Stampin” Up! Happy Inkin” Thursday More “Beautiful You” Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Today we had a sketch challenge so I decided to use the “Beautiful You” stamp set again.  I must admit, when I first saw this set I passed it up.  Then I did a card for a friend and played with the set.  What can I say, I LOVE this set and all the possibilities to decorate the dresses.


Here is the sketch:

I seem to take some liberties with sketches but hey, they are there for us to have a starting off point.  So have fun and use the sketches to help you get started.

After all your mats are glued into place you are ready to create your stamped image

  • Stamp your image in black ink onto the DSP on the left hand side of the card
  • Re-ink your image again on a piece of Blushing Bride card stock
  • With your Blushing Bride marker make some shadow lines in her dress and umbrella for depth
  • For added sparkle stroke some Wink of Stella on top of the shadow lines
  • Fussy cut the dress and umbrella out and glue on top of the stamped image
