Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs and Gleaming Ornaments for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the great projects they are sharing with you.  My card features the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set, the Beautiful Boughs Dies, plus the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack and Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using:

The collection of plaid designs with Gold Foil accents in the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper is fantastic.  There are twelve double sided designs in this 6″x6″ pack – that’s 24 different designs.  So many possibilities!  Did you notice that all the plaids used on this card front are different, yet they coordinate perfectly with each other?

Cut a panel of the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP with the second to largest die in the Stitched Rectangles die set and adhere it to a mat of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Then adhere the completed layer to the front of a Shaded Spruce card stock base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for both.

Cut a panel of Whisper White card stock with the fourth to largest die in the Stitched Rectangles die set.  Use Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder to add the sentiment in the lower right corner before adhering to a mat of Shaded Spruce card stock with Liquid Glue.  Cut two single boughs from Shaded Spruce card stock using the Beautiful Bough Dies.  Adhere them across the top of the panel as shown using dabs of Liquid Glue.

Use the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack to cut the two ornaments.  The caps for the ornaments are punched from Gold Foil and trimmed to size using Paper Snips.  Adhere the caps to the ornaments before adhering the ornaments to the art piece with Liquid Glue.  Embellish with some Gold Metallic Pearls and a simple knot tied with Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon.  The completed art piece is adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside panel, stamp a single bough from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set with Shaded Spruce ink in the upper left corner of a panel of Whisper White card stock that is cut with the second to largest Stitched Rectangle die.  Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Boughs with Cherry Cobbler ink before adhering the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat.  Then adhere the completed layer to the inside of the card, using Liquid Glue for both.  Another card ready for mailing!  Yes!
