Thinking of You with Season of Chic

Happy 2023! Hand Stamped Sentiments is back with a color challenge of Petal Pink, Pool Party and Mango Melody. Love these colors together which inspired me to create a card using the Season of Chic bundle and Distressed Gold Specialty Paper.

This Season of Chic bundle is versatile for making many types of cards for all seasons. Hence the name Season Chic. I created this thinking of you card using the seashells.

I embossed the Pool Party layer with the Time Worn Type Embossing Folder. I then die cut the netting using the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. followed by stamping the shells with Mango Melody and Petal Pink on Basic White then die cutting. I also die cut the shells and leaves from Petal Pink paper. The front shell I die cut two shells the rim in Pool Party and the inside from Basic White then water-colored in Pool Party. The leaves on the right side of the card I die cut from Mango Melody. The small shell on the left side I die cut from the Distressed Gold. The sentiment I heat embossed in gold then embellished and die cut using the Tailor Made Tag dies then embellished with gold Elegant Trim. The rest of the card is embellished with Sold Faceted Gems.

A Fitting Florets Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Cherry Cobble, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. These colors are perfect for Christmas cards so I decided to create a Christmas card with the Fitting Florets Collection.

There are two stamp sets, dies, paper and embellishments in Fitting Florets collection. I used the Soft Succulent as my card base then used a Cherry Cobbler layer followed by the DSP. I colored the berries on the DSP with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ blends. For the frame and sprigs I die cut using the Bough Punch and Fitting Florests die from the frame out of the Distressed Gold paper. I love how the gold looks antiqued. The greeting I heat embossed with gold then colored the buds on the sprigs with Cherry Cobble blends. For embellishing I added a bow of retired 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and retired Cherry Cobbler rhinestones from the Holiday Basic Jewels.

Deepest Sympathy with Painted Poppies

My card this week is a sympathy card created with the stamp sets Painted Poppies, Peaceful Moments and Heal your Heart. I also created this card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Pool Party, Starry Night and Pumpkin Pie.

I started with a Basic White card base and stamped the texture with the stamp from the Painted Poppies set in Starry Night., The Pumpkin Pie die cut poppy is framed with silver foil and layered over Shimmery White card stock. The leaves were die cut from Starry Night and Pool Party. The Shimmery White layer is framed with Pool Party and Starry Night. The inside of the card I stamped with the poppies images from the Painted Poppies and stamped with the sentiment from Sale-a-bration Heal Your Heart set.

Friends are like Seashells, Beautiful

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge of gorgeous Stampin’ Up Colors Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather and Orchid Oasis. These colors to me are beach colors so I decided to use the Friends are like Seashells stamp set, Seashell dies and Seashells 3D embossing folder. Used together they create beautiful textured cards. The background gradient I created using the blending brushes to blend Orchid Oasis at the top, Highland Heather in the center then Coastal Cabana on the bottom. The order I used the products to create the shells layer are I die cut the seashells, stamped the seashells then embossed. When I stamped the seashells I used the blending brushes to apply ink to the stamp then stamp the image. Using this technique created beautiful gradients of color.

I finished the card by embellishing with beautiful Opal Rounds. I love they are iridescent just like bubbles.

Hello with Sun Prints

The foliage were stamped in Pacific Point, Night of Navy and Gray Granite then die cut with Natural Prints Dies. The smaller leaves were die cut from Silver foil.

Flowering Tulips

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink and Pumpkin Orange. These colors made me think of tulips so I used the Flowering Tulips bundle to create this card. I also CASED my card from Stephanie Kauffman. It was fun to make the tulips for this card.

After die cutting the tulip flowers I left the die on the cut flowers and sponged color on them then put them together.

I followed Stephanie’s instructions for making the trellis which was made with a square die. Here are the pictures she posted on her FB post on how she made the trellis. What I did to create the trellis was to measure the square die from the retired stitched shapes then I drew the trellis using Illustrator. You can download the PDF .

Gorgeous Leaves Thank You Card

I’m so in love with the Gorgeous Leaves bundle. The stamp set and coordinating dies are so easy to use and you can create many different types of cards from collage cards to simple one layer cards.

My card was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry, Smokey Slate and CASED from Amy Koenders Gorgeous Leaves card.

I started with a Basic White card base then stamped the leaves with Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry and Smoke Slate. After stamping the leaves I embossed the background with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. The sentiment from Hand Penned Petal stamp set I stamped with Versamark on a die cut label from the Tasteful Label dies then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The large Misty Moonlight leaf, Silver foil small leaf an Rich Razzleberry twig I die cut using the Intricate Leaves dies, embellished with silver twine from the Simply Elegant trim basic rhinestones colored with Rich Razzleberry, Smokey Slate and Misty Moonlight Stampin Blends.

Hello with Sunflowers

The leaves I stamped with Mossy Meadow on Old Olive card stock. The other foliage I die cut from brushed gold foil. The DSP is from the In Good Taste Design Series Paper. The white frame is die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. The card I then embellished with Brushed Metallic Adhesive dots and Fine Art Ribbon.
