Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Lantern for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, and welcome to another blog hop!  I am sharing the Seasonal Lantern stamp set bundle (available tomorrow).  I know you have to be so excited to get your hands on so many new products!


Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern-Cardiology by Jari

Here is our sketch for this week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Sketch

A panel of Very Vanilla was adhered to Cajun Craze and then to panels of Painted Autumn DSP and Lemon Lime Twist with Liquid Glue.  Then, all were popped onto the Cajun Craze card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I built my lantern with Cajun Craze, Copper Foil and Very Vanilla.  Normally the center of the lantern would be cut out, but I filled it in with a piece from a lantern I cut out of Very Vanilla.  The candle, gourds, pine cone branches and bow were stamped and cut out with the coordinating Lantern Builder Framelits (available tomorrow! and bundle to save 10%).  The candle was adhered to the center of the lantern and then the “halo” of light stamped around it.  All of the decorative elements were added with glue dots and dimensionals.  Then, the whole lantern was popped on to the center with dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped in Cajun Craze and then either end was punched with my Banner Triple Punch and adhered to the front with dimensionals.  A length of Linen Thread was wrapped around the stem of a small Copper Foil leaf die cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets and finished off with a bow for the final touch.  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of the post.
