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.

Beautiful Painted Poppies

This week I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments bundle to create my card. These bundles are available until June 30th as a bundle with 10% off discount.  After June 30th they will be available in the new annual catalog, without the 10% off discount.

I stamped the flowers with Momento Black and colored with Flirty Flamingo and Rich Razzleberry watercolor pencils then blended with a Blender Pen.. I love how easy it is to color with these pencils and blend with the blender pens. I also used the the Peaceful Poppies dsp on the side and background. I also used a strip of Rich Razzleberry and embossed with the Pinewood Planks.  I embellished with the white tulle ribbon and used Wink of Stella on the centers of the flowers.  The leaves I stamped and colored with Old Olive watercolor pencil and blender en from the Painted Poppies bundle.  I also die cut leaves using the Poppy Moments die.

The sentiment is stamped on Pool Party and die cut using the Painted Labels die and embellished with Basic Rhinestones.

Parisian Beauty You’re the Joy of my Life

The Parisian Beauty bundle is one of the bundles featured in the mini catalog.  I love this bundle because of the images.  So perfect for those of us that love all things French.  The card I created is inspired by the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used the Pool Party as the card base then die cut Petal Pink with the Stitched Rectangle dies then embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing folder.  The Parisian dies were used to die cut the Eiffel Tower which was stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with Shimmery Black then die cut.  The flourish die cut is also die cut from the Parisian dies. The flowers were fussy cut from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty paper. Love this paper with Champagne foil touches.  The sentiment was stamped on Petal Pink Vellum using a sentiment from the Parisian Beauty stamp set.  Sad to say the Parisian bundle and dsp are retiring.

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.
