It’s Thursday and that means it is time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’m looking forward to seeing the projects that my team members have created for the Hop this week! If you are hopping over from Terry Lynn’s blog…welcome!
I used the beautiful Cheerful Daisies Bundle and the Fresh as a Daisy 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper! I can’t seem to stay away from this Suite of products! I also used some returning and new colors that will be released on May 2 with the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.
We have a sketch challenge for the Hop today…
I started off with a standard card base in Pretty Peacock cardstock and added a Whild Wheat cardstock mat to the card front. On top of the Wild Wheat mat, I added a strip of Lemon Lolly cardstock that I embossed with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. Two panels were cut from the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper measuring 4-1/4″ x 3″ – one panel with a daisy print and one with a Pretty Peacock leaf print. The Pretty Peacock designer series paper panel was adhered over the Lemon Lolly embossed strip and centered from top to bottom and left to right. The second daisy print designer series paper panel was adhered on top at an angle.
I stamped several of the daisy images in Lemon Lolly ink onto Lemon Lolly cardstock. The flower centers were stamped onto Lemon Lolly cardstock using Crushed Curry ink. The coordinating dies were used to cut out the images. I also cut three leaf sprigs from the Pretty Peacock print designer series paper.
Using a blender pen I brushed Crushed Curry ink over the flower petals in spots to enhance the petals and give them a little depth. A Copper Clay Stampin’ Blend was used to darken the bottoms of the flower centers and I used the light shade of a Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blend to blend out the Copper Clay color. The daisies were adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaf sprigs along with a piece of Copper Clay Textured Ribbon were tucked in around the daisies.
On the inside panel a daisy was stamped in Lemon Lolly ink and the daisy center was stamped in Crushed Curry ink. The panel was adhered to a Wild Wheat mat and then this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.
The half daisy was stamped onto the envelope front and a piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap to finish off the card.
