Punch it up with Stampin’ Up!’s Envelope Punch Board

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color splash challenge with the colors of Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow.  Inspiration for my card came from the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! catalog.  The card is featured on page 130 of the catalog.

I punched up this card with the help of the Envelope punch board and die cut with the Elegant Butterfly Punch then stamped with the Flowering Flourishes.  The flower on the card base was stamped withe flower from Butterfly Basics then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The notches on the side of the card were created with the Envelope punch board.  I then embossed the card with the Wood Grain Textured embossing folder and embellished the card with the Bermuda Bay sequin trim and Linen Thread and a Rhinestone.

Acrylic block Stamped Background Thank You Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.  The image that inspired me most was the sky background.  I used the acrylic block stamped background technique to create the background for my card.  Click here for a tutorial on this technique.

I used ink colors Coastal Cabana, Marina Mist and Wisteria Wonder on water-color paper.  The flourishes are stamped in Night of Navy.  I like how the ink looks on the texture of the water-color paper.  For extra sparkle, I used Dazzling Details all over the background image and flourishes and added rhinestones colored with Coastal Cabana blendable markers.  The ribbon is Lost Lagoon.  It was just the right layer for my “thanks” sentiment.

Here are the inspiration images from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I hope you join us for the challenge.
