Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Thankful Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy stamp set from the upcoming 2019 Holiday 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:

I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with SNAIL.  I adhered a smaller panel from the Toile Tidings DSP (available Sept 4) to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel with SNAIL, then wrapped a strand of Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the layered panel to Thick Very Vanilla card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the basket, tree and flower images from the Beauty & Joy stamp set (available Sept 4) in Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Garden Green and Blushing Bride inks on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I cut around the image with a Stitched Nested Labels Die and then adhered the die cut to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Garden Green ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and cut around it with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and SNAIL.

I adhered a strip from the Toile Tidings DSP to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and then adhered the panel to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base to finish the inside of the card.

  1. These colors were a challenge for me, but not for you! I LOVE your card. What a perfect little bonsai and, of course, who does not love that DSP and the embossing folder…that’s why both are arriving next week!

  2. Well! I started my order last night, but had to go to a meeting and didn’t get it finished. Good thing, as I may have to go back and order this set. Very inspiring. And a very different card. Thanks for the ideas.

  3. What a great card Amy. Love the way you used the color challenge. i passed this set by, might have to rethink it after seeing this beauty.
