Monochromatic Rocking Gingerbread Christmas Card

This week we have a monochromatic challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  My card was also inspired by the cute gingerbread in the Scentsational Season Bundle.  He’s so cute!  My card is also a rocking card which is so much fun to decorate.  Click here for a tutorial on how to make this card.

I cut a Soft Suede 5″ circle and a 4-1/2″ Very Vanilla  circle with my retired Stampin’ Up! Circle Scissor Plus.  I embossed the Very Vanilla circle with the Perfect Polka Dot folder then folded them in half and glued them together.

Rocking Christmas Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fun challenge – Fancy Fold Cards.   With only few more days left till Christmas I decided to make another Christmas card but with a rocking twist.  I had seen this type of card out in internet land and decided to make a rocking Christmas card.  You can view a tutorial for making this card here.  They’re so easy to create!  I cut an Early Espresso 5″ circle and a 4-1/2″ Soft Suede circle with my Circle Scissor Plus then folded them in half and glued them together.

The Scallop Circle Cherry Cobbler layer is embossed with the Snow Burst embossing folder and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I used the Scallop Circle and Scallop Circle #2 dies to cut the Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle and the Lucky Limeade Scallop Circle.  The Gift image is stamped on watercolor paper with brown StayzOn and colored with ink pads and a blender pen.  I used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut out this layer at 2-3/4″ .  To add some more sparkle I framed it with Champagne Glass glitter.  I added an Old Olive button and stamped ‘Merry Christmas’ in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.

For the back of the card I stamped the bird and ornament image on water color paper then punched with the ornament punch.  I also used ink pads and a blender pen to color.  I stamped snowflakes and heat embossed them in gold along with the sentiment.

Flirty Valentine Corset Card

For this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments ribbon and lace challenge I created this corset template.  The template is sized to fit into a SU medium envelope (5-3/4″ x 4-3/8″).  I traced the corset on Very Vanilla CS then ran it through my Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and sponged it with Riding Hood Red ink.  I used the 5/8″ Victoria crochet trim as lace.  I put a strip of stick tape on the back of the crochet trim and pleated it as I adhered the trim.  I used my Crop-a-dile Big Bite to set the 1/8″ eyelets and used grosgrain ribbon to lace the corset.  The regular hand-held Crop-a-dile will not work because it doesn’t reach.  You can also use a regular eyelet setter kit.  It was a lot fun creating this card.  The possibilities are endless in creating this card.  You can use different embossing folders, different colored card stock, clear rhinestones and different ribbons.

I create these as invitations for hens night, bachelorette or bridal showers.  Got to my Etsy shop to order and request your custom color.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique Challenge #22 and Giveaway!

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge –  fancy fold or shape card.  I’ve been wanting to create a watering can card and this was my opportunity.  The template is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I have included the template link below.  Also this week I am giving away the stamp set Of the Earth.  Leave me a comment and your name will be entered in the drawing.  To see what else you can win go to Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Now on to the project deets. To add dimension to the watering can I cut out an additional spout and sponged the edges of the can and sentiment oval with Soft Suede ink.  I stamped all the flower images on Very Vanilla card stock.  I used glue dots and SNAIL to adhere the flowers and the leaves.  I used the rock and roll method with Garden Green and Olive Green ink to add dimension to the leaves.  I had a lot of fun creating this card.
