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.

A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way

Inspiration for my card this week comes from Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry and Old Olive.  Although, the color Blackberry Bliss is retired you’re welcome to use a color similar like Elegant Eggplant.  I used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set to stamp all the background elements.  I also used the Bitty Butterfly punch to die cut the butterfly.  For sparkle I added basic rhinestones, gold sequins and used Gold Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush on the sunburst, butterfly and Crushed Curry dots.

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.

Tap, Tap, Tap, Just a Note to say Hi

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge and was inspired to create a card with the Tap, Tap, Tap stamp set.  To add a bit of vintage flavor I heat embossed the typewriter and the sentiment with gold then fussy cut them.  I used the Typeset Specialty Designer paper for the background layer to the elements.  I always enjoy creating with this stamp set.

Flower Patch Awesomeness

The next challenge for Hand Stamped Sentiments is a very fun sketch challenge.  I used the Flower Patch bundle to create this card.  Using this set to stamp the flowers then die cutting them with the coordinating framelits was so quick and easy.  Lately I’ve been so in love with using Crumb Cake or Kraft card bases then using a pop of color with images and elements.  I stamped the greeting in Versamark then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  Do you want to know how I got those perfect notches on my banner?  I used the Banner Triple punch.  The Banner Triple Punch gives you triple the banner options in one punch. You can make banners in three widths–1″, 1-1/2″, and 2″–in any length. Just slide the paper in, punch, and get perfectly notched banners (or gift tags, bookmarks, belly bands) every time.  You’re going to love this punch!  The little butterfly was stamped in Cajun Craze with a butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set.  I then lightly used an Aqua pen to bring in a bit of color to the wings with Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight.

A Kinda Eclectic card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we’re having a color splash challenge with the colors of Hello Honey, Night of Navy and Marina Mist.  My card was inspired by one in the Stampn’Up! Idea 2014-2015 Idea Catalog on page 69.

The card base is Whisper White and I rounded one of the corners of the card by tracing a half circle on the corner then cutting the round with scissors.  I stamped the flourish with Hello Honey from the Flowering Flourishes stamp set then adhered a Tea Lace Paper Doily.  I stamped two flowers from the Beautiful Bunch stamp set.  The larger flower I stamped with Momento black ink and colored it with Night of Navy and Marina Mist markers.  The smaller flower is stamped with Marina Mist.  The sentiment and butterfly are stamped from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  I die cut the flowers with the Fun Flower and Petite Petals punch.  I used the Elegant Butterfly punch to die cut the butterfly.  The sentiment was die cut with the Apothecary Accents franelit.  The inside of the card is layered with a Hello Honey striped paper from the Lullaby DSP.
