A Winter Woods Christmas

My card this weeks is inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  The image that inspired me the most was the Christmas tree.  I decided to use the In the Woods dies and Winter Woods stamp set.  The sentiment is die cut from the Merry Christmas set and stamped with the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.

I stamped the trees from the Winter Woods stamp set then embossed vellum with the Woodland Embossing  Folder.  I also used the embossing paste on the tree for the snow.  For extra sparkle I added basic rhinestones and the retired medium star punch to die cut two stars from silver glimmer paper to top the tree.

A Toile Christmas Cardinal

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Shaded Spruce.  When I first saw these colors I immediately thought Christmas and took the opportunity to finally use my new Toile Christmas Bundle.  I had to get this bundle because of the cardinal stamp and die.  I love cardinals and actually see them quite often in my backyard.  They are beautiful birds with their bight red feathers.

I knew I wanted to use the Woodland Embossing folder for the background to my card.  I inked up the folder with Coastal Cabana and embossed a Very Vanilla card stock layer and layered over a Real Red and Very Vanilla Christmas Toile DSP.  I stamped the cardinal and branch with black Momento ink then colored it with Real Red and Shaded Spruce dark and light blender pens.  I stamped the greeting with Versa mark then heat embossed with Silver embossing powder.  I then die cut the cardinal, branch and greeting with the dies then adhered using glue dots.  I also used retired 3/8″ Real Red mixed satin ribbon.

A Pumpkin Harvest Hello Birthday

I was finally able to create with the Harvest Hello stamp set and was inspired to create my card from the fall colors of Pier1 and the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I love the Harvest Hello stamp set because the pumpkin shape can also be an apple.  I created my card using the colors of Pretty Peacock and Pool Party with accents of gold.

I embossed the Whisper White  layer with the Woodlands Embossing folder.   Before I embossed the paper I inked the embossing folder with Early Espresso then ran it through.  I also used clear Wink of Stella to color over the Early Espresso.  The Pool Party layer I stamped with the leaf from the Colorful Seasons stamp set with gold Delicata ink and also die cut the leaf from Gold Glimmer paper using the Seasonal Layer dies.  I die cut using the Leaf punch and the die from the Tropical dies. I also die cut a leaf from Pretty Peacock foil using the  leaf die from the Flourish de set.  I used Whisper White for the pumpkins.  One I stamped with the gold Delicata ink and the other with Pizzazz.  The curly cues I did by wrapping around my pick.

Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions

I love seashells and sea life themed stamp sets so I was excited when I saw the Seaside Notions stamp set in the new catalog.  The seahorse image is my favorite.  I stamped the seahorse and sea shells with Momento Black and colored them with watercolor pencils and blender pen.  I used Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight for the seahorse.  The sea shells I colored with Early Espresso, Calypso Coral and Pacific Point watercolor pencils.

The background is embossed with retired Seaside Embossing folder.  I die cut the mesh background from the Under The Sea dies and also die cut a label from the Stitched Nested Labels set.  The greeting is also from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

My card is based on the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  There is more inspiration for this challenge from the design team.

Good Morning Magnolia

So many stamp sets, so little time.  This is the first time I use the large magnolia flower stamp from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  The flower looks great not colored or with a little color the way I colored it with Flirty Flamingo.  I also used the Clear Wink Stella on the black center and outlines.  For more color, I also used the spatter stamp from the ‘Beauty Abounds’ stamp set behind the flower.  This is a simple card that can be replicated with different layer colors.  I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base and layered with Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White.

This card is also inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.

Happy Tails Wag On

I love dogs and I love the Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails stamp set.  Inspiration for my card comes from the Color Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments of Pretty Peacock, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.

Before I embossed the Soft Suede with the  Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder I inked the folder with Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the dogs with Soft Suede on Whisper White and stamped collars with Cherry Cobbler and Pretty Peacock then die cut the dogs with the Dog Builder Punch. I die cut the heart from Cherry Cobbler then colored with clear Wink of Stella for sparkle. I used the Banner Triple punch on a 1.5″ strip of Pretty Peacock.  The sentiment is stamped with Versamark then heat embossed with White embossing powder.  I colored basic rhinestones with Cherry Cobbler markers then used linen thread to embellish the banner.

A Bird Ballad: Your friendship means the world to me

I recently found out one of my dear friends whom I craft with often is moving away.  I’m happy for her but sad she;s leaving.  I created this card to give to her and let her know how important her friendship is to me.   I created this card with products from the Bird Ballad suite and inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.

I primarily used the colors of Pool Party and Calypso Coral.  I used the Stampin’ Blends to color the bird, flowers and leaves.  I also used the Birds Ballad dsp.  I die cut the layer with the bird image with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and used the decorative edge die on the bottom of the Pool Party layer.  I used pearls and 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Ribbon to embellish.  I used the retired ornate topper punch to create the tag and rounded the corners with retired corner punch.  The card came together pretty quickly.
