Hand Stamped Sentiments Luau Theme Challenge #24

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a Luau Theme Challenge.  I had fun creating these projects with My Digital Studio software.  I created a card and favor box using the digital stamps Petal Pizzazz included with initial purchase of MDS.  I used this stamp set because the flowers were big and bold.  Just perfect for this theme.  I printed a layer with the images and sentiment then adhered it to Old Olive card stock and added ribbon.  So easy!  The next project I also created with My Digital Studio but this time I had some hibiscus clipart I wanted to use.  I was able to import the images into My Digital Studio but first I had convert the .jpg images to  .png files then put them into the embellishments folder in MDS so I could access them.  In MDS I created a background with both the Petal Pizzazz and hibiscus images to add behind the flower images and to also make the favor boxes.  The templates for these boxes can be purchased for $1.95.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique Challenge #22 and Giveaway!

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge –  fancy fold or shape card.  I’ve been wanting to create a watering can card and this was my opportunity.  The template is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I have included the template link below.  Also this week I am giving away the stamp set Of the Earth.  Leave me a comment and your name will be entered in the drawing.  To see what else you can win go to Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Now on to the project deets. To add dimension to the watering can I cut out an additional spout and sponged the edges of the can and sentiment oval with Soft Suede ink.  I stamped all the flower images on Very Vanilla card stock.  I used glue dots and SNAIL to adhere the flowers and the leaves.  I used the rock and roll method with Garden Green and Olive Green ink to add dimension to the leaves.  I had a lot of fun creating this card.
