Stampin' Up Shaded Summer Thanks Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Happy Friday Eve everyone! Welcome to another week with the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Krew.  This week the Krew was given a theme: Butterflies and Bugs, so I pulled out an oldie but a goodie: Butterfly Brilliance.

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock that I adhered strips of Stampin' Up Subtle DSP (Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam) to the edge with liquid adhesive.  I adhered it toe a Blushing Bride card base.

I die cut flowers and leaves from Blushing Bride, Petal PInk and Soft Sea Foam card stock with Stampin' Up Summer Shadows Dies.  I stamped butterflies from Stampin' Up Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set with Night of Navy ink on Basic White.  I colored the large butterfly with Stampin' Up Watercolor Pencils.

I die cut the butterflies with Stampin' Up Brillant Wing Dies.  I adhered the flowers and leaves to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals and liquid adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set using Night of Navy ink on a piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock.  I die cut the sentiment with Stampin' Up Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I finshed the front off with Stampin' Up Genial Gems.

The inside is a panel of Basic White with Subtle DSP adhered to the edge.  I stamped the sentiment with Night of Navy ink.

The color scheme works great with Sunday Stampers Challenge.

Thanks so much for participating in this weeks blog hop, up next is: Terry Lynn
