Smile with Daisy Lane

Starting today you can order the NEW Daisy Lane stamp set.  This stamp set has a large daisy which coordinates with the Daisy punch. The medium daisy has a new coordinating Medium Daisy Punch.  The set also contains a beautiful foliage stamp , four greetings, including the Smile greeting, and another flower and stem.  I stamped the small butterfly from the Beauty Abounds set and die cut it with the Butterfly Beauty thinlits.  Did you notice the greeting  on the beautiful stitched die cut.  This stitched die cut is also new and from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies which can also be found in the new catalog.  There are nine shapes in different sizes.  My card is also inspired by the inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Happy Birthday with Petal Palette

Spring time is here along with birthdays for several of my friends.  So I took the opportunity to be inspired by the inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create a birthday card for one of my friends.  The card I created was very easy and quick to make.  I used the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating Thinlits.  The sentiment was die cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  Love this die!   I also used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. for the background.  The flowers were stamped with Momento Black and colored with Stampin’ Blending Calypso Coral and Old Olive markers.

Hello Spring and Welcome through my Barn Door!

Spring is right around the corner and I’m busy with spring cleaning.   My hubby is busy tidying up the garden and I’m putting away my winter dishes, hanging up my spring wreath and cleaning up my outdoor furniture.  I love it when we go to daylight savings and I can drive home from work in the daylight.  I know it sounds silly but I so enjoy this time of year.  I feel happy because the plants in our garden are blooming and the weather is getting warmer.  Hello spring!

So it seems fitting that my card is inspired by the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Here’s my card.

I embossed the So Saffron with the Simple Stripes Textured Embossing Folder.  The door, ‘hello hanging frame and flower were  stamped from the Barn Door stamp set and die cut with the Sliding Door Framelits.  The chair is die cut with the Season Layers Thinlits.  I inked up the flamingo from the Pop of Color retired stamp set with Write Markers – Basic Black and Melon Mambo.  I free cut the flower pot from Blushing Bride card stock and stamped the plant from the Flowering Desert stamp set and fussy cut it.

You’re the Cat’s Meow Valentine Card

I have mad love for the Nine Lives stamp set and Cat punch.  The Nine Lives stamp set is from the Stampin’ Up 2019 Occasions catalog and it coordinates with the Cat punch .  I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge and my Bengal cat Rocco to create a Valentine’s Day card.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I stamped the wood background with Blushing Bride then added retired Real Red Mixed ribbon then adhered to the Real Red layer.  The cat was stamped on Crumb Cake then the markings were stamped in Early Espresso.  I used dimensionsl to adhere the cat.  The sentiment is framed and adhered with dimensionals  I finished the card with stamping hearts then embelleshed with basic rhinestones.

Valentine’s day is right around the corner.  This card would be so easy to duplicate quickly and send to family and friends for Valentine’s day.  Who wouldn’t love to get this card in the mail?!

A Winter Woods Christmas Card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is and inspiration challenge.  The Christmas images inspired me to use the Winter Woods stamp set which is in the  Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set coordinates with the In the Woods Framelits dies which makes it easy to die cut the trees.  I wanted to create a simple card I could easily duplicate and came up with this snowy scene.

Stampin Up Winter Woods Christmas cardI die cut the trees from Sparkle Glimmer paper along with the snow drift.  The sentiment is from Timeless Tidings and die cut with the 1-3/4″ circle punch and the red frame was die cut using the 2″ circle punch.  The background is embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Embossing folder.  I finished the card with the 3/8″ Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon and basic rhinestones.

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.
