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.

Tiny Teacups

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color splash challenge.  The colors are Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard and Cajun Craze.  A neutral of Whisper White or Very Vanilla could be used with this fresh combination.

I just received the Tiny Teacup stamp and it’s so cute.  So I thought these colors would be great to use with it.

Tiny Teacup item #118086, $5.95


I used my Big Shot with the Scallop Rectangle die to cut the card base then ran it again through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The next layer is Cajun Craze and I rounded the corners.  I then used the Pear Pizzaz DSP, Hostess Level 1 In Colors pad to punch the square scallop.  I stamped the teacups in the different colors on Very Vanilla and masked the sentiment then punched them with the 1-1/4″ square.  I stamped the ‘hello’ sentiment by masking the teacup and stamping in the different colors and punching it also with the square punch.  I then ran them through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder and adhered to the square scallop then adhered them to the Cajun Craze layer.

I used 1/4″ Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon and I also punched with the Scallop border punch the Pear Pizzaz DSP and adhered the border underneath the ribbon.  A very easy card!

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge 23 – Color Splash

This week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color splash challenge – Whisper White, Rose Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake.  Some of the designers this week must have had Paris in mind because we reached for the Artistic Etchings and Chic Boutique stamp sets.  I used the Chic Boutique stamp set because I recently purchased it and I had not had a chance to use yet and Paris is a place I’d love to visit.  I had a lot of fun creating this card.

BlOG CANDY WINNER:  The winner for last week’s challenge selected by RANDOM.ORG is #6 Christiana of Christy Gets Crafty who wrote “How lovely and inventive! You did a great job with this card! I’ve never seen anything like it.”  Congratulations to Christiana and thank you all for your comments.  I also hope to see you participate in this week’s color challenge.
