I used the Tropical Leaf stamp set bundle from Stampin’ Up!’s Online Exclusives to create my project for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I made for it.
Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:
I started by inking the Tropical Hideaway stamp in Gray Granite ink, stamping it on scrap paper and then stamping it on a panel of Basic White card stock. Quick Tip: Use the Stamparatus and an oversized panel of Basic White to make the large image stamping quick and easy. Then I cut the center of the stamped panel with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then adhered the outside “frame” to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with Stampin’ Seal.
I adhered the center die cut to a panel of Gray Granite card stock with Stampin’ Seal and then adhered the die cut panel back in place on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a small strip of Flowers & More DSP (host exclusive item) to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. Then I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Leaf stamp set (Online Exclusive item) in Parakeet Party ink on a panel of Basic White card stock three times and then stamped the leaf veins in Garden Green ink over the solid leaf. I punched the three leaves out with the Tropical Leaf Punch (Online Exclusive item) and then adhered two of the leaves with Mini Glue Dots to the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Leaf stamp set in Night Of Navy ink on a panel of Pool Party card stock and then cut around it with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the die cut sentiment with Stampin’ Seal to the card front and then adhered the final leaf over the sentiment with Mini Glue Dots. I added three dots from the Glossy Dots Assortment to finish the card front.
I stamped the smaller leaf image from the Tropical Leaf stamp set in Parakeet Party ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then aded the leaf veins in Garden Green ink to finish the inside of the card.
