Have a Happy Blooming Birthday in a Flower Patch

April showers bring My flowers.  So they say.  However, here it is May and there are flowers but it’s still raining n San Antonio.   San Antonio received almost 7.5 inches of rain in April, making it the seventh-wettest April since 1886, the first year that precipitation levels were recorded for the area. All this rain has made my flowers grow.  Here’s a photo of the flowers in my garden which provided my inspiration for my card.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I used the Flower Patch Polymer Bundle to create the flowers and leaves.  For the sentiment I stamped the sentiment with Versamark then embossed it with gold embossing powder.  The cloud shape is from the Word Bubbles Framelits set.  For additional texture the second layer is embossed with the Chevron embossing folder.

Thinking of you in 2015-2017 New In Colors

For this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge.  I love the inspiration this sketch provided.  I used some of the new In Colors 2015-2017 to create this ‘Thinking of You’ card.

Stampin up In Colors 2015-2017 I used Natural Ivory for my card base and layered with the Mint Macaron.  For additional interest I used the corner punch to round opposite corners.  I stamped the spotted background with Mint Macaron using a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  I also used the fern stamp from Birthday Basics.  The leaves and the flower were stamped with stamps from the Crazy about You.  The leaves in Cucumber Crush and the flower in Watermelon Wonder are prefect cheerful colors.  The butterfly is stamped with Black Stazon and I used Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron to sponge the wings.  The beautiful Delightful Dijon lace ribbon is also from new 2015-2017 In Colors collection.

Join us with your interpretation of our sketch and see what our talented design team has created.

A Bouquet of Flowers for My Wonderful Mother

Since mother’s day is tomorrow, I wanted to post the mother’s day card I made for my aunt who is like my mother.  She has loved and cared for me and my siblings since our mother passed away when we were very young.  She’s always been there for us and are truly blessed to have such a wonderful person in my life.

Stampin up Bouquet Bigz L Die mothers day card

I created the flowers with the Bouquet Bigz L Die.  I followed this video to make these flowers.  I didn’t use the stems part of the video since I adhered the flowers to the card front with a glue gun.  For sparkle, I added Dazzling Details to all the flowers.  To add a touch of vintage I used Typeset DSP paper.  The pretty lace ribbon, Sahara Sand Lace trim is from the Occasions catalog.  So pretty!  The sentiment is from the retired stamp set Delightful Dozen, but you can use any sentiment.  This card would also be a great for birthdays or thinking of you.

Your Perfect Day Wedding Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Strawberry Slush, Hello Honey and Night of Navy.  I recently purchased the “Your Perfect Day” stamp set and thought these colors would be perfect for a modern wedding card.

I stamped the wreath with Night of Navy but stamped off first so the image would be a lighter shade.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark then embossed with Sterling Silver embossing powder.  I stamped the flowers in Hello Honey and Strawberry Slush.  I also used the small flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  I embellished the bottom of the card with a border from the Finishing Touches Edgelits and Venetian Crochet Trim and small Vintage Faceted button.

Birthday Butterfly Basics

The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  I have to catch up on birthday cards and decided to use the Butterfly Basics stamp set and framelits.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set!  I took inspiration from the card on page 26 of the Occasions catalog and the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used the colors of Calypso Coral, Pistachio Pudding, Hello Honey and Island Indigo.  I used the Butterflies Basics and thinlits die along with Papillion Potpourri stamp set and coordinating punches, Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches.

Stampin Up Birthday Butterfly BasicsI stamped the leaf foliage and flowers followed by the dotted background stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  The honey comb images are from the Butterflies Basics stamp set, as well as the sentiment. Here’s the sketch tht also inspired my card.
