Falling for Leaves

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.   I love the beautiful colors of green turning into gold, orange and red.  This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.  The images inspired me to use the Falling for Leaves bundle to create this card.

I stamped the Crumb Cake layer with the green foliage leaf then added the Very Vanilla layer which I stamped with the Artisan Textures using Versamark then heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.  I die cut the leaves then added sparkle with clear Wink of Stella and basic rhinestones. The ‘Thankful’ greeting was also embossed with Copper then die cut with the Pretty Label punch then embellished with 1/4″ copper trim.

Have a Magical Birthday

LOVE the Magical Mermaid stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This is one of the new stamp sets in the annual catalog.  I CASED my card from the catalog and used the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape and Night of Navy to create my card.

I sponged Night of Navy on Very Vanilla to create the water then stamped foliage from the Magical Mermaid and Sea of Textures stamp set.  The mermaid is stamped with Momento Black then colored with watercolor pencils.  The coral and starfish are die cut from the Under the Sea Framelits.  I used Clear Wink of Stella on the mermaid and the water to give it a magical shimmery quality.  The greeting I die cut using retired Decorative Label punch. The sand is embellished with pearls and retired Tutti Frutti adhesive sequins.

Still Night Owl Sending Warm Wishes

I love owls so I was super excited to see the Still Night bundle in the new Stampin’ Up  holiday catalog.  The bundle includes a stamp set and coordinating thinlits dies.  The card I created is also for the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.

With this bundle you can create Halloween or Christmas cards.  For my card I created a Christmas card.  I used the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder for the background.  I die cut the owl and branch with Whisper White and Early Espresso.  I used the Early Espresso die cut to create a shadow behind the white.  The leaves were die cut from Garden Green card stock.  The sentiment was stamped with Garden Green ink then die cut with the oval from the set.  To add to the snow background I colored the background with Clear Wink of Stella.  I included a close up photo with different light so you could see the Clear Wink of Stella.

Wild For You

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the inspiration challenge is WILD!  The images bring to mind an African safari.  So I dusted off one of my favorite stamp sets which is retired In the Wild.  I love the images because they look like drawings you’d find pained on a cave wall but with more detail.

I stamped the cheetah image with Versamark on Very Vanilla then heat embossed with copper embossing powder.  The circle layers I die cut from the Circle framelits then used shredder scissors to cut the edges.  I also put Burlap threads I frayed from the Burlap ribbon along with Copper Metallic Thread.  The background I dried embossed with the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.  I also used retired 1-14″ Burlap ribbon and layered the lace die cut from the Petals & More Thinlits.  For the sentiment I used retired Alphabet Rotary stamp then heat embossed with copper embossing powder.

You’re the Best said with Sheltering Trees

My card is based on the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge – Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green.  I hadn’t used the Sheltering Tree stamp set since last December and wanted to use it after I saw these colors in the foliage in my back yard.  The Japanese maple trees in our backyard have the yellow and green color which you can kind of see on the upper right side of the photo below,  The Blueberry Bushel is inspired by the Blue Plumbago flowers.  I love these colors together and invite you to create a project for this color challenge.  I first stamped the trunks with Early Espresso then stamped the foliage using my Stamparatus.

The sentiment is from the Label Me Pretty stamp set and stamped in Blueberry Bushel and sponged with Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green and punched with the 1-1/4″ circle punch.  I sponged some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon with Daffodil Delight and used some linen twine for underneath the sentiment.

Abstract Impressions create a field of flowers

This week I was inspired to CASE a card from a very talented demonstrator, Katrina Duffell.  Her simple card of colorful flowers inspired me along with the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I water colored Balmy Blue for the background with a bit of Coastal Cabana.  I started stamping the flowers light to dark and like Katrina added flowers as needed.  The flowers were stamped with the circle flowers from the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  I’m loving this set because of the many types of flowers included.  I created the stems with Old Olive watercolor pencils then used an aqua painter and added the linen thread.

Beautiful Climbing Orchid for friends

I created two cards inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  The colors of Bermuda Bay and Flirty Flamingo are very prominent in the inspiration photo which remind me of the 50’s and the Miami Vice series of the 80’s. When I first saw the inspiration photo I had tons of ideas but settled on using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder Framelits.  I had read about a sponging technique on Glossy White paper in one of our Success Magazines and decided to make the card as featured in two color ways.

I created the these two cards by first, sponging ink onto the Glossy Cardstock. I then filled a Stampin’ Spritzer with water and lightly sprayed  on to my hand.  Then flicked my hand to create droplets on the inked paper.  With the Orchid Builder Framelits dies which makes it easy to die cut the orchids.
