Groovy Love From My Heart

This week’s challenge is a color splash challenge with the colors of Basic Black, Whisper White and Melon Mambo.  These colors inspired me to use my Groovy Love stamp set and coordinating heart punch to create this card.  I also used the new Happy Heart embossing folder from the Occasions catalog on the Whisper White layer along with the Fun Frames embossing folders for the hearts.  After embossing the frame on to Whisper White I cut the frame and sponged with Melon Mambo.

I stamped the polka dot heart and used the Sweetheart punch to die cut it.  I also used the punch to die cut a Melon Mambo and Whisper White hearts.  The edges of the Whisper White heart is sponged with Melon Mambo.  I then adhere the hearts on to the frame with Dimensionals.  I then used 1/8″ Melon Mambo taffeta ribbon to embellish.

Special Season Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge – Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Baked Brown Sugar.  When I saw these colors I immediately thought Christmas!  I know it’s a bit early to think about this holiday but I was so excited to use my new stamp set Special Season.  I was also inspired by a Christmas card created with this stamp set in the holiday catalog.

This Christmas Tree card was very easy to make.  I embossed the Baked Brown Sugar card base with the Northern Flurry embossing folder then added Dazzling Details to add sparkle.  I also added rhinestones for more bling.  I cut the Whisper White layer as a banner, stamped the Christmas tree image and sentiment.  To dress up the  Whisper White layer I made a bow with the Raspberry Ripple satin stitched ribbon and added a Frosted Finishes snowflake embellishment.  I colored the rhinestones for the tree with a Sharpie very similar to the Raspberry Ripple.  I’ve included a close-up photo of the Whisper White layer.  Super easy card!

Secret garden flowers

The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge this time around.  I created this card with the Secret Garden stamp set and framelits.  I also just received the NEW Big Shot Magnetic Platform which makes cutting with the framelits a breeze! It keeps the framelit in place while cutting.  Click here to see a video showing how this new platform works.  If you like using framelits then this tool is a must-have.

I colored the flowers with a blender pen and ink pads.  Some of the flowers I stamped.  After coloring and stamping the flowers I used the Secret Garden framelits to die cut them.  The background is embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  The butterfly is stamped with a butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.  I die cut it with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  I finished the card with rhinestones.

Wonderful You Easel Card

Wonderful you!  This easel card was created using the Label Framelits.  I also used the Paper Doily to create the delicate background  for the large butterfly.  To add some sparkle and texture I used vanilla smooch and embossed with the Vine street embossing folder.  This card would also make a great mother’s day card.

I used the sketch below from Hand Stamped Sentiments which is the next challenge.

All dressed up and somewhere to go

I’ve been having lots of fun with the All Dressed up Bundle from the new spring mini catalog.  I was so inspired by the color challenge over at PPA.  The colors are Basic Black, Melon Mambo and Basic Gray.  My card is an easel card die cut with the Floral Frames Framelits.  For added dimension I embossed the card’s background with the Fancy Fan Embossing folder.  I also used as a layer a paper doily which is also from the new spring mini catalog.  The dress is die cut with the Dress Up Framelits from the silver glimmer paper which I sponged with Melon Mambo ink.  I embellished with basic rhinestones and ribbon.  To help the sentiment pop it’s stamped in Whisper White then heat embossed with Iridescent powder.  To keep the easel card open I used one Large 8mm Basic rhinestone also featured in the new spring mini.
