Fabulous You

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge to inspire you.  The colors are Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade.  So pretty!

These colors inspired me to use the Fabulous You stamp set.  I had not used the stamp set and it was perfect for a card I had in mind.

I love the shoe image which I inked up with Versamark and Island Indigo and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to create the flowers.  For some sparkle I added the rhinestones.

Join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments and show us your color inspired project.  I can’t wait to see your creation.

Pretty Christmas tag

I love the Perfect Pennant die!  It’s so versatile!  You can make pennants, decorative tags or cards.  I made this tag for PPA’s Tag your it Challenge.  I die cut some shimmer silver paper and embossed it with the Snowburst embossing folder.  I had some retired music DSP from the Love Letter DSP pack and made a fan fold flower.  I cut a 1-1/2 strip of DSP then used the Scallop Trim Border punch on one side.  I scored every 1/4″  and using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool really makes it fast and easy.

To add some sparkle I used Dazzling Details on the fan fold flower.  The silver glimmer snowflake is die cut using the Northern Frost Sizzix strip and decorated with an 8mm pearl.  The pearls are a sneak peek from the upcoming mini occasions catalog.  To hang the pennant or tie to a gift I used Very Vanilla satin ribbon.  Easy to make and so elegant.

A Charming Thank You

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we want to be impressed.  Create any project with dry or heat embossing.  For my project I was inspired by a gift from a dear friend.  She brought it over this evening and I am so fortunate to have such a wonderful friend.  I had a different card planned for this week’s challenge but I’ll show you that card for next week’s challenge.

This card I CASED from my upline Tara Bazata.  I basically used the same layout but changed up a few detail.  I used the Charming stamp set which hasn’t seen ink for a few months.  I stamped the medallion and  embossed the background and used torn edges and sponging to the layers to add more texture.

Flourish Fever

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have Flourish Fever!  What is a flourish you ask?  Well for our challenge it is a decorative image with sweeping or fanciful curves or lines.  I immediately thought of the flourish in the Strength and Hope stamp set and the digital background papers.  I went for the shabby chic style and this is what I created.

I stamped the solid heart in Pretty in Pink from the I (heart) Hearts stamp set then for that sparkle I covered it in Dazzling Diamonds and added the pearls.  I distressed the edges by sponging them with Soft Suede and also using the Cutter Kit to tatter the edges.  The flower layers were scrunched and the edges sponged to distress it.
