I used the Count Your Blessings stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today. We’ve got a color challenge this week and this is what I created for it.
Here are the colors that we’re using this week:
I started by stamping the branch image from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Garden Green ink across a Garden Green card stock panel. I adhered the panel to a panel of Early Espresso card stock with SNAIL. Then I added a wide strip of the Painted Autumn DSP on the other side of the Early Espresso panel using SNAIL to adhere it.
I wrapped a strand of Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine around the panel twice and tied a bow, then adhered the layered panel to an Early Espresso card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I inked the flower image from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Early Espresso ink, stamped it on scrap paper twice and then stamped it on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.
I used a Blender Pen and a little Crushed Curry and Garden Green ink to lightly color the flowers. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Early Espresso ink over it. I cut the image out with a Layering Circles Framelits Die and adhered it with SNAIL to a circle cut from Early Espresso card stock with the next larger circle die. I adhered the circles to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added a Crushed Curry enamel dot from the Glitter Enamel Dots pack to finish it.
I stamped the branch image from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Garden Green ink across a Very Vanilla card stock panel inside the card.
