Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today 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!
I decided to play with the Elegantly Said stamp set for today’s card. I just got the pretty metallic-foiled Simply Elegant Specialty DSP and made a card with my fave design in the pack! Take a look-see:
And here’s our hop sketch challenge.
I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. Went across the middle row. 🙂
I started with a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that I embossed in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Then I used a Blender Brush to very lightly brush the ridges and swirls of the embossed image with Whisper White Kraft Ink.
I matted the panel on Smoky Slate for the card front. Using Stampin’ Seal – I adhered a Square Vellum Doily.
I cut my fave design from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut a piece of Copper Foil with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die – embossed it in the Painted Texture folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
Using the large foliage die in the Forever Flourishing Die set, I cut a piece of Gold Foil – then adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue.
I tied a small simple bow with the Silver twine from the new Simply Elegant Trim pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
I placed a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into my Stamparatus and, using the Marker-to-Stamp technique – colored and stamped just the first part of the Elegantly Said sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I cut it with the Rectangle Stitched Die.
I stamped the Elegantly Said floral image in Smoky Slate over top of the sentiment. Then I used a couple of Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment onto the card front.
A few silver Metallic Pearls finished it off!
On the inside, I again used my Stamparatus – this time coloring the SECOND half of the sentiment with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel. I added the floral in Smoky Slate and a single silver Metallic Pearl.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Elegantly Said floral on the front in Smoky Slate…
…and more of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This truly IS Simply Elegant paper, is it not? And the gorgeous images and sentiments in the Elegantly Said bundle complement it perfectly!
I hope you like!
