Memorable Tropical Birthday

I have been wanting to stamp with the Tropical Oasis Suite and I finally was able to have the opportunity with the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  Love all the dies and beautiful stamps. I used Cajun Craze for the base and embossed it with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder inked with StayzOn Saddle Brown.  It beautifully embossed the paper to look like it was woven.  The ink gave the embossing some shadowing.  The flowers and leaves were colored with watercolor pencils, blended with a blender pen then die cut.  I used the the Stitched Rectangles dies for the sentiment.  The ribbon is retired 1-1/4″ Juteband ribbon.  For added sparkle I colored the flowers with Wink of Stella.  It’s difficult to see in the photo.

Heartfelt Happy Valentine’s Day

Here’s wishing you a heartfelt happy Valentine’s day!  I created this card with the new stamp set Heartfelt and From my Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Both are from the Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog.  Love the colors of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo.  My inspiration for the card is from the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo doily hearts.  I stamped the ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ heart then die cut with the heart punch then layered it with the stamped doily heart in StayzOn white then die cut with lacy edge heart punch.  The heart button is from the retired Sweet Dreams embellishments and tied with white baker’s twine.  The white scalloped banner at the bottom I die cut using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch then tied with Real Red retired Mixed Satin Ribbon.   The inside of the card I stamped with stamps from the Heartfelt stamp set.

Cheers! It’s your day.

This week my card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used two fun bundles from the Christmas catalog, Cheers to That and Sip, Sip hooray to create a birthday card.  I used the Tufted 3d Embossing folder for the red layer.  I stamped the glass with black Momento ink and the cosmo and straw I stamped in Real Red and die cut.  I used the circle in the Stitched Shapes  to die cut the white circle layer.  The bubbles in the background and ‘Cheers’ are die cut from silver foil using the Sip, Sip Hooray bundle.  I  used Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the rim of the glass and made a bow from Black 5/8″ (1.6 Cm) Glittered Organdy Ribbon for the stem of the glass.

This card came together very quickly using the bundles.  For some added sparkle I used basic rhinestones on the background.

This is a fun sketch and invite you to join the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  You can also see more inspiration from the design team.

Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions

I love seashells and sea life themed stamp sets so I was excited when I saw the Seaside Notions stamp set in the new catalog.  The seahorse image is my favorite.  I stamped the seahorse and sea shells with Momento Black and colored them with watercolor pencils and blender pen.  I used Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight for the seahorse.  The sea shells I colored with Early Espresso, Calypso Coral and Pacific Point watercolor pencils.

The background is embossed with retired Seaside Embossing folder.  I die cut the mesh background from the Under The Sea dies and also die cut a label from the Stitched Nested Labels set.  The greeting is also from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

My card is based on the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  There is more inspiration for this challenge from the design team.

A Bird Ballad: Your friendship means the world to me

I recently found out one of my dear friends whom I craft with often is moving away.  I’m happy for her but sad she;s leaving.  I created this card to give to her and let her know how important her friendship is to me.   I created this card with products from the Bird Ballad suite and inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.

I primarily used the colors of Pool Party and Calypso Coral.  I used the Stampin’ Blends to color the bird, flowers and leaves.  I also used the Birds Ballad dsp.  I die cut the layer with the bird image with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and used the decorative edge die on the bottom of the Pool Party layer.  I used pearls and 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Ribbon to embellish.  I used the retired ornate topper punch to create the tag and rounded the corners with retired corner punch.  The card came together pretty quickly.

Enjoy your day with Magnolia Lane

The new catalog is out and there are so many fabulous suites .  One of them is the Magnolia Suite.  This suite has a stamp set, Designer Series paper, ribbon, and so much more.  I created the card below with DSP , dies and ribbon from the suite.  I stamped the flowers with Momento Black and colored with Calypso Coral light and Old Olive light blender pens.  The new dies have a border around the image so I colored the edges of the flower with a Basic Black marker.  The sentiment is stamped on Kraft paper and die cut with the Pretty Label punch.  To add sparkle I embellished with Basic Rhinestones and ivory ribbon from the suite.

Be inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  See what the other design team members have created with this sketch.

Beauty Abounds in Friendship

Spring has sprung!  The garden is blooming and the foliage is showing off their new shoots.  A beautiful enticement for the butterflies.  It’s a glorious time of year.  For me, everything seems possible and brings a wonderful feeling of renewal and creativity.

My garden inspiration and card.

card made with Stampin up Beauty abounds stamp set and Butterfly Beauty Thinlits dies

 

Hence my inspiration as well as the sketch challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  My card reflects the colors of spring and butterflies.  I used the Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp set and the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies.  I do have to mention my card is also CASED from the 2019 Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog, page 13.  Stampin’ Up! catalogs just don’t show products but they also show wonderful projects featuring their products which also inspire creativity.
