Happy Birthday with Petal Palette

Spring time is here along with birthdays for several of my friends.  So I took the opportunity to be inspired by the inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create a birthday card for one of my friends.  The card I created was very easy and quick to make.  I used the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating Thinlits.  The sentiment was die cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  Love this die!   I also used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. for the background.  The flowers were stamped with Momento Black and colored with Stampin’ Blending Calypso Coral and Old Olive markers.

Celebrate with a Fabulous Flamingo

Flamingos are everywhere!   They’re on pillows, tees, cups, cards and so much more.  I recently purchased the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set and couldn’t wait to use it with the Tropical Chic.  The color challenge of Call me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick at Hand Stamped Sentiments also inspired my birthday flamingo card.

The Call me Clover base I stamped with the leaf stamp from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.  The flamingo I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and black Momento ink then fussy cut with paper snips.  The foliage and flowers were stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set and die cut using the Tropical Thinlit dies.

To add sparkle I used the Wink of Stella on the flowers and the flamingo.  I also used a rhinestone for the eye of the flamingo.  The ribbons are 1/8″ Grosgrain Lovely Lipstick  and 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners set.  The faceted button is retired.  Making this card was fun!

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.

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.
