Stampin’ Up! Petal Park Gatefold Thank You Card with Belly Band for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Thursday and it is time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Are you ready to hop around and see some great projects?

I created my card for today using the Petal Park Bundle (stamps and punch), the Regency Park 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, the Around the Bend Stamp Set, and the Something Fancy Dies.

We have a sketch challenge for today’s Hop…and here it is.

I started off with a card base in Night of Navy measuring 11″ x 4-1/4″. The card base was scored at 2-3/4″ and 8-1/4″ on the long side.

Two patterned papers from the Regency Park 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper pack were chosen – one in a Petal Pink and Night of Navy stripe and the other a Night of Navy dotted pattern. The striped paper was cut to the finished card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and the dotted paper was cut to 5-1/2″ x 2-3/4″. The dotted paper was adhered to the striped paper and centered top to bottom. On the long side, the paper was cut in half at 2-3/4″, creating two separate panels. These panels were adhered to the right and left of the card front.

The inside panel was stamped with a sentiment from the Around the Bend Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink. I also used the large, detailed stamps for the leaves and flowers from the Petal Park Stamp Set. These images were stamped in Night of Navy ink in the lower left of the inside panel. I used Stampin’ Blends in Petal Pink, Balmy Blue and Sweet Sorbet to color in the flowers. The largest flower was colored in with Mango Melody ink using a Blender Pen. The panel was then adhered to the inside of the card.

A sentiment label was die cut using the smallest rectangle die from the Something Fancy Dies set in Petal Pink cardstock. A sentiment from the Around the Bend Stamp Set was stamped onto the label. A mat was cut using the medium-sized rectangular die from the Something Fancy Dies set in Balmy Blue and the sentiment label was adhered to this mat.

The Petal Park Builder Punch will punch out flowers and a leaf from the Regency Park Designer Series Paper. I punched out several flowers from this paper using the punch.

I used an 11″ x 1-1/4″ strip of Night of Navy cardstock for the belly band. To assist in folding the ends of the belly band around the card front, I scored the band on the long side once at 2-3/4″. The card was placed on top of the belly band, and I wrapped the ends of the band around each side of the card. Because the total width of the card is 11″ and the belly band is 11″ wide, this leaves a small gap. I used a small piece of Night of Navy cardstock to “bridge” the ends of the belly band together using liquid glue and made sure I could easily move the band across the card before allowing the glue to fully set. This small piece of cardstock, or bridge, will be hidden by the sentiment label.

Now on to decorating the belly band! I adhered the matted sentiment label to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals and positioned the label slightly right of center of the card. I then dry fit the punched flowers to the left of the sentiment label. Once I was happy with placement I glued the two small and one medium sized flower into place on the belly band. The largest Mango Melody flower was adhered to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I placed Night of Navy Adhesive-backed Milky Dots on the centers of the two small and one medium sized flower, and one dot was placed on the sentiment label. A Mango Melody Dot was placed in the center of the large flower. I used a short length of Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon and tied a knot. The ends of the ribbon were trimmed down and the knot was adhered to the top right of the sentiment label using a Mini Glue Dot.

I used the same large, detailed leaf and flower stamps and stamped these images partially onto the envelope front in Night of Navy ink and then colored in the leaves and flowers. A piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap, and I trimmed the excess paper away to finish off the envelope.

I hope you enjoyed reading how I created my card for today’s Hop! I love how this gatefold card turned out using the Petal Park images and the Regency Park Designer Series Paper and, well, belly bands are just plain fun!

Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora Valentine’s Day Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Thursday and you know what that means…it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Are you ready to hop around and see some great projects?

I created my card for today using the Two-Tone Flora Bundle, and the Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper.

We have a theme challenge for today’s Hop. The theme is “Love”! What says “Love” more than a Valentine’s Day card!

If you’re hopping over from Terry Lynn’s blog…thanks for stopping by!

I started off with a card base in Night of Navy. This is a top fold card. I used the large, intricate die from the Two-Tone Flora Dies set to cut a piece of the Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in an all-over Balmy Blue, Orchid Oasis, and Pool Party pattern. This panel was cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8 and the die was centered over the panel. I love the variegated look once this panel was die cut! The panel was then adhered to the front of the card base.

Using the leaf image from the Two-Tone Flora Stamp Set, I stamped the image twice onto a scrap piece of Orchid Oasis cardstock then used the coordinating dies from the Two-Tone Flora Dies set to cut the images out. On a scrap piece of white cardstock, I used the two-step stamps for the largest flower image and stamped the detailed image in Orchid Oasis ink and the filler image using Pool Party ink. I then used the coordinating die from the Two-Tone Flora Stamp Set to cut out this image.

