Happy Tails Wag On

I love dogs and I love the Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails stamp set.  Inspiration for my card comes from the Color Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments of Pretty Peacock, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.

Before I embossed the Soft Suede with the  Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder I inked the folder with Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the dogs with Soft Suede on Whisper White and stamped collars with Cherry Cobbler and Pretty Peacock then die cut the dogs with the Dog Builder Punch. I die cut the heart from Cherry Cobbler then colored with clear Wink of Stella for sparkle. I used the Banner Triple punch on a 1.5″ strip of Pretty Peacock.  The sentiment is stamped with Versamark then heat embossed with White embossing powder.  I colored basic rhinestones with Cherry Cobbler markers then used linen thread to embellish the banner.

Hello Beautiful

I love walking in my garden.  Every time I do I see blooming flowers and butterflies, which along with Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge, inspired me to create this card.  I used the Butterfly Gala stamp set, Butterfly Duet punch and Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies to create this card.  I stamped the butterflies with Black Moment Ink then colored them with the Blendabilities markers Pool Party light and dark and the Daffodil Delight light and dark   The foliage I die cut gold foil paper with the Butterfly Beauty thinlits.

The sentiment is from Butterfly Gala stamp set.  I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The card base is Coastal Cabana followed by Bermuda Bay.  The black layer I embossed with the Dynamic Textured Pinewood Planks.

Just a a Note with Petals and More

I just received the Petal Palette bundle.  It’s one of those bundles you don’t realize have so many great elements until you really look at it.  This is a great bundle because you can create many different types of cards.   The greetings are perfect for thank you, wedding, graduation or just because.  The greeting I ended up using is from the Wood Words bundle then die cut with one of the dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

My card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Soft Sky, Lemon Twist and Flirty Flamingo.  I love this color combo!

The images lend themselves to being colored with markers, pencils or water-colored.  I colored the flowers and leaves on my card with a blender pen and ink pads.  The larger leaf foliage  and die cut banners were also die cut with dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

I used a die from the retired Labels Collection, stamped with retired texture stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with retired Encore gold ink, for the layer behind the flowers and foliage.  It was the perfect element to spotlight the flowers and greeting.  The Soft Sky background was embossed with the Simple Stripes Embossing folder.  For added sparkle I finished the card with basic rhinestones.

Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments to be inspired by the design team.  So many beautiful cards!

A Pocketful of Sunshine with Daisy Delight

I finally got the opportunity to create with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set and framelits.  I love how you can create a pocket and decorate it.  I die cut the card from Night of Navy, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The card I created was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of So Saffron, Always Artichoke and Night of Navy.  I’m also loving the Daisy Delight bundle.  I love how the punch coordinates with the daisy stamp to create these beautiful daisies.  I used them to decorate the pocket.  I also added the leaves from the Rose Wonder and Flourish Thinlets.

The centers of the flowers were heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  For more sparkle I colored the petals of the daisies with clear Wink of Stella.  The background is glossy  paper sponged with Always Artichoke.

Life is a Beautiful Thing with Colorful Seasons

I love creating with the Colorful Seasons Bundle .  The bundle is so versatile especially when paired with the Color Theory Cardstock pack.  The card I created was inspired by Hand  Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  Fall is on it’s way and the images in the challenge inspired me to create a card with the beautiful colors of Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral.

The gradient background is out of the Color Theory Cardstock pack.  I stamped the leaf image all over the gradient background with white StayzOn.  The leaf images are very subtle.  I also stamped the leaves with VersaMark and heat embossed with Copper embossing powder. The leaves were die cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the sentiment  VersaMark on watercolor paper then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and sponged Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral to create a gradient effect.  I also die cut the small leaf on watercolor paper and sponged with Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral to match the gradient effect of the sentiment background.

Daisy Delight Birthday Card

The card I created this week was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge and new product from the Stampin’ Up catalog.  I’m so in love with the Daisy Delight Bundle!  I created this birthday card using the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and the Daisy Delight Bundle.  I stamped the daisies with Daffodil Delight ink on Daffodil Delight card stock.  For the centers I inked with Versamark a strip of Daffodil Delight and heat embossed with retired Early Espresso embossing powder mixed with retired Iridescent Embossing Powder then punched with 1/2″ circle punch.  The leaves were die cut using the retired Little Leaves Sizzlits and leaves from the Flourish and Rose Garden Thinlets.  The sentiment is from the the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set with the end die cut with the Duo Banner Punch.

It’s a birthday fiesta!

I love the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Fiesta bundle!  It’s perfect for this time of year.  Since I live in San Antonio, Fiesta is a big deal.  For 10 days in April, the whole city celebrates with all kinds of events and parades.  Inspired by the city’s festivities and the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments, I created this card for a dear friend who’s birthday is in April.  It’s a fun sketch created by Angela McKay. 

Stampin Up birthday fiesta cardWith the bundle it’s easy to create all the elements on this card.  I love the ‘papel picado’ banner.  So easy to create.  I die cut the banner in Whisper White then stamped each banner with bright colors.  To create the light color background on the banner I stamped off then stamped the detail of the banner with the stamp fully inked.  To make my card shine, I used clear Wink of Stella all over the ‘Tempting Turquoise’ background and added sequins in Bermuda Bay and gold and basic rhinestones.  I love how it turned out.

To see more inspiration for this challenge go to Hand Stamped Sentiments.  You have until noon Monday, May 1st, 2017 to submit your creation.
