You’re Absolutely Amazing

The card I created this week is CASED from a card featured on page 98 of the new Annual Catalog using the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge colors of – Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Bumblebee.  Not only does the Annual Catalog feature wonderful products but also a variety of projects showing how the stamps, dies and embellishments may be used.  

For the background I embossed a Whisper White layer with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder then sponged Bumblebee ink.  I also die cut two strips of Whisper White with the scallop die.  I stamped the outline of the flower full strength then stamped stamped off for stamping the inside of the flower.  The sentiment is also from the stamp set and stamped in Flirty Flamingo and die cut with coordinating die. 

The leaves I stamped  in Momento black then die cut them with the die.  The one leaf on the left is stamped then fussy cut.  For embellishments I used the Gold Gilded Gems and Gold Fine Art ribbon.

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.

A Splendid Day for Sending Hugs

I used the Stampin’ UP! Splendid Thoughts stamp set and dies to create my card. The background layer I color washed with Bermuda Bay and a water painter. I let dry then stamped with the leaves. I stamped the larger leaves with Black Memento and water colored with Bermuda Bay using a water painter then die cut two of these. I also die cut the open leaf foliage in Rich Razzleberry and Basic White. I also stamped foliage in Calypso Coral then die cut. I arranged the foliage in the middle with glue dots and dimensionals and added gold trim ribbon. I stamped the sentiment then die cut using the stitched half circle from the bundle.

Stampin’ Up Hues of Happiness Card

I had just received the Hues of Happiness and was so excited to play with it. I love the paper and stamps. I used it to create a card with this week’s sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I embossed my white card base with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.I then used a layer of the Hues of Happiness DSP along with strips of the DSP. I used Flirty Flamingo as a solid back drop to the sentiment layer. I used the edge die on the sentiment layer to add interest. I also stamped one of the flowers with Memento Black then colored it with retired Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. To embellish I used the coordinating Glossy Dots Assortment.

A Pocketful of Sunshine with Daisy Delight

I finally got the opportunity to create with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set and framelits.  I love how you can create a pocket and decorate it.  I die cut the card from Night of Navy, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  The card I created was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge of So Saffron, Always Artichoke and Night of Navy.  I’m also loving the Daisy Delight bundle.  I love how the punch coordinates with the daisy stamp to create these beautiful daisies.  I used them to decorate the pocket.  I also added the leaves from the Rose Wonder and Flourish Thinlets.

The centers of the flowers were heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  For more sparkle I colored the petals of the daisies with clear Wink of Stella.  The background is glossy  paper sponged with Always Artichoke.

A Daisy Delight Birthday!

I just received my Stampin’ Up! catalog pre-order!  Included was the Daisy Delight bundle.  The bundle includes the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch.  You too will be able to order this bundle starting June 1st.

I created this birthday card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder and Pool Party.

This card was fast and easy.  I stamped the daisies then punched them out with the daisy punch.  I punched out two daisies to make one full one.

I used the 3/4″ circle punch to punch out the centers out of silver glimmer paper.  The background is embossed with the Softly Falling textured folder.   The greeting banner is stamped on a 1″ strip.  The end is die cut using the Banner Triple punch.  I then added basic rhinestones to give it more sparkle.