Using additional pieces of white cardstock, I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out two circles – one using the 2nd to smallest circle die and one using the 2nd to largest circle die. The sentiment “With Love” was stamped onto the smallest circle. The die cut flower and leaf sprigs were arranged on the larger circle. Both circle units were arranged onto the card front. The flower image was placed on the lower left of the card and the sentiment to the upper right.

Using the Country Bouquet Stamp Set, I stamped the sentiment “Happy Valentine’s Day” onto the inside panel using Orchid Oasis ink. The two-step large flower was stamped onto the lower left corner of this panel – again, using Orchid Oasis and Pool Party inks. I then stamped just the background image for the flower onto a Post It Note, then fussy cut around the background image to create a mask. I then placed the mask onto the stamped flower on the panel and stamped the leaf image in Orchid Oasis ink on each side of the flower. The mask was removed, and I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Two short lengths of Pool Party Grosgrain Ribbon were tied together to form a knot. I then trimmed the ribbon ends laying on top shorter than those below and all ribbon ends were trimmed at an angle. The ribbon was adhered to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot and placed just below the flower. An Orchid Oasis Stampin’ Blend was used to color several Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the rhinestones were placed around the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Friendship Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy New Year! It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Are you ready to hop around and see some great projects?

I created my card for today using the Desert Details Stamp Set, Desert Details Dies and the gorgeous Dry Brushed Metallic 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper. And, this paper is truly gorgeous! As of today, these products are now available for customer orders from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog! Yay!

The theme for today’s hop is a sketch challenge!

I started off with a card base in Soft Succulent measuring 11″ x 4-1/4 and scored at 5-1/2″. Usually, this card cut is presented as a top fold easel card, but I chose to turn my card base to landscape for a different look. I used a panel of the Dry Brushed Metallic 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper and matted this panel to a piece of Pale Papaya cardstock. The specialty paper is in soft succulent, blue and copper and so, so pretty! The panel was then adhered to the card front.

Next, I stamped the large desert flower from the Desert Details Stamp Set in Soft Succulent onto a piece of white cardstock. I used Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends to shade all of the white areas on the flower, then used a Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter to smooth the color out. I then used Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends to deepen the shadows on the flower blossom. The stamped flower image was die cut using the coordinating die from the Desert Details Dies set and I also cut a grass from Soft Succulent cardstock.

The die cut grass was partially adhered to the back of the flower. A short length of Pale Papaya Faux Velvet Trim was also adhered to the back of the flower. The grass sits at the top of the flower and is angled to the right of the flower and the trim is angled slightly to the left. I adhered these pieces to the flower first to assist with dimensional placement. I placed Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flower unit, then adhered this unit to the card front, placing it towards the middle right.

I used a sentiment label in Soft Succulent and stamped a sentiment from the Desert Details Stamp Set in Soft Succulent ink. The sentiment label was then adhered to a mat in Pale Papaya then added to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment label sits slightly over the bottom of the flower and overhangs the metallic panel on the right.

On the inside panel I stamped the same large desert flower towards the bottom of the panel in Soft Succulent ink and used the same Stampin’ Blends to color the flower. The panel was then adhered to a Pale Papaya mat and this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

The same flower was stamped onto the envelope front and colored and a piece of coordinating Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap. I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap to finish off the envelope.

Several Calypso Coral Iridescent Pastel Gems were added to the card front to complete the card! I think the Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Designer Series Paper adds an extra “something” to the card.

Stampin’ Up! Share a Milkshake Front Flap Fun Fold for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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 challenge!

I used the Share a Milkshake Stamp Set and Dies and the Country Floral Lane 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to create my card for today’s Hop. These items are from the upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I had so much fun creating this card! (I am now craving a hot fudge sunday…)

Our challenge for today ‘s Hop is a theme challenge to create a fun fold card!

For this fun fold there are essentially two card bases. The first card base was cut from Mint Macaron cardstock and measures 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. The second card base acts as the center “flap” and measures 8-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ and is scored at 4-1/4″.

I selected two prints from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper pack – one in a Petal Pink flower and heart print and the second in a Sweet Sorbet stripe print. I cut two slender panels from the flower print paper to 4″ x 1-1/8″ and adhered these panels to mats in Basic White cardstock. These panels were adhered to the non-scored card base on the left and rights sides, leaving an equal reveal on three sides. The striped pattern DSP was cut to 4″ x 2-1/2″ and also adhered to a white mat, then adhered to the front of the scored card base. This scored card base was adhered to the first card base between the two slender panels.

