A Pocketful of Sunshine with Daisy Delight

I finally got the opportunity to create with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set and framelits.  I love how you can create a pocket and decorate it.  I die cut the card from Night of Navy, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The card I created was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of So Saffron, Always Artichoke and Night of Navy.  I’m also loving the Daisy Delight bundle.  I love how the punch coordinates with the daisy stamp to create these beautiful daisies.  I used them to decorate the pocket.  I also added the leaves from the Rose Wonder and Flourish Thinlets.

The centers of the flowers were heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  For more sparkle I colored the petals of the daisies with clear Wink of Stella.  The background is glossy  paper sponged with Always Artichoke.

Life is a Beautiful Thing with Colorful Seasons

I love creating with the Colorful Seasons Bundle .  The bundle is so versatile especially when paired with the Color Theory Cardstock pack.  The card I created was inspired by Hand  Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  Fall is on it’s way and the images in the challenge inspired me to create a card with the beautiful colors of Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral.

The gradient background is out of the Color Theory Cardstock pack.  I stamped the leaf image all over the gradient background with white StayzOn.  The leaf images are very subtle.  I also stamped the leaves with VersaMark and heat embossed with Copper embossing powder. The leaves were die cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the sentiment  VersaMark on watercolor paper then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and sponged Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral to create a gradient effect.  I also die cut the small leaf on watercolor paper and sponged with Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral to match the gradient effect of the sentiment background.

So Many Shells for Sympathy Card

I just received the So Many Shells stamp set.  It has the two step stamps which adds texture and dimension to the shell images.  I used the colors of Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  For the background I used watercolor paper and used an Aqua Painter to color with Pool Party.   I stamped the shells on Whisper White and fussy cut each shell.  The sentiments is from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set and stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black.

I used gold metallic thread behind the shells for texture and used Clear Wink of Stella on the Shells to add sparkle and shimmer.  This was an easy card to make.Stampin Up So Many Shells Sympathy cardJoin Hand Stamped Sentiments for this fun color challenge and see more inspiration from the rest of the design team.

Blossom Builder Punch are Shells on a Beach

My card this week is inspired by Lynda at Understanding Blue.  I have CASED her card to create this sympathy card.  She has a great tutorial on how to create this card.  I wish my sand would not have turned out so dark but I think on my next try I’ll try a lighter brown.  I still like the effect of the watercolor technique.

Hello Foxy!

My card this week is inspired by a fox I’ve been seeing in some woods by my house and by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I finally played with the Foxy Friends stamp set and coordinating Fox Builder punch.  The background I embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder then colored the embossed trees with clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  The wood layer strip is from the Wood Textures DSP paper stack then layered with 1/4″ Copper Trim ribbon.

The cute fox I stamped in Cajun Craze and used the Fox Builder punch to die cut the head, body and tail.  The stump and outline banner was stamped in Early Espresso.  The ‘hello’ greeting is from the Eastern Beauty set and stamped in Old Olive and die cut with the Duet Banner punch.

A Daisy Delight Birthday!

I just received my Stampin’ Up! catalog pre-order!  Included was the Daisy Delight bundle.  The bundle includes the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch.  You too will be able to order this bundle starting June 1st.

I created this birthday card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder and Pool Party.

This card was fast and easy.  I stamped the daisies then punched them out with the daisy punch.  I punched out two daisies to make one full one.

I used the 3/4″ circle punch to punch out the centers out of silver glimmer paper.  The background is embossed with the Softly Falling textured folder.   The greeting banner is stamped on a 1″ strip.  The end is die cut using the Banner Triple punch.  I then added basic rhinestones to give it more sparkle.

Just a Note to LIFT your Spirits

I was inspired to create this card by the ‘Lift me Up’ bundle and the color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments of Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate.

Using the ‘Lift me Up’ bundle which includes the ‘Lift me up’ stamp set and ‘Up and Away’ thinlits dies was so easy to create the beautiful die cut hot air balloon and clouds with this set.

Although the color challenge was to use Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate, I used Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride to create an hombre effect on the balloon.
