Stampin’ Up! First Frost for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I  used the Stampin’ Up! First Frost and Part of My Story stamp sets 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:

I started by adhering a narrow strip Crushed Curry DSP from the Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack to the front of a Berry Burst card base with SNAIL.  Then I embossed a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Subtle Embossing Folder and I adhered that panel to the card front with SNAIL.

I cut a doily with one of the Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies and I adhered it with SNAIL to the card front.  I cut a small piece of Berry Burst card stock with the edge die from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies and then punched around it with the Classic Label Punch.  I adhered the punch to the card front with Glue Dots.  I stamped the sentiment from the Part of My Story stamp set (Sale-a-bration item) in Berry Burst ink and then cut around it with one of the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.  I adhered the die cut sentiment with Glue Dots to the card front.

I cut a panel of Whisper White card stock with the leaf and branch dies from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies and then sponged them with Old Olive and Crushed Curry inks. Then I stamped the flower images from the First Frost stamp set in Berry Burst ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and cut them out with the coordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.   I adhered the die cut pieces to the card front with Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added three Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets around the images to finish the card front.

I stamped the flower images from the First Frost stamp set in Berry Burst ink randomly over the Whisper White card stock panel on the inside of the card.
