Stampin’ Up! True Love DSP Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  The sketch was the perfect design to use the flowers from  True Love DSP.  I colored in the flowers  using the new Blending Brushes, did some fussy cutting and voila, the card  was done.

The sketch:

Stampin’ Up! True Love DSP Card:

 

The recipe:

Card base: Basic Black 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Back Panel: Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4, embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder

DSP panel: True Love 5-1/4 x 2-1/8

The details:

  • Color in a cluster of Daisies from the True Love DSP using Calypso Coral Ink and your Blending Brush, keeping the color darker in the center and lighter on the edges
  • With your Blending Brush and Daffodil Delight Ink color the tips of some of the petals
  • Color in the leaves with Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends
  • Fussy cut your flower cluster out with our paper snips

The sentiment:

  • My sentiment came for the Many Messages stamp set
  • Ink up your sentiment with versamark ink into Black card stock
  • Sprinkle White Embossing Powder over the sentiment and then heat emboss with your heat tool
  • Die cut the sentiment out with the coordinating Message Die

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere your DSP panel to the embossed Whisper White panel
  • Wrap a piece of Calypso Coral ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack around the card where the two papers meet at the seam
  • Attach this panel to the front of the card with Stampin Seal
  • Attach your flower cluster to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Attach your sentiment to the front of the card with Dimensionals

More details:

  • Add a Calypso Coral bow to the left of the sentiment
  • Add some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the front of the card and you are finished
