Beautiful Day Birthday

I was inspired for this week’s challenge to create with the new Beautiful Day stamp set found in the Occasions catalog.  There are two large images of a flower and butterfly perfect to color with markers, watercolors or the new Brusho Crystal Color powders.  This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Real Red, Perfect Plum and Cherry Cobbler.

I stamped the butterfly with Versamark onto Vellum cardstock then heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I then used the stained glass technique to color the butterfly with Stampin’ Write markers then fussy cut.  I again stamped the butterfly with Versamark onto the Whisper White layer then repeated the same marker colors.  I then used mini glue dots to adhere the Vellum butterfly to the center of the butterfly embossed on the Whisper White.  To embelish I used basic rhinestones to and die cut 1/2″ circles in Perfect Plum cardstock.  I also sponged Dazzling Diamonds with Perfect Plum ink and die cut circles with the retired Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and layered over the Perfect Plum circles.

Vintagle Leaves Sympathy card

My card this week is inspired by the sketch over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I used the sketch portrait style instead of landscape to create my card.  I’m looking forward to fall and the beautiful colors of the leaves so I  used the Vintage leaves stamp set and framelits.  I made the leaves using Christi Becks video for how to color the leaves and the Acorn Builder Punch for the acorn. I embossed a Very Vanilla layer with the Woodland Textured Embossing folder for a background for the leaves.  I love how my card turned out.

Happy New Year

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.   I created the card below inspired from the images below.

To create the background for my card I brayered silver Encore ink onto the Fancy Fan Textured Embossing Folder and embossed the black card stock.  I stamped the champagne glasses with silver Encore ink and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for additional shimmer.  I added basic rhinestones to the glasses for bubbles.  I cut a slit at the fold of the card and threaded the ribbon through.  After embossing the card stock becomes a bit flimsy so I adhered a layer of black card stock on the back side of the card front for stability and to hide the ribbon.  

All in all this card was super easy to make and took not time at all.

Secret garden flowers

The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge this time around.  I created this card with the Secret Garden stamp set and framelits.  I also just received the NEW Big Shot Magnetic Platform which makes cutting with the framelits a breeze! It keeps the framelit in place while cutting.  Click here to see a video showing how this new platform works.  If you like using framelits then this tool is a must-have.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I colored the flowers with a blender pen and ink pads.  Some of the flowers I stamped.  After coloring and stamping the flowers I used the Secret Garden framelits to die cut them.  The background is embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  The butterfly is stamped with a butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.  I die cut it with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  I finished the card with rhinestones.
