Let Your Dreams Soar Above the Clouds

This card is a sneak peek of one of the new Stampin’ Up bundle Above the Clouds photopolymer stamp set and punch.  This bundle is very versatile and perfect for this time of year, graduation.  My card is also inspired by the color challenge of Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I stamped the clouds with Versamark on  Coastal Cabana then embossed with white embossing powder.  The hot air balloons I stamped with Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo then used a blender pen with and ink pads to color.  I then die cut with the Hot Air Balloon punch.  The birds and sentiment I stamped with black Momento ink.  The sentiment I die cut with 1-3/4″ circle punch and the white outer circle with the 2″ circle punch.  Then used white bakers twine and Basic Rhinestones to embellish.

Hello Beautiful

I love walking in my garden.  Every time I do I see blooming flowers and butterflies, which along with Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge, inspired me to create this card.  I used the Butterfly Gala stamp set, Butterfly Duet punch and Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies to create this card.  I stamped the butterflies with Black Moment Ink then colored them with the Blendabilities markers Pool Party light and dark and the Daffodil Delight light and dark   The foliage I die cut gold foil paper with the Butterfly Beauty thinlits.

The sentiment is from Butterfly Gala stamp set.  I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The card base is Coastal Cabana followed by Bermuda Bay.  The black layer I embossed with the Dynamic Textured Pinewood Planks.

Happy Birthday with Petal Palette

Spring time is here along with birthdays for several of my friends.  So I took the opportunity to be inspired by the inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create a birthday card for one of my friends.  The card I created was very easy and quick to make.  I used the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating Thinlits.  The sentiment was die cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  Love this die!   I also used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. for the background.  The flowers were stamped with Momento Black and colored with Stampin’ Blending Calypso Coral and Old Olive markers.

Celebrate with a Fabulous Flamingo

Flamingos are everywhere!   They’re on pillows, tees, cups, cards and so much more.  I recently purchased the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set and couldn’t wait to use it with the Tropical Chic.  The color challenge of Call me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick at Hand Stamped Sentiments also inspired my birthday flamingo card.

The Call me Clover base I stamped with the leaf stamp from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.  The flamingo I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and black Momento ink then fussy cut with paper snips.  The foliage and flowers were stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set and die cut using the Tropical Thinlit dies.

To add sparkle I used the Wink of Stella on the flowers and the flamingo.  I also used a rhinestone for the eye of the flamingo.  The ribbons are 1/8″ Grosgrain Lovely Lipstick  and 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners set.  The faceted button is retired.  Making this card was fun!

Beauty Abounds in Friendship

Spring has sprung!  The garden is blooming and the foliage is showing off their new shoots.  A beautiful enticement for the butterflies.  It’s a glorious time of year.  For me, everything seems possible and brings a wonderful feeling of renewal and creativity.

My garden inspiration and card.

card made with Stampin up Beauty abounds stamp set and Butterfly Beauty Thinlits dies

 

Hence my inspiration as well as the sketch challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  My card reflects the colors of spring and butterflies.  I used the Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp set and the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies.  I do have to mention my card is also CASED from the 2019 Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog, page 13.  Stampin’ Up! catalogs just don’t show products but they also show wonderful projects featuring their products which also inspire creativity.

Hello Spring and Welcome through my Barn Door!

Spring is right around the corner and I’m busy with spring cleaning.   My hubby is busy tidying up the garden and I’m putting away my winter dishes, hanging up my spring wreath and cleaning up my outdoor furniture.  I love it when we go to daylight savings and I can drive home from work in the daylight.  I know it sounds silly but I so enjoy this time of year.  I feel happy because the plants in our garden are blooming and the weather is getting warmer.  Hello spring!

So it seems fitting that my card is inspired by the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Here’s my card.

I embossed the So Saffron with the Simple Stripes Textured Embossing Folder.  The door, ‘hello hanging frame and flower were  stamped from the Barn Door stamp set and die cut with the Sliding Door Framelits.  The chair is die cut with the Season Layers Thinlits.  I inked up the flamingo from the Pop of Color retired stamp set with Write Markers – Basic Black and Melon Mambo.  I free cut the flower pot from Blushing Bride card stock and stamped the plant from the Flowering Desert stamp set and fussy cut it.

This is the best Sale-a-bration ever!  Fun stamps, thinlets, and accessories can be earned with every $50 purchase from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  One of the stamp sets you can earn is the So Hoppy Together.  This stamp set features three very cute frogs which I had to get.

The card I created was inspired by the color challenge of Soft Sea Foam, Pool  Party and Highland Heather at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I stamped the leaves and flower using the Tropical Chic Stamp set and used the Tropical Thinlits to die cut the leaves and fussy cut the flower.  The frog and dragonfly I stamped with Momento black, colored with a blender pen and ink pads then fussy cut the frog.  The sentiment is also from the Tropical Chic set.
