Stampin’ Up! “Floral Essence” Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, I am having so much fun playing and inking up some brand new stamp sets.  This week was no exception as I inked up the Floral Essence Stamp Set for the first time.  I had a hard time deciding which flower to use, the stamped floral or the one with the punch.  Today the stamped floral won.  I did use the punch,  you will see that next Monday (just a tiny hint of what will be coming your way)  Today we had a sketch challenge and the Floral Essence worked perfectly.

The Sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence:

The Details:

  • Color in the flower with your Flirty Flamingo Stampin Blends and then fussy cut the flower out with your paper snips
  • Stamp your leaf image 4 times with Granny Apple Green Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Punch them out with the Leaf Punch
  • Using the edge detailed die from the Magnolia Lane Dies Set, cut the bottom of the Whisper White and Brights (checked pattern)Flirty Flamingo panels
  • Adhere these two panels together with snail and attach to the front of the card with dimensionals