Using Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the chocolate ice cream, strawberry ice cream, cherry and spoon and used the coordinating dies from the Share A Milkshake Dies set to cut out the images. I also cut out an ice cream cup in Mint Macaron cardstock and a scoop of vanilla ice cream from Very Vanilla cardstock. The ice cream sundae was assembled and adhered to the center panel of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A sentiment was stamped onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and I fussy cut the image. The sentiment label was then adhered to the center panel of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and positioned above the dish of ice cream.

Hearts were stamped on the inside panel in Sweet Sorbet ink and the panel was adhered to the inside of the card.

The same heart image was stamped on the envelope front and a piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap with the excess paper being trimmed away from the flap. Several Opaque Adhesive-backed Gems were adhered to the card front to finish off the card.

What’s your favorite ice cream? I’m a chocolate girl all the way!

Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight All Occasion Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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.

Stampin’ Up! Desert Details Thinking of You Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop – Sneak Peek!

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.

Stampin’ Up Christmas Lights Box Fun Fold Holiday Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It is already Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see what my team members have created for the Hop today! I know there is sure to be lots of inspiration.

I created my card for today using the Christmas Lights Stamp Set, Twinkling Lights Dies and the Snowflake 12″ x 12″ Specialty Vellum. Sentiments came from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set.

We have a theme challenge for today and that is “Let it snow!”. I love a pretty snowfall…as long as I don’t have to drive in it!

I’m calling this card a box fun fold. I was just playing around and came up with this fold, so the measurements are mine. The card consists of two bases – a card base and the box base which I cut from Orchid Oasis cardstock. The card base measures 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and has no score lines. The box base measures 5-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ and is scored at 3/8″, 1-3/8″, 4-3/8″ and 5-3/8″. The first and last score lines create the “tabs” which get adhered to the card base.

Before adhering the box base to the card base, I first adhered Snowflake Specialty Vellum panels to the three sections on the box base. I folded the tabs on each end of the box base under and applied a thin line of glue to each tab. The box base is then folded at the 1-3/8″ score line and I lined up this folded edge 1/4″ from the left side of the card base, then flattened the box base and adhered it to the card base.

Once the two bases were adhered together, I added vellum panels to the right and left sides of the card base. I die cut a large snowflake in Basic White cardstock from the Twinkling Lights Dies set. The snowflake was adhered to the center panel of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set was stamped in Orchid Oasis ink onto a 3″ x 1″ piece of white cardstock. I then used the Very Best Trio punch to make the short ends of the sentiment label fancy. Each end of the sentiment label was trimmed to just above the curved section and the label was adhered to an Orchid Oasis mat, then adhered to the center panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A double bow was tied using Orchid Oasis Metallic Woven Ribbon and adhered to the center panel between the die cut snowflake and the sentiment label.

Since this card does not open like a traditional card, a panel was added to the back of the card. I stamped an additional sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set onto a Basic White cardstock panel measuring 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″. The medium-sized snowflake from the Christmas Lights Stamp Set was stamped in Orchid Oasis ink around this sentiment and the panel was adhered to the back of the card.

The same snowflake stamp was used to stamp snowflakes onto the envelope front and envelope flap. A large Adhesive-backed Star was adhered to the center of the large die cut snowflake and I adhered a combination of small and large stars to either side of the center panel to complete the card.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today’s hop and I want to thank you for stopping by! This is a great fun fold to show off pretty designer series paper, die cuts and specialty papers! The best part is that the card folds flat – either to the left or right – to fit into a standard A2 envelope!

Stampin’ Up! Jingle Jingle Jingle Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I know we’re going to see a lot of wonderful creations on the Hop today, so I hope you’ll join in!

I created my card from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set and the fun Santa Express 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper.

We have a sketch challenge for today’s hop…

If you’re watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade today, you know that at the end of the parade the big guy in red…Santa Clause…makes his appearance to kick off the holiday season! My card today is a hat tip to Santa!

Following the sketch challenge my card today is simple in design and quick to put together. I started off with a card base in Granny Apple Green and used the small star from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set to stamp down the sides of the card base front using Granny Apple Green ink. After stamping the stars I used wink of stella to give them a little sparkle!

A Poppy Parade print with the words “Fa-La-La” from the Santa Express Designer Series Paper pack was adhered down the center of the card front.

I cut a sentiment label to approximately 3-1/2″ x 1-1/8″ from Basic White cardstock and used my Stamparatus to stamp the outline of the word “Believe” in Granny Apple Green ink. I then used the filler stamp, also in Granny Apple Green ink, to fill in the word.

A sentiment label mat was cut in Granny Apple Green and measures the same width as the DSP panel and sentiment label, but is cut a little wider. I stamped the same small star from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink across the top and bottom of this sentiment label mat and brushed the stars with Wink of Stella before adhering the sentiment label to it’s mat. The sentiment label was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and was placed on the lower third of the card front, lining up the edges of the sentiment label with the DSP panel previously adhered.

