Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Sunshine for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set bundle 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 created for it.

Here is the sketch that we’re playing along with:

I started by stamping the pocket images from the Pocketful of Sunshine photopolymer stamp set on a panel of Dapper Denim card stock in VersaMark ink.  I sprinkled the pocket with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it, then cut the image out with the matching Pocket Framelits Dies.  I folded the flaps around the pocket edges back and adhered them to the back of the pocket with Fast Fuse Adhesive, then added a little more Fast Fuse adhesive to the back of the pocket and I adhered it to a panel of So Saffron card stock.

I cut the sun from Crushed Curry card stock with the Pocket Framelits die and adhered it with SNAIL above the pocket on the So Saffron card stock panel.  I stamped the sun rays with image from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set in Crushed Curry ink around the sun die cut.  Then I stamped the sunglasses in Basic Black Archival ink on a panel of Pool Party card stock, cut them out with the Pocket Framelits die and then adhered them to the panel with Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set in Dapper Denim ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the panel.  I stamped the “for you” sentiment in Crushed Curry ink under the banner, then adhered the panel to a panel of Dapper Denim card stock with SNAIL and then to a Dapper Denim card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Crushed Curry enamel heart from the Regals Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the Pocketful of Sunshine images in Pool Party and Crushed Curry inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
