A Fitting Florets Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Cherry Cobble, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. These colors are perfect for Christmas cards so I decided to create a Christmas card with the Fitting Florets Collection.

There are two stamp sets, dies, paper and embellishments in Fitting Florets collection. I used the Soft Succulent as my card base then used a Cherry Cobbler layer followed by the DSP. I colored the berries on the DSP with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ blends. For the frame and sprigs I die cut using the Bough Punch and Fitting Florests die from the frame out of the Distressed Gold paper. I love how the gold looks antiqued. The greeting I heat embossed with gold then colored the buds on the sprigs with Cherry Cobble blends. For embellishing I added a bow of retired 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and retired Cherry Cobbler rhinestones from the Holiday Basic Jewels.

Fall is here and the days are cooler! What do you like best about fall? The pumpkins or the leaves?

My card this week is a 4″ x 4″ card CASED from the current mini catalog. The card base is Mango Melody. The Rustic Harvest DSP paper strips I adhered to Basic White card stock. I die cut the pumpkins from Pumpkin Pie and the sentiment from Basic Black. The large brown kraft leaf is from the Rustic Harvest suite. There are 25 leaf labels and 50 amber gems in the package.

My card this week is a sympathy card created with the stamp sets Painted Poppies, Peaceful Moments and Heal your Heart. I also created this card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Pool Party, Starry Night and Pumpkin Pie.

I started with a Basic White card base and stamped the texture with the stamp from the Painted Poppies set in Starry Night., The Pumpkin Pie die cut poppy is framed with silver foil and layered over Shimmery White card stock. The leaves were die cut from Starry Night and Pool Party. The Shimmery White layer is framed with Pool Party and Starry Night. The inside of the card I stamped with the poppies images from the Painted Poppies and stamped with the sentiment from Sale-a-bration Heal Your Heart set.

Hello Harvest Pumpkin Card

This week’s inspiration comes from Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch. When I saw the circle in the sketch I new immediately I wanted to use the pumpkin from the Hello Harvest bundle and the beautiful Rustic Harvest paper.

The card base is black and used the paper with pumpkins and Crushed Curry print for my card. I stamped the pumpkin in Memento Black and colored it with light and dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends then die cut it and also the vines in Mossy Meadow. The sunflowers I also stamped in Memento Black and colored with light and dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends then die cut with sunflower die. The leaves I stamped in Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede and also die cut with leaf die. The little acorn is die cut from Early Espresso and Soft Suede using the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing set. The sentiment is also from the Hello Harvest stamp set. I used Mossy Meadow linen trim and gold from the Simply Elegant Trim.

For the inside of the card I stamped a sunflower and flourish. I also used a strip of the dsp at the bottom.

Here is the sketch for Hand Stamped Sentiment Sketch Challenge. Visit HSS to see more inspiration from the design team.

Happy Birthday! Let’s Celebrate with Sunflowers

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge. The images are perfect for this time of year. For this challenge the Celebrate with Sunflowers and Sunflower dies were perfect.

Since the sunflower is round I decided to make an easel card. I haven’t made one in a while and thought to make a circle easel card.

I stamped the sunflower with Memento Black on Daffodil Delight card stock. I then used Stampin’ Blends Mango Melody light and dark, Daffodil Delight dark, Calypso Coral light, Crumb Cake light and dark to color the sunflower. I used Patty Bennet’s tutorial for coloring the sunflower.

The base of the easel card is Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Basic White. I used the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder to emboss the Basic White and Daffodil Delight. I used the Forever Flourishing dies to die cut the foliage in Shaded Spruce. I used the Sunflower dies to die cut the sunflower and the gold foliage. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and die cut using the Label Me Fancy punch.. I embellished with the Amber Gems. I also used Wink of Stella on the sunflower. This card was a very easy card to make.

A Splendid Day for Sending Hugs

My card is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay.

I used the Stampin’ UP! Splendid Thoughts stamp set and dies to create my card. The background layer I color washed with Bermuda Bay and a water painter. I let dry then stamped with the leaves. I stamped the larger leaves with Black Memento and water colored with Bermuda Bay using a water painter then die cut two of these. I also die cut the open leaf foliage in Rich Razzleberry and Basic White. I also stamped foliage in Calypso Coral then die cut. I arranged the foliage in the middle with glue dots and dimensionals and added gold trim ribbon. I stamped the sentiment then die cut using the stitched half circle from the bundle.

Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and see what the design team has created with these beautiful colors.

Stampin’ Up Hues of Happiness Card

I had just received the Hues of Happiness and was so excited to play with it. I love the paper and stamps. I used it to create a card with this week’s sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I embossed my white card base with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.I then used a layer of the Hues of Happiness DSP along with strips of the DSP. I used Flirty Flamingo as a solid back drop to the sentiment layer. I used the edge die on the sentiment layer to add interest. I also stamped one of the flowers with Memento Black then colored it with retired Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. To embellish I used the coordinating Glossy Dots Assortment and Simply Elegant gold trim.

Christmas in July with Paper Pumpkin

This week my card was inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. With temperatures of 100 degrees almost every day it’s easy to day dream of a trip to the mountains to experience cooler weather. Like most crafters I have materials and in this case Paper Pumpkin kits I haven’t used but meant to. The inspiration images from Hand Stamped Sentiments looks like a Hallmark Christmas movie. I don’t yet have the Sale-a-Bration Tree Lot dies which are free with a $100 purchase from Stampin’ Up!, but oh wait I do have a die cut of a camper from the July 2021 Paper Pumpkin. I know it’s not a current kit however you can subscribe to Paper Pumpkin to receive a monthly kit to create quick cute cards. The cool thing about these kits is you receive EVERYTHING you need to create the cards. LOVE IT! You can put them together using the included instruction or you can create cards of your own design. These are great to take on a trip and be crafty. In my case I was able to create a Christmas card with a cute camper.

I created my card as a Christmas card to go along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge so I used the pieces from the kit and added gold ribbon and Red Rhinestones and clear rhinestones colored with Stampin’ Blends Shaded Spruce and Night of Navy. The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set. This set is has many great sentiments for Christmas cards.

Here is the inspiration image from Hand Stamped Sentiments. To see more inspiration visit Hand Stamped Sentiments and see more projects created by the design team.

Friends are like Seashells, Beautiful

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge of gorgeous Stampin’ Up Colors Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather and Orchid Oasis. These colors to me are beach colors so I decided to use the Friends are like Seashells stamp set, Seashell dies and Seashells 3D embossing folder. Used together they create beautiful textured cards. The background gradient I created using the blending brushes to blend Orchid Oasis at the top, Highland Heather in the center then Coastal Cabana on the bottom. The order I used the products to create the shells layer are I die cut the seashells, stamped the seashells then embossed. When I stamped the seashells I used the blending brushes to apply ink to the stamp then stamp the image. Using this technique created beautiful gradients of color.

I finished the card by embellishing with beautiful Opal Rounds. I love they are iridescent just like bubbles.

Visit Hand Stamped Sentiments to see more projects inspired by these colors then join us! We’d love to see what you created using these colors.
