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

Hi Stampers, Today for our blog hop we have a color challenge.  The colors are, Black, White and any other color we choose.  I pulled out the True Love DSP and created my share for today.  I added Petal Pink for a soft touch to the strong Black and White theme.

The color challenge:

Stampin’ Up! True Love Card:

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Front Panel: Whisper White 4-1/4 x 5-1/2

Offset panel: True Love DSP Cut offset  any dimension works  Mine is 2-3/4″ across the top and 4″ across the bottom

Offset panel mat: Basic Black

Sentiment: 1/2 x 6 (to be cut down to fit later)

The details:

  • Emboss the Whisper White panel with the Tasteful Textile EF
  • Adhere this panel to the front of the card
  • After you cut your offset DSP lay the corners 1/8″ inside the upper left corner of a piece of Basic Black card stock
  • Take this to your trimmer and trim the  other two side to match the edges of the top corner trim
  • Adhere your offset panel to the left top side of the card front with Dimensionals
  • Die cut 3 sets of the sentiment “just want to say” from the Floral Gallery Dies in Basic Black card stock
  • Glue 3 layers together to make the letter strong and have some dimension
  • Adhere the sentiment to the offset panel  on the front of the card

The sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment with Versamark ink using the saying from the Art Gallery stamp set
  • After you stamp with the Versamark go directly into your Petal Pink ink and stamp the sentiment and then onto your Whisper white sentiment piece
  • Sprinkle the sentiment with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with your Heat Tool
  • Lay your sentiment under the offset panel and trim to fit the offset panel

More details:

  • Stamp your daisy 2 time in Petal Pink Ink onto Whisper White card stock using the stamp from Daisy Lane
  • Punch both daisies out with the coordinating punch
  • Adhere the bottom daisy to the front of the offset panel
  • Layer the second daisy on top of the first one using a Dimensional
  • Stamp 3 leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink and Die cut the leaves out.  (I use the leaves from the Forever Blossom stamp set and coordinating dies)

Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Gift Card Holders

Hi  Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! Gift Card Holders:

Here is the recipe:

Gift card holder base: Misty Moonlight 7-3/4 x 5

DSP panels: Boho Indigo 4-3/4 x 2-1/2 and 4-3/4 x 1-1/2

Here are the details:

  • Score the gift card holder at 6 and 2-1/2 inches
  • Adhere the DSP panels and the front top flap and to the front of the holder
  • Before gluing the side of the holder, take a circle punch and punch a notch into the bottom flap, this will make getting the gift card out a bit easier
  • Using Tear and Tape adhere the bottom flap on the gift card holder together (this forms the pocket for the gift card)

Art piece:

 

  • Die cut a Whisper White Circle cut from the Stitched Shape Die (largest)
  • Stamp the sentiment on the circle with Versa Mark Ink using the saying from the  Forever Fern stamp set
  • Sprinkle with Gold Emboss Powder and heat set with your heat tool
  • Die cut a Coordinating  Misty Moonlight mat using the Layering Circle Dies
  • Adhere your sentiment to the Misty Moonlight scallop mat
  • Punch out the leaves from the Boho Indigo Product Medley Kit
  • Punch some Brass leaves with the leaf punch (retired) but any leaf shape will do, so use what you have on hand
  • Adhere your sentiment piece to the front of the gift card holder (only adhering the top so your gift card holder opens up)
  • Attach your Boho Indigo leaves and brass leaves to the right side of the sentiment piece

Finishing the card:

  • Add a Misty Moonlight  bow to the leaf cluster
  • Add a few Gilded Gems here and there for added sparkle

More options:

I made 3 other gift card holders.  The holders are all DSP, from the Boho Indigo Product Medley.  Use your imagination and supplies you have on hand to make more gift card holders or make one of the options I shared with your today.

Option 1: Sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set

 

Option 2: Sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set

 

Option 3: Sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set

Design inspiration:

Here are a few of the gift card holders from our Thursday Blog Hop that inspired todays “alternate” look
