A Texture Chic Birthday

Love is in the air with Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge. I love the colors and images of their inspiration image. I was inspired by the heart shape. I couldn’t resist creating another card with the Texture Chic Suite. I started with a Basic White card stock and used retired Stampin’ Up Hearts Framilits to create the heart shape card.

I then cut another heart from the Texture Chic Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the front of the card. The rest of the die cuts I used the Chic dies. The waffle background I die cut from the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. I also die cut the flower outline out of the gold foil and die cut the inner part of the flower from Vellum. The other flowers are die cut from Basic White. The greeting is stamped with Early Espresso and die cut using the retired Artisan Label punch I embellished with a small Brushed Brass Butterfly and retired metallic gold edge petal pink ribbon.

The swoosh image is from the Season of Chic and stamped with Petal Pink ink and the greeting is stamped in Early Espresso and is from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set.

Thinking of You with Season of Chic

Happy 2023! Hand Stamped Sentiments is back with a color challenge of Petal Pink, Pool Party and Mango Melody. Love these colors together which inspired me to create a card using the Season of Chic bundle and Distressed Gold Specialty Paper.

This Season of Chic bundle is versatile for making many types of cards for all seasons. Hence the name Season Chic. I created this thinking of you card using the seashells.

I embossed the Pool Party layer with the Time Worn Type Embossing Folder. I then die cut the netting using the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. followed by stamping the shells with Mango Melody and Petal Pink on Basic White then die cutting. I also die cut the shells and leaves from Petal Pink paper. The front shell I die cut two shells the rim in Pool Party and the inside from Basic White then water-colored in Pool Party. The leaves on the right side of the card I die cut from Mango Melody. The small shell on the left side I die cut from the Distressed Gold. The sentiment I heat embossed in gold then embellished and die cut using the Tailor Made Tag dies then embellished with gold Elegant Trim. The rest of the card is embellished with Sold Faceted Gems.

A Wish for a Happy New Year

This week’s sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired my card this week. No stamping just die cutting.

I used the Stitched Stars dies and retired Word Wishes dies. The striped gold paper is retired from the holiday Sale-a-bration. The gold paper is from the Gold & Rose 6″ x 6″ Metallic Specialty Paper pack. I embellished with basic rhinestones and gold cording from the Simply Elegant pack. This card came together very easy!

A Fitting Florets Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Cherry Cobble, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. These colors are perfect for Christmas cards so I decided to create a Christmas card with the Fitting Florets Collection.

There are two stamp sets, dies, paper and embellishments in Fitting Florets collection. I used the Soft Succulent as my card base then used a Cherry Cobbler layer followed by the DSP. I colored the berries on the DSP with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ blends. For the frame and sprigs I die cut using the Bough Punch and Fitting Florests die from the frame out of the Distressed Gold paper. I love how the gold looks antiqued. The greeting I heat embossed with gold then colored the buds on the sprigs with Cherry Cobble blends. For embellishing I added a bow of retired 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and retired Cherry Cobbler rhinestones from the Holiday Basic Jewels.

Hello Harvest Pumpkin Card

This week’s inspiration comes from Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch. When I saw the circle in the sketch I new immediately I wanted to use the pumpkin from the Hello Harvest bundle and the beautiful Rustic Harvest paper.

The card base is black and used the paper with pumpkins and Crushed Curry print for my card. I stamped the pumpkin in Memento Black and colored it with light and dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends then die cut it and also the vines in Mossy Meadow. The sunflowers I also stamped in Memento Black and colored with light and dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends then die cut with sunflower die. The leaves I stamped in Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede and also die cut with leaf die. The little acorn is die cut from Early Espresso and Soft Suede using the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing set. The sentiment is also from the Hello Harvest stamp set. I used Mossy Meadow linen trim and gold from the Simply Elegant Trim.

For the inside of the card I stamped a sunflower and flourish. I also used a strip of the dsp at the bottom.

Happy Birthday! Let’s Celebrate with Sunflowers

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge. The images are perfect for this time of year. For this challenge the Celebrate with Sunflowers and Sunflower dies were perfect.

Since the sunflower is round I decided to make an easel card. I haven’t made one in a while and thought to make a circle easel card.

I stamped the sunflower with Memento Black on Daffodil Delight card stock. I then used Stampin’ Blends Mango Melody light and dark, Daffodil Delight dark, Calypso Coral light, Crumb Cake light and dark to color the sunflower. I used Patty Bennet’s tutorial for coloring the sunflower.

The base of the easel card is Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Basic White. I used the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder to emboss the Basic White and Daffodil Delight. I used the Forever Flourishing dies to die cut the foliage in Shaded Spruce. I used the Sunflower dies to die cut the sunflower and the gold foliage. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and die cut using the Label Me Fancy punch.. I embellished with the Amber Gems. I also used Wink of Stella on the sunflower. This card was a very easy card to make.

A Splendid Day for Sending Hugs

My card is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay.

I used the Stampin’ UP! Splendid Thoughts stamp set and dies to create my card. The background layer I color washed with Bermuda Bay and a water painter. I let dry then stamped with the leaves. I stamped the larger leaves with Black Memento and water colored with Bermuda Bay using a water painter then die cut two of these. I also die cut the open leaf foliage in Rich Razzleberry and Basic White. I also stamped foliage in Calypso Coral then die cut. I arranged the foliage in the middle with glue dots and dimensionals and added gold trim ribbon. I stamped the sentiment then die cut using the stitched half circle from the bundle.

Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and see what the design team has created with these beautiful colors.
