Happy Birthday with some Lemon Zest

I have just now had the opportunity to play with the Lemon Zest bundle and my card was inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and a card create by Crafty Little Peach Stamper.

I stamped the citrus images on watercolor paper then sponged the darker color.  I love the dreamy effect of the water coloring of the citrus images then die cut with the 1-3/8″ circle punch and embellished with Lemon Twist grograin ribbon and Bermuda Bay sequins and rhinestones.

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.

For a template for this card click here.

If your interested in purchasing these cards for a hens night, bachelorette or lingerie party please contact me.

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.

Jingle all the way on a sleigh ride

Inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments and Hallmark Christmas movies I created this card with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle all the Way stamp set.  The Pool Party  layer I embossed with the Gently Falling embossing folder.  I used strips of Whisper White and Vellum to die cut the town, trees and sleigh.

I used Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to accent the hills and roofs.   For the sentiment I used heat stick powder and embellished with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  I also die cut a star from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. To wrap it all up I used 1/8″ silver ribbon and basic rhinestones.

Open if you Dare the Graveyard Gate

OOOH! OOOH! SPOOKY is what I was going for with the card I created with the Graveyard Gate bundle.  Inspiration for my card came from the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I sponged Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry for the sky then sponged Smoky Slate on the bottom to create the graveyard.  I then stamped the headstones and bats in Momento Black.  I used an adhesive sheet to die cut the gate so I could easily adhere the gate to the front of the card.

For the sentiment I die cut a circle with the 1-3/8″ punch and sponged it with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie then stamped the sentiment with Momento Black.  For extra sparkle I colored around the sentiment with Clear Wink of Stella.  The lock and key I die cut from silver foil.  Now… try to open the graveyard gate if you dare.

Life is a Beautiful Thing with Colorful Seasons

I love creating with the Colorful Seasons Bundle .  The bundle is so versatile especially when paired with the Color Theory Cardstock pack.  The card I created was inspired by Hand  Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  Fall is on it’s way and the images in the challenge inspired me to create a card with the beautiful colors of Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral.

The gradient background is out of the Color Theory Cardstock pack.  I stamped the leaf image all over the gradient background with white StayzOn.  The leaf images are very subtle.  I also stamped the leaves with VersaMark and heat embossed with Copper embossing powder. The leaves were die cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the sentiment  VersaMark on watercolor paper then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and sponged Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral to create a gradient effect.  I also die cut the small leaf on watercolor paper and sponged with Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral to match the gradient effect of the sentiment background.

Stampin Up Colorful Seasons cardI finished the card with basic rhinestones to give it some sparkle.  Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments for more inspiration from the design team.

Blossom Builder Punch are Shells on a Beach

My card this week is inspired by Lynda at Understanding Blue.  I have CASED her card to create this sympathy card.  She has a great tutorial on how to create this card.  I wish my sand would not have turned out so dark but I think on my next try I’ll try a lighter brown.  I still like the effect of the watercolor technique.
