In the Wild Birthday

I love cats! Big wild cats down to domestic cats I love them. So when I saw the Stampin’ Up! In the Wild Suite I just had to get it. My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge and the In the Wild Suite. I used tear and tape on the edges of the card then used gilded leafing. The leaves on the left were die cut with the coordinating dies from gold foil. The cat and leaves were also die cut with the coordinating dies. The face of the cat and the sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold. I used the coordinating DSP to die cut the circle from retired Layering Circles. The Evening Evergreen layer was embossed with the Animal Print embossing folder. The inside of the card is also stamped with leaf images from the In the Wild Suite. Love this suite!

Stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments and see what the design team created for the sketch challenge.

Paper Pumpkin June 2021 Alternative Triangle Fold Card

I was inspired this week by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge to create a triangle fold card with the June 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit. The kit coordinates with the Expressions in Ink bundle which is on my wish list. However, not having the bundle nor the DSP inspired me to create my version of the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper. One side of the paper has beautiful water color images with foil. This is the side I recreated using Gilded Leafing, Versamark and Heat and Stick powder.

Evergreen as my card base. For the triangle layers I used Just Jade and retired Purple Posy. I meant to use Fresh Freesia but somehow managed to select retired Purple Posy from my paper file.  Oh well I still think it turned out like I wanted.   On the Just Jade triangle layer I stamped the watercolor image in Evening Evergreen.  Some images I stamped at full strength and some I stamped off to create texture in the watercolor image.  For the Purple Posy I stamped the watercolor image in Fresh Freesia using the same technique of stamping full strength then stamping off.  I then used the Versamark pen to outline some of the watercolor images then used Heat and Stick powder to adhere the Gilded Leafing.

I used the die cut foliage from the kit and a die from the Tasteful Labels set to stamp the flower image from the Paper Pumpkin kit in Versamark and heat emboss with gold.  I then colored the flower with Polished Pink and the leaves with Just Jade using a blender pen.  I adhered the die cut foliage to the die cut label and finished with a bow in Soft Succulent.  The inside of the card I used the birthday sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set an stamped the flowers from the images from the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I also used the flower images to stamp on the envelope with Polished Pink.

Art Gallery Gilded Birthday

I created this card for Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge with products from the Art Gallery suite.  I especially love the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder which I used for the background panel because it embosses the paper to have a painted texture.  I also used the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate to die cut the fancy label with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  I also used the rectangle die to cut out the rectangle panel behind the flower from the Fine Art Floral DSP.  The gold ribbon is also from the suite. The flower I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and Heat and Stick to add the gold leafing.  The stem and leaves were stamped with Mossy Green.

Timeless Tulips

The card I created is inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration images convey spring and have many shades of tulips. I had not yet used the Timeless Tulips stamp set and builder punch so I created a mother’s day card for my dear aunt. She loves tulips so this would be the perfect stamp set to create a card for her.

  • Stampin' Up Mother's day card created with Stampin Up Timeless Tulips stamp set and Tulips builder punch.  The in color of polished pink, daffodil delight and pear pizzazz.

The patterned layer is new from the In-Colors 2021 – 2023 dsp in Polished pink. The white layer is embossed with the retired Pinewood Planks embossing folder then die cut with the largest rectangle scalloped die from the Scalloped Contours die set. The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips set, stamped in Pear Pizzazz then die cut with the smallest rectangle from the Scalloped Contours. The large tulip was stamped in Daffodil Delight then die cut with the Tulips builder punch as well as the large leaf stamped in Pear Pizzazz. The smaller tulip was stamped in Polished Pink. I love this color then fussy cut as well as other leaves I stamped with Pear Pizzazz. This card was super easy to put together. I hope all moms and women that do the work of moms are appreciated no only on mother’s day but throughout the year.

You’re Absolutely Amazing

The card I created this week is CASED from a card featured on page 98 of the new Annual Catalog using the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge colors of – Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Bumblebee.  Not only does the Annual Catalog feature wonderful products but also a variety of projects showing how the stamps, dies and embellishments may be used.  

For the background I embossed a Whisper White layer with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder then sponged Bumblebee ink.  I also die cut two strips of Whisper White with the scallop die.  I stamped the outline of the flower full strength then stamped stamped off for stamping the inside of the flower.  The sentiment is also from the stamp set and stamped in Flirty Flamingo and die cut with coordinating die. 

The leaves I stamped  in Momento black then die cut them with the die.  The one leaf on the left is stamped then fussy cut.  For embellishments I used the Gold Gilded Gems and Gold Fine Art ribbon.

Garden Wishes Sympathy Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments they have a color challenge of Calypso Coral, Bumblebee and Just Jade.  I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend and decided to use the colors in the challenge and use a technique I had not used in awhile.  I created the watercolor background by coloring an acrylic block with Bumblebee and Just Jade markers then spritzing the block with water and stamping it onto Shimmery White card stock.  I then dried the ink with my heat tool.  I then stamped the flowers from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set and sentiment with Stazon Jet Black.

Thank You with an Amazing Iris

Spring has sprung!  l am so glad it’s finally here and a welcome change.  My card this week is inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Highland Heather and the stamp set ‘Inspiring Iris’.  I embossed the background layer with the Pine Wood Planks 3D embossing folder.  The iris stamp set is a two step set.  I stamped the iris and leaves in Momento black then stamped the foliage with Pear Pizzazz and the iris in Highland Heather.  I then die cut the oval with the Stitched Shapes Dies wrapped white baker’s twine then adhered the oval with dimensionals.  The sentiment I stamped with Momento black on So Saffron.  I’m sending theis card to a friend so I had to stamp the envelope with the irises.

Super easy card and love the two step stamping.

Friendly Flamingo Birthday Card

I survived the winter storm in San Antonio, TX!  The week of February 15th 2021 was not a typical winter week for us.  We normally don’t have snow except for a day and not every winter.  Last week it was so cold we lost electricity and water.  I know for many of you snow days are not unusual.  However, I’m glad it’s behind us.

Longing for tropical weather I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  The colors in the mood board and the colorful flowers inspired me to create this birthday card with the Friendly Flamingo stamp set in the new mini catalog.  The card base is Granny Apple Green followed by Daffodil Delightful.  The Oh So Ombre printed paper is FREE with a $50 purchase right now during Sale-a-bration.  All die cut elements, except the stitched circle are from the Friendly Flamingo Bundle.

Just for you Sweet Strawberry Valentine

With Valentine’s day so close I was inspired to create another project.  I had saved  a Russell Stover’s heart shaped box with the idea of repurposing it.  So I decided to re-use the box to create a gift for my hubby.  I’m going to put some sweet memories in the form of my favorite pictures in the box and give it to him on Valentine’s day.  I was also inspired by the color challenge of Real Red, Blushing Bride and Bermuda Bay at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I started with embossing a piece of Whisper White paper then embossing with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I then adhered it to the top of the heart box then cut to the lid with paper snips.  I adhered a Vellum Doily followed by gold hoop.  I was inspired by the card on page 44 of the mini catalog to create the 3D strawberries.  I first stamped the strawberries with Real Red on Real Red paper then die cut with the Strawberry Builder Punch. I added the leaves stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on Bermuda Bay paper.  I also added gold springs die cut with the sprig punch,  Other embellishments include Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, retired 3/8″ Sheer Real Red ribbon and basic rhinestones.  The sentiment is stamped on Blushing Bride with Real Red.
