Stampin’ Up! Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts for Stamp Ink Paper & New Sale-a-bration Items Available March 15!

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set to create my card for the Stamp Ink Paper sketch challenge this week.

Here is the sketch for Stamp Ink Paper #141. Hope that you’ll stop by and play along with the challenge too!

I started by stamping the line and flower images from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede ink down a panel from the Wood Textures DSP Stack. I colored the stamped flower images on the DSP with the Light Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends Marker and then stamped the sentiment from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on the lower right corner of the panel.  I adhered the stamped panel to the front of a Sahara Sand card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the cart image from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then colored the images with the Light and Dark Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I used the Light Smoky Slate and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends to color the shadow area under the cart.

I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Pink Pirouette card stock with SNAIL and then to a Basic Black card stock panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the layered panel to the card front with SNAIL and added a Pink Pirouette enamel dot from the Subtles Enamel Shapes pack next to the sentiment to finish it.

I stamped the line image from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a Whisper White card stock panel, then colored the flowers with my Light Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends Marker to finish the inside of the card.

You can see a list of supplies used to create the project, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this blog post.

  1. This was one of the stamp sets on my list for the freebie from you. I’m happy with the Bella & Friends set since I have 2 poodles and needed a doggie stamp set, but now I’m putting this set on my wish list. I love the stamped flowers on the dp….they work so well with the flowers in your cart. What a cute card!

    • Thanks Roberta! I love this stamp set…it’s a definite must have, great sentiments and great images! 🙂
