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.

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.

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!

Lovely as a Tree for Christmas

My card is based on this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments which is an inspiration challenge. The challenge inspired me to use the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the Woodlands Embossing folder to create a white Christmas card.

After embossing the white layer with the Woodland Embossing folder I colored the tree trunks with Gold Wink of Stella Glitter pen.  On another layer I stamped the trees with Chocolate Chip ink then traced the branches of the trees with the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter pen to make them sparkle then embellished with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon.

The inside of the card I stamped with silver Encore ink with stamps from the Christmas Pines set.
