Colorful Butterflies wish Happy Mother’s day

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge. From the images I was inspired by the colors and the butterflies. I used the retiring Beauty Abounds stamp set.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 2021-04-05_colorful_butterflies_happy_mothers_day_card-1.jpg

I used Whisper White card base and layers and the Beauty Abounds speckled stamp for the background. For the smaller butterflies I used the small butterfly dies and the Butterfly duet punch to die cut butterflies and embellished with basic rhinestones. I also die cut foliage from Silver foil paper and adhered with glue dots. The sentiment is from retired Teeny Tiny Wishes and stamped with Momento Black. This was an easy card to put together and can be adapted to birthday, thinking of you or sympathy by changing the colors of the butterflies.

Friendly Flamingo Birthday Card

I survived the winter storm in San Antonio, TX!  The week of February 15th 2021 was not a typical winter week for us.  We normally don’t have snow except for a day and not every winter.  Last week it was so cold we lost electricity and water.  I know for many of you snow days are not unusual.  However, I’m glad it’s behind us.

Longing for tropical weather I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  The colors in the mood board and the colorful flowers inspired me to create this birthday card with the Friendly Flamingo stamp set in the new mini catalog.  The card base is Granny Apple Green followed by Daffodil Delightful.  The Oh So Ombre printed paper is FREE with a $50 purchase right now during Sale-a-bration.  All die cut elements, except the stitched circle are from the Friendly Flamingo Bundle.

Quite Curvy Winter Card

Inspired by the first challenge of 2021 from Hand Stamped Sentiments I decided to use the Quite Curvy bundle and Curvy Christmas stamp set.  The card was very easy to make using the dies and stamps.  I used Seaside Spray for the card base and Night of Navy for the curvy edges and embossed with Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  The foliage and snowflakes are stamped with Seaside Spray and the bow and sentiment stamped in Night of Navy.  The bow I colored with a blender pen and Seaside Spray ink.  I added basic rhinestones to the snowflakes to make them sparkle.

Gather Together Around Beautiful Autumn

Autumn is here and was inspired to create this card with the Beautiful Autumn and Gather Together bundles from the holiday mini catalog.  I used the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper with a Cajun Craze card base to create a pocket card with tag.  The leaves I die cut from Gold Foil, Brushed Metallic cardstock, Mint Macaron and Cajun Craze.  On the tag the pumpkins and and texture were stamped with images from the Gather Together bundle.  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch for the top of the tag then used the ribbons from the Basket Weave and Metallic combo pack.  The inside of the card I stamped with the sentiments and leaves from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set.

My card was also inspired by Hand Stamped sentiments Inspiration Challenge.  There are so many wonderful images.  I was inspired by the pumpkins.  I hope you’re inspired to join Hand Stamped Sentiments and share your card.

Gather Together Fall Thank You card

With fall just around the corner I was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge and the The Gather Together bundle featured in the mini holiday catalog, a returning favorite.  Some of the dies in the set die cut and emboss which I used for the leaves.  This set was so much to use.  I can see why it is a returning fave.

The Cajun Craze layer was die cut using the Stitched Rectangle then I inked the Pinewood Planks 3D folder with Champagne Mist Shimmer paint before running it through my die cutting machine.  The shimmer paint added a soft shimmer which added to the metallic accents. I also die cut the dsp from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designing Series Paper collection with the Stitched So Sweetly die.  The white leaf and the pumpkins I stamped on Very Vanilla and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The center leaf I die cut embossed from gold foil paper.  The sentiment is stamped on Early Espresso, die cut using the Stitched Rectangle and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Embellishments are Mint Macaron Basket Weave ribbon, Champagne foil and Champagne rhinestones.

Thinking of you with Seaside Notions

The card I created today is for a friend I haven’t seen and will probably not see her because of social distancing.  I was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  There were so many beautiful images in the challenge image I was inspired to create with the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I used an aqua painter to create the background with Pretty Peacock ink.  The netting is die cut gold foil from the retired Under Sea dies set.  The seahorse I stamped in Pretty Peacock and fussy cut .  I also used an aqua painter to move the ink to lightly color the seahorse.  The leaf I stamped from the Timeless Tropical and die cut with the In the Tropics die on Just Jade paper with Just Jade ink.  The coral I stamped in Pretty Peacock on Vellum then fussy cut.  I also die cut the sprig from Just Jade.  The sentiment I heat embossed with white embossing powder and used the Braided Burlap Trim with linen thread to embellish.

Aloha with the Timeless Tropical Bundle

The Timeless Tropical Bundle and the Dressed to Impress bundle are two bundles you can currently find in the mini catalog and both I love.  I used the bag die from the All Dressed up dies and the tropical flowers from the Timeless Tropical Bundle.  I started with embossing Soft Suede card stock with the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder, retiring on June 3rd, then die cut the bag.  The buckles for the bag I die cut from gold foil along with leaves.  The flowers I stamped on Whisper White with the StayzOn Saddle brown then colored with Stampin’ Blends – Real Red light and dark, Daffodil Delight light and dark.  Difficult to see in the phone but I also used the Dazzling Diamonds glitter for the centers of the flowers.

Purchase these two bundles now and get an additional 10% discount now through June 2, 2020.  On June 3rd they will be available in the new annual catalog but not available with the additional 10% off.

Happy Birthday To You

I needed to create birthday cards for a dear friend and cousin so I decided to use the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Happy Birthday To You and coordinating die.  Although Sale-a-bration ended on March 31st we still have the mini catalog.  I CASED my card from Anna Helman of Scrapping Stamping & Stuff.  I Stamped the birthday image with Smoky Slate and used a blender pen and ink pads to color the image with Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz.  I also used the Birthday dies to die cut the flowers and the cake with stand.  The paper is from the Parisian Blossoms DSP pack.  So pretty and coordinates so well with the image.  I also die cut the foliage from Silver Glimmer paper and Silver foil then embellished with linen thread and rhinestones.  Difficult to see in the photo but I also colored the flowers and cake with Clear Wink of Stella.

Lovely Day Paper Pumpkin Alternative Birthday Card

I’m loving the Paper Pumpkin kits!  With the Lovely Day February kit you can make three card versions.  I made one of the cards using the Paper Pumpkin instructions and was then inspired by a friend’s card which she made with the tri-fold card but with a twist.  She made the top part of the tri-fold card for holding a gift card but then added a layer at the back for stamping a birthday sentiment and including a personal note.  My card was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
