Nature’s Prints in Stampin’ Up In Colors 2022 – 2024

The color challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments is with the 2022 – 2024 Stampin’ Up! In Colors. Use 3 or all 5 In-Colors. It’s up to you. I love all the colors so I decided to use all 5 and use the Nature’s Print bundle.

I started with a Basic White card base. The second layer I embossed with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I then stamped foliage in the different In-Colors. The sentiment I stamped in Sweet Sorbet then die cut with the circle Stitched Shapes dies I also die cut leaf foliage in Starry Night and the tag layer behind the sentiments in Orchid Oasis. I also used a bit of the Parakeet Party metallic ribbon and embellished with Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party an Tahitian Tide 2022-2024 In Color Color Matte Decorative Dots.

Easter Bunny in Bloom

This week I was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point and Tina Wardell’s card. She used the masking technique to create a cute bunny card. I used the same technique and Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge colors and CASED her card.

I stamped on Shimmer White card stock the flower image first with Memento Black ink then masked it and stamped the bunny image with Smoky Slate ink. The flowers and butterfly were colored with Stampin’ Up Bermuda Bay light and dark alcohol markers. I used Stampin’ Write markers Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point since these colors are not available in alcohol markers. I used a Stampin’ Up Blender Pen with Coastal Cabana to softly color around the bunny and flower images. The sentiment I stamped in Memento Black then added clear rhinestones for some shine. I really enjoyed coloring the images.

Easter Friends say Happy Easter

I was inspired to create this card from Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge – Mint Macaron, So Saffron and Fresh Freesia. These colors are perfect for spring and for Easter. I recently purchased the Stampin’ Up Easter Friends and combined this stamp set with the color challenge to create an Easter card.

I used the three largest scalloped dies from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I used Fresh Freesia for the largest scalloped die then used DSP from the Hand-Penned DSP collection. The sentiment is from the Easter Friends stamp set and stamped in Mint Macaron on Basic White card stock. The cute ducky is stamped in Gray Granite and sponged with So Saffron. The legs, feet and beak were colored with a Blender Pen in So Saffron and colored darker than the body which I used a sponge dauber. To embellish I used Fresh Freesia color jewels from the 2021-2021 In Color Jewels. The ribbon is 3/8″ Open Weave Fresh Freesia. The inside of the card is stamped with Fresh Freesia sentiment and chick image in Gray Granite and sponged with So Saffron. Sentiment and images are from the Easter Friends Stampin’ Up stamp set.

Take the color challenge and see what you can create with these beautiful spring colors. Go to HHS and be inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments design team.

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.

Flowering Tulips

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink and Pumpkin Orange. These colors made me think of tulips so I used the Flowering Tulips bundle to create this card. I also CASED my card from Stephanie Kauffman. It was fun to make the tulips for this card.

After die cutting the tulip flowers I left the die on the cut flowers and sponged color on them then put them together.

I followed Stephanie’s instructions for making the trellis which was made with a square die. Here are the pictures she posted on her FB post on how she made the trellis. What I did to create the trellis was to measure the square die from the retired stitched shapes then I drew the trellis using Illustrator. You can download the PDF .

Hello with Sunflowers

This week my card is inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. When I saw this sketch I instantly thought of using the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and dies. I stamped the sunflower with Cajun Craze on Bumblebee card stock then added white highlights to the petals with a white watercolor pencil. The leaves I stamped with Mossy Meadow on Old Olive card stock. The other foliage I die cut from brushed gold foil. The DSP is from the In Good Taste Design Series Paper. The white frame is die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. The card I then embellished with Brushed Metallic Adhesive dots and Fine Art Ribbon. The ‘Hello’ sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and Old Olive ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder then die cut with the Tasteful Label banner die.
