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.

You are Tea-riffic

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.

Say Thanks with Vintage Leaves

This week on Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge of Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Pool Party.   For my project I used the Vintage Leaves stamp set with coordinating framelits.   I stamped the leaves in Tangerine Tango on Very Vanilla card stock.  I sponged Daffodil Delight and Pool Party on the leaves.  The background I embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The sentiment was die cut from gold foil paper with the Hello You Thinlit dies.  Creating this card was easy!

Awesomely Artistic and a Work of Art

My inspiration for my card this week comes from this week’s HSS Inspiration Challenge and from page 118 of the Stampin’ Up’s! Catalog and Idea book.  I love I can peruse through the catalog and see something different every time!  I used the NEW In-Color Mint Macaron with touches of gold and Bermuda Bay sequins, with black.   The photos of the lake and water made me think of the dragonflies I see in may backyard.

I love the Work of Art Stamp and Gorgeous  Grunge stamp sets because you can create swashes or splatters of color that look like you water colored or painted on ink.   These I used for the background then stamped the dragonfly from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set and heat embossed with gold as well as the ‘you’ in the sentiment.  To make the rest of the sentiment stand out I used some Washi tape.
