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.
