The Beauty of Friendship

My card this week was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiment Inspiration challenge and helpful neighbors. My husband and I are so blessed to have such wonderful neighbors. This past weekend our neighbor helped with replacing our patio fan. It really needed to be replaced. We were prepared to call a handy man to replace it but they were here a couple of weeks ago and offered to help in replacing it. I ordered the fan and our neighbor came over to take down the old fan and install the new one. The Inspiration Challenge at HSS has such wonderful outdoor images. The trees inspired me to use my Beauty of Friendship stamp set and Beautiful Trees dies. It’s a one layer card I CASED from Anna Helman. I stamped the trees on to Sahara Sand with Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce. The strip of foliage I stamped with the different greens and Crushed Curry and combined with an embossed strip of Crumb Cake. I used the Timber 3D Embossing folder. Then sentiment I stamped with Shaded Spruce on Basic White then die cut with the rectangle from the Beautiful Trees dies and layered with a layer die cut with the Elegant Tag punch. I embellished the tag with linen thread and Parakeet Party Metallic Woven ribbon.

Easter Bunny in Bloom

This week I was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point and Tina Wardell’s card. She used the masking technique to create a cute bunny card. I used the same technique and Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge colors and CASED her card.

I stamped on Shimmer White card stock the flower image first with Memento Black ink then masked it and stamped the bunny image with Smoky Slate ink. The flowers and butterfly were colored with Stampin’ Up Bermuda Bay light and dark alcohol markers. I used Stampin’ Write markers Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point since these colors are not available in alcohol markers. I used a Stampin’ Up Blender Pen with Coastal Cabana to softly color around the bunny and flower images. The sentiment I stamped in Memento Black then added clear rhinestones for some shine. I really enjoyed coloring the images.

Stamping the butterflies on Shimmer Paper gives the butterflies some sparkle. The Night of Navy layer was embossed with the Greenery Embossing Folder.

Inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge and by Cindy Bee’s daffodil faux center step card. I had not had the opportunity to ink up the Daffodil Daydream stamp and die bundle and was inspired by Cindy Bee’s card. I used the dies to create a daffodil and cut-out the daffodils to create an Easter card. I also used the Daffodil paper from Sale-a-bration.

Easter Friends say Happy Easter

I was inspired to create this card from Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge – Mint Macaron, So Saffron and Fresh Freesia. These colors are perfect for spring and for Easter. I recently purchased the Stampin’ Up Easter Friends and combined this stamp set with the color challenge to create an Easter card.

I used the three largest scalloped dies from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I used Fresh Freesia for the largest scalloped die then used DSP from the Hand-Penned DSP collection. The sentiment is from the Easter Friends stamp set and stamped in Mint Macaron on Basic White card stock. The cute ducky is stamped in Gray Granite and sponged with So Saffron. The legs, feet and beak were colored with a Blender Pen in So Saffron and colored darker than the body which I used a sponge dauber. To embellish I used Fresh Freesia color jewels from the 2021-2021 In Color Jewels. The ribbon is 3/8″ Open Weave Fresh Freesia. The inside of the card is stamped with Fresh Freesia sentiment and chick image in Gray Granite and sponged with So Saffron. Sentiment and images are from the Easter Friends Stampin’ Up stamp set.

Take the color challenge and see what you can create with these beautiful spring colors. Go to HHS and be inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments design team.

Forever Blossoms on Tailor Made Tag

My card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge. This sketch has a tag layer which is so fun! I created my card with colors Highland Heather, Cinnamon Cider and Pale Papaya. First I started with a Basic White card base followed by, Cinnamon Cider then DSP from the Hand-Penned collection. I die cut the largest tag from the Tailor Made Tags dies then stamped the blossoms with Highland Heather. I stamped another blossoms image on Basic White with Memento Black then colored with Highland Heather light and dark and light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Pens. I die cut branches from brushed gold foil with the Sprigs punch. I also used dies to die cut foliage from the Sunflower dies. I used metallic butterflies and colored Basic Rhinestones with Highland Heather for the center of the flowers. The ribbon is from Basketweave & Metallic ribbbon combo pack. I didn’t put a sentiments since this will be a card I can use for any occasion.

Here is the sketch I used from Hand Stamped Sentiments for my card. Let’s see what you can create with this sketch.

I CASED her card and used Pool Party and birds as my inspiration from Hand Stamped Sentiments. The background layer was embossed with the Textured Textile Embossing Folder. The next layer I die cut DSP from the Friendly Hello bundle with the largest rectangle in the Scalloped Contours Die. The next layer is cut from Brushed Gold Foil.

Flowering Tulips

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink and Pumpkin Orange. These colors made me think of tulips so I used the Flowering Tulips bundle to create this card. I also CASED my card from Stephanie Kauffman. It was fun to make the tulips for this card.

After die cutting the tulip flowers I left the die on the cut flowers and sponged color on them then put them together.

I followed Stephanie’s instructions for making the trellis which was made with a square die. Here are the pictures she posted on her FB post on how she made the trellis. What I did to create the trellis was to measure the square die from the retired stitched shapes then I drew the trellis using Illustrator. You can download the PDF .
