Friendly Hello Birthday Card

My card this week was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge and by StampinJo.com‘s card with the Friendly Hello Bundle. I CASED her card and used Pool Party and birds as my inspiration from Hand Stamped Sentiments. The background layer was embossed with the Textured Textile Embossing Folder. The next layer I die cut DSP from the Friendly Hello bundle with the largest rectangle in the Scalloped Contours Die. The next layer is cut from Brushed Gold Foil. The next layer is die cut from the stitched rectangle from the Scalloped Contours Die set. I then stamped the bird and flowers from the Friendly Hello die stamp set and colored with the Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Blend Pens. I then fussy cut it and adhered with dimensionals. I then stamped the splatter stamp from the Friendly Hello set with Memento black. I embellished with retired Daffodil Delight ribbon, Brushed Brass Butterflies and Basic Rhinestones.

The Friendly Hello bundle is FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-bration. Start shopping here.

Feels Like Home Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set

My card this week is inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of Merry Merlot, Petal Pink and Cinnamon Cider. I used the Feels like Home stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. It’s a free stamp set you can earn for free with every $50.

I used a Blender Pen with Merry Merlot, Petal Pink and Cinnamon Cider ink pads. I also framed the image with Cinnamon Cider card stock and embellished with Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon. I also used the retired Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing folder.

Friendly Flamingo Birthday Card

I survived the winter storm in San Antonio, TX!  The week of February 15th 2021 was not a typical winter week for us.  We normally don’t have snow except for a day and not every winter.  Last week it was so cold we lost electricity and water.  I know for many of you snow days are not unusual.  However, I’m glad it’s behind us.

Longing for tropical weather I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  The colors in the mood board and the colorful flowers inspired me to create this birthday card with the Friendly Flamingo stamp set in the new mini catalog.  The card base is Granny Apple Green followed by Daffodil Delightful.  The Oh So Ombre printed paper is FREE with a $50 purchase right now during Sale-a-bration.  All die cut elements, except the stitched circle are from the Friendly Flamingo Bundle.

Pennant Butterfly Dream Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a banner challenge!  How fun!  Banners come in all shapes and sizes.  What inspires you?  Join the bash!  I absolutely love the Everyday Enchantment DSP from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  I also had not used my Edgelits Dies and coordinating stamp and embossing folders so I combined all the elements and came up with this card.  I love the dreamy colors and the butterflies.
