Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Birthday 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 a cool sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw our sketch, I right away thought of the new Posted for You bundle with the stamp set and coordinating Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  So…that’s what I used – and I paired it with some beautiful Artistry Blooms DSP.  Take a look-see:

And – our sketch!

I’m also playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Basic Black card stock that I ran thru my die cutting/embossing machine twice in the new Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.  I ran it thru once and then flipped the card stock around to emboss the other side.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the front of my Basic Black card base.

I cut a piece of Artistry Blooms DSP and embossed it in the second folder from the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders – the one with the butterflies…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel onto a Daffodil Delight mat and then onto the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp two of the images in the Posted For You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When the ink was dry, I cut each of the images with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

Using my Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils, I colored the images.

Then I popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I stamped the Posted For You sentiment in Calypso Coral on Whisper White and cut it with the small Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using Glue Dots – I adhered a short length of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon – then I adhered the sentiment over top with Liquid Glue.

A few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Posted For You sentiment in Calypso Coral on Whisper White.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green, I added the post-mark image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into the card base, and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the post-mark image in Granny Apple Green on the front…

…and more of the Artistry Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a sweet and simple stamp set – the images and sentiments are lovely.  And – I really love the bundled Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch (yes – I know – I love ALL punches – but THIS one is sort of perfect!!).

Et Voila!  I hope you like. 🙂

And – this is one of THIRTY-FOUR bundles you can choose from when you join the team before the end of June during the Pick a FREE Bundle Joining Special!  Just throwing that out there!  😉

  1. Gorgeous card Mary 🙂 Love how your flowers only have a touch of color and that little bird is perfect in the center.

  2. Love this card, Mary! I have that set on my next order, and, though in the beginning I didn’t care for the Artistry Blooms DSP, You and Karen K have used it so well I will probably have to add it to my order too! Love the embossing, but I am a sucker for embossing folders and dies!

    • stampsnlingers

      The DSP is pretty in person, for sure! I think you’ll like it when you see it! And I’m the same about embossing folders! Thanks, Julie! 🙂

  3. Oh, boy, more product to add to my order. I didn’t think I needed this punch nor the stamp set but you and Amy have encouraged me, unknowingly, that not only do I need them, I WANT them!! Your card is beautiful. Oh, and I definitely need the EF’s!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – ALL embossing folders will be MIIIIINNNEEE!!!! Bwahahahaha!! Thanks so much, Karen! 🙂

  4. Sweet card! Apparently we both had postage stamps on the brain with this sketch. 😉 Love your colors and layers!
