Stampin' Up Country Floral Friendly Gnomes Spring is Everywhere Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another week with The Happy Inkin' Thursday Krew.  This week we are celebrating spring!  This is my second favorite time of the year... I love all the new blooms and love when everything is green... my allergies are not real big fans but I can live with that.  

I decided to make a really simple card this week that basically showcases Stampin' Up Country Floral.  This paper is gorgeous and has so much potential.  

I started with a panel of Sweet Sorbet card stock.  I adhered a thin strip of striped patterned paper from Stampin' Up Country Floral DSP to the side.  I then adhered a panel of bicycle patterned paper from the same set.  

 I wrapped a piece of Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Up 2022-24 In Color Baker's Twine around my fingers several times and adhered it to the card front using a strip of Stampin' Seal.

I stamped a sentiment from Stampin' Up Friendly Gnomes Stamp Set using Night of Navy ink on a piece of Balmy Blue card stock.  I die cut the sentiment with a Stampin' Up Stylish Shapes Dies.  I adhered the die cut to the card front over the twine with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I finished the front off with Stampin' Up Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Thanks so much for hopping by!  Up next is Terry Lynn.
