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.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Cone Strawberry box and tag

Juicy red strawberries were my inspiration for this week’s fruit challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I love shopping the produce section.  Vibrant colors and fruit displayed to show it’s freshness.  Strawberries are in abundance at my grocery store.  The clear boxes filled with juicy strawberries got me to thinking I could make a strawberry out of the Petal Cone die and to make it more decadent I thought chocolate dipped!  Here’s my creation complete with tag.  See below to download the tutorial for how to make this gift set.

Flourish Fever

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have Flourish Fever!  What is a flourish you ask?  Well for our challenge it is a decorative image with sweeping or fanciful curves or lines.  I immediately thought of the flourish in the Strength and Hope stamp set and the digital background papers.  I went for the shabby chic style and this is what I created.

I stamped the solid heart in Pretty in Pink from the I (heart) Hearts stamp set then for that sparkle I covered it in Dazzling Diamonds and added the pearls.  I distressed the edges by sponging them with Soft Suede and also using the Cutter Kit to tatter the edges.  The flower layers were scrunched and the edges sponged to distress it.
