Stampin’ Up! Blow Out The Candles for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Blow Out The Candles 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 adhering a panel from the Festive Farmhouse DSP (available September 5) to a panel of Gray Granite card stock with SNAIL.  Then I punched a panel of Festive Farmhouse DSP with the Banner Triple Punch, trimmed the ends so that the banner went to the edges and then adhered it to the larger DSP panel with SNAIL.

I stamped the sentiment from the Blow Out The Candles photopolymer stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and then cut it out with a Layering Ovals Framelits Die.  I adhered the die cut oval with SNAIL to an oval cut from Gray Granite card stock with a Stitched Shapes Framelits Die.  I adhered the layered ovals to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled a strand of Linen Thread through a True Gentleman Button, tied a bow and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the layered panel to a Cherry Cobbler card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish it.

I inked part of the sentiment from the Blow Out the Candles stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped it on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I adhered a strip of Festive Farmhouse DSP across the bottom of the panel to finish the inside of the card.
