Let’s Celebrate your Day Detailed Floral Thinlits dies paper purse and card

My project this week is inspired from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Tip Top Taupe and Bibi Cameron’s paper purse tutorial.  Bibi has a pdf tutorial and video on how to make this beautiful paper purse.   I love how the  Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies create die-cut floral designs and edges for cards, envelopes or boxes.  The purse and card set I created will make a beautiful gift for a friend or mother’s day.

Falling in Love Suite Sympathy Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an Inspiration Challenge.  Spring is the inspiration and my card was inspired by the colors of spring which are perfect for the sympathy card I had in mind.  I CASED the card from the Occasions Catalog.  The DSP and doily give this card a special touch. The doily is white on one side and ivory on the other.  I used the white side to contrast with the Very Vanilla sentiment layer.   I used paper from the Falling in Love DSP collection.  The bokeh blurred pattern on the paper are soft and pretty.  I layered vellum underneath the lace doily.  The sentiment is stamped with Soft Sky and Crumb Cake and is from the Rose Wonder stamp set.  I die cut it with the Decorative Label punch and framed with Soft Sky.  The card is embellished with basic pearls.  Super easy card to make!

Thank you with a Bunch of Blossoms Flower

The thank you card I created is based on Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the colors of Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Emerald Envy.  I created the flower using the new Bunch of Blossoms Bundle.  The petals and leaves were created with 3 step stamping to create shading and depth then die cut with the Blossom Builder Punch.  The sentiment was created with the Thoughtful Banners Bundle.  This bundle comes with a great stamp set with many sentiments and banner images and the Duet Banner punch.  Together you can create banners with many sentiments.

Dragonfly Dreams for a Wonderful Friend

This week’s sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired my card.  Here’s a sneak peak of one of the bundles in the Occasions catalog.  The Dragonfly Dreams bundle contains a stamp set and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

I stamped the dragonfly in Gold Encore ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder then die cut with the Dragonfly Dreams thinlit.  The background dots are stamped on Whisper White and are from the Dragonfly Dream stamp set and stamped in Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay.  The other layers are Gold foil and Bermuda Bay.

‘Tis The Season with Christmas Pretty Pines

This week’s card is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Elegant Eggplant, Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz.  I used the Christmas Pines Bundle to create this Christmas card in these unconventional colors.

The card base is Very Vanilla, followed by the gold foil layer.  The Elegant Eggplant layer I stamped with the star background with Encore Gold ink.  The pine leaves were die cut with the thinlit dies and adhered behind the sentiment layer which I heat embossed with gold then  fussy cut and embellished with basic pearls.

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.
