Isn’t it Romantic

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments there’s a big announcement.  We’ve added five more designers to our Design Team.  We’re so excited!  Please hop on over and welcome them by leaving a comment.  Also we have a wonderful color challenge with the romantic colors of red, black and ivory or white.  You can use any shade of red – Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Riding Hood Red or any other shade of red you prefer combine it with Black Whisper White or Very Vanilla.

I’ve been wanting to make different versions of corset cards and I CASED this corset shape card from Ink Stained Roni.  Hop over to her blog to get the template and other ideas.  The card base is Very Vanilla and I covered the front of the card with the music notes background from the Newsprint DSP and I sponged the edges with Riding Hood Red.  I’m down to a couple of sheets and I must buy more Newsprint DSP.  I’ve also been playing with the Red Glitter paper and I think it’s fabulous.  It’s perfect for adding that touch of bling.  I punched the hearts with the Small Heart punch and I also used my favorite embellishments – Victoria Crochet Trim and Vintage brads.

The candle is stamped with the medallion and flourish from the Artistic Etching stamp set.  I also added a red glitter heart and crochet trim.  Stamping on candles is very easy and there is a step-by-step tutorial on  SCS.  I hope you’re inspired by this week’s color challenge and show us your romantic side on HSS.

I also love the challenges over at PPA so I submitted my project.   There are so many talented crafters that participate.  Check them out.

Hand Stamped Sentiments – Anything but a card challenge

As mentioned in my previous post I purchased this template from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  This is the other basket you get along with the pedestal basket template.  I am also making this basket for our Anything but a card challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I would love to see your creations posted at our challenge blog.

This basket is very easy to make and will be a great Easter gift.

Fancy Easter Basket

I recently purchased this template from Waltzingmouse Stamps and I love it.  You get two basket versions.  One tall basket like in my photos below or a small basket.  You choose.  But whichever one you decide to make they will turn out fabulous.  I am also submitting my basket for PPA35 – Anything but a card challenge.  I used the Sending Love DSP.  I am sad to say I’m down to my last few sheets.  I need to order more before the April 30th deadline.  On may May 1st a new mini catalog will take its place.  I am so excited.  The new catalog is full of new products and you’ll want them all like me.  So if you want any of the products in the current occasions mini, order soon before April 30th.  Now on to my project.  I am making a few of these baskets for gifts and for my Easter table decorations.  I decorated eggs with the Eggcellent kit which I am sorry to say is sold out!  But the basket with these eggs will be for my Easter table.  I’ll fill the ones as gifts with chocolate eggs.  Now who wouldn’t want a basket filled with chocolate eggs.
