Thinking of you with Seaside Notions

The card I created today is for a friend I haven’t seen and will probably not see her because of social distancing.  I was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  There were so many beautiful images in the challenge image I was inspired to create with the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I used an aqua painter to create the background with Pretty Peacock ink.  The netting is die cut gold foil from the retired Under Sea dies set.  The seahorse I stamped in Pretty Peacock and fussy cut .  I also used an aqua painter to move the ink to lightly color the seahorse.  The leaf I stamped from the Timeless Tropical and die cut with the In the Tropics die on Just Jade paper with Just Jade ink.  The coral I stamped in Pretty Peacock on Vellum then fussy cut.  I also die cut the sprig from Just Jade.  The sentiment I heat embossed with white embossing powder and used the Braided Burlap Trim with linen thread to embellish.

Beautiful Painted Poppies

This week I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments bundle to create my card. These bundles are available until June 30th as a bundle with 10% off discount.  After June 30th they will be available in the new annual catalog, without the 10% off discount.

I stamped the flowers with Momento Black and colored with Flirty Flamingo and Rich Razzleberry watercolor pencils then blended with a Blender Pen.. I love how easy it is to color with these pencils and blend with the blender pens. I also used the the Peaceful Poppies dsp on the side and background. I also used a strip of Rich Razzleberry and embossed with the Pinewood Planks.  I embellished with the white tulle ribbon and used Wink of Stella on the centers of the flowers.  The leaves I stamped and colored with Old Olive watercolor pencil and blender en from the Painted Poppies bundle.  I also die cut leaves using the Poppy Moments die.

The sentiment is stamped on Pool Party and die cut using the Painted Labels die and embellished with Basic Rhinestones.

Aloha with the Timeless Tropical Bundle

The Timeless Tropical Bundle and the Dressed to Impress bundle are two bundles you can currently find in the mini catalog and both I love.  I used the bag die from the All Dressed up dies and the tropical flowers from the Timeless Tropical Bundle.  I started with embossing Soft Suede card stock with the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder, retiring on June 3rd, then die cut the bag.  The buckles for the bag I die cut from gold foil along with leaves.  The flowers I stamped on Whisper White with the StayzOn Saddle brown then colored with Stampin’ Blends – Real Red light and dark, Daffodil Delight light and dark.  Difficult to see in the phone but I also used the Dazzling Diamonds glitter for the centers of the flowers.

Purchase these two bundles now and get an additional 10% discount now through June 2, 2020.  On June 3rd they will be available in the new annual catalog but not available with the additional 10% off.

Floral Essence Beauty

I hope where ever you live things are getting back to normal.  Here in San Antonio businesses are gradually opening but social distancing and masks are still mandated.  Being at home with loved ones, the sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set and the colors of the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments, Rose Rococo, Seaside Spray and Mint Macaron inspired my card.  Since many of us are still not getting out it’s good to remind loved ones all days are beautiful that begin with them.

The Whisper White layer I embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder.  The Rococo flowers and long leaf foliage I fussy cut.  The Seaside Spray flower I stamped then die cut with the Perennial Flower punch.  I also colored the flower petals and foliage behind it with a blender pen.  The rest of the foliage were die cut using the Sprig and Leaf punch.  The sentiment I heat embossed with silver embossing powder then die cut using the Stitched Shape dies.  I added sparkle with Basic Rhinestones.  I also colored the flowers and green foliage with Wink of Stella.  Save 10% on the the Floral Essence bundle till June 2nd. It will be available in the new catalog without the 10% discount.

Hello my Parisian Beauty!

I love the Parisian Beauty Bundle so much I challenged myself to create cards using this one sheet wonder template.  I made ten cards with one sheet of 12″ x 12″ Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP.  Love this beautiful paper with Champagne foil accents.  I used this sheet of DSP and template to create the cards.

Parisian Beauty You’re the Joy of my Life

The Parisian Beauty bundle is one of the bundles featured in the mini catalog.  I love this bundle because of the images.  So perfect for those of us that love all things French.  The card I created is inspired by the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used the Pool Party as the card base then die cut Petal Pink with the Stitched Rectangle dies then embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing folder.  The Parisian dies were used to die cut the Eiffel Tower which was stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with Shimmery Black then die cut.  The flourish die cut is also die cut from the Parisian dies. The flowers were fussy cut from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty paper. Love this paper with Champagne foil touches.  The sentiment was stamped on Petal Pink Vellum using a sentiment from the Parisian Beauty stamp set.  Sad to say the Parisian bundle and dsp are retiring.

Happy Birthday To You

I needed to create birthday cards for a dear friend and cousin so I decided to use the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Happy Birthday To You and coordinating die.  Although Sale-a-bration ended on March 31st we still have the mini catalog.  I CASED my card from Anna Helman of Scrapping Stamping & Stuff.  I Stamped the birthday image with Smoky Slate and used a blender pen and ink pads to color the image with Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz.  I also used the Birthday dies to die cut the flowers and the cake with stand.  The paper is from the Parisian Blossoms DSP pack.  So pretty and coordinates so well with the image.  I also die cut the foliage from Silver Glimmer paper and Silver foil then embellished with linen thread and rhinestones.  Difficult to see in the photo but I also colored the flowers and cake with Clear Wink of Stella.

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.
