It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see what my team members have created for today’s Hop.
I used the Dainty Delight Stamp Set, Dainty Delight Dies from the upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog along with the Dainty Flowers 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper from the upcoming Sale-a-bration catalog to create my card.
We have a color challenge for today’s Hop. I chose Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green as my colors.
I started off with a card base in Mossy Meadow. The card base was cut to 7-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″. This makes the card front 3-1/4″. This is a fun design that allows some designer series paper to show through from the inside of the card!
A panel of the Dainty Flowers 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in a soft Blushing Bride print was added to a white mat, then adhered to the card front. The DSP panel measures 5-1/4″ x 3″ and the white mat measures 5-3/8″ x 3-1/8″.
I then used the Framed Florets Dies to die cut an oval frame and insert from white cardstock. For the insert, I used a blending brush to blend Granny Apple Green ink over the entire insert, concentrating the ink more towards the outer edges of the oval. I then used one of the flower stamps from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set and stamped this image twice on the ink blended oval. The stamp I chose reminds me of the flower called Queen Anne’s Lace. Queen Anne’s Lace is commonly found along the roadside in my area of the US.
The white oval frame was adhered to the card front and centered from top to bottom and left to right. I then adhered the ink blended insert oval inside of the frame.
Using the Dainty Delight Dies I die cut a large half-oval flower sprig from Mossy Meadow cardstock and three daisies from Blushing Bride cardstock. The daisy centers were cut from Calypso Coral cardstock. I also cut four small leaves in Granny Apple Green. I first adhered the large half-oval sprig to the card front on the left side of the oval frame. The daisy centers were adhered to their flowers and the daisies were then adhered around the right side of the oval frame. The small leaves in Granny Apple Green were tucked under the daisies.
A strip of the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper in a Mossy Meadow print was added to the white inside panel and this unit was adhered to the inside of the card. The DSP strip measures 5-1/4″ x 1-1/8″ and the inside panel measures 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″. This card was designed so that the outside and inside DSP panels and mats match up to each other. There are no sentiments on this card as this an All-Occasion card.
Using the same blending brush, I blended Granny Apple Green onto the lower right corner of the envelope front and stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace flower over the ink blended area. The flower was also stamped in Granny Apple Green ink. A coordinating piece of designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed the excess paper away from the envelope flap.
To the card front I added a bow tied from Glittered Organdy Ribbon and several pink Pastel Adhesive-backed Sequins.
There is something about a soft pink and greens that just go together…don’t you think? I hope you enjoyed my card for the Hop! Thanks so much for stopping by! To download, save and print the pdf tutorial for this card, click on the image below.
