Say it with a Fruit Basket

Say ‘You are the sweetest’ with a fruit basket.  That’s what I say.  My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I had not stamped with the Fruit Basket stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  This stamp set may be purchased as a bundle with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack to receive .  There are 4 punch shapes that coordinate with this stamp set.  I used the strawberry shape to die cut the strawberries.  For the bowl I stamped it in Momento Black first on the die cut circle.  I then stamped another bowl and fussy cut it and adhered it over the stamped image.

Here is the bundle I used to create my card.

Create a project using this sketch and go to Hand Stamped Sentiments for more inspiration from their design team.

Beautiful Day Birthday

I was inspired for this week’s challenge to create with the new Beautiful Day stamp set found in the Occasions catalog.  There are two large images of a flower and butterfly perfect to color with markers, watercolors or the new Brusho Crystal Color powders.  This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Real Red, Perfect Plum and Cherry Cobbler.

I stamped the butterfly with Versamark onto Vellum cardstock then heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I then used the stained glass technique to color the butterfly with Stampin’ Write markers then fussy cut.  I again stamped the butterfly with Versamark onto the Whisper White layer then repeated the same marker colors.  I then used mini glue dots to adhere the Vellum butterfly to the center of the butterfly embossed on the Whisper White.  To embelish I used basic rhinestones to and die cut 1/2″ circles in Perfect Plum cardstock.  I also sponged Dazzling Diamonds with Perfect Plum ink and die cut circles with the retired Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and layered over the Perfect Plum circles.

Sliding Barn Door Valentine

January means a new year and a fresh start.  Many of us are heading back to the gym in full force, organizing and tackling DIY projects.  One of the projects my husband and I are working on is purchasing a sliding barn door for our bedroom.  These doors are one of the hottest home design trends.  So I was so excited to  see the Barn Door Bundle (Barn Door Stamp Set and Sliding Door Framelits Dies) in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog!

Watch Stampin’ Up!’s Brandy Barnard in this video demonstration of how to use the Barn Door Bundle.  Purchase the bundle which includes the Barn Door Stamp Set and Sliding Door Framelits Dies and save 10% .

Sliding Barn Door Valentine Card

Stampin Up Barn Door Valentine cardThe cool detail is how the door slides left and right within the die cut grooves.  I created this barn door card front for this Valentine card.

I used #6 washers with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to slide the door.  However,  I’ve seen tutorials using dimes or pennies.

Happy New Year and Dragonfly Dreams!

Happy New Year and all the best for 2018!  I look forward to a fresh new start.  The new year and Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge both inspired me to create my card.  I chose the colors of Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party which to me remind me of spring.

‘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.
