Happy Birthday! Let’s Celebrate with Sunflowers

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge. The images are perfect for this time of year. For this challenge the Celebrate with Sunflowers and Sunflower dies were perfect.

Since the sunflower is round I decided to make an easel card. I haven’t made one in a while and thought to make a circle easel card.

I stamped the sunflower with Memento Black on Daffodil Delight card stock. I then used Stampin’ Blends Mango Melody light and dark, Daffodil Delight dark, Calypso Coral light, Crumb Cake light and dark to color the sunflower. I used Patty Bennet’s tutorial for coloring the sunflower.

The base of the easel card is Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Basic White. I used the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder to emboss the Basic White and Daffodil Delight. I used the Forever Flourishing dies to die cut the foliage in Shaded Spruce. I used the Sunflower dies to die cut the sunflower and the gold foliage. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and die cut using the Label Me Fancy punch.. I embellished with the Amber Gems. I also used Wink of Stella on the sunflower. This card was a very easy card to make.

Here is the mood board for Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge. Visit HSS to see more inspiration from the design team.

Forever Blossoms on Tailor Made Tag

My card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge. This sketch has a tag layer which is so fun! I created my card with colors Highland Heather, Cinnamon Cider and Pale Papaya. First I started with a Basic White card base followed by, Cinnamon Cider then DSP from the Hand-Penned collection. I die cut the largest tag from the Tailor Made Tags dies then stamped the blossoms with Highland Heather. I stamped another blossoms image on Basic White with Memento Black then colored with Highland Heather light and dark and light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Pens. I die cut branches from brushed gold foil with the Sprigs punch. I also used dies to die cut foliage from the Sunflower dies. I used metallic butterflies and colored Basic Rhinestones with Highland Heather for the center of the flowers. The ribbon is from Basketweave & Metallic ribbbon combo pack. I didn’t put a sentiments since this will be a card I can use for any occasion.

Here is the sketch I used from Hand Stamped Sentiments for my card. Let’s see what you can create with this sketch.

Friendly Hello Birthday Card

My card this week was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge and by StampinJo.com‘s card with the Friendly Hello Bundle. I CASED her card and used Pool Party and birds as my inspiration from Hand Stamped Sentiments. The background layer was embossed with the Textured Textile Embossing Folder. The next layer I die cut DSP from the Friendly Hello bundle with the largest rectangle in the Scalloped Contours Die. The next layer is cut from Brushed Gold Foil. The next layer is die cut from the stitched rectangle from the Scalloped Contours Die set. I then stamped the bird and flowers from the Friendly Hello die stamp set and colored with the Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Blend Pens. I then fussy cut it and adhered with dimensionals. I then stamped the splatter stamp from the Friendly Hello set with Memento black. I embellished with retired Daffodil Delight ribbon, Brushed Brass Butterflies and Basic Rhinestones.

Art Gallery Gilded Birthday

I created this card for Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge with products from the Art Gallery suite.  I especially love the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder which I used for the background panel because it embosses the paper to have a painted texture.  I also used the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate to die cut the fancy label with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  I also used the rectangle die to cut out the rectangle panel behind the flower from the Fine Art Floral DSP.  The gold ribbon is also from the suite. The flower I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and Heat and Stick to add the gold leafing.  The stem and leaves were stamped with Mossy Green.

Friendly Flamingo Birthday Card

I survived the winter storm in San Antonio, TX!  The week of February 15th 2021 was not a typical winter week for us.  We normally don’t have snow except for a day and not every winter.  Last week it was so cold we lost electricity and water.  I know for many of you snow days are not unusual.  However, I’m glad it’s behind us.

Longing for tropical weather I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.  The colors in the mood board and the colorful flowers inspired me to create this birthday card with the Friendly Flamingo stamp set in the new mini catalog.  The card base is Granny Apple Green followed by Daffodil Delightful.  The Oh So Ombre printed paper is FREE with a $50 purchase right now during Sale-a-bration.  All die cut elements, except the stitched circle are from the Friendly Flamingo Bundle.
