Stampin' Up! Treasured Medallion Thank You for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a sketch challenge. If this is your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back!!

I used the Treasured Medallion Stamp Set and coordinating Treasured Tags Punch to create my card for you today. I took a little liberty in the actual layout but not too much!

Here is our sketch...

My card base is Basic White with a mat of Basic White. (Measurements are listed below.) I stamped the medallion in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with these Light & Dark Stampin' Blends: Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather. I ran it through my embossing machine with the Tasteful Textiles 3D EF.

Next, I stamped the sentiments on scrap Basic White. I used Stampin' Write Markers to color the letters rather than using ink. I used the same colors as above. I punched out the sentiments with the Treasured Tags Pick a Punch and embossed them as well. I adhered the bottom one with liquid glue and the top one with Stampin' Dimensionals.

To create the butterflies, I used the baby wipe technique. Using Granny Apple Green, Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather ink refills, I dropped the ink onto a baby wipe to create a multi-colored "ink pad". I used the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set for my butterflies. I punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch. The stamps and punch are retiring 5/3/21. I will miss them! I adhered the butterflies with glue dots.

Then I colored 7 Pearl Basic Jewels with my alcohol markers listed above (Blends) and adhered them to the card front.

For the inside, I sponged six of the colors on a piece of Basic White. I stamped the medallion in Crushed Curry.

On scrap Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from Treasured Medallion in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out with a die from Layering Circles Dies. I sponged it with Daffodil Delight ink. and adhered it to the center of the medallion. I had hoped to achieve an image of the sun in a rainbow.

So, you can see a rainbow/butterfly theme here, yes? Well, that's good because I'm entering my card in these challenges:
