Thank You Kindly - Delicate Dahlias - Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop July 2021


Hello and welcome back to my blog. You are visiting Ann Alexander from Australia. Today I have a card for the "Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop". Our theme this month is "Make It Sparkle". I decided to go big on the sparkle on this card. If you follow me, you would know I love gold or gold accents on cards, but this card definitely allowed me to let my inner sparkle come out. I used the 'Be Dazzling' Designer Series Paper and the Delicate Dahlias stamp set from Stampin' Up!® which are both brand new Sale-a-bration items. My main photo is taken outside so you can see more of the sparkle as well as a video to show it off some more.






Instructions:

- Use a piece of Basic Black card A4/Letter cut in half lengthwise and folded. 

- Use a smaller piece of the Be Dazzling DSP and adhere to the card base using Liquid Glue. Use another piece of Basic Black card splattered with Clear Wink of Stella and attach this layer to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Use a piece of Paper Lattice and apply Versamark to the whole piece and then heat emboss  with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. Apply dabs of Liquid Glue to the back and attach to the card.

- Stamp the Delicate Dahlias onto Basic White card with Versamark and heat emboss with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. Apply Clear Wink of Stella to the Dahlias. Stamp the leaves onto Vellum with Versamark and then heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder (I actually used leftovers from this card). Fussy cut both the flowers and the leaves and attach to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots. 

- Stamp the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set using Tuxedo Black ink onto a small strip of Basic White and attach to a piece of the Be Dazzling DSP. Attach the sentiment to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

- Use some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add some final sparkle to the card.

Measurements:

- Basic Black Card base A4/Letter cut in half lengthwise and folded

- Be Dazzling  DSP: A4 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"/ 14.4 x 10 cm or Letter 4" x 5 1/4"
