Stampin’ Up! Peonies and Dandelions 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 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!

I circled back to an early 2020-2021 Annual Catalog favorite – the Prized Peony Bundle and coordinating Peony Garden DSP for today’s card.  To that, I added the subtle wonderfulness of the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder.  I decided that it would be perfect as a sympathy card – and, since it’s always good to have one of those in hand…that’s what I made! Take a look-see:

And…here’s our sketch!

The theme of the card fits perfectly over at the Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week!

I started with some quiet, Gray Granite paper from the Peony Garden DSP that I matted on Petal Pink for the card front.

Next, I took a piece of Petal Pink card stock and cut three sides of it with the long edgelit die in the Peony Die set.  Then I embossed the panel in the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder.  I VERY lightly Sponge Daubered some Petal Pink on the flowers and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped my sentiment – from Prized Peony – in Gray Granite on Whisper White and cut it with a label die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To create the peony flower – I cut the four pieces needed using the Peony Dies – from Vellum card stock.  I colored each piece with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend Marker.  I also used a Sponge Dauber to color the bottom of each piece with Petal Pink ink (for depth).  I curled the four pieces with my Bone Folder and then assembled the flower – using a Glue Dot near the bottom between each layer.

If you want to see how to create these gorgeous flowers, I’ve done a video on how to assemble them – you can check it out right here!

I created a flower center by cutting the appropriate die from Vellum and coloring it with my Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend.  I stuck it into the middle of the flower with a tiny dab of Liquid Glue.

For the leaves – I cut all of the leaf dies from Vellum.  Then, the solid leaves I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I colored the solid leaves with my Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend and the smaller (detail pieces) with the Dark Mossy Meadow Blend.  I adhered the pieces together with little dabs of Liquid Glue and curled them with the Bone Folder.

I adhered the leaves to the card front – then added the flower over top with a few Glue Dots.

I adhered a small Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon bow with a Glue Dot, popped on a few Champagne Rhinestone Jewels – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Prized Peony in Gray Granite on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped the small flower image in Gray Granite and then used my Light Petal Pink Blend to color JUST the shading marks on the flowers.  A single Champagne Rhinestone finished it up.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Gray Granite card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Gray Granite and Petal Pink Prized Peony flowers across the bottom…

…and a little more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – what an amazing and awesome and wunnermus creation this Prized Peony Bundle is, don’t you think?!?  I mean…how clever to come up with a way to create a peony with just four small pieces of card stock.  Stampin’ Up! artists!  Am I right?!?

And the subtle elegance of the Peony Garden DSP is undeniable!

I hope you like – and have added this one to your stash of goodies!

Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays to You Dandelion

Good morning and HAPPY HAPPY HAWWWWMP DAY!!!  Yeah!

And – know what else today is?

No?

Well – it’s the day that we SU! demonstrators get to see the new 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog in digital format!  Whoo-hooo!!!  Today at 3pm Eastern, to be exact.  So…you know what I’ll be doing then, right?!  Yep – perusing it to see what I want to PRE-ORDER on 1 JULY!

Want to get an early look and your hands on the new goodies early, too?  AND get $125 worth of goodies from the current catalog PLUS a free BUNDLE of your choice?  And Free shipping on all those goodies?? And 20-25% off on everything you purchase (including the aforementioned pre-order??!).

Well – NOW is the time to join the team!  But – this super-duper-Joining Special ends on 30 Jun, so….best get after it!  Check out down below for the deets and then let’s get you hooked up! 🙂

Now – with that plug out of the way, I have a card today that’s been on my gotta-make-it list since I saw the sample on page 103 in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  I love the new Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder – and…this card, paired with the new Happiest of Birthdays stamp set – is a beaut!  Take a look-see:

I loved the sample so much that I really wanted to make it for you without much change – all I did was tweak it a bit for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.

I started with a piece of Vellum card stock that I embossed in the new Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder.

I turned the panel over and used my Bermuda Bay Watercolor Pencil to color just the leaves and stems.

I used Glue Dots under the embossed parts of the vellum to adhere it to a Pool Party panel.  Then I adhered the whole thing to a Pool Party mat with Stampin’ Seal.

Using my Light Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend, I colored a length of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon.  When it was dry, I wrapped the ribbon twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  Then I wrapped a length of Linen Thread around and tied a little bow.

I stamped a sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays in Mint Macaron on Whisper White then cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  I cut it and then I re-positioned the die and ran it thru the die cutting machine a second time to make the sentiment shorter.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the sentiment over the ribbon on the card front.

I used my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend to color some of the new Butterfly Gems (I colored the Seaside Spray gems) and adhered them to the card front – and the card was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a second Happiest of Birthdays sentiment in Mint Macaron onto a Whisper White panel.  I added a few more of the colored Butterfly Gems.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Bermuda Bay butterflies from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set on the front…

…and a little Mint Macaron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a big and beautiful sentiment stamp set this Happiest of Birthdays set is!

And – I love dandelion images of all sorts – and a Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder? Oh yes!!  My goodness!!

I hope you like and…will be adding these goodies to your stash post haste! 😉

Finn gave me one more day in “his” spot so that I can share the rest of the great birthday cards I got this week from my friends, teammates and customers!

This lovely floral card is from CNCK teammate Clara Shore!!

Inkin’ Krew teammate Barbara Simmons sent this Poppy beauty…

Elisha Smith, a fellow SU! demonstrator from Neil Armstrong’s birthplace in Ohio, sent a lovely fun-fold!  The middle piece slides up and off to reveal the gate fold!

A lovely friend, Susan Heine, who, along with a group of talented ladies, uses my retired papers, ribbons and embellishments in their quilt and card ministry for veterans – sent these two sweet cards!

My CNCK team member, Terry Lynn Bright, made a fun birthday card with the So Much Happy Bundle and Playing with Patterns DSP.

And, another of my lovely CNCK team members, Susan Kuenzel, sent this fun card!

Wow.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I have been so blessed with all the folks that I’ve met and become friends with since I joined Stampin’ Up!  I am so very grateful to each and every one of you for helping me to ring in my 29th birthday! 🙄😎
