Let’s Celebrate your Day Detailed Floral Thinlits dies paper purse and card

My project this week is inspired from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Tip Top Taupe and Bibi Cameron’s paper purse tutorial.  Bibi has a pdf tutorial and video on how to make this beautiful paper purse.   I love how the  Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies create die-cut floral designs and edges for cards, envelopes or boxes.  The purse and card set I created will make a beautiful gift for a friend or mother’s day.

Groovy Love From My Heart

This week’s challenge is a color splash challenge with the colors of Basic Black, Whisper White and Melon Mambo.  These colors inspired me to use my Groovy Love stamp set and coordinating heart punch to create this card.  I also used the new Happy Heart embossing folder from the Occasions catalog on the Whisper White layer along with the Fun Frames embossing folders for the hearts.  After embossing the frame on to Whisper White I cut the frame and sponged with Melon Mambo.

I stamped the polka dot heart and used the Sweetheart punch to die cut it.  I also used the punch to die cut a Melon Mambo and Whisper White hearts.  The edges of the Whisper White heart is sponged with Melon Mambo.  I then adhere the hearts on to the frame with Dimensionals.  I then used 1/8″ Melon Mambo taffeta ribbon to embellish.

Valentine You Send Me Soaring Card

I’m so glad for My Digital Studio!  I’m in the middle of re-organizing my craft room and everything is upside down.  So for this week’s challenge My Digital Studio was a lifesaver.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge – Rose Red, Smoky Slate and Midnight Muse.  Currently I’m into creating Valentine cards with unconventional colors and these were perfect.  I love the digital stamp set Send me Soaring.  Cute kite and cloud images!
