Lovely as a Tree for Christmas

My card is based on this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments which is an inspiration challenge. The challenge inspired me to use the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the Woodlands Embossing folder to create a white Christmas card.

After embossing the white layer with the Woodland Embossing folder I colored the tree trunks with Gold Wink of Stella Glitter pen.  On another layer I stamped the trees with Chocolate Chip ink then traced the branches of the trees with the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter pen to make them sparkle then embellished with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon.

The inside of the card I stamped with silver Encore ink with stamps from the Christmas Pines set.

Happy Birthday! Another Great Year Another Great Birthday!

For those of you wondering where I’ve been.  I caught a bad cold on Christmas Day that persisted through New Year’s.  I certainly did not want to the start year in bed but I did.  I missed a few days from work and now feel like I’m finally over it.  I missed posting my project for the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments but managed to create these two birthday cards using the stamp set Another Great Year.  I have two friends with birthdays and I wanted to use this very fun stamp set.  I made two cards in two color stories.

Another Great Year 133041 clear $17.95, 13308 wood $23.95 Great price for so many stamps in this set!

This first card I used the color challenge colors at Hand Stamped Sentiments – Wisteria Wonder, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.

Stampin' Up! Another Great Year birthday card

For this card I stamped the “Happy Birthday” first in Strawberry Slush on the Whisper White layer, cleaned the stamp, then inked up the stamp with Versamark and stamped on Strawberry Slush cardstock and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool. Using my paper snips I then cut out the “happy” and “to you” banner pieces so I could layer them over the Strawberry Slush stamped image to give it dimension and a bit of a “split negative” look.  For embellishments I used the Mosaic punch to punch the tiles from Silver Glimmer paper and used a sponge dauber to color with Coastal Cabana ink.  I used Wisteria Wonder CS for the flower punched using the Punch Pack.  Finally to finish it off I used rhinestones.

Stampin' Up! Another Great Year birthday cardI finished the inside of the card with more of the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP, Strawberry Slush, ribbon and stamped the mosaic tiles from the stamp set “Mosaic Madness”.

Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge ends Jan 27, 2014, noon CST

The next card I created using the colors of Crisp Cantaloup, Pistachio Pudding and Pool Party.  The DSP I used to pull these colors together comes from the new Occasions Catalog – Sweet Sorbet.  Oh so pretty!  Love the colors!

I used the same layering and embossing technique as the previous card but used different colors and stamps and Voila!

Monstermaniacs Valentine card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a color challenge and I was so excited to use the Monstermaniacs stamp set given to me by my upline Erin.  This was the first time I used this versatile stamp set.

Since Valentine’s day is coming up I created this card for the occasion. I used a blender pen to color the image of the monster and used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to go over the spots on the monster.  This was a quick and easy card to make.

My Digital Studio Christmas Card

Lately I’ve been creating on My Digital Studio and for this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments I have created this Christmas Card.

Creating photo boxes and sizing them to your liking then filling with your choice of paper is how I created the glimmer strips and the strip of Season of Style DSP at the top of the card.  If you have MDS and haven’t used it in awhile, I invite you to create a card or scrap page using it.  If you don’t have MDS and would like to try before you buy click here for a FREE trial.
