Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a fun sketch challenge to work with 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 pulled out the wunnermus new Online Exclusive Garden Meadow bundle and the stunningly gorgeous Meandering Meadow 6″ x 6″ DSP to make a very quick birthday card. Take a look-see:
And – here’s our sketch. You can see I turned it on it’s side. Tilt your head – you’ll see it! 🙂
I selected just ONE of the 12 gorgeous designs in the Meandering Meadow DSP...
…and matted it on Crushed Curry cardstock for the card front. I popped the matted panel onto a larger Basic White mat using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut two 1/2″ strips of the DSP – the BACK of this paper is less “scenic” and very useful on your projects!
I adhered the two strips to the card front with Liquid Glue – lining the left edges up with the edge of the card front – and overlapping the two strips slightly.
I tied a bow from a piece of Parakeet Party twine from the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Garden Meadow sentiment in Garden Green ink. This pretty bundle is so fun – I LOVE the dies!! EVERY image in the stamp set has a coordinating die! And that GATE!! Whooo-hoo!
I cut out the sentiment with a label from the Something Fancy die set.
Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the sentiment over the bow.
I added a few dragonflies from the Adhesive-backed Dragonflies & Birds (oh my gosh, y’all – these are just the BEST! Gold. Adhesive-backed. And THIN!! YEAH!) flitting here and there – and the card front was done.
On the inside, I stamped a sweet flower from Garden Meadow in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored the flowers with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and the leaves with the Dark Lemon Lime Twist Blend. And – cuz I could – I added a sweet little dragonfly!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Crushed Curry and Basic White mats and then into my Garden Green card base – adhered the card front with Liquid Glue – and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the small Garden Meadow flower on the front…
…and a little more of the Meandering Meadow 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Y’all – I hope you’re marking your calendars! I know you want it all – how can you help it?! You’ll be able to pick up the stunning Meandering Meadow DSP, the Garden Meadow bundle AND the Adhesive-backed Dragonflies & Birds – and MORE! – 0n 7 Nov. Whoo-hoo!!
