Thank you with a Bunch of Blossoms Flower

The thank you card I created is based on Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the colors of Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Emerald Envy.  I created the flower using the new Bunch of Blossoms Bundle.  The petals and leaves were created with 3 step stamping to create shading and depth then die cut with the Blossom Builder Punch.  The sentiment was created with the Thoughtful Banners Bundle.  This bundle comes with a great stamp set with many sentiments and banner images and the Duet Banner punch.  Together you can create banners with many sentiments.

I used Pop of Pink Washi tape to embellish the bottom of the card.  This card came together quickly.  I hope you’re inspired by the sketch challenge and share your project on join Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Thank you with Botanical Blooms

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo and Dapper Denim.  These are the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up!

I recently had a birthday and and needed to send a thank you card to my friend.  I created this card with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and the sentiment is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set. The layer with the die cut leaf edge I first applied ink to the uncut layer with a brayer.  I inked it up then rolled it off a few times before rolling onto the layer because I wanted a lighter shade of the Dapper Denim to provide contrast to the flowers.  After drying I die cut the leaf edge then adhered to a layer of Dapper Denim.

I used the Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White card stock to created the flowers. The leaves are Dapper Denim.  The Whisper White was a bit stark so I used the dotted stamp from the Timeless Textures set.  I stamped some of the ink off before stamping on some of the dots so the color is of different intensity.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark first then Dapper Denim and heat embossed with retired Iridescent embossing powder to make it sparkle.

I hope my card inspires you to play with these colors!

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.

Give Thanks for Thankful Forest Friends

This week we have a color challenge of Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Cajun Craze.  Perfect colors for a fall or Halloween card.  I used the stamp sets Thankful Forest Friends and Vintage Leaves which have great images for fall cards.  To die cut the leaves I used the Leaflets Framelits.  I fussy cut the fox and for the greeting I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the image and die cut with the 2-1/2″ circle punch.  The background layer I embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing folder.  The Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist stitched satin ribbons are retired from last year.

Many Thanks with a Beautiful Bunch

Inspiration for this week’s challenge comes from the current Stampin Up! Catalog and Idea book from page 92.  I just love the Tangerine Tango with Pool Party and Lost Lagoon!  I used the Brick Wall embossing folder for the background lightly sponged with Pool Party for a little bit of color.  I created a tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  The flower was stamped tone on tone with Tangerine Tango.  I stamped it twice and die cut with the Fun Flower Punch and die cut the center with the 7/8″ Scalloped Punch. The sequins are retired Coastal Cabana but close enough to Pool Party.  The leaves are silver glitter paper.

A Fitting Thank you

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is paper piecing.  This is a fun technique that adds lot of pizzazz to your hand stamp cards, and it’s easy to do!

HSS May Logos-004

All you have to do is stamp your image on paper or cardstock, cut it out and add it to your project.  You can keep it simple,  or use a more detailed stamp, stamp it on different colors and/or patterns of paper and layer your heart out!

For my project I used the Chic Boutique stamp set and the Love Letter DSP to paper piece the dress forms.  I used my Stamp-A-MaJig to position the design on my form then stamped it with Versamark, Classic Black ink then heat embossed it Iridescent Ice Stampin‘ Emboss Powder.  I love this powder because it adds just the right sparkle.  I cut out the dress form images.  I stamped three dress forms on a Very Vanilla Top Note Layer that has been altered to look like a square.  I trimmed the Very Vanilla Top Note square layer by cutting along the perfed edge.  It’ very easy to make this shape.  Click here for  tutorial on creating this fun shape and a circle.  I die cut another shape in Riding Hood Red to layer behind the Very Vanilla.  So easy!  See below for card recipe.
