Beautiful You with Flourish Thinlits die

Creating this card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge  and spring.  Spring is here!  I used the Flourish Thinlits die to create the flowers and buds.  I stamped the Hardwood background stamp on Soft Suede with Early Espresso then stamped the greeting from the ‘Beautiful You’ stamp set.  The greeting is embossed with Pool Party embossing powder to make it pop.  I created the flowers and buds with the Flourish Thinlits.  To adhere the different color buds and flowers I used the Fine-tip glue pen.  It’s perfect for applying a small amount of adhesive.

For extra sparkle I added basic rhinestones and colored the flowers and buds with Clear Wink of Stella.  Super easy card .

Difficult to see but I did color the buds and flowers with Wink of Stella.  This card came together very easy.  Be inspired by the challenge and show us your project.

Falling in Love Suite Sympathy Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an Inspiration Challenge.  Spring is the inspiration and my card was inspired by the colors of spring which are perfect for the sympathy card I had in mind.  I CASED the card from the Occasions Catalog.  The DSP and doily give this card a special touch. The doily is white on one side and ivory on the other.  I used the white side to contrast with the Very Vanilla sentiment layer.   I used paper from the Falling in Love DSP collection.  The bokeh blurred pattern on the paper are soft and pretty.  I layered vellum underneath the lace doily.  The sentiment is stamped with Soft Sky and Crumb Cake and is from the Rose Wonder stamp set.  I die cut it with the Decorative Label punch and framed with Soft Sky.  The card is embellished with basic pearls.  Super easy card to make!

Thank you with a Bunch of Blossoms Flower

The thank you card I created is based on Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the colors of Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Emerald Envy.  I created the flower using the new Bunch of Blossoms Bundle.  The petals and leaves were created with 3 step stamping to create shading and depth then die cut with the Blossom Builder Punch.  The sentiment was created with the Thoughtful Banners Bundle.  This bundle comes with a great stamp set with many sentiments and banner images and the Duet Banner punch.  Together you can create banners with many sentiments.

‘Tis The Season with Christmas Pretty Pines

This week’s card is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Elegant Eggplant, Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz.  I used the Christmas Pines Bundle to create this Christmas card in these unconventional colors.

The card base is Very Vanilla, followed by the gold foil layer.  The Elegant Eggplant layer I stamped with the star background with Encore Gold ink.  The pine leaves were die cut with the thinlit dies and adhered behind the sentiment layer which I heat embossed with gold then  fussy cut and embellished with basic pearls.
