A Season to Sparkle starts with Halloween

I just had to create another Halloween card inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiment color challenge of Fresh Fig, Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Twist.  I used the chandelier and other elements from the Season to Sparkle stamp set to create my card.

I sponged Fresh Fig, Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Twist on glossy white card stock.  The chandelier is die cut from basic black.  The jeweled swag, bird and spider were stamped with Momento Black and die cut from whisper white.  The jewels were colored with an Aqua painter then colored with Clear Wink of Stella .  To make it all sparkle I added basic rhinestones and topped with a Lemon Twist bow.

A Pocketful of Sunshine with Daisy Delight

I finally got the opportunity to create with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set and framelits.  I love how you can create a pocket and decorate it.  I die cut the card from Night of Navy, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The card I created was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of So Saffron, Always Artichoke and Night of Navy.  I’m also loving the Daisy Delight bundle.  I love how the punch coordinates with the daisy stamp to create these beautiful daisies.  I used them to decorate the pocket.  I also added the leaves from the Rose Wonder and Flourish Thinlets.

The centers of the flowers were heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  For more sparkle I colored the petals of the daisies with clear Wink of Stella.  The background is glossy  paper sponged with Always Artichoke.

So Many Shells for Sympathy Card

I just received the So Many Shells stamp set.  It has the two step stamps which adds texture and dimension to the shell images.  I used the colors of Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  For the background I used watercolor paper and used an Aqua Painter to color with Pool Party.   I stamped the shells on Whisper White and fussy cut each shell.  The sentiments is from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set and stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black.

I used gold metallic thread behind the shells for texture and used Clear Wink of Stella on the Shells to add sparkle and shimmer.  This was an easy card to make.Stampin Up So Many Shells Sympathy cardJoin Hand Stamped Sentiments for this fun color challenge and see more inspiration from the rest of the design team.

‘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.
