Daisy Delight Birthday Card

The card I created this week was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge and new product from the Stampin’ Up catalog.  I’m so in love with the Daisy Delight Bundle!  I created this birthday card using the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and the Daisy Delight Bundle.  I stamped the daisies with Daffodil Delight ink on Daffodil Delight card stock.  For the centers I inked with Versamark a strip of Daffodil Delight and heat embossed with retired Early Espresso embossing powder mixed with retired Iridescent Embossing Powder then punched with 1/2″ circle punch.  The leaves were die cut using the retired Little Leaves Sizzlits and leaves from the Flourish and Rose Garden Thinlets.  The sentiment is from the the Rose Garden stamp set with the end die cut with the Duo Banner Punch.

A Mixed and Beautiful Bunch Birthday Card

My card this week is inspired by the color challenge of Blackberry Bliss, Smokey Slate and Pool Party.  I stamped flowers from the Mixed Bunch and Beautiful Bunch stamp sets.  For the leaves I used the Bird Builder punch to die cut them from Blackberry Bliss and Silver Foil paper.  I also used the punch to die cut the bird.  The background is stamped with Smokey Slate using the Hardwood stamp.  I embellished the center of the flowers with basic rhinestones.  The edges of the card is sponged with Blackberry Bliss.

Happy Birthday! Another Great Year Another Great Birthday!

For those of you wondering where I’ve been.  I caught a bad cold on Christmas Day that persisted through New Year’s.  I certainly did not want to the start year in bed but I did.  I missed a few days from work and now feel like I’m finally over it.  I missed posting my project for the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments but managed to create these two birthday cards using the stamp set Another Great Year.  I have two friends with birthdays and I wanted to use this very fun stamp set.  I made two cards in two color stories.

Another Great Year 133041 clear $17.95, 13308 wood $23.95 Great price for so many stamps in this set!

This first card I used the color challenge colors at Hand Stamped Sentiments – Wisteria Wonder, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.

Stampin' Up! Another Great Year birthday card

For this card I stamped the “Happy Birthday” first in Strawberry Slush on the Whisper White layer, cleaned the stamp, then inked up the stamp with Versamark and stamped on Strawberry Slush cardstock and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool. Using my paper snips I then cut out the “happy” and “to you” banner pieces so I could layer them over the Strawberry Slush stamped image to give it dimension and a bit of a “split negative” look.  For embellishments I used the Mosaic punch to punch the tiles from Silver Glimmer paper and used a sponge dauber to color with Coastal Cabana ink.  I used Wisteria Wonder CS for the flower punched using the Punch Pack.  Finally to finish it off I used rhinestones.

Stampin' Up! Another Great Year birthday cardI finished the inside of the card with more of the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP, Strawberry Slush, ribbon and stamped the mosaic tiles from the stamp set “Mosaic Madness”.

Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge ends Jan 27, 2014, noon CST

The next card I created using the colors of Crisp Cantaloup, Pistachio Pudding and Pool Party.  The DSP I used to pull these colors together comes from the new Occasions Catalog – Sweet Sorbet.  Oh so pretty!  Love the colors!

I used the same layering and embossing technique as the previous card but used different colors and stamps and Voila!

Secret garden flowers

The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge this time around.  I created this card with the Secret Garden stamp set and framelits.  I also just received the NEW Big Shot Magnetic Platform which makes cutting with the framelits a breeze! It keeps the framelit in place while cutting.  Click here to see a video showing how this new platform works.  If you like using framelits then this tool is a must-have.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I colored the flowers with a blender pen and ink pads.  Some of the flowers I stamped.  After coloring and stamping the flowers I used the Secret Garden framelits to die cut them.  The background is embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  The butterfly is stamped with a butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.  I die cut it with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  I finished the card with rhinestones.

Fabulous You

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge to inspire you.  The colors are Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade.  So pretty!

These colors inspired me to use the Fabulous You stamp set.  I had not used the stamp set and it was perfect for a card I had in mind.

I love the shoe image which I inked up with Versamark and Island Indigo and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to create the flowers.  For some sparkle I added the rhinestones.
