Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop, where my friends and I share projects with you, made with Stampin’ Up! products.
Today we are working with a sketch.
Here is the card I created using the sketch as inspiration.
My card base is Misty Moonlight, the mat is Seaside Spray and the leaves are Silver Foil Sheets and Soft Seafoam. This is how I did it.
Cut and score the card base, then emboss a panel of Misty Moonlight in one of the Greenery embossing folders. You will have to do this twice as the folder is narrow and won’t fill the whole panel. Trim to fit the card base and use Liquid Glue to attach it to the base.
Cut a panel of Seaside Spray and stamp the little dots from the Waterfront stamp set randomly with Misty Moonlight. Some were stamped full strength and some stamped off once. This was then embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.
Use one of the leaf dies in the Love of Leaves Bundle to cut and emboss the Silver Foil Sheets. Cut a Silver branch with the die from Birds and More dies. Cut another from Soft Seafoam. Cut them apart when you do the dry fit so they lay the way you want them and Liquid Glue them to the panel. Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the larger Silver leaf to the front and over the branches.
Use the Embossing Buddy to go over a piece of Misty Moonlight, then stamp the sentiment from Someone Special in Versamark Ink. Sprinkle Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder over this and use the Heat Tool to melt the powder.
Cut to the size you want and cut a mat of Silver Foil just a little bigger. I prefer a smaller edge, so the mat is 1/8″ larger than the sentiment piece. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere to the card front.
Attach Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the card front, and adhere to the card base.
For the inside, I cut a mat in Silver Foil, then cut the center out of it leaving 1/2″ border. I really don’t like to waste the more expensive paper by covering it up. I again stamped the dots from Waterfront in Misty Moonlight on my Seaside Spray panel. Ink up the same leaf shape from the Love of Leaves Bundle that you used on the front. I used Misty Moonlight and stamped it off once.
Use the Embossing Buddy on the panel, then stamp the sentiment from Band Together in Versamark ink, sprinkle with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and use the Heat Tool to melt the powder. Liquid Glue the stamped panel atop the Silver Foil frame, then use Liquied Glue to adhere the completed inside panel to the card base.
For the envelope flap, I stamped the dots from Waterfront on a strip of Seaside Spray, then glued it to the flap and trimmed to fit. On the front, I stamped the leaf in Versamark, sprinkled on the Silver Emboss Powder and heated it to melt. Using a mask (mask made by cutting a leaf from a sticky note with the die) over the embossed leaf, I stamped another leaf in Misty Moonlight.
I thought the front looked a little plain, so I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front sentiment. This card is finished.

So Beautiful!! Love all the texture and the gorgeous leaves!!😊
Thank you so much Akiko! I love those leaves too.
So pretty Julie! Love the shades of blue with the silver foil, perfect! 🙂
Thanks much, Amy. Blue and silver are a natural, I think.
So pretty Julie 🙂 Love your colors. Those blues are perfect together and your silver foil leaf adds to the beauty.
Thanks, Karen. I like blue and silver almost as much as I like green and copper..
Splatters, we’ve got splatters, we’ve got lots and lots of splatters! Oh, how I miss Perry Como! Your card is delightfully delicious because I LOVE splatters!
Ha! I like splatters too, and I was always a Perry Como fan. Too bad the good ones are gone now. Thanks for your kind words.
Pretty – love how you used the different textures and materials! Blue and silver is one of my faves, too! Huh – Air Force. What are the odds that I’d be partial to those colors! 🙂
Thanks Mary. I think the only thing that tops Blues and Silver would be Green and COPPER! I love copper. Thanks for your kind words. I would sort of expect you to be partial to Blue and Silver. Thank you once again for your service.
I love the splatters—My first reaction was what DSP is that?! Blue and silver are a hit! Good job with a beautiful card!
Thank you so much Susan. Glad you like the splatters. I like them too. Sometimes, no matter how much DSP one has, you just have to make your own.
Thanks for the beautiful card!
I really like how you decorated the envelope front! Genius!
I am so glad you like my card. Very easy! And, thank you for your kind comments. Not really genius, but it does make a nice envelope!
