Stampin’ Up! Wood Words Note for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  If you’ve been following along, you’ll know this is color week!  I think you’ll see some pretty projects today from the ladies-who-hop, so be sure to spend a little time checking them out!

Here’s our color palette…

I decided to use the pretty floral image in the new Wood Words stamp set (available 1 June) and some more of the Wood Textures DSP Stack (also 1 June) paper to make a quick and easy note card for you – take a look-see:

My layout was loosely inspired by the sketch over at Stamp, Ink Paper:

This one took me less than hour to put together and that included 15 minutes sitting at my crafting desk, staring blankly into space wondering what in the world to make!  It’s been a bit of a week here at my house, folks – and my creatin’ neurons weren’t firing too well!  Speaking of which – Wayne did great in his surgery yesterday and got home speedy quick!  Thank you all so very much for the many well wishes and prayers we received!!  I’m grateful to each and every one of you!

So, I started with a dark wood paper design from the wondrous Wood Textures DSP Stack, and matted it on Peekaboo Peach card stock.

For the second layer, I chose a white-washed wood design and heat embossed the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set in Copper.  Using my Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers, I colored the flowers and leaves.

The sentiment, from Wood Words, I stamped in Chocolate Chip ink, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to position it where I wanted it.  Then I matted the panel on Peekaboo Peach and SNAILd it to the card front.

I wrapped a piece of the new 1/4″ Copper Trim around the whole panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I tied a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside of the card, I again heat embossed the Wood Words floral image – this time in White – on a Whisper White panel (it’s hard to see in the picture – sorry! 😔).  Then I colored the flowers and leaves with my markers.

I SNAILd the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Pear Pizzazz card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the White Embossed florals from Wood Words…

…and some more of the white-washed Wood Textures DSP paper on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Easy and beautiful – I love how the rustic wood paper works so beautifully with the copper in the embossing and the new 1/4″ Copper Trim.  Hope you like – and are adding this to your wish list if it wasn’t there already! 😉
