Hop and here’s the sketch we’re using:

I adhered panel of Harvest Meadow designer series paper to the Bloom Where You’re Planted panel and adhered them both to the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I stamped front door from the Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the image with a combination of Stampin’ Blends and Watercolor Pencils. I used Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Cider, Pool Party, Old Olive, Soft Succulent, Smoky Slate, Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends. I used Basic Black, Pacific Point, Garden Green, Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils. I used the blending brush to lightly apply Crumb Cake and Cinnamon Cider ink around the edge of the image to give it a vintage look and adhered the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat.

I used the blending brush to apply a light wash of Cinnamon Cider ink to the label and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home stamp set in Early Espresso ink. I really love the script font in the sentiment – it looks handwritten! I adhered the sentiment to the art panel with dimensionals and applied them both to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a bumblebee trinket adhered with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little plant from the Stampin’ Up Feels Like Home stamp set in Early Espresso ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored it with Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil. I adhered a strip of Harvest Meadow DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home stamp set has some sweet images and wonderful sentiments. And it was fun to pull out the color pencils to do some coloring. I need to do that more!
