Awesomely Artistic and a Work of Art

My inspiration for my card this week comes from this week’s HSS Inspiration Challenge and from page 118 of the Stampin’ Up’s! Catalog and Idea book.  I love I can peruse through the catalog and see something different every time!  I used the NEW In-Color Mint Macaron with touches of gold and Bermuda Bay sequins, with black.   The photos of the lake and water made me think of the dragonflies I see in may backyard.

I love the Work of Art Stamp and Gorgeous  Grunge stamp sets because you can create swashes or splatters of color that look like you water colored or painted on ink.   These I used for the background then stamped the dragonfly from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set and heat embossed with gold as well as the ‘you’ in the sentiment.  To make the rest of the sentiment stand out I used some Washi tape.

Birthday Basics -Celebrate with Fringe

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an Inspiration challenge.  The photo is filled with so many great images just in time for celebrating the Fourth of July.

The card I created is for dear friend celebrating her birthday this month.  I wanted to make it festive and fun and what better way than with fringe.  I created the fringe strips with Stampin’ Up’s! fringe scissors.  I cut 2 inch strips in Watermelon Wonder, Very Vanilla and Island Indigo.  The ‘Happy Birthday’ greeting is stamped with Versamark and Watermelon Wonder and for sparkle I heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice.  To see the sparkle click on the image to magnify.  The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri set and embellished with basic rhinestones colored with Sharpies.  I tied Metallic Baker’s Twine and stamped the flower in Island Indigo from retired Beautiful Bunch stamp set and embellished with 2015-2017 Watermelon Wonder In Color Blossom accent.
