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.

Thinking of you this winter

Living in San Antonio we don’t get very cold winters but sometimes we get snow like in December 2017.  This winter has been very mild and haven’t had freezing temperatures but one day.  However, I can still have a wintry scene if only onmy cards.  This week my snowflake card is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge.

Stampin Up Colorful Seasons Thinking of You Snowflake cardI used the Seasonal Layers dies to die cut the snowflakes.  I embossed the background with the retired Softly Falling embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set Colorful Seasons.  I stamped ‘Thinking of you’ with Versamark then heat embossed with silver  embossing powder.  I also added basic rhinestones for extra sparkle.

A Winter Woods Christmas

My card this weeks is inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  The image that inspired me the most was the Christmas tree.  I decided to use the In the Woods dies and Winter Woods stamp set.  The sentiment is die cut from the Merry Christmas set and stamped with the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.

I stamped the trees from the Winter Woods stamp set then embossed vellum with the Woodland Embossing  Folder.  I also used the embossing paste on the tree for the snow.  For extra sparkle I added basic rhinestones and the retired medium star punch to die cut two stars from silver glimmer paper to top the tree.

Have a Wonderfully Wicked Halloween

I love making Halloween cards!  Especially with the new Wonderfully Wicked Bundle.  The card I created was also inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  The photo is filled with inspiration for a fall or Halloween card.  I die cut the moon from watercolor paper with the 2 inch circle punch then sponged with Saffron Yellow.  I then stamped the bats from the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set. The ‘Wicked’ die cut and spiders was cut using the Wicked dies from retired Black Glimmer paper then the ‘Wicked’shadowed with an orange die cut.  The foliage layer is from the Come Sail Away DSP.  Love this paper.The foliage images look like vintage upholstery fabric.  I then layered with Basic Black and Pumpkin Orange card stock.  The greetings ‘Have a’ and ‘good time!’ are also from this stamp set.

Here is the inspiration image and more can be found at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Good Morning Magnolia

So many stamp sets, so little time.  This is the first time I use the large magnolia flower stamp from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  The flower looks great not colored or with a little color the way I colored it with Flirty Flamingo.  I also used the Clear Wink Stella on the black center and outlines.  For more color, I also used the spatter stamp from the ‘Beauty Abounds’ stamp set behind the flower.  This is a simple card that can be replicated with different layer colors.  I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base and layered with Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White.

This card is also inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.
