Stampin’ Up! Needlepoint Nook for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we had a color challenge with Berry Burst, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.  I had some, never been used Needlepoint Nook DSP and thought that the colors were perfect for this challenge.  I do not have the coordinating stamp set that matches the paper so I had to put my thinking cap on and figure out what to do. I came up with this idea (with the help of Pinterest and Bonnie ONeill) and thought that the paper will do most of the work with just a touch of fussy cutting to complete the card.

Here is the color challenge:

Stampin’ Up! Needlepoint Nook:

Here is the recipe:

Card base: Old Olive

Mat: Whisper White

Diagonal panel: Berry Burst and Needlepoint Nook DSP 5-1/8 x 3-7/8

Sentiment piece: Whisper White Stitched Shapes (circle) and  an Old Olive Layering Scallop Circle Framelits

Here is the recipe:

the sentiment

  • Stamp the sentiment onto the Whisper White Stitched Circle Framelit
  • Mount it to the Old Olive Scallop Circle
  • Fussy cut some of the flowers from the Needlepoint Nook DSP and attach to the edge of the sentiment piece
  • Stamp the leaf image from the Rooted Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink then die cut them out to add foliage to the little flower bouquet
  • Add some Rhinestones to the sentiment piece

the card front

  • Take your two panels, one Needlepoint Nook and one Berry Burst and cut them in half diagonally
  • Run the Berry Burst panel through your Big Shot using the Country Floral EF
  • Attach the two diagonal panels to the Whisper White mat
  • Adhere a Berry Burst Ribbon diagonally over the seam of the two papers

More Details:

  • Attach your matted panel to the front of the card with dimensionals
  • Attach your matted sentiment piece to  the front of the card with dimensionals
  • Add a Berry Burst bow and your are finished

    Love them both! The embossing is perfect, great way to showcase that designer paper too. 🙂

  2. Karen Finkle says:

    I like the first one better because I’m more of a purple person than green. I love how you used the ribbon.I pinned your card to my “Cards I Want to Case” board!

  3. Carol Carriveap says:

    Very pretty cards!…I like the first one best, as I am a purple gal and love that EF that you used!

  4. Sue Prather says:

    Beautiful cards, Kristi. I like both cards, but if I had to pick, I’d pick the first one. Love the ribbon treatment.
