‘Tis the Season

‘Tis the season for snowflakes and Christmas.  On Thursday something rare happened…it snowed in San Antonio.  We got about 2 inches of snow and for about a day we had a glimpse of a white Christmas.  It was lovely. The snowfall inspired me to create Christmas card based on the color challenge of Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Twist.

I used these the snowflake dies from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to die cut the snowflakes from Silver Glimmer paper then sponged them with Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Twist.  The background layer I embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing folder.  I embellished with basic rhinestones, gold satin ribbon and gold sequin trip.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Pines stamp set which I stamped with Black and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for sparkle.

Jingle all the way on a sleigh ride

Inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments and Hallmark Christmas movies I created this card with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle all the Way stamp set.  The Pool Party  layer I embossed with the Gently Falling embossing folder.  I used strips of Whisper White and Vellum to die cut the town, trees and sleigh.

I used Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to accent the hills and roofs.   For the sentiment I used heat stick powder and embellished with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  I also die cut a star from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. To wrap it all up I used 1/8″ silver ribbon and basic rhinestones.

‘Tis the Season to Sparkle with Seasonal Layers

My card this week has been inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments  sketch challenge and all the Christmas movies I’ve been watching on the Hallmark channel.  Every year as part of preparing for the holidays I watch Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel.  All the movies seem to start with a beautiful snowy setting which made me think snowflakes which made me think the snowflakes from the Seasonal  Layers Thinlits Dies.  This die set is so versatile because it has images for every season.  It contains three different snowflakes which I die cut from Whisper White, Silver Foil paper and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  I used Smoky Slate for the background layer and embossed the Whisper White layer with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder then added the 1/8″ silver ribbon in a swirl pattern using glue dots.  I then adhered the snowflakes to create my snowy scene.  The sentiment ‘Tis the Season to Sparkle’ is from the Season to Sparkle stamp set which I die cut from retired Scallop Oval Punch.

For more sparkle I added rhinestones and silver sequins.Stampin Up Seasonal Layers Snowflake Christmas cardGo to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see more inspiration from the design team.

A Season to Sparkle starts with Halloween

I just had to create another Halloween card inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiment color challenge of Fresh Fig, Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Twist.  I used the chandelier and other elements from the Season to Sparkle stamp set to create my card.

I sponged Fresh Fig, Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Twist on glossy white card stock.  The chandelier is die cut from basic black.  The jeweled swag, bird and spider were stamped with Momento Black and die cut from whisper white.  The jewels were colored with an Aqua painter then colored with Clear Wink of Stella .  To make it all sparkle I added basic rhinestones and topped with a Lemon Twist bow.

Open if you Dare the Graveyard Gate

OOOH! OOOH! SPOOKY is what I was going for with the card I created with the Graveyard Gate bundle.  Inspiration for my card came from the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I sponged Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry for the sky then sponged Smoky Slate on the bottom to create the graveyard.  I then stamped the headstones and bats in Momento Black.  I used an adhesive sheet to die cut the gate so I could easily adhere the gate to the front of the card.

For the sentiment I die cut a circle with the 1-3/8″ punch and sponged it with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie then stamped the sentiment with Momento Black.  For extra sparkle I colored around the sentiment with Clear Wink of Stella.  The lock and key I die cut from silver foil.  Now… try to open the graveyard gate if you dare.

Thanks a Bunch with a Wood Crate of Flowers

The card I created this week was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the Wood Crate Framelit  to create the wood crate. What’s really cool about this framelits is you can make a 3d wood crate project or you can use it to create card, like I did for my card. I also used the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars Framelits to create the flowers and foliage.  For the background I used the Work of Art to create the Pool Party  background and for sparkle I colored the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella and added Basic Rhinestones.

A Pocketful of Sunshine with Daisy Delight

I finally got the opportunity to create with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set and framelits.  I love how you can create a pocket and decorate it.  I die cut the card from Night of Navy, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The card I created was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of So Saffron, Always Artichoke and Night of Navy.  I’m also loving the Daisy Delight bundle.  I love how the punch coordinates with the daisy stamp to create these beautiful daisies.  I used them to decorate the pocket.  I also added the leaves from the Rose Wonder and Flourish Thinlets.

The centers of the flowers were heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  For more sparkle I colored the petals of the daisies with clear Wink of Stella.  The background is glossy  paper sponged with Always Artichoke.
