Happy Birthday with Petal Palette

Spring time is here along with birthdays for several of my friends.  So I took the opportunity to be inspired by the inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create a birthday card for one of my friends.  The card I created was very easy and quick to make.  I used the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating Thinlits.  The sentiment was die cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  Love this die!   I also used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. for the background.  The flowers were stamped with Momento Black and colored with Stampin’ Blending Calypso Coral and Old Olive markers.

Celebrate with a Fabulous Flamingo

Flamingos are everywhere!   They’re on pillows, tees, cups, cards and so much more.  I recently purchased the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set and couldn’t wait to use it with the Tropical Chic.  The color challenge of Call me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick at Hand Stamped Sentiments also inspired my birthday flamingo card.

The Call me Clover base I stamped with the leaf stamp from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.  The flamingo I stamped with Flirty Flamingo and black Momento ink then fussy cut with paper snips.  The foliage and flowers were stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set and die cut using the Tropical Thinlit dies.

To add sparkle I used the Wink of Stella on the flowers and the flamingo.  I also used a rhinestone for the eye of the flamingo.  The ribbons are 1/8″ Grosgrain Lovely Lipstick  and 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners set.  The faceted button is retired.  Making this card was fun!

Happy Birthday with some Lemon Zest

I have just now had the opportunity to play with the Lemon Zest bundle and my card was inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and a card create by Crafty Little Peach Stamper.

I stamped the citrus images on watercolor paper then sponged the darker color.  I love the dreamy effect of the water coloring of the citrus images then die cut with the 1-3/8″ circle punch and embellished with Lemon Twist grograin ribbon and Bermuda Bay sequins and rhinestones.

Happy New Year and Dragonfly Dreams!

Happy New Year and all the best for 2018!  I look forward to a fresh new start.  The new year and Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge both inspired me to create my card.  I chose the colors of Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party which to me remind me of spring.

The background on the larger layer I created using the smoosh ink technique with Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party.  The background on the smaller layer I created with the dot stamp from the Dragonfly Dreams set.  The dragonfly I die cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper then embellished with basic rhinestones.

Party Wishes!

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  I was also inspired by page 4 of the Occasions Catalog to create this birthday card.  I used the Party Wishes Stamp Set and the Party Punch Pack bundle and Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the ‘It’s My Party’ suite.

I sponged the colors of Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo over the embossed portions to create a fun festive background.  I fussy cut the cake and die cut the balloons and candle.
