It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and lots of great inspiration!
I used the Desert Details Stamp Set, Desert Details Dies, and the beautiful Delicate Desert 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to create my card for today’s hop. These items will be available in the upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.
We have a sketch challenge for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.
I started off with a card base in Gray Granite and added a mat in Calypso Coral cardstock measuring 5-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. A DSP panel cut from the Delicate Desert Designer Series Paper measuring 5-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ was added on top of the Calypso Coral mat, leaving a 1/8″ reveal across the top and bottom of the panel. This unit was then adhered to the card front.
A sentiment from the Desert Details Stamp Set was stamped onto a white sentiment label measuring 4-1/2″ x 3/4″ in Calypso Coral ink. The small and large flower image were stamped onto white cardstock – also in Calypso Coral ink – and cut using the coordinating dies from the Desert Details Dies set.
The decorative strip die was cut from Calypso Coral cardstock and adhered across the card front approximately 1″ from the bottom of the card base. The sentiment label was added using Stampin’ Dimensionals and was placed over the decorative strip. The die cut flowers were also adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the bottoms of the flowers were slightly overlapped and tucked under the sentiment label.
I used Gold Faceted Adhesive-Backed Sequins (also coming in the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog) and adhered two of the crescent moon shaped sequins to the flower centers and several of the small round sequins to the card front. A small round sequin was also added to the sentiment label.
On the inside panel a strip of coordinating designer series paper was added across the bottom of the panel, and I stamped an additional sentiment from the Desert Details Stamp Set onto the panel. The panel was added to a mat in Calypso Coral then adhered to the inside of the card.
The large flower from the Desert Details Stamp Set was stamped onto the lower left corner of the envelope front in Calypso Coral ink. A piece of coordinating designer series paper was added to the envelope flap and I trimmed around the flap to finish off the envelope.
The Desert Details Bundle and Delicate Desert 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper would be beautiful additions to your crafting stash.
