Dare to Dream with Dazzling Diamond Dust

I’m so excited!  Convention is almost here!  I’ll be flying out on Wednesday and meeting up with my upline, downline and some of the HSS design team.  We’re going to have a blast!!  I’m hoping there’s WIFI so I can update you on all the great projects and activities.  This is my first convention and I’m so excited to finally be going.  I look forward to meeting you, my Stampin’ Friends.   So if you see me please say hi.

Now back to the project I want to share with you.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a technique challenge.  I had never done the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique before and it was so fun and easy!  Here’s a link to a  tutorial on SCS.   Click to enlarge the photo so you can see how the flower image shimmers.

Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamond Dust Bordering Romance stamp set

click image to enlarge

I used the flower image from Bordering on Romance stamp set.  I stamped it with black StayzOn on Very Vanilla card stock then used my blender pens and Primrose Petals and Gumball Green ink pads to color the image.  I then embossed it with the oval from the  Set Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die.  I tore around the edges for a distressed look.    I then heat embossed the whole image layer with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The layers are cut from the Label Framelits.  I used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder for the background.  The butterflies are die cut using the Beautiful Wings Stampin’ Up! Embosslits Die.  I used the Loving Thoughts stamp set for my sentiment.  I embellished with 5/8 Inch Crochet Trim Victoria ribbon and Antique brad.  I also used Basic Pearls.

Join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and see more projects from our very talented design team.

Chocolate Easter Bunny Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an Easter Inspiration Challenge.  I love the Chocolate Bunny image from My Digital Studio.  I printed him out in Early Espresso and with my Versamark pen I shaded in some of the areas then heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  I then layered him over the Enchantment DSP and Soft Suede CS.  I used the Edgelit Dies, Adorning Accents embossing folders and coordinating stamp set Bordering on Romance on the Soft Suede and Calypso Coral.  For the bow on my bunny I used white Baker’s Twine that I dyed with Poppy Parade.

I also punched some of the flowers using the Blossom punch, Five Petal Flower punch, Boho punch and Punch Pack.  The flowers are embellished with pearls and butterflies die cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.   I also used the Pinking Hearts border punch underneath the sentiment.

Pennant Butterfly Dream Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a banner challenge!  How fun!  Banners come in all shapes and sizes.  What inspires you?  Join the bash!  I absolutely love the Everyday Enchantment DSP from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  I also had not used my Edgelits Dies and coordinating stamp and embossing folders so I combined all the elements and came up with this card.  I love the dreamy colors and the butterflies.
