The Beauty of Friendship

My card this week was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiment Inspiration challenge and helpful neighbors. My husband and I are so blessed to have such wonderful neighbors. This past weekend our neighbor helped with replacing our patio fan. It really needed to be replaced. We were prepared to call a handy man to replace it but they were here a couple of weeks ago and offered to help in replacing it. I ordered the fan and our neighbor came over to take down the old fan and install the new one. The Inspiration Challenge at HSS has such wonderful outdoor images. The trees inspired me to use my Beauty of Friendship stamp set and Beautiful Trees dies. It’s a one layer card I CASED from Anna Helman. I stamped the trees on to Sahara Sand with Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce. The strip of foliage I stamped with the different greens and Crushed Curry and combined with an embossed strip of Crumb Cake. I used the Timber 3D Embossing folder. Then sentiment I stamped with Shaded Spruce on Basic White then die cut with the rectangle from the Beautiful Trees dies and layered with a layer die cut with the Elegant Tag punch. I embellished the tag with linen thread and Parakeet Party Metallic Woven ribbon.

Daffodil Daydream Easter Blessings

Inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge and by Cindy Bee’s daffodil faux center step card. I had not had the opportunity to ink up the Daffodil Daydream stamp and die bundle and was inspired by Cindy Bee’s card. I used the dies to create a daffodil and cut-out the daffodils to create an Easter card. I also used the Daffodil paper from Sale-a-bration.

Stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments and be inspired by the design team.

Easter Friends say Happy Easter

I was inspired to create this card from Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge – Mint Macaron, So Saffron and Fresh Freesia. These colors are perfect for spring and for Easter. I recently purchased the Stampin’ Up Easter Friends and combined this stamp set with the color challenge to create an Easter card.

I used the three largest scalloped dies from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I used Fresh Freesia for the largest scalloped die then used DSP from the Hand-Penned DSP collection. The sentiment is from the Easter Friends stamp set and stamped in Mint Macaron on Basic White card stock. The cute ducky is stamped in Gray Granite and sponged with So Saffron. The legs, feet and beak were colored with a Blender Pen in So Saffron and colored darker than the body which I used a sponge dauber. To embellish I used Fresh Freesia color jewels from the 2021-2021 In Color Jewels. The ribbon is 3/8″ Open Weave Fresh Freesia. The inside of the card is stamped with Fresh Freesia sentiment and chick image in Gray Granite and sponged with So Saffron. Sentiment and images are from the Easter Friends Stampin’ Up stamp set.

Take the color challenge and see what you can create with these beautiful spring colors. Go to HHS and be inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments design team.
