Just a a Note with Petals and More

I just received the Petal Palette bundle.  It’s one of those bundles you don’t realize have so many great elements until you really look at it.  This is a great bundle because you can create many different types of cards.   The greetings are perfect for thank you, wedding, graduation or just because.  The greeting I ended up using is from the Wood Words bundle then die cut with one of the dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

My card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Soft Sky, Lemon Twist and Flirty Flamingo.  I love this color combo!

The images lend themselves to being colored with markers, pencils or water-colored.  I colored the flowers and leaves on my card with a blender pen and ink pads.  The larger leaf foliage  and die cut banners were also die cut with dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

I used a die from the retired Labels Collection, stamped with retired texture stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with retired Encore gold ink, for the layer behind the flowers and foliage.  It was the perfect element to spotlight the flowers and greeting.  The Soft Sky background was embossed with the Simple Stripes Embossing folder.  For added sparkle I finished the card with basic rhinestones.

Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments to be inspired by the design team.  So many beautiful cards!

Say it with a Fruit Basket

Say ‘You are the sweetest’ with a fruit basket.  That’s what I say.  My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I had not stamped with the Fruit Basket stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  This stamp set may be purchased as a bundle with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack to receive .  There are 4 punch shapes that coordinate with this stamp set.  I used the strawberry shape to die cut the strawberries.  For the bowl I stamped it in Momento Black first on the die cut circle.  I then stamped another bowl and fussy cut it and adhered it over the stamped image.

Here is the bundle I used to create my card.

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.
