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.

I created this card on My Digital Studio for Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.  Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding and Blushing Bride.   My digital card was also inspired by a card on page 111 of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  YES!  It’s a brand new catalog with so many wonderful products.  You can see the catalog by clicking on the image of the catty on the right side of my blog.

Secret garden flowers

The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge this time around.  I created this card with the Secret Garden stamp set and framelits.  I also just received the NEW Big Shot Magnetic Platform which makes cutting with the framelits a breeze! It keeps the framelit in place while cutting.  Click here to see a video showing how this new platform works.  If you like using framelits then this tool is a must-have.

I colored the flowers with a blender pen and ink pads.  Some of the flowers I stamped.  After coloring and stamping the flowers I used the Secret Garden framelits to die cut them.  The background is embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  The butterfly is stamped with a butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.  I die cut it with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  I finished the card with rhinestones.

Wonderful You Easel Card

Wonderful you!  This easel card was created using the Label Framelits.  I also used the Paper Doily to create the delicate background  for the large butterfly.  To add some sparkle and texture I used vanilla smooch and embossed with the Vine street embossing folder.  This card would also make a great mother’s day card.

I used the sketch below from Hand Stamped Sentiments which is the next challenge.

HSS Sketch Challenge #151 – Stampin’ Up! This Too Shall Pass card

The challenge for the next two weeks at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  Spark your creativity by using the sketch below.

The card I created is for a friend who is going through a tough time.  I inked up the fan embossing folder with crumb cake before embossing the Sahara Sand card stock.  For an aged look I also sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  The sentiment is stamped in Raspberry Ripple on Sahara Sand and die cut with the Framelits labels.  I die cut another label from Raspberry Ripple to frame the sentiment.  I die cut the edge of the Sahara Sand layer with the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies and also cut a strip of Raspberry Ripple and Pink Pirouette.  The Designer Series paper is also die cut with Edgelits Dies and also sponged with crumb cake.  The final touches are Very Vanilla seam binding, Embosslits butterflies and pearls.

Oh Hello and Cute Pinwheel cards

Today I held a workshop to show my customers products from the spring mini.  It was so much fun and as usual there are so many wonderful products that are must-haves.  We made two make & take cards and I want to share them with you.  These two cards are inspired by cards I saw  in the Stampin’ SUCCESS.  If I did not have the exact product used to make the card I substituted with a similar one.
