With Sympathy with Flourishing Phrases

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I needed a sympathy card and wanted some calming colors.  I selected Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Fresh Fig.  I love how these colors go together so well.  I also used the Flourish thinlits to create the die cut and colored parts of it with the Wink of Stella Gold.  For embellishments I used retired Venetian Crochet Trim and basic rhinestones.  This card came together very easily.

Say it with a Fruit Basket

Say ‘You are the sweetest’ with a fruit basket.  That’s what I say.  My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I had not stamped with the Fruit Basket stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  This stamp set may be purchased as a bundle with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack to receive .  There are 4 punch shapes that coordinate with this stamp set.  I used the strawberry shape to die cut the strawberries.  For the bowl I stamped it in Momento Black first on the die cut circle.  I then stamped another bowl and fussy cut it and adhered it over the stamped image.

Here is the bundle I used to create my card.

Happy New Year and Dragonfly Dreams!

Happy New Year and all the best for 2018!  I look forward to a fresh new start.  The new year and Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge both inspired me to create my card.  I chose the colors of Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party which to me remind me of spring.

‘Tis the Season to Sparkle with Seasonal Layers

My card this week has been inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments  sketch challenge and all the Christmas movies I’ve been watching on the Hallmark channel.  Every year as part of preparing for the holidays I watch Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel.  All the movies seem to start with a beautiful snowy setting which made me think snowflakes which made me think the snowflakes from the Seasonal  Layers Thinlits Dies.  This die set is so versatile because it has images for every season.  It contains three different snowflakes which I die cut from Whisper White, Silver Foil paper and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  I used Smoky Slate for the background layer and embossed the Whisper White layer with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder then added the 1/8″ silver ribbon in a swirl pattern using glue dots.  I then adhered the snowflakes to create my snowy scene.  The sentiment ‘Tis the Season to Sparkle’ is from the Season to Sparkle stamp set which I die cut from retired Scallop Oval Punch.

For more sparkle I added rhinestones and silver sequins.Stampin Up Seasonal Layers Snowflake Christmas cardGo to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see more inspiration from the design team.

Thanks a Bunch with a Wood Crate of Flowers

The card I created this week was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the Wood Crate Framelit  to create the wood crate. What’s really cool about this framelits is you can make a 3d wood crate project or you can use it to create card, like I did for my card. I also used the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars Framelits to create the flowers and foliage.  For the background I used the Work of Art to create the Pool Party  background and for sparkle I colored the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella and added Basic Rhinestones.

Thank You with Colorful Seasons

I’ve just started to play with the Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Bundle.  I love this bundle because of the versatility and the images for each season.  For my card I was inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Stampin Up Colorful Seasons cardI embossed the brick background using the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I die cut the  Adirondack chair, branch and flowers with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies.  I also added Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and a basic rhinestone to the flower centers.  The grass was created with Old Olive and Lemon Twist.  So much fun to create with this bundle and so many possibilities.

Hello Foxy!

My card this week is inspired by a fox I’ve been seeing in some woods by my house and by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I finally played with the Foxy Friends stamp set and coordinating Fox Builder punch.  The background I embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder then colored the embossed trees with clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  The wood layer strip is from the Wood Textures DSP paper stack then layered with 1/4″ Copper Trim ribbon.

The cute fox I stamped in Cajun Craze and used the Fox Builder punch to die cut the head, body and tail.  The stump and outline banner was stamped in Early Espresso.  The ‘hello’ greeting is from the Eastern Beauty set and stamped in Old Olive and die cut with the Duet Banner punch.
