Let Your Dreams Soar Above the Clouds

This card is a sneak peek of one of the new Stampin’ Up bundle Above the Clouds photopolymer stamp set and punch.  This bundle is very versatile and perfect for this time of year, graduation.  My card is also inspired by the color challenge of Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I stamped the clouds with Versamark on  Coastal Cabana then embossed with white embossing powder.  The hot air balloons I stamped with Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo then used a blender pen with and ink pads to color.  I then die cut with the Hot Air Balloon punch.  The birds and sentiment I stamped with black Momento ink.  The sentiment I die cut with 1-3/4″ circle punch and the white outer circle with the 2″ circle punch.  Then used white bakers twine and Basic Rhinestones to embellish.

Celebrate with a Fabulous Flamingo

Flamingos are everywhere!   They’re on pillows, tees, cups, cards and so much more.  I recently purchased the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set and couldn’t wait to use it with the Tropical Chic.  The color challenge of Call me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick at Hand Stamped Sentiments also inspired my birthday flamingo card.

The Call me Clover base I stamped with the leaf stamp from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.  The flamingo I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and black Momento ink then fussy cut with paper snips.  The foliage and flowers were stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set and die cut using the Tropical Thinlit dies.

To add sparkle I used the Wink of Stella on the flowers and the flamingo.  I also used a rhinestone for the eye of the flamingo.  The ribbons are 1/8″ Grosgrain Lovely Lipstick  and 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners set.  The faceted button is retired.  Making this card was fun!

A Lasting Lily With Sympathy

Sale-a-bration is here and want to show you one of the beautiful stamp sets you can earn when you spend $100. This stamp set comes with 16 stamps and is a Distinctive stamp.  A Distinctive stamp has deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression.  These type of stamps make beautiful detailed images. 

I created this card with inspiration from Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of  Petal Pink, Fresh Fig and Mossy Green.

The card base I embossed with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  On the Whisper White layer I stamped the lily and stem images using the Stamparatus.  I stamped the sentiment on Petal Pink then die cut with the Pretty Label punch.  I embellished with the 5/8 inch polka dot tulle ribbon and basic rhinestones.

A Fox Falling for Leaves

It’s fall and there is so many beautiful colors in the trees and leaves.  Where I live there is also wildlife life deer, bunnies, squirrels, skunks, raccoons, opossum and foxes.  Almost every night I see deer and a fox in our neighborhood.  Leaves, fox and Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie were my inspiration for my card.

I used the Foxy Friends and Falling for Leaves stamp sets for creating my card.  The coordinating Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies and Fox Builder punch makes it so easy to die cut the leaves and fox.

The Very Vanilla card base was embossed with the Woodland embossing folder..  The leaves were die cut and embellished with retired burlap ribbon.  I also used gold foil for some of the accent leaves and the trim underneath the ribbon which was die cut from the Detailed Leaves Thinleis Dies.

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.

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.
