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.

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.

The background on the larger layer I created using the smoosh ink technique with Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party.  The background on the smaller layer I created with the dot stamp from the Dragonfly Dreams set.  The dragonfly I die cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper then embellished with basic rhinestones.

A Daisy Delight Birthday!

I just received my Stampin’ Up! catalog pre-order!  Included was the Daisy Delight bundle.  The bundle includes the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch.  You too will be able to order this bundle starting June 1st.

I created this birthday card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder and Pool Party.

This card was fast and easy.  I stamped the daisies then punched them out with the daisy punch.  I punched out two daisies to make one full one.

I used the 3/4″ circle punch to punch out the centers out of silver glimmer paper.  The background is embossed with the Softly Falling textured folder.   The greeting banner is stamped on a 1″ strip.  The end is die cut using the Banner Triple punch.  I then added basic rhinestones to give it more sparkle.

It’s a Birthday Fiesta!

I recently purchased the Birthday Fiesta Photopolymer Bundle and so excited to use it for a friends birthday card.  The bundle includes the Birthday Fiesta stamp set and Fiesta Time Framelit dies.  Together you can create fun projects with a fiesta theme.  I created a birthday card using the colors of Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Flirty Flamingo, Emerald Envy and Watermelon Wonder.  These bright colors were perfect for the fiesta card I had in mind.

Party Wishes!

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  I was also inspired by page 4 of the Occasions Catalog to create this birthday card.  I used the Party Wishes Stamp Set and the Party Punch Pack bundle and Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the ‘It’s My Party’ suite.

I sponged the colors of Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo over the embossed portions to create a fun festive background.  I fussy cut the cake and die cut the balloons and candle.

Rose Wonder Birthday Card

My card for this week’s color challenge of Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Crumb Cake was created with new products from the Occasions catalog.  The rose cutout and stamp set are from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set  + Rose Garden Thinlits Dies bundle.  I water colored the rose with Blushing Bride and Rose Red using an Aqua painter brush.  This was a simple card to create.  I CASE’D it from the OnStage conference.  I like how my card turned out.

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.
