Another Stampin' Up! Fancy Phrases Stamp Set 

After using the Fancy Phrases Stamp Set on yesterdays card, I couldn't wait to use it again today to make this card using another new In Color, called bumblebee.  I really wanted some Black and White striped paper to make this card, and quickly created my own using a Basic Black Stampin' Blends on Whisper White cardstock.  Since I already had the Hippo & Friends Dies on my desk form yesterday's card, I selected another set of labels and used the dies again on today's card. These items are all from the Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 annual catalog.    

The basecard for this card is the new In color called, Bumblebee.  Then I wanted to use some striped Black and White Paper, so I created it using Dard Basic Black Stampin' Blends and the ruled edge of my Grid Paper.  I turned the brush side of the marker on its edge and just free-handed the stripes about  a quarter inch wide ever quarter inch.  It worked!     It isn't perfect, but we've had Designer Series Paper with similar stripes that weren't perfect and it looked great.  I used a layer of whisper White on the side opposite the stripes and cut a 1/4" strip of Bumblebee to hide the seam in the middle of the two pieces of paper.  a layer of Basic Gray.  Then a layer of Whisper White dry embossed using the Tasteful Textures 3D Embossing Folder.    

The flower images were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento and colored with So Dark Saffron Stampin' Blends, the Dark Mango Melody Stamping Blends, and the leaves were colored with Light Old Olive Stampin' Blends

The sentiments is also from the Fancy Phrases Stamp Set.  It is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a matted set of labels die cut using two dies from the Hippo & Friends Dies. 


To add a little flair to the card, I added three 2020-2022 In Color enamel Dots, and I created a small bow out of the Black/White Baker's Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.
