Stampin' Up Grassy Grove Sympathy Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Happy Friday Eve!  Welcome to another week with the Happy Inkin' Thurday Blog Hop.  This week the Krew was given a sketch and I used Stampin' Up Grassy Grove Stamp Set.  

Here is this weeks sketch:

I started the card front by die cutting a piece of Stampin' Up Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with Stampin' Up Grove Dies.  I added color with Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede and water with Stampin' Up Water Painter Brushes.  I let the die cut dry between each color so it would add texture with each color.  I repeated this process so I could layer them together.

I blended Pacific Point ink on a piece of Basic White card stock with Stampin' Up Blending Brushes.  I adhered the Basic White to an Old Olive card base with liquid adhesive.
I layered the watercolor die cuts to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I die cut 2 panels of Mossy Meadow card stock with Stampin' Up Layering Diorama Dies.  I adhered them to the card front with liquid adhesive.
I stamped a deer with Stampin' Up Grassy Grove Stamp Set using Early Espresso ink on a piece of Basic White.  I die cut the image with Stampin' Up Grove Dies.  I fed the die cut under several layers and adhered it.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set with Early Espresso ink on a piece of Basic White.  I die cut the sentiment with Stampin' Up Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the die cut to the card front.
The inside is a panel of Basic White with an image from Grassy Grove Stamp Set stamped using Old Olive ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.
