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.

Congratulations with Butterflies

I created this graduation card with the Bold Butterfly Framelits and Butterflies Thinlits.  I first created the watercolor background on watercolor paper with Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette.  I first wet watercolor paper and used a brush to add spots of the different colors then kept spritzing with water to run the colors.  After drying with the heat tool i die cut the butterflies using the Bold Butterfly Framelits and Butterflies Thinlits dies.

The Whisper White card stock was embossed with the Softly Falling textured embossing folder.  I used a small brush to splatter Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette to the background.

The sentiment was stamped using the Thoughtful Banners and the Duet Banner punch.  I added sparkle to the card with Basic Rhinestones.

Thank you with a Bunch of Blossoms Flower

The thank you card I created is based on Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the colors of Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Emerald Envy.  I created the flower using the new Bunch of Blossoms Bundle.  The petals and leaves were created with 3 step stamping to create shading and depth then die cut with the Blossom Builder Punch.  The sentiment was created with the Thoughtful Banners Bundle.  This bundle comes with a great stamp set with many sentiments and banner images and the Duet Banner punch.  Together you can create banners with many sentiments.

Festive Poinsettia Flower is Joy of the Season

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge inspired my Christmas poinsettia card this week.  My card base is Whisper White.  The diagonal stripe DSP is from the Candy Cane Lane paper assortment.  Love this paper!  The Garden Green layer was embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I used a strip of Gold Satin ribbon.  After stamping the leaves and the petals of the poinsettia I traced the veins with clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.   After assembling the flower I put a gold doily behind it and used dimensionals to adhere to the Garden Green layer.  I embellished the Gold Satin Ribbon with small pearls.  I also used gold sequins and pearls to embellish the card.  I gold embossed the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set on the Whisper White banner.

Jar of Haunts Happy Halloween

I love Halloween!  Growing up my family every year we a had Halloween party to celebrate my father’s birthday.  My father passed away last year but I still make a card for him in his memory.  My card this week is based on the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments and the Great Pumpkin from Charlie Brown.

I  created my own background paper by stamping the eyes with Versamark then heat embossing with white and iridescent embossing powders.  The iridescent embossing powder is retired but I still have some and I use it when I want to add a little sparkle.

The cute jack-0-lantern is stamped with Tangerine Tango on Pumpkin Pie from the Jar of Haunts stamp set which can be ordered from the 2016 Holiday catalog.  The leaf and stalk I stamped with Early Espresso, fussy cut and outlined the leaf and veins with Early Espresso and colored with  Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie.

The jar is stamped on White Shimmer with black ink then die cut using the jar framelit from the Everyday Jars Framelits set.  I adhered the Silver Satin Ribbon then adhered the jar.  The banners Silver and Black Glimmer paper die cut using the Banner Triple punch.  For an extra punch of bling I used basic rhinestones on the eyes and all over the black layer.

Vintagle Leaves Sympathy card

My card this week is inspired by the sketch over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I used the sketch portrait style instead of landscape to create my card.  I’m looking forward to fall and the beautiful colors of the leaves so I  used the Vintage leaves stamp set and framelits.  I made the leaves using Christi Becks video for how to color the leaves and the Acorn Builder Punch for the acorn. I embossed a Very Vanilla layer with the Woodland Textured Embossing folder for a background for the leaves.  I love how my card turned out.

Join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments and show us your take on this sketch.
