Peaceful Moments Friendship card

These are trying times and we are all coping with the help of family, friends and stamping therapy.  During my stamping therapy I created this card with the Peaceful Moments bundle.  The poppy flowers and die cut background were die cut using the Poppy Moments Dies.  The sentiment was stamped using the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  The bright cheerful colors were inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Poppy Parade, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.

Memorable Tropical Birthday

I have been wanting to stamp with the Tropical Oasis Suite and I finally was able to have the opportunity with the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  Love all the dies and beautiful stamps. I used Cajun Craze for the base and embossed it with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder inked with StayzOn Saddle Brown.  It beautifully embossed the paper to look like it was woven.  The ink gave the embossing some shadowing.  The flowers and leaves were colored with watercolor pencils, blended with a blender pen then die cut.  I used the the Stitched Rectangles dies for the sentiment.  The ribbon is retired 1-1/4″ Juteband ribbon.  For added sparkle I colored the flowers with Wink of Stella.  It’s difficult to see in the photo.

Lovely Day Paper Pumpkin Alternative Birthday Card

I’m loving the Paper Pumpkin kits!  With the Lovely Day February kit you can make three card versions.  I made one of the cards using the Paper Pumpkin instructions and was then inspired by a friend’s card which she made with the tri-fold card but with a twist.  She made the top part of the tri-fold card for holding a gift card but then added a layer at the back for stamping a birthday sentiment and including a personal note.  My card was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I’ll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

For my project I was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Lovely Lipstick, Mint Macaron and Gorgeous Grape and the January I’ll Be Yours Paper Pumpkin kit.  From the kit I used the tag, baker’s twine,envelope and 3″ x 3″ Mint Macaron card.  I also, used the floral stamp from the kit to stamp in white StaysOn on Lovely Lipstick then punched it out with the heart punch.   I sponged Mint Macaron and Gorgeous Grape on the background layer then adhered the envelope.   The Mint Macaron card may be also used to write a personal message.  This project was so easy since all the elements except the heart and background layer were included in the kit.

Heartfelt Happy Valentine’s Day

Here’s wishing you a heartfelt happy Valentine’s day!  I created this card with the new stamp set Heartfelt and From my Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Both are from the Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog.  Love the colors of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo.  My inspiration for the card is from the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I used Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo doily hearts.  I stamped the ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ heart then die cut with the heart punch then layered it with the stamped doily heart in StayzOn white then die cut with lacy edge heart punch.  The heart button is from the retired Sweet Dreams embellishments and tied with white baker’s twine.  The white scalloped banner at the bottom I die cut using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch then tied with Real Red retired Mixed Satin Ribbon.   The inside of the card I stamped with stamps from the Heartfelt stamp set.

Thinking of you this winter

Living in San Antonio we don’t get very cold winters but sometimes we get snow like in December 2017.  This winter has been very mild and haven’t had freezing temperatures but one day.  However, I can still have a wintry scene if only onmy cards.  This week my snowflake card is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge.

Stampin Up Colorful Seasons Thinking of You Snowflake cardI used the Seasonal Layers dies to die cut the snowflakes.  I embossed the background with the retired Softly Falling embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set Colorful Seasons.  I stamped ‘Thinking of you’ with Versamark then heat embossed with silver  embossing powder.  I also added basic rhinestones for extra sparkle.

This Little Piggy Celebrates

‘This Little Piggy’ stamp set is so cute.  It was introduced in the 2017-2018 Catalog and remains one of my favorites.  I used Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the ‘celebrate’ from the retired ‘Thoughtful Banners’ set for the sentiment since I plan on giving this card to a co-worker for her birthday.  The white layer was embossed using the Pinewood Planks 3D folder then layered with Flirty Flamingo and Pretty Peacock cardstock.  The flower I die cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits then adhered a Clear Faceted Gem I colored with the dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend marker.  I was inspired to use the colors of Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow and Pretty Peacock from the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge
