Flowering Tulips

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink and Pumpkin Orange. These colors made me think of tulips so I used the Flowering Tulips bundle to create this card. I also CASED my card from Stephanie Kauffman. It was fun to make the tulips for this card.

After die cutting the tulip flowers I left the die on the cut flowers and sponged color on them then put them together.

I followed Stephanie’s instructions for making the trellis which was made with a square die. Here are the pictures she posted on her FB post on how she made the trellis. What I did to create the trellis was to measure the square die from the retired stitched shapes then I drew the trellis using Illustrator. You can download the PDF .

Thinking of you with Flowering Fields

Hand Stamped Sentiments is back with a new sketch challenge and I created this card with the new Flowering Fields Suite. The card I created was CASED from the January – June 2022 Mini Catalog. Making this card was easy since only the sentiment was stamped and all the other elements were die cut using the dies from this suite.

The card base is Pool Party and the second layer is Basic White sponged with Pool Party. The clouds were heat embossed with White Embossing powder. The windmill and flowers were die cut using the dies from the Flowering Fields Suite. The sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set was die cut using the retired Scalloped Oval punch. The Windowpane Check Ribbon is also from the Flowering Fields Suite.

Here’s the sketch. Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments and see more inspiration.

Another Painted Christmas Suite Card

I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge colors of Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Merry Merlot and I immediately knew I had to use the stamp sets in the Painted Christmas Suite. The card base is Basic White, Painted Christmas DSP, Pine branches die cut from Evening Evergreen. The Basic White label was die cut also from the suite. The other foliage was also die cut using dies from the suite. The sprig punch was used to die cut sprigs from gold Metallic Specialty paper. Gold Foil paper was used for the pine cones and the banner strip behind the label. The banner strip was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold on a banner die cut from Merry Merlot with a die also from the suite. The card was embellished with In-Color jewels

Just for you Sweet Strawberry Valentine

With Valentine’s day so close I was inspired to create another project.  I had saved  a Russell Stover’s heart shaped box with the idea of repurposing it.  So I decided to re-use the box to create a gift for my hubby.  I’m going to put some sweet memories in the form of my favorite pictures in the box and give it to him on Valentine’s day.  I was also inspired by the color challenge of Real Red, Blushing Bride and Bermuda Bay at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I started with embossing a piece of Whisper White paper then embossing with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I then adhered it to the top of the heart box then cut to the lid with paper snips.  I adhered a Vellum Doily followed by gold hoop.  I was inspired by the card on page 44 of the mini catalog to create the 3D strawberries.  I first stamped the strawberries with Real Red on Real Red paper then die cut with the Strawberry Builder Punch. I added the leaves stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on Bermuda Bay paper.  I also added gold springs die cut with the sprig punch,  Other embellishments include Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, retired 3/8″ Sheer Real Red ribbon and basic rhinestones.  The sentiment is stamped on Blushing Bride with Real Red.

Happy Halloween with a Flight of Fancy

I have been wanting to make a Halloween card with the Flight of Fancy stamp set and was inspired by the catalog sample and the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I haven’t made a slim line card in a long time and thought it was the perfect time to make one .  To refresh my memory I had help from Ana Helman.  She has the dimensions and a tutorial on her blog.  I started with Whisper White Heavy card stock base then a layer of Rich Razzleberry. The next Whisper White Heavy card stock layer I sponged with Gorgeous Grape then stamped with the stars, sentiment then heat embossed with gold.  The cute witch image I stamped with Momento Black then used a blender pen with Rich Razzleberry and Petal Pink Blender pen for the face then fussy cut.  I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Blends pen to color the stars and moon on her dress and hat.  I also used the lighter of the black Blender pens to color her cute mouse companion.  For the air stream behind the broom I stamped Vellum card stock with Versamark then heat embossed with gold embossing powder then fussy cut and adhered to the broom.  I used dimensionals to pop her up and make her look like she’s hovering above the clouds.  The clouds I die cut using the retired Up and Away Thinlits dies and the Tree of Life builder punch.  I also cut free hand the first layer of clouds at the bottom of the card.  The clouds I sponged with So Saffron as well as the moon.

Here’s the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Also, checkout the projects from the design team.

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.
