Hearts & Kisses

January is almost gone and February is almost here!  The next holiday is Valentine’s day!  This is a wonderful holiday because it’s a day to celebrate our love for family and friends.  Valentine’s day, the Hearts & Kisses bundle and the new Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge inspired me to create this card.

The New Hearts & Kisses bundle includes a super cute Kiss stamp set and coordinating punch to die cut the lips and heart.  The card stock colors I used are Real Red, Petal Pink and Whisper White.  I used the Ornate Layers dies to create the Whisper White scrolled frame.  The hearts behind the lips were die cut using the Heart Punch Pack.  I stamped the small hearts in Real Red with the hearts stamp from the Hearts & Kisses set.  The Petal Pink heart was also stamped from this set and die cut with the Kiss punch.  The large heart I embellished with Polka Dot tulle ribbon and the small hearts I embellished with basic clear rhinestones.

Quite Curvy Winter Card

Inspired by the first challenge of 2021 from Hand Stamped Sentiments I decided to use the Quite Curvy bundle and Curvy Christmas stamp set.  The card was very easy to make using the dies and stamps.  I used Seaside Spray for the card base and Night of Navy for the curvy edges and embossed with Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  The foliage and snowflakes are stamped with Seaside Spray and the bow and sentiment stamped in Night of Navy.  The bow I colored with a blender pen and Seaside Spray ink.  I added basic rhinestones to the snowflakes to make them sparkle.

A Poinsettia Place Christmas

I have to finish up my Christmas cards and the mad dash is on to send them out this weekend.  One of the cards I created is inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Misty Moonlight.

I created this card using the Poinsettia Petals Bundle.  Love this bundle.  The bundle includes dies that also emboss.  I die cut the poinsettias from Whisper White, embossed and sponged the petals with Cherry Cobbler.  The centers are beaded pearls which is part of the suite.  I also stamped the leaves an berries on Whisper White and  die cut using the bundle.  I used the Misty Moonlight ribbon behind the poinsettia.  The silver sprigs I die cut with the Sprig punch out silver foil.  The card base is Misty Moonlight and the Old Olive layer is DSP from the Poinsettia Place DSP, the White Vellum paper is the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper.  The paper is flocked and so pretty.  The sentiment from the Poinsettia Place stamp set I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

See what other beautiful projects the design team created with this color challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Misty Moonlight.

A Toile Christmas

Thanksgiving is in a couple of days and it’s going to be a small celebration with just my sister, my husband and me.  But we’re grateful we’re healthy and together.  This weekend I’m in Christmas card making mode and one of the cards I’m going to duplicate is the card I created based on this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the Toile Christmas stamp set and Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I also used the Woodland embossing folder and the Toile Tidings Designer Series paper.  The green tag behind the cardinal I die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.  The ribbon is 3/8″ Real Red Sheer ribbon. The cardinal is stamped with Real Red ink.  Difficult to see but I also colored the cardinal with Clear Wink of Stella.  The sprig and greeting I stamped with Garden Green.

I also used the Sprig punch to die cut gold foil sprigs and red basic rhinestones to embellish the berries.

A Poinsettia Petals Merry Christmas

My card for this challenge was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge and the beautiful Poinsettia Petals bundle.  The card was designed by friend and fellow stamper Minnie Cieslak.  She created this card using the Poinsettia bundle, Evergreen Forest 3d Embossing folder and the Stitched Seasons.  The suite also contains the beautiful pearl and rhinestone centers for the Poinsettias.  The greeting is heat embossed in Silver.  The foliage and frame are die cut from Silver foil.  The inside is also stamped with images from this stamp set.

Gather Together Fall card

Fall is finally here!  The weather is cool Halloween is around the corner and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it.  Which along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge inspired my card.  The challenge colors are Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee and Night of Navy.  I stamped two 1 inch strips of Night of Navy with images from the Gather Together stamp set then heat embossed with gold.  These I adhered to the Blackberry Bliss card base.  I stamped the Very Vanilla layer then adhered between the Night of Navy strips.  The large leaf images I stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with gold then die cut them.  The smaller leafs I die cut then stacked the flowers.  These I stacked on the left then added sprigs die cut with the Sprig punch.  I finished the card with a linen thread bow and clear rhinestones.

