Give Thanks for all Seasons

This week on HSS  we have a sketch challenge.  The For All Things and Fall Fest framelits were perfect!  I love the stamp set and framelits.  The Color Me Autumn DSP coordinates perfectly and I used the leaves from the stamp set to create a coordinating layer.  The layer tag was created using the Tag Topper Scalloped punch and Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack to embellish the tag.

Beauty of the Season Cardinal Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Real Red, Soft Sky and Garden Green.  I used the Beauty of the Season stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog to create this Christmas card.  I used Momento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the cardinal image.  I then used a blender pen to color the cardinal and the berries.  I used a sponge dauber to lightly sponge a Soft Sky background.  The frames are die cut from the Labels Collection framelits to create a frame for the cardinal image.  The background layer I embossed with an inked up Woodgrain embossing folder .  I inked it up with Soft Suede to emphasize the grain.

Stampin Up Beauty of the Season Christmas cardI added sparkle to the berries and the cardinal with red Dazzling Details.  I also embellished with rhinestones I colored with a red Sharpie.  I used Linen Thread for the bow.

Congratulations to an Eagle Scout

This week’s sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to create this card for my best friend’s son.  He achieved the Eagle Scout rank in Boy Scouts.  I used Night of Navy, Whisper White and Red Glimmer paper.  I cut two 1″ strips of Night of Navy and Red Glimmer paper.  I downloaded the badge from the internet, printed it and cut it out.  Using the sketch made it so easy and fast.  This sketch would work for all kinds of cards and color combinations.

Happy Haunting Halloween Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge with the colors of Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz and Black.  These colors were perfect for a Halloween card.  I used the ghost from the Fall Fest stamp set and greeting from the Ghoulish Greetings stamp set.  For texture I used the Woodgrain Embossing folder and embellished with rhinestones.

I adhered the Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzaazz layers then punched the circles through both layers.  I stamped the ghosts with Versamark on the black layer and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The sentiment is also stamped in Versamrk and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  Super easy card to make!

Fine Feathers to say Hello

I recently received the Four Feathers bundle, Four Feathers Stamp set and Feathers Framelits.  I love this bundle!  I used it to create this card based on the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

Stampin' Up! Fine Feathers Hello cardI stamped the feathers with Encore silver ink on Whisper White and Basic Black then die cut them with the Feather Framelits.  The feature paper is from the Back to Black Designer Series paper pack.  I embellished the card with 1/8″ silver and Whisper White Organza ribbon along with the Scallop Edge border punch and Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and basic rhinestones.  The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White with Momento Black.

A Kinda Eclectic card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we’re having a color splash challenge with the colors of Hello Honey, Night of Navy and Marina Mist.  My card was inspired by one in the Stampn’Up! Idea 2014-2015 Idea Catalog on page 69.

The card base is Whisper White and I rounded one of the corners of the card by tracing a half circle on the corner then cutting the round with scissors.  I stamped the flourish with Hello Honey from the Flowering Flourishes stamp set then adhered a Tea Lace Paper Doily.  I stamped two flowers from the Beautiful Bunch stamp set.  The larger flower I stamped with Momento black ink and colored it with Night of Navy and Marina Mist markers.  The smaller flower is stamped with Marina Mist.  The sentiment and butterfly are stamped from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  I die cut the flowers with the Fun Flower and Petite Petals punch.  I used the Elegant Butterfly punch to die cut the butterfly.  The sentiment was die cut with the Apothecary Accents franelit.  The inside of the card is layered with a Hello Honey striped paper from the Lullaby DSP.
