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.

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.

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?!
