Stampin’ Up! Wrapped Bouquet Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a sketch challenge.  Using new products for the first time is so enjoyable.  Today I opened the Wrapped Bouquet stamp set and coordinating Wrapped Flowers Dies to make my card.  This set brought back so many memoires from my childhood.  Our neighbor had a gorgeous flower garden, she would wrap beautiful, colorful bunches of flowers in newspaper and share her bounty with all of us.

Here is the sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Wrapped Bouquet:

 

The recipe:

Card base: Poppy Parade 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Whisper White 4 x 5-1/4 embossed with the Tasteful Textile EF

Thin panel: Fine Art Floral 2-1/2 x 4-1/2

3-Die cut: Whisper White Stitched So Sweetly Die cut (3-1/4 x 2)

The details:

  • Stamp the floral image from the Wrapped Bouquet stamp set in Old Olive Ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock
  • Color in your flowers with your light and dark Stampin Blends as follows:
  • Daisies: Mango Melody
  • Poppies: Poppy Parade
  • Small flowers: Highland Heather
  • Die cut the flower bunch out with the Wrapped Flowers Dies
  • Die cut some extra leaves from the  Wrapped Flowers Dies in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock
  • Stamp the news print image from the Wrapped Bouquet stamp set in Tuxedo Memento Black ink onto Whisper White card stock
  • Die cut the news print image out using the die form Wrapped Flowers Die set
  • After you die cut the image out, stamp the other side of the die cut once again with the newsprint image from the Wrapped Bouquet stamp set
  • Sponge the edge of the news paper with a touch of soft Suede Ink
  • Fold your news paper and tuck your floral bunch down in the newsprint holder and adhere together with a glue dot
  • Tuck your extra leaves throughout the bouquet and adhere with glue dots

The sentiment:

  • Stamp the “For You” sentiment in Poppy Parade Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock using the sentiment from the Wrapped Bouquet stamp set
  • Die cut the sentiment out with the coordinating die from the Wrapped Flowers Die set

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere your embossed Whisper White panel to the front of the card with Stampin Seal
  • Adhere your Fine Art DSP panel to the right side of the Embossed panel
  • Glue all three of the Whisper White Stitched So Sweetly Dies together with liquid glue and adhere to the left side of the card front
  • Attach your art piece on top of the Whisper White Stitched So Sweetly stacked die cuts with Dimensionals

Finishing details:

  • Attach your sentiment to the bouquet with a glue dot
  • Adhere a double Linen Thread bow on the top of the sentiment
  • Add some Pearls here and there on the front of the card for added detail and you are done!
