Fine Feathers to say Hello

I recently received the Four Feathers bundle, Four Feathers Stamp set and Feathers Framelits.  I love this bundle!  I used it to create this card based on the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

Stampin' Up! Fine Feathers Hello cardI stamped the feathers with Encore silver ink on Whisper White and Basic Black then die cut them with the Feather Framelits.  The feature paper is from the Back to Black Designer Series paper pack.  I embellished the card with 1/8″ silver and Whisper White Organza ribbon along with the Scallop Edge border punch and Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and basic rhinestones.  The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White with Momento Black.

 Be inspired to create a project with this sketch.  If you need more inspiration visit Hand Stamped Sentiments to see what our talented designers have created.

Day 2 of convention

My day 2 of convention started with a wonderful speaker, Jason Dorsey.  He talked about how to better market our business to Generation Y.  So interesting and informational.  He explained how to better understand and communicate with Gen Y.

After this session Erin, Erica, Shannon and me went to Momento Mall.  So many cool displays.  I spent more than what I wanted.  I hope my hubby doesn’t see this…LOL

After Momento Mall I attended another session for how to create some great projects in a very savvy way.  I was not able to photograph them today  but I promise to tomorrow.

After our session on MDS2  ( it will be released on August 1 and will have some many cool features) we went home to get ready for Award’s Night.  Here are a few pics of the stage area.  I’ll have some pics of Mindy and Erica in their finest tomorrow.  We were so happy for them.

It’s time for me to go to bed.  I’ll have more pics tomorrow.  Until then.

Rocking Christmas Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fun challenge – Fancy Fold Cards.   With only few more days left till Christmas I decided to make another Christmas card but with a rocking twist.  I had seen this type of card out in internet land and decided to make a rocking Christmas card.  You can view a tutorial for making this card here.  They’re so easy to create!  I cut an Early Espresso 5″ circle and a 4-1/2″ Soft Suede circle with my Circle Scissor Plus then folded them in half and glued them together.

The Scallop Circle Cherry Cobbler layer is embossed with the Snow Burst embossing folder and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I used the Scallop Circle and Scallop Circle #2 dies to cut the Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle and the Lucky Limeade Scallop Circle.  The Gift image is stamped on watercolor paper with brown StayzOn and colored with ink pads and a blender pen.  I used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut out this layer at 2-3/4″ .  To add some more sparkle I framed it with Champagne Glass glitter.  I added an Old Olive button and stamped ‘Merry Christmas’ in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.

For the back of the card I stamped the bird and ornament image on water color paper then punched with the ornament punch.  I also used ink pads and a blender pen to color.  I stamped snowflakes and heat embossed them in gold along with the sentiment.

Hop on over to HSS for more inspiration from out very talented Design Team.
