In todays Blog Hop we are featuring the Hand Penned Suite.
Here are my instructions for making this card.
Card Stock: Night of Navy and Basic White
Stamp Sets: Hand Penned Petals and Pansy Patch
Stampin' Blends: Night of Navy Light, Pale Papaya Light, Mint Macaron Light and Highland Heather Light
Pastels: Night of Navy
Extras: Blender Pen, White Embossing Powder and Holiday Rhinestones
Ink Pads: Versimark and Mimento Jet Black
DSP: Hand Penned
Dies: Penned Flowers
Start by making the card base out of Night of Navy 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
The DSP 4 1/4 x 3" or larger. Cut according to the direction of the pattern. Lay the 4 1/4 inch side across the top of the card front then angle any way you want as long as both of your top corners are covered. Glue down and then turn the card over and trim off the excess. Cut some 1/4" strips for decoration and glue on top of the DSP.
Stamp the largest flower from the stamp set onto Basic White card stock and color using your method of choice. Here I used Pale Papaya Light Stampin' Blend for the flowers and Night of Navy pastell chalk with a blender pen for the leaves. Then die cut it out. Glue onto the front of the card.
Cut a piece of Basic White for the inside layer at 5 1/ 4 x 4 . Stamp the other flower on this piece and color before gluing it to the inside of the card. Here I used all Stampin Blends. The sentiment came from the Pansy Patch stamp set.
I stamped "Thanks" on the front of the card in Versimark ink and embossed with White embossing powder. Embellish with the rhinestones. I used some out of the Holiday Rhinestones.
I hope you give this card a try.
Enjoy the rest of the blog hop today. I love this suite and can not wait to see what the others have created. I know there will be lots of inspiration and lots to admire and something for everyone.
I will leave you with my thought for the day:
"There are friendships imprinted in our hearts that will never be diminished by time or distance!"
Happy Stamping and have a blessed day.
