A Howl-o-ween Treat Easel Card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge is a sketch challenge.  The sketch inspired me to create a Halloween easel card with the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set.  I used the colors of Wild Wasabi, Tangelo Twist, Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black.

I used one of those spectacular Spider Web Doilies behind the owl.  The card was easy to create with the stamp set and the Boo to You framelits.

All dressed up and somewhere to go

I’ve been having lots of fun with the All Dressed up Bundle from the new spring mini catalog.  I was so inspired by the color challenge over at PPA.  The colors are Basic Black, Melon Mambo and Basic Gray.  My card is an easel card die cut with the Floral Frames Framelits.  For added dimension I embossed the card’s background with the Fancy Fan Embossing folder.  I also used as a layer a paper doily which is also from the new spring mini catalog.  The dress is die cut with the Dress Up Framelits from the silver glimmer paper which I sponged with Melon Mambo ink.  I embellished with basic rhinestones and ribbon.  To help the sentiment pop it’s stamped in Whisper White then heat embossed with Iridescent powder.  To keep the easel card open I used one Large 8mm Basic rhinestone also featured in the new spring mini.

Wonderfall Leaves Easel Card

I created this easel card with the fabulous Wonderfall stamp set and Autumn Accents die.  The card base was die cut with the Floral Framelits.  The technique I used to color the leaves I learned at convention.  The large leaf was stamped in More Mustard.  I then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze and distressed the leaf by folding it in my hand.  I opened up the leaf then took my Raspberry Ripple ink pad and stamped the leaf with the ink pad.  The folds picked up the ink fabulously!  I used the same technique for the smaller leaf.

I embossed the Very Vanilla background layer for the card with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  For the Very Vanilla bottom layer I stamped the image with the Daydream Medallions then die cut it with the Floral Framelits.  I used the rock’n roll technique for the sentiment.  I always forget about this technique and need to use it more.

Dreamy Owl Easel card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy and Neutral (Crumb Cake, Whisper White or Very Vanilla).  When I saw these colors together a cute dreamy owl came to mind.  As mentioned in my earlier post, my latest addiction are easel cards.  For this card I used the large Circle Scallop die to die cut the base in Marina Mist.  I also used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and punch.  I stamped the Very Vanilla with Marina Mist and Not Quite Navy to create the backgrounds.  I used the Owl Builder, Two Step Bird, Blossom, Punch Pack and Modern Label punches.  For some dreamy shimmer I smooched my card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch.  I went overboard with the pearls but I think it made my card.  The sentiment is stamped with Not Quite Navy and heat embossed with Iridescent embossing powder.

Valentine Easel Shaker Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge – Shaker Cards!  I’ve never made this type of card but since I have the Stampin’ Up! Heart Framelits it was easy to make using two different sizes of heart dies to make the red heart frame for the window.  For the easel base I used the large scallop heart framelit.  The cute stamped image is from the Take it to Heart stamp set featured in the new occasions mini.  Can you guess how I created the background?  I used the Lots of Love Letterpress plate.  The letter press embosses and can also ink at the same time.  For a more subtle background you don’t have to ink it up.  The shaker heart is filled with the scrap small hearts after using the Pinking Hearts border punch.  A bit of mica flakes is also mixed with the small hearts to add  some additional sparkle.
