Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I  used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely stamp set from the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog and the Hello Cupcake stamp set from the 2019 Sale-a-bration Catalog to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a color challenge this week and here is what I created for it.

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #302.

I started by embossing two panels of Gray Granite card stock with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  I adhered the two embossed panels to larger panels of Gray Granite card stock and then to a Gray Granite card base with SNAIL.

I stamped the images from the Forever Lovely photopolymer stamp set (available Jan 3) in Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock with SNAIL.  I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel twice and tied a bow, then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Cupcake photopolymer stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 3) in Gray Granite ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I adhered the sentiment die cut to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a Glitter Enamel Dot with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Marker and then adhered it to the sentiment die cut to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday photopolymer stamp set in Gray Granite ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then added the flower images from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite inks to finish the inside of the card.
