Beautiful You with Flourish Thinlets 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 clf Sellla.  This card came together very easy.  Be inspired by the challenge and show us your projetc.

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.

You are Tea-riffic

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.  The photo of all the citrus inspired me to create this card.

Stampin up A Nice Cuppa card

I embossed the white card base with the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder.  The citrus slices were stamped with the stamp from A Nice Cuppa set then die cut with the 1-1/4″ circle punch.  The cute cup and squiggle was die cut with the Cups and Kettle Framelits from the Have a Cuppa DSP.  I stamped the greeting then die cut with the Artisan Label punch.   This bundle is great and so versatile.

Awesomely Artistic and a Work of Art

My inspiration for my card this week comes from this week’s HSS Inspiration Challenge and from page 118 of the Stampin’ Up’s! Catalog and Idea book.  I love I can peruse through the catalog and see something different every time!  I used the NEW In-Color Mint Macaron with touches of gold and Bermuda Bay sequins, with black.   The photos of the lake and water made me think of the dragonflies I see in may backyard.

I love the Work of Art Stamp and Gorgeous  Grunge stamp sets because you can create swashes or splatters of color that look like you water colored or painted on ink.   These I used for the background then stamped the dragonfly from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set and heat embossed with gold as well as the ‘you’ in the sentiment.  To make the rest of the sentiment stand out I used some Washi tape.
