A Mixed and Beautiful Bunch Birthday Card

My card this week is inspired by the color challenge of Blackberry Bliss, Smokey Slate and Pool Party.  I stamped flowers from the Mixed Bunch and Beautiful Bunch stamp sets.  For the leaves I used the Bird Builder punch to die cut them from Blackberry Bliss and Silver Foil paper.  I also used the punch to die cut the bird.  The background is stamped with Smokey Slate using the Hardwood stamp.  I embellished the center of the flowers with basic rhinestones.  The edges of the card is sponged with Blackberry Bliss.

Happy Mother’s Day Doily card

Don’t forget mom or the one who cared for you like mom.  My mom passed away many years ago and my grandmother and aunt were there for me and my siblings.  My grandmother has also passed away but I still have my dear aunt.  She’s the one who now cares for me like my mom.  So to all moms and those who have given love, care and support like a mom, Happy Mother’s Day and know we appreciate all you do.

This week’s challenge is a color challenge- Summer Starfruit, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Basic Black.  These colors were suggested by Bobbie Trost on our Hand Stamped Sentiments design team.  She did a great job with this color combo.  I would not have thought to put these colors together.  I love them!

Mixed bunch party favor box

Due to some technical difficulties I was not able to post last week when I got home from convention.  But her I am.  It’s been a busy week trying to get caught up.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a challenge for party favor boxes.  I had not used the Fancy Favor box in awhile so with summer in full swing here’s a favor for any summer party.

The box is die cut from Cherry Cobbler, the flower image is from the Mixed Bunch set and is stamped on Whisper White with Daffodil Yellow ink then die cut with the Blossom punch.  The center image is also from the Mixed Bunch set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  For added sparkle I used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details for the center.  The handle was die cut with the Oval Punch then tied with Daffodil Seam binding ribbon.  So simple but this favor would look great on a white plate filled with chocolates.

Inspired again by Stampin’ Up’s Idea Book & Catalog – A Frames Framelit Pouch

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of – Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze.  Gorgeous summer colors!  As I was looking through Stampin’ Up’s new Idea Book & Catalog I saw a treat pouch created with the Label Framelits.

I first cut two framelits using the second to largest framelit.  I then stamped the flourish flower from Mixed Bunch with Versamark and heat embossed it in clear.  Score where shown.

Punch both sides of a 1-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ Calypso Coral strip of cardstock with the Scallop Trim Border punch.  Trim the strips and adhere them to the bottom of the pouch.

Adhere the bottoms of the pouch with sticky tape.

Stamp the flower with Daffodil Delight and punch using the Blossoms punch.  Stamp the center on Baja Breeze card stock with Versamark then clear heat emboss.  Use dimensionals to adhere the Baja Breeze center to the flower.

Stamp the sentiment then die cut using the Bitty Banners Framelits.  Adhere the banner behind the center with a mini glue dot.

Embellish Scallop Border Trim edge with pearls.

Punch a hole through both sides of the pouch with a regular hole punch.  Use an 8″ piece of Daffodil Delight seam binding to tie together both sides.

Happy Birthday Patio Party Bird Card

Hello!  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a challenge to create a project with a bird/peacock.  Great challenge!  My mind just soared with so many ideas!  I’m so excited to share this card because it contains many of the new products found in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  So many beautiful stamp sets and products!  I’m going broke if I order everything on my wish list.  The beautiful DSP paper, Patio Party,  features the new In-Colors and I also used card stock from this same collection.  My card also features a new sentiment from the Bitty Banners set that I die cut using the new Bitty Banners Framelits.  No more trying to cut my own banners by hand.  LOVE IT!!  Another new product is the 1/4″ stitched grosgrain ribbon.  This ribbon comes in many colors and the stitching adds so much.

The flower stamped images are from the set Mixed Bunch and die cut with the Blossom punch.  The bird is die cut using the Bird Builder punch.  This punch is a must have because it die cuts a wing, bird and stem with leaves.  So versatile!  The Patio Party DSP layer is the Top Note shape cut narrow.  Cool shape!

Emboss Resist Mixed Bunch Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a technique challenge for you – emboss resist.  This technique is lots of fun!  If you haven’t done it before, there’s a great tutorial and video on SCS.  For my card this week I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom punch.  I stamped the flower images then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added color with sponge daubers and embellished with basic rhinestones colored with Sharpies.  The sentiment is stamped with Versamark and Melon Mambo then heat embossed with clear.  I made a triple loop bow using the 1/2″ Daffodil Delight seam binding.

A Mother’s Day Flower Fest card

As mentioned in my previous post Stampin’ Up! has released the lists of retiring items so I decided to feature a retiring stamp set for this week’s card.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge – Basic Gray, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Pool Party.   The stamp set I selected for my mother’s day card is Flower Fest.  This stamp set is retiring on May 31st.  So if it’s on your list of must-haves, go to my website to purchase before it’s gone.   I also used the Mixed Bunch stamp set to create a background for the Pink Pirouette layer.  The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen.   For added sparkle I used Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers.  I hope you can see the sparkle when you click on the image to enlarge.

This is a simple card I CASED from the current Idea and Catalog book.  Whenever I need a an idea for a card the Idea and Catalog book is full of projects and ideas.  I can’t wait for the new catalog launching on June 1st.
