Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set 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 this week:

I started by cutting two panels of the Lily Impressions DSP (Sale-a-bration item) with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered  the die cut panels to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base with SNAIL.  Then I cut a panel of Coastal Cabana card stock with one of the Lily Pad Dies (Sale-a-bration item), snipped off one end and then adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front.

I stamped the leaf and flower images from the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (Sale-a-bration item) in Garden Green and Flirty Flamingo inks on panels of Granny Apple Green and Grapefruit Grove card stock.  I cut the images out with the coordinating Lily Pad Dies and then cut a panel of Flirty Flamingo card stock with another one of the Lily Pad Dies.  I adhered the Flirty Flamingo die cut with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the larger die cut and then adhered the die cut images to the card front with Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the I Say Hello stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  I adhered the die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.  I tied a bow from Bermuda Bay twine from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack (Sale-a-bration item) and used a rolled up Glue Dot to adhere it to the card front to finish it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set (Sale-a-bration item) in Bermuda Bay ink and then added the flower and leaf images from the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set in Grapefruit Grove (stamped off once), Granny Apple Green (stamped off once), Flirty Flamingo and Garden Green inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

  1. I had thought that DSP was dark when I saw it but it sure pops with color on your card. Love your take in the sketch!
