Have a Happy Blooming Birthday in a Flower Patch

April showers bring My flowers.  So they say.  However, here it is May and there are flowers but it’s still raining in San Antonio.   San Antonio received almost 7.5 inches of rain in April, making it the seventh-wettest April since 1886, the first year that precipitation levels were recorded for the area. All this rain has made my flowers grow.  Here’s a photo of the flowers in my garden which provided my inspiration for my card.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I used the Flower Patch Polymer Bundle to create the flowers and leaves.  For the sentiment I stamped the sentiment with Versamark then embossed it with gold embossing powder.  The cloud shape is from the Word Bubbles Framelits set.  For additional texture the second layer is embossed with the Chevron embossing folder.

Thinking of you in 2015-2017 New In Colors

For this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge.  I love the inspiration this sketch provided.  I used some of the new In Colors 2015-2017 to create this ‘Thinking of You’ card.

Stampin up In Colors 2015-2017 I used Natural Ivory for my card base and layered with the Mint Macaron.  For additional interest I used the corner punch to round opposite corners.  I stamped the spotted background with Mint Macaron using a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  I also used the fern stamp from Birthday Basics.  The leaves and the flower were stamped with stamps from the Crazy about You.  The leaves in Cucumber Crush and the flower in Watermelon Wonder are prefect cheerful colors.  The butterfly is stamped with Black Stazon and I used Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron to sponge the wings.  The beautiful Delightful Dijon lace ribbon is also from new 2015-2017 In Colors collection.

Join us with your interpretation of our sketch and see what our talented design team has created.

Happy New Year

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.   I created the card below inspired from the images below.

To create the background for my card I brayered silver Encore ink onto the Fancy Fan Textured Embossing Folder and embossed the black card stock.  I stamped the champagne glasses with silver Encore ink and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for additional shimmer.  I added basic rhinestones to the glasses for bubbles.  I cut a slit at the fold of the card and threaded the ribbon through.  After embossing the card stock becomes a bit flimsy so I adhered a layer of black card stock on the back side of the card front for stability and to hide the ribbon.  

All in all this card was super easy to make and took not time at all.

Easter Egg Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge with the colors of Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Rich Razzleberry and any neutral.  With Easter around the corner I created this Easter egg card.  I used the Ovals Collection Framelits to create the different layers.  The scalloped layer is embossed with the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder.  The images are from the Everybunny stamp set and water colored using an aqua pen and ink pads.  The images are framed with flowers die cut with the  Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack and embellished with rhinestones.

I hope these colors inspire you to join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
