Heart and Home Perfect Birthday

Sneak peek from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! January – June 2022 mini catalog! My card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge and created with the Heart and Home Collection Set. I was able to purchase the collection because I attended OnStage. I love the soft colors, coordinating dies and the colors used in the Designer Series Paper.

The card base is Cinnamon Cider and the foliage and flowers die cut from Fresh Freesia, Garden Green and Cinnamon Cider card stock. The panels and circle were cut from the coordinating DSP and embellished with Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In Color Jewels. This set will be available in the new Stampin’ Up! January – June 2022 mini catalog.

Here’s the sketch for this week’s challenge. What project can you create with this wonderful sketch.

Gorgeous Leaves Thank You Card

I’m so in love with the Gorgeous Leaves bundle. The stamp set and coordinating dies are so easy to use and you can create many different types of cards from collage cards to simple one layer cards.

My card was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry, Smokey Slate and CASED from Amy Koenders Gorgeous Leaves card.

I started with a Basic White card base then stamped the leaves with Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry and Smoke Slate. After stamping the leaves I embossed the background with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. The sentiment from Hand Penned Petal stamp set I stamped with Versamark on a die cut label from the Tasteful Label dies then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The large Misty Moonlight leaf, Silver foil small leaf an Rich Razzleberry twig I die cut using the Intricate Leaves dies, embellished with silver twine from the Simply Elegant trim basic rhinestones colored with Rich Razzleberry, Smokey Slate and Misty Moonlight Stampin Blends.

Hello with Sunflowers

This week my card is inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. When I saw this sketch I instantly thought of using the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and dies. I stamped the sunflower with Cajun Craze on Bumblebee card stock then added white highlights to the petals with a white watercolor pencil. The leaves I stamped with Mossy Meadow on Old Olive card stock. The other foliage I die cut from brushed gold foil. The DSP is from the In Good Taste Design Series Paper. The white frame is die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. The card I then embellished with Brushed Metallic Adhesive dots and Fine Art Ribbon. The ‘Hello’ sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and Old Olive ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder then die cut with the Tasteful Label banner die.

Heartfelt Sympathy with Delicate Dahlias

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge. I used the Delicate Dahlias stamp set earned from the Sale-a-bration catalog. I also used Polished Pink and Basic black card stock. I stamped the Dahlia in Momento Black and colored it with Flirty Flamingo light and dark Stampin’ Blends. The leaves I stamped in Old Olive and colored with light and dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends then fussy cut them. The white layer I die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly die. The sentiment I stamped with Momento Black on Basic White then die cut with the Label Me Fancy Punch. I also die cut another layer with Polished Pink and Basic Black to outline the sentiment. To add some sparkle I used Wink of Stella on the Dahlia and the leaves. This card came together quickly.

Dragonfly Garden

This week’s inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is full of wonderful summer images. I was inspired by the dragonfly and the sunflowers images. I created my card using the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and dsp papers from the Harvest Meadow DSP collection. I made a tag and punched a hole with a regular hole punch using the Bumbleee Harvest Meadow dsp and Basic White card stock. I stamped the Basic White tag with the flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and colored with Stampin’ Write Markers. The large dragonfly was stamped with black Momento and die cut with the Dragonflies punch as well as the smaller dragonflies from Misty Moonlight and Cajun Craze card stock. The large dragon fly was colored using the Balmy Blue Blends and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Write marker. I embellished with Wink of Stella on the flowers and large dragonfly and finished with Linen Thread and Brushed Metallic Adhesive dots. Super easy card to make.

Pretty Pumpkins

This week I’m playing with a new stamp set and die , Pretty Pumpkins, from the mini catalog. I love this set because of the pumpkin images and dies. I used the Hand Stamped Sentiment colors of Cinnamon Cider, Old Olive and Rich Razzlebery. The Pretty Pumpkins bundle will be available on August 3 from Stampin’ U

The image shows a fall card created with Stampin Up Pretty Pumpkins fall card featuring Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Cinnamon.  The sentiment reads
If Friendship were pumpkins I'd pick you.

I used a Very Vanilla card base with Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive card stock layer and Harvest Meadow DSP. I die cut the filigree pumpkin from Gold foil. The other pumpkins I stamped in Cinnamon Cider then colored with Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends. I didn’t have the Cinnamon Cider blender pens so I used the Cajun Craze. I also used the Very Versailles text stamp set to add texture to the Old Olive layer. To embellish I used Linen Thread, 3/8″ Fine Art Ribbon and Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.  My card was also CASEd by Mary at Stamps-n-lingers.

In the Wild Birthday

I love cats! Big wild cats down to domestic cats I love them. So when I saw the Stampin’ Up! In the Wild Suite I just had to get it. My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge and the In the Wild Suite. I used tear and tape on the edges of the card then used gilded leafing. The leaves on the left were die cut with the coordinating dies from gold foil. The cat and leaves were also die cut with the coordinating dies. The face of the cat and the sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold. I used the coordinating DSP to die cut the circle from retired Layering Circles. The Evening Evergreen layer was embossed with the Animal Print embossing folder. The inside of the card is also stamped with leaf images from the In the Wild Suite. Love this suite!
