Stampin’ Up! It Starts With Art for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! It Starts With Art stamp set bundle to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and here is what I created for it.

Here is the sketch that we’re using today.  I got a little creative with the sketch pieces.  🙂

I started by adhering a panel from the Follow Your Art DSP to a panel of Coastal Cabana card stock with SNAIL.  Then I cut a smaller panel of Coastal Cabana card stock with the Arts & Crafts Die and adhered it to the back of another panel of Follow Your Art DSP with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to the larger panel of Coastal Cabana card stock with SNAIL and then to a Claypso Coral card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut it out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I stamped the sequin image from the It Starts With Art stamp set in Crushed Curry ink next to the sentiment and then colored the images with my Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the die cut sentiment panel to the card front with SNAIL.

I stamped the images from the It Starts With Art stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I used Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack Markers as well as Light Bermuda Bay and Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the images.  I cut them out with the coordinating Arts & Crafts Dies and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals (for the ribbon spools) around the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the It Starts With Art stamp set in Calypso Coral ink and the sequins in Crushed Curry ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I colored the sequins with the Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Marker to finish the inside of the card.
