Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do stamp set to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I made for it.

Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock (available June 1) with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the front of a Night of Navy card base with SNAIL.

I adhered a panel from the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ DSP pack (available June 1) to a panel of Night of Navy card stock with SNAIL, then I wrapped a strand of Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine (available June 1) around the panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Love What You Do photopolymer stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock and then stamped the small flower image around it in Soft Sea Foam ink.  I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added three Pearl Basic Jewels to finish it.

I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Love What You Do stamp set in Night of Navy and Soft Sea Foam inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.
