Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop[

Hi Stampers,  today we have a sketch challenge for our blog hop.  The Special Someone stamp set came to mind when I saw the sketch and because I just purchased the new coordinating dies I just have to use them both.

The sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone:

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Country Club DSP 5-1/4 x 4

Rectangle mat: Night of Navy die cut with the Rectangle Stitched Dies

Art piece: Whisper White  4-1/8 x 2-3/4

Sentiment: Whisper White card stock 5/8 x 1-3/4

The details:

  • Stamp the animals from the Special Someone stamp set onto Whisper White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink as follows:
  • Squirrel:  Black outline and Crumb Cake Ink that had been stamped off once
  • Raccoon: Black outline and Soft Suede Ink stamped off once
  • Mouse: Black outline and Smokey slate Ink
  • Flowers: Black outline and Night of Navy and Garden Green inks
  • Balloons: Black outline and Garden Green, Night of Navy and one stamped off Night of Navy
  • When you are done stamping all of the images, die cut them out using the dies

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere your DSP panel to the card front
  • Adhere your Whisper White panel to the Night of Navy Stitched Rectangle
  • Adhere this to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Attach the raccoon with glue dots to the art piece
  • Attach the squirrel and mouse with Dimensionals on each side of the racoon
  • Adhere your sentiment to the right side of the art piece
  • Adhere your balloon
  • Draw balloon lines with your Black Stampin Write Marker
  • Snip off the stems from the flower and attach to the card front and the animals with glue dots

Finishing touches:

  • Add a tiny Rhinestones to the center of each flower
  • Add a Whisper White Bakers Twine bow to the balloon cluster and you are done
