Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty 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:

My card design was inspired by As You See It Challenge #207.

I started by adhering a panel from the Come Sail Away DSP pack to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a strand of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine around the card front three times and then tied a small knot.

I stamped the deer image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set (available Sept 4) in Soft Suede ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I inked the image of the shrubs from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it next to the deer image twice.  I colored the deer and ground with Light and Dark Soft Suede and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack Markers and then traced around it with a Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I used the Color Lifter Marker to remove some of the color from the Smoky Slate outline and deer image and then cut the image out with a Stitched Nested Labels Die.  I adhered the die cut to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I cut around it with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added three Night of Navy rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (available Sept 4) to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then adhered a strip of Come Sail Away DSP to finish the inside of the card.
