Giggle Greetings Happy Birthday

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge.  I created this card with the Giggle Greetings stamp set.  So many cute sentiments are in this set.  I used the Blendabilities to color the image and used the Moonlight designer series paper stack.

Festival of Trees

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color splash challenge with the colors of Tempting Turquoise, Smoky Slate and Pool Party.  As soon as I saw these colors I knew I wanted to create a card with the Festival of Trees bundle.  Creating this card was easy with the Tree Punch!

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.
