Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet Wedding Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made an elegant wedding card with the new Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set to share today.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:

I started by stamping the Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp set on a panel of Basic Black card stock using VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the third largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies. I cut a panel of Gold Foil and ran it through the Subtle embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I popped the embossed gold foil on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals. I popped the floral embossed basic black die cut panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Whisper White. I sprinkled Gold embossing powder on it and heat set. I cut it out with a Stitched Nested Label die. I stamped the top of the birthday cake from the Happy Birthday to You Sale-A-Bration stamp set twice on a panel of Basic Black card stock in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled them with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I cut each cluster with the coordinating die from the Birthday Dies and I fussy cut the top flower in each cluster. I put one aside for the inside of the card.

I cut the leaf spray from the Birthday dies on a panel of Gold foil giving me two dies. I adhered the dies and label to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the Happy Birthday to You flower to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a gold glitter enamel dot.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Forever Blossoms on a Whisper White panel using VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I added a strip of Gold foil that was embossed with the Subtle embossing folder to the bottom and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail. I finished the inside with the second Happy Birthday to You embossed flower.

It’s fun to use Foil in making cards, and it is so elegant and beautiful when embossed. Good thing there are Weddings to have an excuse to be so extravagant!

Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet and Happy Birthday To You Sneak Peeks

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek for stamp sets in the new Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. My card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set from the new Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Both of these will be available on January 3, 2020. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The background is made with the Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set from the Mini Catalog. Isn’t it pretty? It is a background cling stamp set with line images just bursting with flowers. For this card, I mounted it in my Stamparatus and stamped it in Versamark ink on a Balmy Blue panel. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set.

Then I cut a strip of vellum with one of the Delicate Lace Dies and wrapped it around the panel, adhering it in the back with snail. I wrapped a length of the new Whisper White crinkled seam binding ribbon around the edge and adhered it in the back with snail. I adhered the panel to a Balmy Blue card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the floral cake from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set in smoky slate ink on a panel of Whisper White. This is one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that will be available FREE with a $50 purchase (before shipping and taxes) starting January 3, 2020! I colored the image with Balmy Blue, Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I accented the Balmy Blue flowers with Wink of Stella (too bad you can’t see the shimmer very well) and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I added the bow made with the crinkle seam binding ribbon and three pearls.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Balmy Blue on a panel of Whisper White. I stamped and heat embossed a strip of Balmy Blue to match the front and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet is going to be an awesome addition to the lineup of background stamps, providing lots of versatility in creating a feminine florals. And one of the stamps that it coordinates with perfectly is the birthday cake in the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration stamp set. Both will be available on January 3, 2020.
