Stampin' Up! Lovely You Friendship Card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a color challenge. I can't wait to see what the other team members created. Hop along with us at the bottom of my post.

I used the Lovely You Stamp Set and the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to create my card for today. I chose So Saffron for the color of my choice.

The inspiration for my card came from the Bundle Focus at Stampin' Up! It's a new program for demonstrators to share with their customers. More about that later!

Here are the deets for my card:

  • Pool Party card base: 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
  • Pool Party mat 3 1/4" x 4 1/2". Stamp images in Just Jade ink
  • Layer mat on card front with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • So Saffron Strip 3 1/4" x 1/2" - stamp leaf image in So Saffron ink and punch left end
  • Pacific Point Strip 3 1/2" x 1" - stamp floral image in Pacific Point ink and punch left end
  • Very Vanilla Strip 3" x 3/4" - stamp sentiment in Just Jade ink and punch left end
  • Adhere So Saffron and Pacific Point strips to card front
  • Adhere sentiment with Dimensionals
  • Cut off any overhanging strips using Paper Snips or scissors
  • Add three 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots (Just Jade)
Note: I cut my strips a smidge less that the height measurements so they fit in the punch better.

So, more about this includes the Lovely You Stamp Set and the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. When purchased together with the special bundle item number, the 18-piece cling stamp set and six-punch tool are available at a 10% discount! My favorite element of the Lovely You Bundle is the six-punch tool. With it, you can punch two designs in three different widths (with cardstock of any length). This exclusive tool allows for efficient crafting, easy coordination, and endless creative possibilities!

I hope you enjoyed my card today and thank you for joining the hop. Clicking on the "next" button will take you to Akiko Sudano. Clicking on the names below will take you directly to the other team members and their projects.
