Hello there with a Flowering Desert!

For the past few days it’s been rainy and cold.  So to bring a bit of sunshine and lift my spirits I finally inked up my Flowering Desert stamp set.  I love this set!  There are subtleties of color in the images that make the images look like they were water-colored.  The background is stamped on vellum and I used the layering ovals to die cut the Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White ovals.  The saguaro cactus cactus, flowers and yuccas  I stamped and fussy cut.  I used dimensionals to adhere the saguaro cactus and yuccas to the Whisper White oval.

I then took the Pear Pizzazz card stock and stamped the prickly pear images with Lovely Lipstick flowers.  I did stamp off the flowers to get a lighter shade.  The sentiment was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black and die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

You’re the Cat’s Meow Valentine Card

I have mad love for the Nine Lives stamp set and Cat punch.  The Nine Lives stamp set is from the Stampin’ Up 2019 Occasions catalog and it coordinates with the Cat punch .  I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge and my Bengal cat Rocco to create a Valentine’s Day card.

I stamped the wood background with Blushing Bride then added retired Real Red Mixed ribbon then adhered to the Real Red layer.  The cat was stamped on Crumb Cake then the markings were stamped in Early Espresso.  I used dimensionsl to adhere the cat.  The sentiment is framed and adhered with dimensionals  I finished the card with stamping hearts then embelleshed with basic rhinestones.

A Lasting Lily With Sympathy

Sale-a-bration is here and want to show you one of the beautiful stamp sets you can earn when you spend $100. This stamp set comes with 16 stamps and is a Distinctive stamp.  A Distinctive stamp has deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression.  These type of stamps make beautiful detailed images. 

I created this card with inspiration from Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of  Petal Pink, Fresh Fig and Mossy Green.

The card base I embossed with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  On the Whisper White layer I stamped the lily and stem images using the Stamparatus.  I stamped the sentiment on Petal Pink then die cut with the Pretty Label punch.  I embellished with the 5/8 inch polka dot tulle ribbon and basic rhinestones.

Thank you with a Climbing Orchid

Happy New Year!  2018 has flown by and now 2019 is beginning.  I’m hoping to continue to be inspired to create and thankful for another year filled with friends and family.  Which has also inspired me along with the the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create this thank you card.

It’s a simple card with the orchid as a focal point and a greeting of thank you.  I rotated the rectangle layer of the sketch to fit my flower and sentiment.  The Orchid Builder bundle is currently in the Stampin Up 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I stamped the background with the Hardwoods stamp in Momento Black.  The leaves were die cut with the Leaf punch.

A Winter Woods Christmas Card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is and inspiration challenge.  The Christmas images inspired me to use the Winter Woods stamp set which is in the  Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set coordinates with the In the Woods Framelits dies which makes it easy to die cut the trees.  I wanted to create a simple card I could easily duplicate and came up with this snowy scene.

Stampin Up Winter Woods Christmas cardI die cut the trees from Sparkle Glimmer paper along with the snow drift.  The sentiment is from Timeless Tidings and die cut with the 1-3/4″ circle punch and the red frame was die cut using the 2″ circle punch.  The background is embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Embossing folder.  I finished the card with the 3/8″ Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon and basic rhinestones.

A Fox Falling for Leaves

It’s fall and there is so many beautiful colors in the trees and leaves.  Where I live there is also wildlife life deer, bunnies, squirrels, skunks, raccoons, opossum and foxes.  Almost every night I see deer and a fox in our neighborhood.  Leaves, fox and Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie were my inspiration for my card.

I used the Foxy Friends and Falling for Leaves stamp sets for creating my card.  The coordinating Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies and Fox Builder punch makes it so easy to die cut the leaves and fox.

The Very Vanilla card base was embossed with the Woodland embossing folder..  The leaves were die cut and embellished with retired burlap ribbon.  I also used gold foil for some of the accent leaves and the trim underneath the ribbon which was die cut from the Detailed Leaves Thinleis Dies.

Painted Harvest Sunflowers

Fall is a great time of year !  The weather is cooler and the colors are warm.  This time of year and the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to create a card with the Painted Harvest stamp set.

I stamped the sunflowers and foliage at the corner on Very Vanilla and fussy cut them.  I also stamped the leaves around the sunflowers and die cut with the Leaf punch. The sentiment is also from the stamp set and the banner end is die cut with the Banner Triple punch.  The DSP layer is from the Painted Autumn Design retired collection.

For added sparkle I used Clear Wink of Stella on the sunflowers, basic rhinestones on the background and gold metallic thread behind the sunflowers.
