Lovely as a Tree for Christmas

My card is based on this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments which is an inspiration challenge. The challenge inspired me to use the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the Woodlands Embossing folder to create a white Christmas card.

After embossing the white layer with the Woodland Embossing folder I colored the tree trunks with Gold Wink of Stella Glitter pen.  On another layer I stamped the trees with Chocolate Chip ink then traced the branches of the trees with the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter pen to make them sparkle then embellished with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon.

The inside of the card I stamped with silver Encore ink with stamps from the Christmas Pines set.

Festive Poinsettia Flower is Joy of the Season

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge inspired my Christmas poinsettia card this week.  My card base is Whisper White.  The diagonal stripe DSP is from the Candy Cane Lane paper assortment.  Love this paper!  The Garden Green layer was embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I used a strip of Gold Satin ribbon.  After stamping the leaves and the petals of the poinsettia I traced the veins with clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.   After assembling the flower I put a gold doily behind it and used dimensionals to adhere to the Garden Green layer.  I embellished the Gold Satin Ribbon with small pearls.  I also used gold sequins and pearls to embellish the card.  I gold embossed the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set on the Whisper White banner.

Jar of Haunts Happy Halloween

I love Halloween!  Growing up my family every year we a had Halloween party to celebrate my father’s birthday.  My father passed away last year but I still make a card for him in his memory.  My card this week is based on the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments and the Great Pumpkin from Charlie Brown.

I  created my own background paper by stamping the eyes with Versamark then heat embossing with white and iridescent embossing powders.  The iridescent embossing powder is retired but I still have some and I use it when I want to add a little sparkle.

The cute jack-0-lantern is stamped with Tangerine Tango on Pumpkin Pie from the Jar of Haunts stamp set which can be ordered from the 2016 Holiday catalog.  The leaf and stalk I stamped with Early Espresso, fussy cut and outlined the leaf and veins with Early Espresso and colored with  Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie.

The jar is stamped on White Shimmer with black ink then die cut using the jar framelit from the Everyday Jars Framelits set.  I adhered the Silver Satin Ribbon then adhered the jar.  The banners Silver and Black Glimmer paper die cut using the Banner Triple punch.  For an extra punch of bling I used basic rhinestones on the eyes and all over the black layer.

Christmas Pines are Pretty Pines

This week my card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of  Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.  I used the new stamp set Christmas Pines and Pretty Pines Thinlits dies bundle along with the Pine Bough Textured Embossing Folder.  I love the pine bough thinlets.  There are three different sizes which create such pretty foliage.  I also used the bow dies to create the Real Red and Bermuda Bay bows.  The Pine Bough textured embossing folder created a beautiful background on the Natural Ivory card stock.  After stamping the sentiment I used the 2-1/2″ circle punch to die cut it.   I love this bundle.  There are so many possibilities!

Vintagle Leaves Sympathy card

My card this week is inspired by the sketch over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I used the sketch portrait style instead of landscape to create my card.  I’m looking forward to fall and the beautiful colors of the leaves so I  used the Vintage leaves stamp set and framelits.  I made the leaves using Christi Becks video for how to color the leaves and the Acorn Builder Punch for the acorn. I embossed a Very Vanilla layer with the Woodland Textured Embossing folder for a background for the leaves.  I love how my card turned out.

Join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments and show us your take on this sketch.
