Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! We’ve got a color sketch today – and it’s a great one! – so be sure to check out all the ladies’ projects when you’re done here, won’t you?
I love black and white together and being able to pick the third color is especially fun! I decided to use Bermuda Bay (with maybe a little Pool Party thrown in – it’s hard to tell!) and pulled out the wonderful Myths & Magic Specialty DSP. Then I threw in a few Large Letters and some Petal Passion DSP. Take a look-see:
Here’s the Blog Hop badge – just so you know it’s for real! 🙂 Thanks, Amy, for the fun challenge!
I started with some Petal Passion DSP and matted it on a panel of Bermuda Bay card stock. I wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon – from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack in the Sale-A-Bration flyer (yes – you can get three rolls of Shimmer Ribbon – one each in Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray and Calypso Coral with a $50 purchase!) – around the panel securing it in the back with a little bit of Fast Fuse.
For the middle panel – where the sentiment is located – I took a Basic Black panel, embossed it in the Simple Stripes TIEF, and matted it on Bermuda Bay. Then I Fast Fuse’d it over the ribbon on the card front.
I cut the sentiment with the Large Letters Framelits from a piece of shimmery paper in the Myths & Magic Specialty DSP. I also cut two more of each letter/punctuation from Basic Black card stock, stacked them all up with Liquid Glue and adhered them to the card front.
I picked another piece of the Petal Passion DSP and colored some flowers with my Light and Dark Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends, then fussy cut them. I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional. Finally, I added a Pearl Basic Jewel to each flower and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the All Things Thanks stamp set (using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) in Bermuda Bay on a Whisper White panel. In the corner, in Basic Black Archival Ink, I added the large and lovely flower from the Petal Palette stamp set and colored it with my Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
I repeated the Petal Palette stamp set flower on the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…
…and added a little more of the Petal Passion DSP to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! The Large Letters Framelits are one of those tools that, like your KitchenAid stand mixer, you might not use every day. Or even every week! But – when you need it – you need it and it’s good to have it at the ready. Of course, the Petal Palette stamp set and the coordinating Petal Passion DSP, from the 2018 Occasions Catalog is a heavy favorite! I hope you like!

We’re calling it the Red Box Challenge, and it’s easy to get in on the fun!
Simply put together a WOW project using an unused, past kit—or buy a past kit that you’ve had your eye on. Then share an image of your project on Facebook or Instagram with #redboxchallenge and you will be entered into a random drawing to win a Paper Pumpkin kit.
Now, we think all of our kits are wonderful and amazing–but our random drawing winners will receive the upcoming Paper Pumpkin fifth anniversary March kit. Think: Gorgeous and collectible. Everyone is going to want one. AND the winners will get it in their mailbox before anyone else.
Sound fun? Check out the terms and conditions here, then start crafting your Red Box Challenge project today!
