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 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.

For Peep’s Sake Enjoy An Egg-Cellent Easter

Hello!  I’m glad to be back creating and blogging.  I’ve been gone for a few week’s due to my father’s passing.  It’s been difficult to get back into the routine of life and to muster up the motivation to be creative.  It’s coming back little by little and  getting back into my craft room and being among my stamp sets and inks has been inspiring.  More inspiration has also come from seeing projects from the Hand Stamped Sentiments design team.

I used the colors of Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color splash challenge.  I also have so many great products from the Occasions catalog I had not had an opportunity to use.  One of them is the super cute Easter set For Peep’s Sake.  Perfect for Easter or cute spring card.  Another product I had to play with is the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  You can create beautiful die cut butterflies with this set.  With so many great products and the colors provided by HSS I was inspired to create this Easter card.

Hearts a Flutter, Love You

With Valentine’s day a few weeks away, I created a Valentine’s day card.  I used the Hearts a Flutter Framelits and stamp set.  Although the stamp set is retired you can still purchase the digital set.  I used the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments to inspire me and the colors of Real Red, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Whisper White.

The designer series paper is from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  The cute border was created with the new Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  It creates a cute border and lots of cute hearts.  The scalloped red heart is stamped with White Whisper Craft ink then die cut with Hearts a Flutter Framelits.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and die cut with a banner from the Bitty Banners Framelits set.  The small hearts are the hearts punched out with the Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  To add sparkle I embellished the card with basic rhinestones and vintage faceted buttons.

Groovy Love From My Heart

This week’s challenge is a color splash challenge with the colors of Basic Black, Whisper White and Melon Mambo.  These colors inspired me to use my Groovy Love stamp set and coordinating heart punch to create this card.  I also used the new Happy Heart embossing folder from the Occasions catalog on the Whisper White layer along with the Fun Frames embossing folders for the hearts.  After embossing the frame on to Whisper White I cut the frame and sponged with Melon Mambo.

I stamped the polka dot heart and used the Sweetheart punch to die cut it.  I also used the punch to die cut a Melon Mambo and Whisper White hearts.  The edges of the Whisper White heart is sponged with Melon Mambo.  I then adhere the hearts on to the frame with Dimensionals.  I then used 1/8″ Melon Mambo taffeta ribbon to embellish.
