Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! It’s sketch week and I know our talented ladies will come up with some awesome projects for you so, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to browse thru all our blogs today! 🙂
Here’s the sketch we’re all playing with….
I decided to go kind of Old-School – meaning I used mostly products from the Annual Catalog. More specifically, I went back to one of my favorite sets – the Grateful Bunch stamp set and matching Blossom Bunch Punch. And I snagged a cute sentiment (I like the font!) from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set. Take a look-see:
I started by double matting a piece of the Sending Love DSP Stack paper – first on Daffodil Delight and then on Real Red. Then I wrapped a length of Real Red 3/8″ Striped Satin Ribbon around the panel and secured it in the back with scotch tape.
Next up, I cut a Real Red heart with a die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, and embossed it in the Hearts TIEF. Using a Glue Dot, I wrapped a couple three loops of Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine onto the card front, then popped the heart on top (DE-bossed side up!) with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used the triple-flower image stamp in the Grateful Bunch stamp set to make several Daffodil Delight flowers on Whisper White, then punched them out with the Blossom Bunch Punch. I could have used them like that, but I wanted them to look even more daisy-ish. so I went ahead and fussy cut them – which eliminated the white edge. Then I used my Bone Folder to gently curl the tips of the petals.
I colored the centers of the large and small flowers with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, then added a Daffodil Delight Enamel Shape.
The sentiment, from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set, is stamped in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White and cut into a banner with my Paper Snips. I edged it with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the heart with Liquid Glue.
Finally, I spread my little daisies all around the heart and sentiment with Liquid Glue, and that was it for the card front!
On the inside, I stamped some more Daffodil Delight Grateful Bunch flowers in the corner of a Whisper White panel, and colored their centers with the Real Red Marker.
I double matted the panel on Daffodil Delight and Real Red, and SNAILd it into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Grateful Bunch flowers on the front…
…and some of the Sending Love DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I love how the elements from the different stamp and framelits sets came together with the new Sending Love DSP to create a sunshine-y clean and layered birthday card! Hope you like! 🙂
