Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have a just because card to share today made with the beautiful new Stampin’ Up! True Beauty bundle with the retiring Flowering Fields designer series paper. 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 and here is the sketch we are using:
I adhered an Old Olive panel of Flowering Fields designer series paper to a Mango Melody panel of the DSP with liquid glue and adhered the layered DSP to an Old Olive mat. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty cling stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink in the lower corner. I cut two berry sprigs from Blackberry Bliss card stock using the Organic Beauty dies and adhered them to the DSP panel with liquid glue.
I stamped three large roses from the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty stamp set in Poppy Parade on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I stamped three sets of leaves in Mossy Meadow and four small flowers in Mango Melody on Basic White. I cut all the leaves and small flowers out with the coordinating dies.
I arranged the flowers and leaves and adhered the leaves and small flowers to the DSP panel with glue dots. I adhered the top rose with glue dots and popped the last two flowers on with dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the front of a Poppy Parade card base with dimensionals and finished with three faux pearls.
For the inside, I cut two masks for the roses and stamped the first rose in the lower corner of a basic white panel in Poppy Parade ink. I covered it with a mask and stamped the second. I covered both roses and stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The flowers in the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty stamp set are just beautiful – with the Distinktive look so that you get multiple shades in one stamp! And each flower has a coordinating die, so you don’t have to fussy cut – Yay!! And it goes beautifully with the retiring Flowering Fields DSP (which is currently on SALE). Be sure to check it out along with the other items in the Awash in Beauty Suite!
