Stampin’ Up! Wood Words for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We have a new look!  For this week’s sketch challenge, I created a card with the upcoming Wood Words Bundle from Stampin’ Up!

Here is our sketch:

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I paired the Wood Words Bundle with some of the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper is the bomb!  Lots of different patterns of wood look 6″ x 6″ paper.  And, no more messy tearing, the glue is gone, and these sheets are already separated. Yippee!  

First, I adhered a panel of the retiring Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (the checked panel) to a panel of Early Expresso card stock.  Then, I adhered a panel of the Wood Textures DSP to the bottom half.  A length of Burlap Ribbon was then adhered to the center with some Tear & Tape Adhesive after I notched one end.

Next, I stamped the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set in Tip Top Taupe (retired) ink onto a panel of Whisper White a couple of times to create my own DSP for the square.  It was framed with a larger scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits.  I used 2 of the smaller circles from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies for the center of the squares.  The rooster was stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White and die cut using the coordinating die from the bundle.

The circle cuts were adhered to the squares with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then the square attached to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from Wood Words in Early Expresso ink onto Whisper White card stock and cut it with a die from the Popcorn Box Thinlets.  A second banner was also cut from a scrap of the Wood Textures DSP, cut in half and adhered to the sentiment with some Liquid Glue, then popped onto the front with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally the card front was adhered to the Whisper White card stock base with more Dimensionals.

No sentiment added to the inside, just one more rooster in Real Red ink and a strip left over from the front added to the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered it to a panel of Early Expresso card stock, then added the whole panel to the Whisper White base.  

A complete list of stamping supplies needed to complete this card as well as card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.