On a small scrap of white cardstock, I stamped the Santa hat from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then stamped the red fill for the hat in Poppy Parade ink. The Santa hat was fussy cut and adhered to the top left of the sentiment label using a combination of liquid glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional. The white areas of the hat were dusted with Wink of Stella. The hat was set at a jaunty angle of course!

I used Metallic Mesh Ribbon to tie a bow and adhered the bow towards the top center of the card front. Multiple silver Festive Pearls were added across the top and bottom of the sentiment label.

For the inside panel I stamped the words “in the magic” from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink, then used the “Merry Christmas” stamp from the Santa’s Delivery Stamp Set to stamp below the first sentiment in Poppy Parade ink. Several of the small stars from the Jingle Jingle Jingle Stamp Set were stamped around these sentiments using Granny Apple Green ink.

The same small star was stamped on the envelope front multiple times in Granny Apple Green ink and a piece of coordinating Santa Express Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap. I trimmed around the flap to finish off the envelope.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today and I hope you believe in the magic of the season, too!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see what my teammates have created this week! I used the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle and the Decorated Pines Dies to create my card for today.

We have a color challenge for the Hop today and I used Sweet Sorbet, Basic White, Pool Party and Garden Green as the colors for my card.

Using the largest die from the Candy Canes Dies set with the diagonal stripes, I die cut a panel in Garden Green and Sweet Sorbet. The Garden Green panel was adhered to a Basic White Thick cardstock base “right side” down. The Sweet Sorbet panel was adhered over top of the Garden Green panel and was adhered “right side” up to create a really cool looking crosshatch pattern on the card front.

Using the candy cane dies from the Candy Canes Dies set, I die cut two candy canes from the Sweetest Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. I chose the candy canes with Sweet Sorbet, Garden Green and Pool Party stripes. Crossing the candy canes and using a combination of liquid glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals the candy canes were adhered to the card front.

Several pine boughs were die cut in Garden Green and Pool Party cardstock using the Decorated Pine Dies. The pine boughs were slipped under either side of the candy canes and adhered to the card front.

A sentiment from the Sweet Candy Canes Stamp Set was stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut using the 2nd to smallest die from the Stylish Shapes Dies set. Another circle was die cut from the Garden Green dotted print from the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper and the sentiment label was adhered to this circle. The sentiment label was then adhered to the card front.

An additional sentiment was stamped onto a white panel in Sweet Sorbet ink. I also stamped a partial candy cane onto the bottom of the panel along with two greenery sprigs. The panel was adhered to a Garden Green mat then adhered to the inside of the card.

To finish off the card front I tied a double bow using Sweet Sorbet Metallic Woven Ribbon and adhered the bow above the sentiment label. One red Festive Pearl was also adhered to the top of the sentiment label.

The candy cane image and greenery were stamped onto the bottom left of the envelope front and a piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed around the flap to finish off the envelope.

Stampin’ Up! Ringed With Nature Anniversary Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Join me on the Hop today to see some creative inspiration from my team members!

For today’s Hop I used the Ringed With Nature Stamp Set, Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Tree Rings Dies along with some of the beautiful paper from the Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper Pack to create this anniversary card.

We have a sketch challenge for today’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop, so this is my interpretation of the sketch.

I started off by adhering a piece of the leaf print designer series paper to a mat in Evening Evergreen then adhered this to a Crumb Cake card base. A tree ring was die cut in Crumb Cake cardstock using the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder and Tree Rings Dies. A blending brush was used to blend Soft Suede ink around the edges of the embossed tree ring to give it a more realistic look.

The house, roof, and heart images from the Ringed With Nature Stamp Set were stamped onto white cardstock and fussy cut. The leaf and branch images were die cut using dies from the Tree Rings Dies set then colored with Stampin’ Blends. The die cut images were adhered to the tree ring using glue and the house was adhered to the tree ring using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The heart was adhered to the house just below the chimney. The tree ring was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of scrap white cardstock and die cut using one of the banner dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies set. The sentiment was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a double bow using Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine and adhered the bow to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the three-leaf image from the Ringed With Nature Stamp Set in Pear Pizzaz ink in the lower right and upper left corners of the inside panel. This panel was then adhered to an Evening Evergreen mat and the unit was adhered to the inside of the card. The same three-leaf image was stamped on the envelope front.

A coordinating piece of designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed around the flap to finish off the envelope. To finish off the card I adhered red Festive Pearls to the berries on the twig adorning the card front.

This completes my card for today. If you’d like to recreate this card, click on the image below for a pdf tutorial.
