‘Tis the Season to Sparkle with Seasonal Layers

My card this week has been inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments  sketch challenge and all the Christmas movies I’ve been watching on the Hallmark channel.  Every year as part of preparing for the holidays I watch Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel.  All the movies seem to start with a beautiful snowy setting which made me think snowflakes which made me think the snowflakes from the Seasonal  Layers Thinlits Dies.  This die set is so versatile because it has images for every season.  It contains three different snowflakes which I die cut from Whisper White, Silver Foil paper and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  I used Smoky Slate for the background layer and embossed the Whisper White layer with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder then added the 1/8″ silver ribbon in a swirl pattern using glue dots.  I then adhered the snowflakes to create my snowy scene.  The sentiment ‘Tis the Season to Sparkle’ is from the Season to Sparkle stamp set which I die cut from retired Scallop Oval Punch.

For more sparkle I added rhinestones and silver sequins.Stampin Up Seasonal Layers Snowflake Christmas cardGo to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see more inspiration from the design team.

A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way

Inspiration for my card this week comes from Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry and Old Olive.  Although, the color Blackberry Bliss is retired you’re welcome to use a color similar like Elegant Eggplant.  I used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set to stamp all the background elements.  I also used the Bitty Butterfly punch to die cut the butterfly.  For sparkle I added basic rhinestones, gold sequins and used Gold Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush on the sunburst, butterfly and Crushed Curry dots.

A Swirly Thank You

This week’s challenge is a color challenge, Night of Navy, Pink Pirouette and Gold.  I created my card using the Swirly Bird Bundle.  This bundle is so much fun!  You can create swirlies in different sizes and it has a great dotted stamp which adds texture.  I used this stamp with gold ink for a background.   Here’s my card inspired by page 152 of the NEW Stampin’ Up! Catalog and Idea Book.

I stamped the ‘Thank You’ sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set with Versamark and embossed with gold on to a strip of Whisper Water and cut the edges to create a banner.  I then embellished with gold sequins.  Be inspired by this color challenge and join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration challenge.  The photo of all the citrus inspired me to create this card.

Stampin up A Nice Cuppa card

I embossed the white card base with the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder.  The citrus slices were stamped with the stamp from A Nice Cuppa set then die cut with the 1-1/4″ circle punch.  The cute cup and squiggle was die cut with the Cups and Kettle Framelits from the Have a Cuppa DSP.  I stamped the greeting then die cut with the Artisan Label punch.   This bundle is great and so versatile.

Life is a Beautiful Ride in a Love Bug

My card is based on this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the stamp set Beautiful Ride to create my card.  I stamped the car image with Momento Black on the heart dsp and fussy cut.  I also stamped the tires on Whisper White and fussy cut then adhered to the car body.  The cute little dog is also from this stamp set.  He looks so cute in the back window.  I stamped the luggage on whisper white and used a blender pen to color and fussy cut then adhered to the heart.

The banners I trimmed with the Triple Banner Punch and stamped the sentiment.  I embellished with Bermuda Bay sequins, rhinestones and ribbon.

A Grateful Bunch

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  The sketch inspired me to create a card with the Grateful Bunch Stamp set and coordinating punch.  What’s fun about this stamp set is there are so many elements.   The lace stamp is a favorite of this set.  I used it on the side of the card along with the Venetian Crochet trim.  The flowers, leaves and sentiment are also from this set.  The flowers I die cut with the coordinating Blossom Bunch punch.  The dots were created with the stamp from Timeless Treasures which is also a new stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  The set is very versatile which is a must-have for your collection.

Acorny Thank You

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  I created my card with the Acorny stamp set and coordinating punch.  I love this stamp set and with the punch it makes it so easy to create cute little acorns.  I wanted for the acorns to stand out so I put them on a layer which I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Embossing folder.
