Lovely Friends Sneak Peek for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I have another sneak peek from the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog to share with you today.  I used the Lovely Friends Bundle to create this card.  You are in for a surprise with this Bundle!  

Here is our color challenge this week:  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop color challenge

Stampin' Up! Lovely Friends Bundle Cardiology by Jari


Lovely Friends has two sentiments with large fonts and several smaller sentiments with fun fonts like the one above.  I started with a Pear Pizzaz card stock base and added layers of Chocolate Chip and Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper (the Pear Pizzaz dotted panel) with Dimensionals.  Layers of Peekaboo Peach and more Tasty Treats DSP (Peekaboo Peach sun pattern) were glued to the middle of the first layer.  I stamped the largest sentiment from Lovely Friends in Chocolate Chip onto a panel of Whisper White, then adhered it to a panel of Chocolate Chip card stock.   The flowers and leaves were stamped in Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzaz, then I die cut the flowers with the coordinating Lovely Laurel Thinlets Dies.  The leaves were fussy cut with Paper Snips.  

And now, for the surprise I mentioned earlier….

The Lovely Laurel Thinlets Dies are just gorgeous and they are created so that they pop out when the card is opened! Don’t you just love them?  The laurels were die cut from Pear Pizzaz and the small flowers were stamped with Peekaboo Peach onto Whisper White.  The banner is two pieces just like the laurels and fit together by a little slot that is die cut from the framelits.  

The Lovely Friends Bundle will be available for purchase from the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog beginning June 1st. Remember, when you bundle the stamp set and the framelits, you save 10%.  

Now, it’s time to head on over to see what Kristi has created for us today.
