I used the Stampin’ Up! Needle & Thread stamp set bundle 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 #311.
I started by embossing the front of a Balmy Blue card base with one of the dies from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies. Then I adhered a panel of Needlepoint Nook DSP to a panel of Night of Navy card stock and then to the card front with SNAIL. I stamped the sentiment from the Needle & Thread stamp set in Night of Navy ink under the DSP panel on the card front.
I cut a panel of Night of Navy card stock with one of the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies and then adhered the die cuts with Glue Dots to the card front. I stamped the leaf image from the Needle & Thread stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut it out with the coordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies. I adhered the die cut with Glue Dots to the card front.
I inked the flower image from the Needle & Thread stamp set in Balmy Blue ink and then used a Sponge Dauber with Night of Navy ink to add a little more color to the edges and center of the stamp. I stamped the flower on Whisper White card stock, cut it out with the coordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Die and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front. I added a Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot next to the sentiment to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment and butterflies from the Needle & Thread stamp set in Night of Navy and Balmy Blue inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

Love your card, Amy. The die cut piercing on the card base is such a special touch – one I would not have though of – that adds so much.
