Hello with Sunflowers

This week my card is inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. When I saw this sketch I instantly thought of using the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and dies. I stamped the sunflower with Cajun Craze on Bumblebee card stock then added white highlights to the petals with a white watercolor pencil. The leaves I stamped with Mossy Meadow on Old Olive card stock. The other foliage I die cut from brushed gold foil. The DSP is from the In Good Taste Design Series Paper. The white frame is die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. The card I then embellished with Brushed Metallic Adhesive dots and Fine Art Ribbon. The ‘Hello’ sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and Old Olive ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder then die cut with the Tasteful Label banner die.

Heartfelt Sympathy with Delicate Dahlias

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge. I used the Delicate Dahlias stamp set earned from the Sale-a-bration catalog. I also used Polished Pink and Basic black card stock. I stamped the Dahlia in Momento Black and colored it with Flirty Flamingo light and dark Stampin’ Blends. The leaves I stamped in Old Olive and colored with light and dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends then fussy cut them. The white layer I die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly die. The sentiment I stamped with Momento Black on Basic White then die cut with the Label Me Fancy Punch. I also die cut another layer with Polished Pink and Basic Black to outline the sentiment. To add some sparkle I used Wink of Stella on the Dahlia and the leaves. This card came together quickly.

In the Wild Birthday

I love cats! Big wild cats down to domestic cats I love them. So when I saw the Stampin’ Up! In the Wild Suite I just had to get it. My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge and the In the Wild Suite. I used tear and tape on the edges of the card then used gilded leafing. The leaves on the left were die cut with the coordinating dies from gold foil. The cat and leaves were also die cut with the coordinating dies. The face of the cat and the sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold. I used the coordinating DSP to die cut the circle from retired Layering Circles. The Evening Evergreen layer was embossed with the Animal Print embossing folder. The inside of the card is also stamped with leaf images from the In the Wild Suite. Love this suite!

Art Gallery Gilded Birthday

I created this card for Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge with products from the Art Gallery suite.  I especially love the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder which I used for the background panel because it embosses the paper to have a painted texture.  I also used the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate to die cut the fancy label with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  I also used the rectangle die to cut out the rectangle panel behind the flower from the Fine Art Floral DSP.  The gold ribbon is also from the suite. The flower I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and Heat and Stick to add the gold leafing.  The stem and leaves were stamped with Mossy Green.

Hearts & Kisses

January is almost gone and February is almost here!  The next holiday is Valentine’s day!  This is a wonderful holiday because it’s a day to celebrate our love for family and friends.  Valentine’s day, the Hearts & Kisses bundle and the new Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge inspired me to create this card.

The New Hearts & Kisses bundle includes a super cute Kiss stamp set and coordinating punch to die cut the lips and heart.  The card stock colors I used are Real Red, Petal Pink and Whisper White.  I used the Ornate Layers dies to create the Whisper White scrolled frame.  The hearts behind the lips were die cut using the Heart Punch Pack.  I stamped the small hearts in Real Red with the hearts stamp from the Hearts & Kisses set.  The Petal Pink heart was also stamped from this set and die cut with the Kiss punch.  The large heart I embellished with Polka Dot tulle ribbon and the small hearts I embellished with basic clear rhinestones.

A Toile Christmas

Thanksgiving is in a couple of days and it’s going to be a small celebration with just my sister, my husband and me.  But we’re grateful we’re healthy and together.  This weekend I’m in Christmas card making mode and one of the cards I’m going to duplicate is the card I created based on this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the Toile Christmas stamp set and Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I also used the Woodland embossing folder and the Toile Tidings Designer Series paper.  The green tag behind the cardinal I die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.  The ribbon is 3/8″ Real Red Sheer ribbon. The cardinal is stamped with Real Red ink.  Difficult to see but I also colored the cardinal with Clear Wink of Stella.  The sprig and greeting I stamped with Garden Green.

I also used the Sprig punch to die cut gold foil sprigs and red basic rhinestones to embellish the berries.

A Poppy Moments Greeting

When I create a card inspiration comes from many sources.  For this week’s card I was inspired by the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge. I flipped the sketch and found a card in the catalog on page 178 as inspiration to create my Poppy Moments card.

I started with a Purple Posy card base then embossed Whisper White card stock with the Subtle 3D Embossing folder.  I love the texture this folder creates especially on Whisper White card stock because it makes the paper look like watercolor paper.  Using the Poppy Moments die set I die cut the poppy in Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  I sponged Daffodil Delight ink on the white part of the poppy.  The centers I also die cut from Basic Black card stock, I also die cut two of the buds from Whisper White then sponged with Daffodil Delight and also die cut one in Daffodil Delight.  The leaves I die cut from Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green.  The butterfly I stamped in Momento Black from the Butterfly Gala stamp set then die cut with the Butterfly Duet punch then colored with Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

The banner strips I cut from Gray Granite and Basic Gray card stock then snipped the ends of the Basic Gray one.  I sponged the banners, poppy centers and buds with Champagne Mist Shimmer paint for sparkle.  I also die cut Silver foil foliage using the Sprig punch.  I use this punch often to add these sprigs with other leaves.  I used tear and tape adhesive for the banners.  Dimensionals and glue dots to adhere leaves and poppies.  I also added basic rhinestones for more sparkle.   This card came together quickly.

Here is the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch.  Check out the link and see what the other designers have created.  I hope it inspires you to join us.

Dressed to Impress card

I was inspired by The Dressed to Impress stamp set and All Dressed up dies  and also use the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create a card with one of my favorite colors, Petal Pink.  Love this shade of soft pink and to add a bit of elegance I used Gold Foil and Champagne rhinestones.  I also used the Petal Pink Organdy Striped ribbon to embellish.  The Petal Pink strip behind the perfume bottle I stamped with the dots then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder as well as the perfume bottle and flowers.  I also used one of the label dies from the Stitched so Sweetly dies.  The stamped image of the perfume bottle and roses then heat embossed with gold embossing powder and colored with an aqua painter using Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz ink.  The white background I embossed with Pinewood Planks embossing folder.
