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.

Life is a Beautiful Ride in a Love Bug

My card is based on this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the stamp set Beautiful Ride to create my card.  I stamped the car image with Momento Black on the heart dsp and fussy cut.  I also stamped the tires on Whisper White and fussy cut then adhered to the car body.  The cute little dog is also from this stamp set.  He looks so cute in the back window.  I stamped the luggage on whisper white and used a blender pen to color and fussy cut then adhered to the heart.

The banners I trimmed with the Triple Banner Punch and stamped the sentiment.  I embellished with Bermuda Bay sequins, rhinestones and ribbon.

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge and was inspired to create a card with the Tap, Tap, Tap stamp set.  To add a bit of vintage flavor I heat embossed the typewriter and the sentiment with gold then fussy cut them.  I used the Typeset Specialty Designer paper for the background layer to the elements.  I always enjoy creating with this stamp set.
