Stampin' Up! Color and Contour 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!! Either way, you're in for a treat!!! Here's my card...

and here's the sketch...
I'm featuring two new stamp sets today: Color & Contour and Beauty of Friendship. Both come with coordinating dies. If you purchase them as a bundle, you'll save 10%!

My card base is one of the new 2021-2023 In Colors, Evening Evergreen. I cut a piece of Soft Succulent cardstock (also a new In Color). I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock with one of the dies from the new Scalloped Contours Dies. I placed the white piece on the Soft Succulent where I wanted to permanently adhere it. Then I stamped the flower image from the Color & Contour Stamp Set in Basic Gray. 

I ran the Soft Succulent mat through my embossing machine with one of the Meadow Moments EF's,  then colored the flower with Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends and the leaves/stem outlines with Dark Evergreen Stampin' Blends. I adhered the art panel to the embossed mat with liquid glue.

Next I stamped the sentiment from Beauty of Friendship in Flirty Flamingo on a scrap of Basic White cardstock. I cut it out with a die from Ornate Frames. I adhered it to another Ornate Frames die cut. Then I adhered the Evening Evergreen piece and sentiment to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I added Pearl Basic Jewels to three of the embossed flower centers to finish it.

I'm entering my card at Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #405 - Use Die Cuts and/or Stencils, Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge 2119, and Fusion Card Challenge - Thank You using the photo only.
