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!

With Sympathy with Flourishing Phrases

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I needed a sympathy card and wanted some calming colors.  I selected Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Fresh Fig.  I love how these colors go together so well.  I also used the Flourish thinlits to create the die cut and colored parts of it with the Wink of Stella Gold.  For embellishments I used retired Venetian Crochet Trim and basic rhinestones.  This card came together very easily.

Black and Pink Corset Card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge inspired me to create these corset cards.  I hadn’t made these in a long time and have dry embossed them.  These versions I decided to heat emboss with two different floral patterns.  Which one do you prefer?  The small or large floral?

I used the large flower stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set to emboss the corset then heat embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder.  For the small floral design I used the small flower from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

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.

Beautiful Day Birthday

I was inspired for this week’s challenge to create with the new Beautiful Day stamp set found in the Occasions catalog.  There are two large images of a flower and butterfly perfect to color with markers, watercolors or the new Brusho Crystal Color powders.  This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Real Red, Perfect Plum and Cherry Cobbler.

I stamped the butterfly with Versamark onto Vellum cardstock then heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I then used the stained glass technique to color the butterfly with Stampin’ Write markers then fussy cut.  I again stamped the butterfly with Versamark onto the Whisper White layer then repeated the same marker colors.  I then used mini glue dots to adhere the Vellum butterfly to the center of the butterfly embossed on the Whisper White.  To embelish I used basic rhinestones to and die cut 1/2″ circles in Perfect Plum cardstock.  I also sponged Dazzling Diamonds with Perfect Plum ink and die cut circles with the retired Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and layered over the Perfect Plum circles.

Sliding Barn Door Valentine

January means a new year and a fresh start.  Many of us are heading back to the gym in full force, organizing and tackling DIY projects.  One of the projects my husband and I are working on is purchasing a sliding barn door for our bedroom.  These doors are one of the hottest home design trends.  So I was so excited to  see the Barn Door Bundle (Barn Door Stamp Set and Sliding Door Framelits Dies) in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog!

Watch Stampin’ Up!’s Brandy Barnard in this video demonstration of how to use the Barn Door Bundle.  Purchase the bundle which includes the Barn Door Stamp Set and Sliding Door Framelits Dies and save 10% .

Sliding Barn Door Valentine Card

Stampin Up Barn Door Valentine cardThe cool detail is how the door slides left and right within the die cut grooves.  I created this barn door card front for this Valentine card.

I used #6 washers with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to slide the door.  However,  I’ve seen tutorials using dimes or pennies.
