Flowering Tulips

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink and Pumpkin Orange. These colors made me think of tulips so I used the Flowering Tulips bundle to create this card. I also CASED my card from Stephanie Kauffman. It was fun to make the tulips for this card.

After die cutting the tulip flowers I left the die on the cut flowers and sponged color on them then put them together.

I followed Stephanie’s instructions for making the trellis which was made with a square die. Here are the pictures she posted on her FB post on how she made the trellis. What I did to create the trellis was to measure the square die from the retired stitched shapes then I drew the trellis using Illustrator. You can download the PDF .

Thinking of you with Flowering Fields

Hand Stamped Sentiments is back with a new sketch challenge and I created this card with the new Flowering Fields Suite. The card I created was CASED from the January – June 2022 Mini Catalog. Making this card was easy since only the sentiment was stamped and all the other elements were die cut using the dies from this suite.

The card base is Pool Party and the second layer is Basic White sponged with Pool Party. The clouds were heat embossed with White Embossing powder. The windmill and flowers were die cut using the dies from the Flowering Fields Suite. The sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set was die cut using the retired Scalloped Oval punch. The Windowpane Check Ribbon is also from the Flowering Fields Suite.

Here’s the sketch. Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments and see more inspiration.

The other foliage was also die cut using dies from the suite. The sprig punch was used to die cut sprigs from gold Metallic Specialty paper.

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.
