Another Abstract Impressions card

As promised, I created another card using the Abstract Impressions bundle.  This time I used the three stamps to create the Daffodil Delight roses.  It’s so easy to stamp these roses.  Just line up the arrows at the top and stamp using the lightest color first using the stamp with least detail as the base then stamp with a darker ink and use the darkest color to stamp with the most detailed stamp.  I inked up my stamp then stamped off twice before stamping, followed by inking the second stamp and stamping off once before stamping.  The last stamp I inked and stamped full strength.  I used the two-stamp method for creating the leaves.  I fussy cut the roses and the leaves and used the dies from the bundle to die cut the detailed floral background the five petaled flowers on the greeting.  The sentiment is from the retired Rose Wonder stamp set then die cut using the Pretty Label punch.  I embellished with a butterfly stamped with the retired Papillon  Potpourri stamp set then colored with markers and die cut using the retired Bitty Butterfly punch.  For extra sparkle I embellished with basic rhinestones and colored the roses, butterfly and leaves with Clear Wink of Stella.

Birthday Basics -Celebrate with Fringe

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an Inspiration challenge.  The photo is filled with so many great images just in time for celebrating the Fourth of July.

The card I created is for dear friend celebrating her birthday this month.  I wanted to make it festive and fun and what better way than with fringe.  I created the fringe strips with Stampin’ Up’s! fringe scissors.  I cut 2 inch strips in Watermelon Wonder, Very Vanilla and Island Indigo.  The ‘Happy Birthday’ greeting is stamped with Versamark and Watermelon Wonder and for sparkle I heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice.  To see the sparkle click on the image to magnify.  The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri set and embellished with basic rhinestones colored with Sharpies.  I tied Metallic Baker’s Twine and stamped the flower in Island Indigo from retired Beautiful Bunch stamp set and embellished with 2015-2017 Watermelon Wonder In Color Blossom accent.

Punch it up with Stampin’ Up!’s Envelope Punch Board

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color splash challenge with the colors of Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow.  Inspiration for my card came from the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! catalog.  The card is featured on page 130 of the catalog.

I punched up this card with the help of the Envelope punch board and die cut with the Elegant Butterfly Punch then stamped with the Flowering Flourishes.  The flower on the card base was stamped withe flower from Butterfly Basics then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The notches on the side of the card were created with the Envelope punch board.  I then embossed the card with the Wood Grain Textured embossing folder and embellished the card with the Bermuda Bay sequin trim and Linen Thread and a Rhinestone.

Thinking of you in 2015-2017 New In Colors

For this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge.  I love the inspiration this sketch provided.  I used some of the new In Colors 2015-2017 to create this ‘Thinking of You’ card.

Stampin up In Colors 2015-2017 I used Natural Ivory for my card base and layered with the Mint Macaron.  For additional interest I used the corner punch to round opposite corners.  I stamped the spotted background with Mint Macaron using a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  I also used the fern stamp from Birthday Basics.  The leaves and the flower were stamped with stamps from the Crazy about You.  The leaves in Cucumber Crush and the flower in Watermelon Wonder are prefect cheerful colors.  The butterfly is stamped with Black Stazon and I used Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron to sponge the wings.  The beautiful Delightful Dijon lace ribbon is also from new 2015-2017 In Colors collection.

Join us with your interpretation of our sketch and see what our talented design team has created.

Birthday Butterfly Basics

The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  I have to catch up on birthday cards and decided to use the Butterfly Basics stamp set and framelits.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set!  I took inspiration from the card on page 26 of the Occasions catalog and the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I used the colors of Calypso Coral, Pistachio Pudding, Hello Honey and Island Indigo.  I used the Butterflies Basics and thinlits die along with Papillion Potpourri stamp set and coordinating punches, Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches.

Stampin Up Birthday Butterfly BasicsI stamped the leaf foliage and flowers followed by the dotted background stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  The honey comb images are from the Butterflies Basics stamp set, as well as the sentiment. Here’s the sketch tht also inspired my card.
