Beauty of the Season Cardinal Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Real Red, Soft Sky and Garden Green.  I used the Beauty of the Season stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog to create this Christmas card.  I used Momento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the cardinal image.  I then used a blender pen to color the cardinal and the berries.  I used a sponge dauber to lightly sponge a Soft Sky background.  The frames are die cut from the Labels Collection framelits to create a frame for the cardinal image.  The background layer I embossed with an inked up Woodgrain embossing folder .  I inked it up with Soft Suede to emphasize the grain.

Stampin Up Beauty of the Season Christmas cardI added sparkle to the berries and the cardinal with red Dazzling Details.  I also embellished with rhinestones I colored with a red Sharpie.  I used Linen Thread for the bow.

Join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments for this challenge and show us what you can do with these colors.

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.
