Blossom Petals Punch Flower Card

Hello!  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a spring inspiration challenge.  Create any type of papercraft project and let spring inspire you.  My card this week is inspired by an article I saw in the Success magazine.  This magazine is for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and is always helpful with showing new projects and techniques.  I saw these Blossom Petals flowers and I thought perfect!  Using the Blossom Petals Builder Punch, I punched 11 of the larger petal and 8 of the small petal from So Saffron card stock.  I used a pencil to curl in the petals.  I punched a square and filled in with double side sticky tape.  I then arranged the large leaves equally then used double side sticky tape for the center petals and arranged them equally also.  The centers are two flowers punched from the Boho punch.  My accent color is Pool Party.  The background is stamped with stamps from the set Nature Walk.  I colored in the bees and the butterflies with So Saffron and Pool Party markers.  The edges are sponged with Pool Party and Early Espresso.

A Stitched Up Thank You!

We’re in stitches over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  This week’s challenge is to create a project using faux or real stitches.  This challenge was perfect for inspiring me to use my sewing machine.  I needed to create a thank you card for a dear friend so I combined both tasks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         I used a zig zag stitching all around my card and used the Paisley Prints DSP along with one of my favorite stamp sets Nature Walk.  I hope you’re inspired to join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Nature Walk Gift Set

I recently discovered that I had purchased the Botanical Gazette DSP and had not used it so I created this box and cards gift set based on Nancy Gabbert’s project featured in the January Success magazine.  Since the DSP and stamp set will retire at the end of the month I created this project to feature at my next workshop this month as a final push for my customers to buy this beautiful paper and stamp set.  If you’re a SU demonstrator making the box at your next workshop would be a great demo along with showing the completed cards.  I have created the template, instructions for making the box, card photos and recipes with dimensions and instructions for making the cards.  This is not a step-by-step tutorial.  You can purchase these instructions for $2.99.  I hope this inspires you to have ONE more workshop this month for a final push on the occasions mini products and to give a sneak peek of the summer or if you’re a hobby stamper I hope this set inspires you to purchase the paper and stamp set.  The stamp set is one I’ll never part with.  It’s a keeper.
