Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I was happy to bring out the pretty Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window bundle for our color challenge this week, and I was glad that I got so many of our colors in the card – the only one I missed was Petal Pink. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a Color Challenge this week and here’s the pretty color palette we are using:
I stamped the grass from the Paradise Palms cling stamp set across the bottom of a panel of brick Bloom Where You’re Planted designer series paper in Pear Pizzazz and adhered it to the front of a Poppy Parade card base. I stamped three of the wide pots from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window photopolymer stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die.
I stamped four of the bushy plant greens from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window stamp set in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White. I stamped three of the flower stamps that go with the bushy plant in Highland Heather and stamped the fourth in Poppy Parade and cut all four out with the coordinating die. I adhered the pots to the card in the grass with glue dots, and adhered the Highland Heather flowers on top with dimensionals. I stamped the window and two of the shutters in Crumb Cake ink on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I adhered them to the card front with glue dots. I cut a panel of Crumb Cake with the shelf die and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the pitcher in Pool Party, cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the card with glue dots. I popped the Poppy Parade flowers on the vase with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window stamp set in Poppy Parade on a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and cut it out with the little tag die from the Hydrangea dies. I cut a piece of Basic White with the same die and adhered it to the back of the DSP die cut and looped a length of Linen Thread through the tag before adhering it to the card front.
For the inside, I stamped the pitcher from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window stamp set in Pool Party ink on the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the bushy plant greens in Pear Pizzazz and the coordinating flowers in Poppy Parade on top of the pitcher and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window bundle is so versatile with stamped and die cut windows and lots of accessories and great sentiments – especially for Spring! And it’s on sale with Savings are in Bloom going on this month!!
