You’re Absolutely Amazing

The card I created this week is CASED from a card featured on page 98 of the new Annual Catalog using the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge colors of – Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Bumblebee.  Not only does the Annual Catalog feature wonderful products but also a variety of projects showing how the stamps, dies and embellishments may be used.  

For the background I embossed a Whisper White layer with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder then sponged Bumblebee ink.  I also die cut two strips of Whisper White with the scallop die.  I stamped the outline of the flower full strength then stamped stamped off for stamping the inside of the flower.  The sentiment is also from the stamp set and stamped in Flirty Flamingo and die cut with coordinating die. 

The leaves I stamped  in Momento black then die cut them with the die.  The one leaf on the left is stamped then fussy cut.  For embellishments I used the Gold Gilded Gems and Gold Fine Art ribbon.

Colorful Butterflies wish Happy Mother’s day

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 2021-04-05_colorful_butterflies_happy_mothers_day_card-1.jpg

I used Whisper White card base and layers and the Beauty Abounds speckled stamp for the background. For the smaller butterflies I used the small butterfly dies and the Butterfly duet punch to die cut butterflies and embellished with basic rhinestones. I also die cut foliage from Silver foil paper and adhered with glue dots. The sentiment is from retired Teeny Tiny Wishes and stamped with Momento Black. This was an easy card to put together and can be adapted to birthday, thinking of you or sympathy by changing the colors of the butterflies.

Thank You with an Amazing Iris

Spring has sprung!  l am so glad it’s finally here and a welcome change.  My card this week is inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Highland Heather and the stamp set ‘Inspiring Iris’.  I embossed the background layer with the Pine Wood Planks 3D embossing folder.  The iris stamp set is a two step set.  I stamped the iris and leaves in Momento black then stamped the foliage with Pear Pizzazz and the iris in Highland Heather.  I then die cut the oval with the Stitched Shapes Dies wrapped white baker’s twine then adhered the oval with dimensionals.  The sentiment I stamped with Momento black on So Saffron.  I’m sending theis card to a friend so I had to stamp the envelope with the irises.

Super easy card and love the two step stamping.

Friendly Flamingo Birthday Card

I survived the winter storm in San Antonio, TX!  The week of February 15th 2021 was not a typical winter week for us.  We normally don’t have snow except for a day and not every winter.  Last week it was so cold we lost electricity and water.  I know for many of you snow days are not unusual.  However, I’m glad it’s behind us.

Longing for tropical weather I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  The colors in the mood board and the colorful flowers inspired me to create this birthday card with the Friendly Flamingo stamp set in the new mini catalog.  The card base is Granny Apple Green followed by Daffodil Delightful.  The Oh So Ombre printed paper is FREE with a $50 purchase right now during Sale-a-bration.  All die cut elements, except the stitched circle are from the Friendly Flamingo Bundle.

Just for you Sweet Strawberry Valentine

With Valentine’s day so close I was inspired to create another project.  I had saved  a Russell Stover’s heart shaped box with the idea of repurposing it.  So I decided to re-use the box to create a gift for my hubby.  I’m going to put some sweet memories in the form of my favorite pictures in the box and give it to him on Valentine’s day.  I was also inspired by the color challenge of Real Red, Blushing Bride and Bermuda Bay at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I started with embossing a piece of Whisper White paper then embossing with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I then adhered it to the top of the heart box then cut to the lid with paper snips.  I adhered a Vellum Doily followed by gold hoop.  I was inspired by the card on page 44 of the mini catalog to create the 3D strawberries.  I first stamped the strawberries with Real Red on Real Red paper then die cut with the Strawberry Builder Punch. I added the leaves stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on Bermuda Bay paper.  I also added gold springs die cut with the sprig punch,  Other embellishments include Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, retired 3/8″ Sheer Real Red ribbon and basic rhinestones.  The sentiment is stamped on Blushing Bride with Real Red.

Hearts & Kisses

January is almost gone and February is almost here!  The next holiday is Valentine’s day!  This is a wonderful holiday because it’s a day to celebrate our love for family and friends.  Valentine’s day, the Hearts & Kisses bundle and the new Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge inspired me to create this card.

The New Hearts & Kisses bundle includes a super cute Kiss stamp set and coordinating punch to die cut the lips and heart.  The card stock colors I used are Real Red, Petal Pink and Whisper White.  I used the Ornate Layers dies to create the Whisper White scrolled frame.  The hearts behind the lips were die cut using the Heart Punch Pack.  I stamped the small hearts in Real Red with the hearts stamp from the Hearts & Kisses set.  The Petal Pink heart was also stamped from this set and die cut with the Kiss punch.  The large heart I embellished with Polka Dot tulle ribbon and the small hearts I embellished with basic clear rhinestones.

Quite Curvy Winter Card

Inspired by the first challenge of 2021 from Hand Stamped Sentiments I decided to use the Quite Curvy bundle and Curvy Christmas stamp set.  The card was very easy to make using the dies and stamps.  I used Seaside Spray for the card base and Night of Navy for the curvy edges and embossed with Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  The foliage and snowflakes are stamped with Seaside Spray and the bow and sentiment stamped in Night of Navy.  The bow I colored with a blender pen and Seaside Spray ink.  I added basic rhinestones to the snowflakes to make them sparkle.

A Poinsettia Place Christmas

I have to finish up my Christmas cards and the mad dash is on to send them out this weekend.  One of the cards I created is inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Misty Moonlight.

I created this card using the Poinsettia Petals Bundle.  Love this bundle.  The bundle includes dies that also emboss.  I die cut the poinsettias from Whisper White, embossed and sponged the petals with Cherry Cobbler.  The centers are beaded pearls which is part of the suite.  I also stamped the leaves an berries on Whisper White and  die cut using the bundle.  I used the Misty Moonlight ribbon behind the poinsettia.  The silver sprigs I die cut with the Sprig punch out silver foil.  The card base is Misty Moonlight and the Old Olive layer is DSP from the Poinsettia Place DSP, the White Vellum paper is the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper.  The paper is flocked and so pretty.  The sentiment from the Poinsettia Place stamp set I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

See what other beautiful projects the design team created with this color challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Misty Moonlight.
