Stampin’ Up! Botanical Blooms

My share for today is from Botanical Blooms from Stampin’ Up! and is inspired by the Stamp, Ink Paper sketch Challenge #43.

Botanical Blooms

 

Here is the sketch.  Make sure you head over to check out all of the wonderful cards for this challenge!

SIP-Sketch-Challenge-43-800

 

I cut a panel of the Botanical Gardens DSP and pulled out the Botanical Blooms stamp set and began stamping in the flower centers with Calypso Coral and Delightful Dijon inks.  Once they were completed, I adhered a panel of Mint Macaron to the art piece with Liquid glue.  I chose the Hello Honey panel from the Botanical Gardens DSP and adhered it to the front of the Whisper White Thick card base with Liquid Glue.

Botanical Blooms

My next step was to pull out the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies and cut out a flower and the inner parts using some of the Botanical  Gardens DSP, Hello Honey and Basic Black card stock.  The center of the flower is popped onto the flower base with a dimensional.

I stamped the sentiment from Birthday Blooms in Cajun Craze onto a panel of Whisper White and cut it out with the next to the smallest Banners Framelits.  I also cut out that same banner in Cajun Craze and framed the sentiment.

A strand of Linen Thread was wrapped around the art panel three times, then attached to the back with a small piece of tape before securing the whole panel onto the card base at an angle with dimensionals.

Botanical Blooms

For the inside, I inked up the large flower from Botanical Blooms in Mint Macaron ink and added the small flowers from Botanicals for You in Cajun Craze and Hello Honey inks.

I decided to add a little color to the envelope flap with more of the Botanical Gardens DSP with my Envelope Liners Framelits.

Hi Stampers, and welcome to our Thursday Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  We have a sketch challenge to play along with.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Blooms stamp set for my creation today.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms by Cardiology by Jari

And here is the sketch in case you would like to play along:

Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms by Cardiology by Jari

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Blooms and the whole Botanical Gardens suite is one of my favorites in the Occasions Catalog!  I started by creating the flowers with the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies.  Then, I cut out the leaves and stamped the details with the Botanical Blooms stamps.  Notice that the DSP has also been stamped-the leaves and flower centers are free of detail so that you may add your own!

I also used a stamp from Botanicals for You, from the Sale-a-Bration catalog, for the banner sentiment.  This set is free with any order of $50 before tax and shipping until March 31st. If you order the Botanical Blooms bundle, you can get Botanicals for You for FREE!!

I covered a part of the sentiment with tape before stamping, then removed the tape and stamped it onto the banner image from Bloomin’ Love. Notice that I also covered the two leaf images from that banner (with tape) and then stamped.  The banner and flowers are popped up onto the card base with Dimensionals, and the leaves added with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I decided to keep the inside very simple:
