I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Is The Day 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…I borrowed a little inspiration from the catalog for my card today. There are so many good samples in there!
Here are the colors that we’re using this week:
I started by stamping the flower images from the Lovely Is The Day photopolymer stamp set in Old Olive ink three times across a Whisper White card stock panel. I stamped the more solid leaf image from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Old Olive ink over the flowers on each image. I used Sponge Brayers to add Pool Party and Old Olive inks to the background of the stamped panel, then wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around it twice and tied a bow. I adhered the stamped panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the flower image from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Old Olive ink twice and Gray Granite ink five times on another panel of Whisper White card stock. I added the flower centers in Daffodil Delight ink over the Gray Granite flowers. I cut the five Gray Granite flower tops with one of the Lovely Leaves Dies and the two Old Olive stems with another Lovely Leaves Die. I adhered the die cut flowers with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut it out with one of the Stitched Nested Dies. I adhered the die cut sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front and then added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel. I cut two butterflies from Pool Party card stock with two of the Lovely Leaves Dies and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to finish the card front.
I stamped the flower image from the Lovely Is The Day stamp set in Gray Granite, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades Will Be Available Today, June 27 at 10:00 AM MT!!!!
Good news! Stampin’ Up! received a shipment of Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995), and they item will be available to order today, June 27, at 10:00 AM (MT).
Stampin’ Up! has decided to reduce the limit on blades from six to three. They anticipate blades to sell out quickly, but hope more customers will be able to order with the smaller limit.
Don’t forget: There are different error messages you will see if trying to add the blades to an order before they become available and after they have sold out.
- On the day of the launch, if you try to order the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades before they are available, you will see this error message: “You may not order 1 of item 126995 because of promotion restrictions.”
- When the blades have sold out, the message will return to the current message until the next launch: “This item has been discontinued and cannot be added to your order (126995).”
So be ready at 10:00 AM MT today to get your Trimmer Blades ordered!

Stampin’ Up! items used to create this project:
Just by seeing your card today, I know I have to add the sponge brayers to my order 🙂 It’s funny how the subtleness of your card and the boldness of Jaimie’s each are appealing to my eyes.
Thanks Karen! Have fun using those brayers! 🙂
Very pretty card, Amy. I especially like the colors and flowers.
