Stampin’ Up! Amazing You for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday on the last Thursday in 2017, wow, where has this year gone?  We have a sketch to challenge us this week and I used the Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlets Dies to create my card for today.  Both the stamp set and thinlets dies are available for FREE during Sale-A-Bration beginning on January 3rd.

Stampin' Up! Amazing You-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Whisper White Thick card stock base.  A panel of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP was adhered to a panel of Copper Foil with liquid glue and a length of 1/4″ Copper Trim was wrapped around and finished with a bow.  I secured the ribbon with some tape on the back before adhering the whole panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

An oval was cut with one of the largest Layering Ovals Framelits Dies from Whisper White card stock.  Then, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement of the words celebrate and you from the Amazing You stamp set (available January 3rd).  They were stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Copper Emboss Powder and heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  Next, I die cut the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits in Silver Foil and adhered it to the sentiment oval with Liquid Glue.

I die cut the word amazing from the Celebrate You Thinlets (available January 3rd) three times from Silver Foil, adhered them with tiny dots of Liquid Glue, then adhered them to the oval with more Liquid Glue.  For a final touch, I used the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies to cut out a single branch in Copper Foil, added one Rhinestone Basic Jewel with a glue dot and the front was completed.  Enjoy!
