Hello Spring and Welcome through my Barn Door!

Spring is right around the corner and I’m busy with spring cleaning.   My hubby is busy tidying up the garden and I’m putting away my winter dishes, hanging up my spring wreath and cleaning up my outdoor furniture.  I love it when we go to daylight savings and I can drive home from work in the daylight.  I know it sounds silly but I so enjoy this time of year.  I feel happy because the plants in our garden are blooming and the weather is getting warmer.  Hello spring!

So it seems fitting that my card is inspired by the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Here’s my card.

I embossed the So Saffron with the Simple Stripes Textured Embossing Folder.  The door, ‘hello hanging frame and flower were  stamped from the Barn Door stamp set and die cut with the Sliding Door Framelits.  The chair is die cut with the Season Layers Thinlits.  I inked up the flamingo from the Pop of Color retired stamp set with Write Markers – Basic Black and Melon Mambo.  I free cut the flower pot from Blushing Bride card stock and stamped the plant from the Flowering Desert stamp set and fussy cut it.

Hello there with a Flowering Desert!

For the past few days it’s been rainy and cold.  So to bring a bit of sunshine and lift my spirits I finally inked up my Flowering Desert stamp set.  I love this set!  There are subtleties of color in the images that make the images look like they were water-colored.  The background is stamped on vellum and I used the layering ovals to die cut the Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White ovals.  The saguaro cactus cactus, flowers and yuccas  I stamped and fussy cut.  I used dimensionals to adhere the saguaro cactus and yuccas to the Whisper White oval.

I then took the Pear Pizzazz card stock and stamped the prickly pear images with Lovely Lipstick flowers.  I did stamp off the flowers to get a lighter shade.  The sentiment was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black and die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

Just a a Note with Petals and More

I just received the Petal Palette bundle.  It’s one of those bundles you don’t realize have so many great elements until you really look at it.  This is a great bundle because you can create many different types of cards.   The greetings are perfect for thank you, wedding, graduation or just because.  The greeting I ended up using is from the Wood Words bundle then die cut with one of the dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

My card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Soft Sky, Lemon Twist and Flirty Flamingo.  I love this color combo!

The images lend themselves to being colored with markers, pencils or water-colored.  I colored the flowers and leaves on my card with a blender pen and ink pads.  The larger leaf foliage  and die cut banners were also die cut with dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

I used a die from the retired Labels Collection, stamped with retired texture stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with retired Encore gold ink, for the layer behind the flowers and foliage.  It was the perfect element to spotlight the flowers and greeting.  The Soft Sky background was embossed with the Simple Stripes Embossing folder.  For added sparkle I finished the card with basic rhinestones.

Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments to be inspired by the design team.  So many beautiful cards!

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.

A Pop of Pink

Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge this week inspired my card.  I used the Pop of Pink stamp set which I had not had an opportunity to use.  I also used the Pop of Color DSP and washi tape to create this card.  I love the Melon Mambo, Basic Black  with the Emerald Envy colors.  To coordinate with the DSP I used gold sequins and embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.  I love these colors together they make me happy.

The flamingo and leaves were fussy cut and adhered with dimensionals.  This was a fun card to make.

A Warm Pineapple Hello!

My card this week is inspired by the color challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Dapper Denim at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  My new pineapple stamp had not been inked and these colors inspired me to use it.  I like the stamp because its large size is perfect for stamping on card fronts.
