You’re the Best said with Sheltering Trees

My card is based on the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge – Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green.  I hadn’t used the Sheltering Tree stamp set since last December and wanted to use it after I saw these colors in the foliage in my back yard.  The Japanese maple trees in our backyard have the yellow and green color which you can kind of see on the upper right side of the photo below,  The Blueberry Bushel is inspired by the Blue Plumbago flowers.  I love these colors together and invite you to create a project for this color challenge.  I first stamped the trunks with Early Espresso then stamped the foliage using my Stamparatus.

The sentiment is from the Label Me Pretty stamp set and stamped in Blueberry Bushel and sponged with Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green and punched with the 1-1/4″ circle punch.  I sponged some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon with Daffodil Delight and used some linen twine for underneath the sentiment.

Mosaic Madness and Thinking of You

The new stamp set Mosaic Madness is one of my favorites.  It has so many wonderful shapes and so versatile.  The card I created for Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge is for a color challenge – Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush.  Such yummy colors!  They just scream SUMMER!  The colors of Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush are from the new In-Colors collection for 2013-2015.

This was an easy card to make.  I CASED it from the May/June Stampin’ Success.  I just changed the colors and added more bling.

Emboss Resist Mixed Bunch Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a technique challenge for you – emboss resist.  This technique is lots of fun!  If you haven’t done it before, there’s a great tutorial and video on SCS.  For my card this week I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom punch.  I stamped the flower images then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added color with sponge daubers and embellished with basic rhinestones colored with Sharpies.  The sentiment is stamped with Versamark and Melon Mambo then heat embossed with clear.  I made a triple loop bow using the 1/2″ Daffodil Delight seam binding.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Splash Challenge

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge with the bright colors of Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Tempting Turquoise.  I love these happy colors.  When I look at them they make me smile.  I CASED this card from Jolene Slack.  The card was featured in the May 2010 Success magazine.  All the layering adds dimension to this card.  I especially like the Scallop Square Clear Bigz Die and Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die.  They are perfect for so many projects.  I stamped the Whisper White layer with the All A Flutter butterfly stamp in Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo.  The Melon Mambo butterfly is behind a Vellum frame.  I love the soft look.  I used retired Trio Flower punch for the flowers and embellished with half pearls and White Satin ribbon.  I used the Friends sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set and punched it out with the Jewelry Tag punch.
