Seasonal Lantern Bundle for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Seasonal Lantern Bundle from Stampin’ Up! for the card I am sharing with you today.  We have a color challenge this week.

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern-Cardiology by Jari

My card base is Pool Party card stock, and the next layer is a panel of Quilted Christmas DSP matted to a panel of Real Red card stock and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Next, I matted a panel of Christmas Around the World (Pool Party/snow) to a panel of Pool Party card stock and adhered it to the center of the card with Liquid Glue.

Then, I stamped the lantern, candle, bow and greenery in Basic Black Archival ink and die cut them all with the Lantern Builder Framelits Dies.  I used my Pool Party, Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers to color in all of the die cut images.  The candle was dry fitted into the lantern, then I stamped the candle flame above where the candle would be glued down in Crushed Curry ink.  The sentiment is one from the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto Whisper White.  I used my Paper Snips to notch either end, attached part of a Foil Snowflake with Liquid Glue, then added Stampin’ Dimensionals and popped it onto the narrow front panel.  Finally, the lantern was adorned with the greenery and bow, and then popped onto the front with more dimensionals.

The inside Whisper White panel was stamped with a sentiment from the Labels to Love stamp set.  Then, I stamped the floral image from Seasonal Lantern in Basic Black Archival ink, let it dry and then colored it in with Emerald Envy and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers.  Enjoy!
