A Botanical Bloom Thank You

My card this week is inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I love the Botanical Blooms stamp set and framelits because it’s so easy to create beautiful blooms with foliage.  I also used the Rose Garden Thinlits for foliage.   The Bermuda Bay banner is embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and creates contrast behind the foliage and flowers.  To create texture I used a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge for the spotted  background and gold sequins.

Watercolor Wings and Bold Butterflies

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder and Blushing Bride.  I just received the Watercolor Wings Photopolymer bundle and was inspired by this color challenge to create beautiful butterflies.  This stamp set makes it so easy to create beautiful watercolor butterflies.

I used a Whisper White card base to feature the butterflies.  I used the three colors to create each butterfly.  One butterfly is stamped at full strength and for the other I stamped off for a light er color.  For sparkle, I added gold foil butterflies die cut with the Bold Buttefly Framelits and Bermuda Bay sequins.  The sentiment is from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  The spots on the background are stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

Monstermaniacs Valentine card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a color challenge and I was so excited to use the Monstermaniacs stamp set given to me by my upline Erin.  This was the first time I used this versatile stamp set.

Since Valentine’s day is coming up I created this card for the occasion. I used a blender pen to color the image of the monster and used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to go over the spots on the monster.  This was a quick and easy card to make.

Truly Grateful

Thanksgiving is almost here and it is not the only time to be thankful.  Everyday is a gift and everyday we should appreciate all that is good in our lives.  Stampin’ Up!’s Truly Grateful stamp set has inspired me to create these cards to say Happy Thanksgiving and Thank you.

The first card I CASE’d from the  Stampin’ Success magazine.  The background is stamped with the help of the Stamp-a-ma-jig then stamped with the Truly Grateful background and embossed with gold embossing powder  The Pumpkin Pie banner is layered with a hand cut arrow shape banner and stamped with the lines stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Tags 4 You set.  All the layers are layered with Early Espresso twine.  Such an easy card!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Thanksgiving Card

For this other card I used the Expressions Thinlits Dies.  To ensure you can remove the ‘thankful’ from the framelit use two sheets of wax paper between the framelit and the cardstock.  I stamped the wood background in crushed curry then stamped the wheat stalks in Versamark and heat embossed with Early Espresso.  To get the very cool ink splatters I used the Gorgeous Grunge set and Early Espresso ink.  I then added Early Espresso candy dots on the top right.  Another easy to make card.
