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.

Beautiful You with Flourish Thinlits die

Creating this card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge  and spring.  Spring is here!  I used the Flourish Thinlits die to create the flowers and buds.  I stamped the Hardwood background stamp on Soft Suede with Early Espresso then stamped the greeting from the ‘Beautiful You’ stamp set.  The greeting is embossed with Pool Party embossing powder to make it pop.  I created the flowers and buds with the Flourish Thinlits.  To adhere the different color buds and flowers I used the Fine-tip glue pen.  It’s perfect for applying a small amount of adhesive.

For extra sparkle I added basic rhinestones and colored the flowers and buds with Clear Wink of Stella.  Super easy card .

Difficult to see but I did color the buds and flowers with Wink of Stella.  This card came together very easy.  Be inspired by the challenge and show us your project.

Let’s Celebrate your Day Detailed Floral Thinlits dies paper purse and card

My project this week is inspired from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Tip Top Taupe and Bibi Cameron’s paper purse tutorial.  Bibi has a pdf tutorial and video on how to make this beautiful paper purse.   I love how the  Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies create die-cut floral designs and edges for cards, envelopes or boxes.  The purse and card set I created will make a beautiful gift for a friend or mother’s day.

Christmas Pines are Pretty Pines

This week my card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of  Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.  I used the new stamp set Christmas Pines and Pretty Pines Thinlits dies bundle along with the Pine Bough Textured Embossing Folder.  I love the pine bough thinlets.  There are three different sizes which create such pretty foliage.  I also used the bow dies to create the Real Red and Bermuda Bay bows.  The Pine Bough textured embossing folder created a beautiful background on the Natural Ivory card stock.  After stamping the sentiment I used the 2-1/2″ circle punch to die cut it.   I love this bundle.  There are so many possibilities!

A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way

Inspiration for my card this week comes from Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry and Old Olive.  Although, the color Blackberry Bliss is retired you’re welcome to use a color similar like Elegant Eggplant.  I used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set to stamp all the background elements.  I also used the Bitty Butterfly punch to die cut the butterfly.  For sparkle I added basic rhinestones, gold sequins and used Gold Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush on the sunburst, butterfly and Crushed Curry dots.

A Pop of Pink

Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge this week inspired my card.  I used the Pop of Pink stamp set which I had not had an opportunity to use.  I also used the Pop of Color DSP and washi tape to create this card.  I love the Melon Mambo, Basic Black  with the Emerald Envy colors.  To coordinate with the DSP I used gold sequins and embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.  I love these colors together they make me happy.

The flamingo and leaves were fussy cut and adhered with dimensionals.  This was a fun card to make.

A Warm Pineapple Hello!

My card this week is inspired by the color challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Dapper Denim at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  My new pineapple stamp had not been inked and these colors inspired me to use it.  I like the stamp because its large size is perfect for stamping on card fronts.
