You’re Absolutely Amazing

The card I created this week is CASED from a card featured on page 98 of the new Annual Catalog using the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge colors of – Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Bumblebee.  Not only does the Annual Catalog feature wonderful products but also a variety of projects showing how the stamps, dies and embellishments may be used.  

For the background I embossed a Whisper White layer with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder then sponged Bumblebee ink.  I also die cut two strips of Whisper White with the scallop die.  I stamped the outline of the flower full strength then stamped stamped off for stamping the inside of the flower.  The sentiment is also from the stamp set and stamped in Flirty Flamingo and die cut with coordinating die. 

The leaves I stamped  in Momento black then die cut them with the die.  The one leaf on the left is stamped then fussy cut.  For embellishments I used the Gold Gilded Gems and Gold Fine Art ribbon.

In the Wild Birthday

I love cats! Big wild cats down to domestic cats I love them. So when I saw the Stampin’ Up! In the Wild Suite I just had to get it. My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge and the In the Wild Suite.

Stampin Up Triangle Fold card created with June 2021 Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin June 2021 Alternative Triangle Fold Card

I was inspired this week by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge to create a triangle fold card with the June 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit. The kit coordinates with the Expressions in Ink bundle which is on my wish list. However, not having the bundle nor the DSP inspired me to create my version of the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Garden Wishes Sympathy Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments they have a color challenge of Calypso Coral, Bumblebee and Just Jade.  I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend and decided to use the colors in the challenge and use a technique I had not used in awhile.  I created the watercolor background by coloring an acrylic block with Bumblebee and Just Jade markers then spritzing the block with water and stamping it onto Shimmery White card stock.  I then dried the ink with my heat tool.  I then stamped the flowers from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set and sentiment with Stazon Jet Black.
