Inked Embossing Folder Technique

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a technique challenge – Inked Embossing Folder Technique.  I wasn’t sure if I would like it but I tried it and guess what?  I LOVE IT!  If you would like to learn how to do this technique SCS has a tutorial here.

I used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and inked it in Basic Gray.  I love this new folder.  It’s so vintage-looking.  This card came together very fast.  For the flower I punched 6  flowers with the Blossom punch then lightly sprayed with water.  This is to make them easier to fold.  I then stacked the layers then made a hole with my paper piercer then used a brad to keep the flower together.  The butterflies are stamped with Papillion Potpourri then punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch.   The sentiment is from the From my Heart stamp set.  For that extra sparkle I added rhinestones.  Super easy!

Mixed bunch party favor box

Due to some technical difficulties I was not able to post last week when I got home from convention.  But her I am.  It’s been a busy week trying to get caught up.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a challenge for party favor boxes.  I had not used the Fancy Favor box in awhile so with summer in full swing here’s a favor for any summer party.

The box is die cut from Cherry Cobbler, the flower image is from the Mixed Bunch set and is stamped on Whisper White with Daffodil Yellow ink then die cut with the Blossom punch.  The center image is also from the Mixed Bunch set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  For added sparkle I used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details for the center.  The handle was die cut with the Oval Punch then tied with Daffodil Seam binding ribbon.  So simple but this favor would look great on a white plate filled with chocolates.

A Stitched Up Thank You!

We’re in stitches over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  This week’s challenge is to create a project using faux or real stitches.  This challenge was perfect for inspiring me to use my sewing machine.  I needed to create a thank you card for a dear friend so I combined both tasks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         I used a zig zag stitching all around my card and used the Paisley Prints DSP along with one of my favorite stamp sets Nature Walk.  I hope you’re inspired to join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I’m in the PINK!

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fun color splash challenge with PINK!  Create any project with all the shades of pink.

Pinkalicious challenge 62-001

Since pink is such a feminine color I decided to create a teapot shaped card and candle for mother’s day.  The template for the teapot can be found here.   I enjoyed creating this project with the help of My Digital Studio.  I printed the DSP from the Spring Vintage DSP download.  To embellish the teapot I used the Blossom Petal punch and coordinating stamp set.  The butterflies were die cut from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.  Take the challenge and show us your pink-a-licious projects.
