Stampin' Up Two Tone Flora Birthday Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another week with the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Krew! This week we were given a sketch to work with and I am sure that we are all going to be see a tons of amazing projects full of inspiration.  

Here's this weeks sketch:

I decided to pull out Stampin' Up Two Tone Flora Stamp Set.  I paired it with Stampin' Up Country Gingham DSP and Stampin' Up Textured Shimmer Paper.

I created the card front with a panel of Stampin' Up Gingham DSP with a strip of Stampin' Up Textured Shimmer Paper adhered to the center with Stampin' Seal to create the card front.

I stamped 3 flowers from SU Two Tone Flora Stamp Set by stamping off with the solid stamp and stamping over the solid stamp with the outline stamp.  I used Polished Pink, So Saffron and Gorgeous Grape ink.  (check out my Instagram page for a short video showing this.). I stamped the leaves with Granny Apple Green ink.

I die cut the flowers and leaves with Stampin' Up Two Tone Flora Die Set.

I adhered the flowers and leaves with a mixture of liquid adhesive and Stampin' Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Art Gallery Stamp Set on a strip of Basic White with Gorgeous Grape ink.  I punched the end off with Stampin' Up Happy Labels Pick A Punch.  I adhered the strip to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Polished Pink card base.

The inside is a panel of Basic White with a sentiment from Stampin' Up Framed Florets Stamp Set using Gorgeous Grape ink.  I adhered a strip of DSP to the bottom.

Thanks so much for hopping by!  Up next is, Carol.
