Beauty Abounds in Friendship

Spring has sprung!  The garden is blooming and the foliage is showing off their new shoots.  A beautiful enticement for the butterflies.  It’s a glorious time of year.  For me, everything seems possible and brings a wonderful feeling of renewal and creativity.

My garden inspiration and card.

card made with Stampin up Beauty abounds stamp set and Butterfly Beauty Thinlits dies

 

Hence my inspiration as well as the sketch challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  My card reflects the colors of spring and butterflies.  I used the Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp set and the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies.  I do have to mention my card is also CASED from the 2019 Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog, page 13.  Stampin’ Up! catalogs just don’t show products but they also show wonderful projects featuring their products which also inspire creativity.

Join Hand Stamped Sentiments for this sketch challenge and see what the HSS design team has created for your inspiration.

Hello Spring and Welcome through my Barn Door!

Spring is right around the corner and I’m busy with spring cleaning.   My hubby is busy tidying up the garden and I’m putting away my winter dishes, hanging up my spring wreath and cleaning up my outdoor furniture.  I love it when we go to daylight savings and I can drive home from work in the daylight.  I know it sounds silly but I so enjoy this time of year.  I feel happy because the plants in our garden are blooming and the weather is getting warmer.  Hello spring!

So it seems fitting that my card is inspired by the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Here’s my card.

I embossed the So Saffron with the Simple Stripes Textured Embossing Folder.  The door, ‘hello hanging frame and flower were  stamped from the Barn Door stamp set and die cut with the Sliding Door Framelits.  The chair is die cut with the Season Layers Thinlits.  I inked up the flamingo from the Pop of Color retired stamp set with Write Markers – Basic Black and Melon Mambo.  I free cut the flower pot from Blushing Bride card stock and stamped the plant from the Flowering Desert stamp set and fussy cut it.

So Hoppy Together Thank You card

This is the best Sale-a-bration ever!  Fun stamps, thinlets, and accessories can be earned with every $50 purchase from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  One of the stamp sets you can earn is the So Hoppy Together.  This stamp set features three very cute frogs which I had to get.

The card I created was inspired by the color challenge of Soft Sea Foam, Pool  Party and Highland Heather at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I stamped the leaves and flower using the Tropical Chic Stamp set and used the Tropical Thinlits to die cut the leaves and fussy cut the flower.  The frog and dragonfly I stamped with Momento black, colored with a blender pen and ink pads then fussy cut the frog.  The sentiment is also from the Tropical Chic set.

Hello there with a Flowering Desert!

For the past few days it’s been rainy and cold.  So to bring a bit of sunshine and lift my spirits I finally inked up my Flowering Desert stamp set.  I love this set!  There are subtleties of color in the images that make the images look like they were water-colored.  The background is stamped on vellum and I used the layering ovals to die cut the Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White ovals.  The saguaro cactus cactus, flowers and yuccas  I stamped and fussy cut.  I used dimensionals to adhere the saguaro cactus and yuccas to the Whisper White oval.

I then took the Pear Pizzazz card stock and stamped the prickly pear images with Lovely Lipstick flowers.  I did stamp off the flowers to get a lighter shade.  The sentiment was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black and die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

You’re the Cat’s Meow Valentine Card

I have mad love for the Nine Lives stamp set and Cat punch.  The Nine Lives stamp set is from the Stampin’ Up 2019 Occasions catalog and it coordinates with the Cat punch .  I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge and my Bengal cat Rocco to create a Valentine’s Day card.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I stamped the wood background with Blushing Bride then added retired Real Red Mixed ribbon then adhered to the Real Red layer.  The cat was stamped on Crumb Cake then the markings were stamped in Early Espresso.  I used dimensionsl to adhere the cat.  The sentiment is framed and adhered with dimensionals  I finished the card with stamping hearts then embelleshed with basic rhinestones.

Valentine’s day is right around the corner.  This card would be so easy to duplicate quickly and send to family and friends for Valentine’s day.  Who wouldn’t love to get this card in the mail?!

A Lasting Lily With Sympathy

Sale-a-bration is here and want to show you one of the beautiful stamp sets you can earn when you spend $100. This stamp set comes with 16 stamps and is a Distinctive stamp.  A Distinctive stamp has deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression.  These type of stamps make beautiful detailed images. 

I created this card with inspiration from Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of  Petal Pink, Fresh Fig and Mossy Green.

The card base I embossed with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  On the Whisper White layer I stamped the lily and stem images using the Stamparatus.  I stamped the sentiment on Petal Pink then die cut with the Pretty Label punch.  I embellished with the 5/8 inch polka dot tulle ribbon and basic rhinestones.

Thank you with a Climbing Orchid

Happy New Year!  2018 has flown by and now 2019 is beginning.  I’m hoping to continue to be inspired to create and thankful for another year filled with friends and family.  Which has also inspired me along with the the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create this thank you card.

It’s a simple card with the orchid as a focal point and a greeting of thank you.  I rotated the rectangle layer of the sketch to fit my flower and sentiment.  The Orchid Builder bundle is currently in the Stampin Up 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I stamped the background with the Hardwoods stamp in Momento Black.  The leaves were die cut with the Leaf punch.
