Stampin’ Up! Irresistible Blooms Thank You Card in Black, White and Crumb Cake for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and I’m excited to see what my team members have created for the Hop this week!

I used the Irresistible Blooms Bundle and the Loveliest Layers Decorative Masks to create my card for the Hop today! My card is a CASE from Gail Ellis with Blue Rose Paper Treasures. I changed up a few things on my version of the card. I love this color scheme!

We have a “Sketch” challenge this week!

I began with a Basic White cardstock panel measuring 5″ x 3-3/4″. I used one of the masks from the Loveliest Layers Decorative Masks and lined the mask up on the white panel then used Post It Tape to hold the panel and the mask down to my work surface. Using a blending brush, I lightly blended Crumb Cake ink over the mask and panel to create the background. This panel was then adhered to a Basic Black mat.

A strip of black cardstock was cut to 5-1/8″ x 5/8″ and adhered to the white panel and I centered this strip from top to bottom and left to right. A length of burlap ribbon from the Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo Pack was adhered across the black strip and the ends of the ribbon were adhered to the back of the panel using Tear & Tape. The panel was then adhered to the front of a Crumb Cake card base.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the large and small flower image from the Irresistible Blooms Stamp Set onto Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Using the same blending brush, I blended Crumb Cake over the stamped flowers then used the coordinating dies from the Irresistible Blooms Dies set to cut out the images. From the same die set I also die cut the three open leaves from Basic Black cardstock.

Again, using the Stamparatus, I stamped the “Thank you” sentiment onto the sentiment label in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The sentiment label was matted to a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

The sentiment label was adhered to the card front slightly right of center using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flowers and leaves were dry fit onto the card front then adhered using a combination of glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside panel, I stamped the large flower image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and blended Crumb Cake ink over the flower image. The small leaf set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink next to the flower. The inside panel was adhered to a Basic Black mat, then this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

The large flower and small leaf set was again stamped onto the envelope front using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and Crumb Cake ink was blended over the flower image. The small leaf set was stamped onto the envelope flap using Memento ink. Matte Black Dots were added to the flower centers on the front of the card as well as a single dot to the left of the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today and thank you for stopping by! Black and white are always a classic look, but adding Crumb Cake to this card gives it a certain flare, I think!
