Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I used the Sending Smiles stamp set a few weeks ago and was having so much fun playing with this set, I just had to use it again.  There are three different colors to see because well, I just could not help myself, these flowers are beautiful in any color!!!

The Sketch:

Stampin” Up! Sending Smiles:

The Recipe:

Card base: Basic White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Front panel: Perfectly Penciled 4-1/4 x 5-1/2

Mat: Real Red: 3-1/16 x 4-7/16

Art piece: Basic White die cut with the Deckled Dies

The Details:

  • Stamp the flowers from the Sending Smiled stamp set with Real Red ink onto Basic White card stock
  • Stamp the flower centers in Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Die cut the flowers out with the Sending Dies
  • Stamp the leaves onto the white art piece using the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Old Olive ink (do one of the stems in 2nd generation stamping to give for depth to the leaves)

The Sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment onto Basic White card stock using the verse from the Ringed with Nature stamp set with Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Die cut the sentiment out using the Deckled Dies

Putting The Card Together:

  • Adhere the Perfectly Penciled DSP panel to the front of the card
  • Adhere the Art piece to the Real Red mat and wrap some Linen Thread around the art piece
  • Attach this panel to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Adhere the flowers to the stems, 2 with Liquid Glue and 2 with Dimensionals
  • Adhere the sentiment to the front of the care with Dimensionals

Finishing Touches:

  • Add a double Linen Thread bow to the left of the sentiment
  • Add some Matt Black dots to the art piece there and there and you are done

Here Are More Colors:

I also embossed the art piece with the Timbers EF, I really like the extra dimension this gives
