Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have another color challenge using the spring like color of Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green.   The FREE Thoughtful Blooms stamp set from Sale-A-Bration  came to mind and I decided to ink it up.  Along with using the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and I am also using the coordinating  Small Blooms Punch that I also earned for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

The color challenge:

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms:

The recipe:

Card base: Lovely Lipstick 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Art piece: Whisper White 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

Sentiment: Whisper White 3/4 x 2-1/2 punched at the end with the Banner Triple Punch

The details:

  • With a pencil draw a light circle using the inside line from the largest Stitched Shape Circle Die onto the Whisper White art piece
  • Stamp your leaves with Granny Apple Green around the circle with the leaf image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (some of the leaves are second and third generation stamping to get varied color
  • Stamp the tiny flower image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Bermuda Bay randomly around the wreath
  • Stamp your flower onto a piece of Whisper White car stock as follows:
  • 2 Bermuda Bay flowers: Stamp the out line flower stamp from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set onto Whisper White card stock
  • Fill the flower in with 2nd generation stamping in Bermuda Bay using the solid image from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set
  • Repeat this process for the Lovely Lipstick flower then punch the flowers out using the Small Bloom Punch
  • Die cut the leaves using Granny Apple Green card stock  and the die from the Happy Birthday Dies
  • Die cut the filler using Bermuda Bay card stock the die from the Happy Birthday Dies

  • Adhere your sentiment to the wreath front with glue dots
