Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a 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!
So – yesterday afternoon (okay – it was more like dinner time, cuz I’d been playing with my new goodies and doing some craft room organzing!) the power went out. Right in the middle of making my card.
It wasn’t looking good, my peeps!
But – I pushed on thru – and created a card for you with a new bundle that I’ve been itching to get my hands on since I first saw it. The Celebrate Sunflowers bundle! Take a look-see:
And here’s our sketch!
You guys should have seen me – check it out…
I’m not going to say I’m dedicated but…c’mon! Battery operated lantern!?! 😉 I figure this is how Laura Ingalls Wilder’s craft room would have looked if she’d been Blogging on the Prairie! 😉
So – I started with a piece of Bumble Bee paper in the brand new World of Good Specialty DSP (available on 3 Jun!) that I embossed in the wonderful – also coming on 3 Jun – Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (makes it look like I wadded it up and smoothed it out!) and matted on Cinnamon Cider card stock.
I cut a Very Vanilla Stitched Rectangle Die and embossed it in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I used some Glue Dots to adhere the brand-spanking-new Antiqued Corners & Slides to three of the corners. Y’all – I don’t have the words to express how much I LOVE these little embellishments!!
For the flower and leaves, I first stamped the big Celebrate Sunflower flower in Crushed Curry on Very Vanilla – and cut it with the solid die in the Sunshine Dies. I used the detailed flower die to cut a Crushed Curry flower and adhered it with Liquid Glue.
I stamped two large leaves in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla and painted them with my Clear Wink of Stella – pulling the ink into the leaf. I cut two detailed leaves from Mossy Meadow and adhered them with Liquid Glue. I cut some solid leaves from Cinnamon Cider and Mossy Meadow.
The sentiment, from Celebrate Sunshine, is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla. I used a Stitched Rectangle Die – moving it to create a slightly longer die to accommodate the length of the sentiment.
Then it was time to build my collage and take my picture.
I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue. Then I added a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon (Boy – I am REALLY going to miss this! 🙁 ). Then I popped the sunflower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is adhered with Dimensionals and Liquid Glue
The finishing touch was a Bumble Bee enamel dot from the new 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Celebrate Sunshine in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel. In the corner, using the Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber inking technique to color and stamp the small flower from the set in Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow. I used my Clear Wink of Stella and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend – then added some little Soft Suede dots with my Stampin’ Write Marker.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another small sunflower on the front…
…and more of the World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I absolutely love love LOVE this Celebrate Sunflowers bundle, don’t you? And with the addition of some wonderful goodies from the World of Good Suite – like the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder, World of Good Specialty DSP and some Antiqued Corners & Slides and….we’ve got a winner!! Of course, you can get the Scripty 3D Folder and the Burlap Ribbon (while it lasts!) right now – the rest? Got to wait until 3 June! I hope you like!
