Falling for Leaves

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.   I love the beautiful colors of green turning into gold, orange and red.  This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.  The images inspired me to use the Falling for Leaves bundle to create this card.

I stamped the Crumb Cake layer with the green foliage leaf then added the Very Vanilla layer which I stamped with the Artisan Textures using Versamark then heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.  I die cut the leaves then added sparkle with clear Wink of Stella and basic rhinestones. The ‘Thankful’ greeting was also embossed with Copper then die cut with the Pretty Label punch then embellished with 1/4″ copper trim.

Wild For You

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the inspiration challenge is WILD!  The images bring to mind an African safari.  So I dusted off one of my favorite stamp sets which is retired In the Wild.  I love the images because they look like drawings you’d find pained on a cave wall but with more detail.

I stamped the cheetah image with Versamark on Very Vanilla then heat embossed with copper embossing powder.  The circle layers I die cut from the Circle framelits then used shredder scissors to cut the edges.  I also put Burlap threads I frayed from the Burlap ribbon along with Copper Metallic Thread.  The background I dried embossed with the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.  I also used retired 1-14″ Burlap ribbon and layered the lace die cut from the Petals & More Thinlits.  For the sentiment I used retired Alphabet Rotary stamp then heat embossed with copper embossing powder.

Beautiful Climbing Orchid for friends

I created two cards inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  The colors of Bermuda Bay and Flirty Flamingo are very prominent in the inspiration photo which remind me of the 50’s and the Miami Vice series of the 80’s. When I first saw the inspiration photo I had tons of ideas but settled on using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder Framelits.  I had read about a sponging technique on Glossy White paper in one of our Success Magazines and decided to make the card as featured in two color ways.

I created the these two cards by first, sponging ink onto the Glossy Cardstock. I then filled a Stampin’ Spritzer with water and lightly sprayed  on to my hand.  Then flicked my hand to create droplets on the inked paper.  With the Orchid Builder Framelits dies which makes it easy to die cut the orchids.

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.

Occasions Catalog!

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.
