Black and Pink Corset Card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge inspired me to create these corset cards.  I hadn’t made these in a long time and have dry embossed them.  These versions I decided to heat emboss with two different floral patterns.  Which one do you prefer?  The small or large floral?

I used the large flower stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set to emboss the corset then heat embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder.  For the small floral design I used the small flower from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

For a template for this card click here.

If your interested in purchasing these cards for a hens night, bachelorette or lingerie party please contact me.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Cone Strawberry box and tag

Juicy red strawberries were my inspiration for this week’s fruit challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I love shopping the produce section.  Vibrant colors and fruit displayed to show it’s freshness.  Strawberries are in abundance at my grocery store.  The clear boxes filled with juicy strawberries got me to thinking I could make a strawberry out of the Petal Cone die and to make it more decadent I thought chocolate dipped!  Here’s my creation complete with tag.  See below to download the tutorial for how to make this gift set.

Happy Birthday Cake Slice Box

Yesterday was my hubby’s birthday and I made him a cake slice box.  I put photos of  me and our fur babies inside the box wishing him a happy birthday.  The challenge was in trying to decorate the box in a masculine way.  I was inspired by The Paper Players Color Challenge – Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and Early Espresso.  These colors are so rich together and masculine.  I am also submitting my cake slice to Piece ‘O Cake Paper Craft Planet 3D challenge.

I made my cake box from Early Espresso  card stock then covered with DSP printed from My Digital Studio – Cherry Cobbler polka dot and Not Quite Navy Villa DSP.   I trimmed a 1-1/4″ strip of Early Espresso with the Eyelet Border punch and adhered to the lid.  I also used the retired Take a Spin stamp set , Striped Early Espresso ribbon and Birthday Banner to decorate the top.  I couldn’t resist and added clear rhinestones to the banner and the sides of the box.  I also used an Antique brad for the back.

I also used My Digital Studio to print the photos and then used the 2-3/8 inch circle punch.  I attached the photos with mini glue dots to 1/4″ Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon.  I adhered each end with mini glue dots.

Floral Fest Birdhouse

I recently received the Flower Fest stamp set and I was so excited to get creative with it.  I was looking for inspiration for color and PPA had one of my favorite color combos – Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait.  These colors together are great together for summer projects.  I put together this project for Hand Stamped Sentiments Anything Goes Challenge.  The box and Cardinal are from a template I created then stamped the floral and leaf images with Versamark and matching classic ink as the card stock and heat embossed with iridescent powder for that shimmery look.  I also added clear rhinestones for additional bling.    Hop on over to HSS get inspired and upload your project.