Gather Together Around Beautiful Autumn

Autumn is here and was inspired to create this card with the Beautiful Autumn and Gather Together bundles from the holiday mini catalog.  I used the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper with a Cajun Craze card base to create a pocket card with tag.  The leaves I die cut from Gold Foil, Brushed Metallic cardstock, Mint Macaron and Cajun Craze.  On the tag the pumpkins and and texture were stamped with images from the Gather Together bundle.  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch for the top of the tag then used the ribbons from the Basket Weave and Metallic combo pack.  The inside of the card I stamped with the sentiments and leaves from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set.

My card was also inspired by Hand Stamped sentiments Inspiration Challenge.  There are so many wonderful images.  I was inspired by the pumpkins.  I hope you’re inspired to join Hand Stamped Sentiments and share your card.

Merry Christmas with a Flight of Fancy

I was so excited to create with the Flight of Fancy of stamp set from the Stampin’ Up current holiday mini catalog.  It features images for three different holidays – Christmas, Halloween and Valentines.  I’m so loving these super cute images of an angel, witch and cherub.  I created this Christmas card with color inspiration of Mint Macaron, Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake, from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used Whisper White for the card base then used Crumb Cake embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  The Mint Macaron I die cut using the second to largest rectangle die.  I stamped the angel image with Momento Black on Whisper White then die cut using the second to largest of the Stitched Nested Labels die.  I colored the image with SU blender pens with Mint Macaron, Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake ink pads.  After letting the image dry I used a small brush to paint with Champagne Mist ink on the hair, tunic, snowflakes and roofs to add shimmer.  I stamped the greeting with Cinnamon Cider and Versamark then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I like how it made the color a bit metallic.  The Mint Macaron ribbon is from the holiday mini catalog, Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon combo pack and used the 1/4″ Cinnamon Cider twill ribbon.  For extra sparkle I added basic rhinestones.

A Poppy Moments Greeting

When I create a card inspiration comes from many sources.  For this week’s card I was inspired by the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge. I flipped the sketch and found a card in the catalog on page 178 as inspiration to create my Poppy Moments card.

I started with a Purple Posy card base then embossed Whisper White card stock with the Subtle 3D Embossing folder.  I love the texture this folder creates especially on Whisper White card stock because it makes the paper look like watercolor paper.  Using the Poppy Moments die set I die cut the poppy in Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  I sponged Daffodil Delight ink on the white part of the poppy.  The centers I also die cut from Basic Black card stock, I also die cut two of the buds from Whisper White then sponged with Daffodil Delight and also die cut one in Daffodil Delight.  The leaves I die cut from Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green.  The butterfly I stamped in Momento Black from the Butterfly Gala stamp set then die cut with the Butterfly Duet punch then colored with Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

The banner strips I cut from Gray Granite and Basic Gray card stock then snipped the ends of the Basic Gray one.  I sponged the banners, poppy centers and buds with Champagne Mist Shimmer paint for sparkle.  I also die cut Silver foil foliage using the Sprig punch.  I use this punch often to add these sprigs with other leaves.  I used tear and tape adhesive for the banners.  Dimensionals and glue dots to adhere leaves and poppies.  I also added basic rhinestones for more sparkle.   This card came together quickly.

Here is the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch.  Check out the link and see what the other designers have created.  I hope it inspires you to join us.

Gather Together Fall Thank You card

With fall just around the corner I was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge and the The Gather Together bundle featured in the mini holiday catalog, a returning favorite.  Some of the dies in the set die cut and emboss which I used for the leaves.  This set was so much to use.  I can see why it is a returning fave.

The Cajun Craze layer was die cut using the Stitched Rectangle then I inked the Pinewood Planks 3D folder with Champagne Mist Shimmer paint before running it through my die cutting machine.  The shimmer paint added a soft shimmer which added to the metallic accents. I also die cut the dsp from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designing Series Paper collection with the Stitched So Sweetly die.  The white leaf and the pumpkins I stamped on Very Vanilla and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The center leaf I die cut embossed from gold foil paper.  The sentiment is stamped on Early Espresso, die cut using the Stitched Rectangle and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Embellishments are Mint Macaron Basket Weave ribbon, Champagne foil and Champagne rhinestones.
