Reason for the Season Christmas Card

An elegant Christmas card is what I created, inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Very Vanilla, Metallic Gold and Basic Black.  I used the bundle with the Festive Flower Builder Punch and the Reason for the Season Stamp set.  With the Festive Flower Builder Punch you can create beautiful Poinsettias like the one I created from Vellum paper.

I stamped Vellum paper with Gold Encore ink.   For the center of the flower I used retired embellishment Frosted Finishes from last year’s Holiday Catalog.  Behind the flower I used Gold trim cording.  The corners of the layers (Very Black, Gold Foil) of the card I punched with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark on a 1-1/2″ x 4″ strip of Very Vanilla then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

Elementary Elegance Birthday Card

I have quite a few friends with birthdays this month and one of the cards I made was inspired by PPA’s color challenge of Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla.  Beautiful colors!  For the Birthday stamped image here’s a sneak peak of the Elementary Elegance stamp set in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  Sale-a-bration begins later this month on January 24 through March 31.  During this event you earn free products from the catalog with every $50 purchase.  How cool is that!

The Birthday frame is heat embossed with pewter embossing powder.  The sentiment is stamped in Not Quite Navy and clear embossed.  I used the Elegant Lines embossing folder for the background and butterflies die cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge 12

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge that comes to us from Stampin’ Up!’s May issue of Success magazine for demonstrators.  This magazine is packed with ideas and tips for running your SU business and did I mention it’s free.  The colors featured on the sketch are new colors Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla.  I love the color combination.  I haven’t received my sample of new colors so I used So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla to create my card.  Post your creation at HSS.
