Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Happiness for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I decided to go “obvious” when I saw the sketch and pulled out the new Pocketful of Happiness stamp set and the matching Pocket Dies to make a birthday card for the challenge!  Take a look-see:

Here’s our sketch:

I also pulled elements from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with some woodgrain paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

Next up is a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the Corrugated Embossing Folder and matted on Soft Sea Foam – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large and small floral images from Pocketful of Happiness in Tuxedo Black.  I used the matching die from the Pocket Die set to cut the large image and I fussy cut the small flower.

To color the images, I used the Dark Stampin’ Blends in Petal Pink, So Saffron, Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the “pocket” and the smaller flower images to the card front.  Then, cuz…hello?  It’s me!…I stamped the large image again and fussy cut the dove, then popped her over the first dove with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With the Well Written Dies, I cut three sentiments in Basic Black and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I added a gold Metallic Pearl to the card front – two in flower centers and one off to the side on the pocket.  Finally, with a Glue Dot, I adhered a small bow tied from Linen Thread.  And..that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a sentiment from the Pocketful of Happiness set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to a Whisper White panel.  I also added the floral spray image and colored it with my Stampin’ Blends.  I added a gold Metallic Pearl in the middle of the flower, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the floral spray image on the front…

…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the florals in the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set – and the sentiments range from birthday to thank you, in lovely fonts.  And the Well Written Die set is just such a workhorse – I really LOVE word dies!  I hope you like!
