Inspired by Nature

My card this week is inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments inspirational challenge.  The photo below has so many wonderful images.  My project for this week is dedicated to Minnie Cieslak , Anne Marie Hile and Amy Lazzell.  These wonderful SU demos took time out of their day this past Saturday to come to my workshop.  They were great support in helping my guests with their make ‘n takes and providing lots of tips and ideas.  It was a fun and inspirational afternoon.  I’m so lucky to have them as friends and also as fellow design team members.  So hop on over to HHS and be inspired and also take a look at the wonderful inspiration provided by the design team.

I created this hybrid card and round box with My Digital Studio.  I used the digital Botanical Gazette DSP and the digital Nature Walk stamp set.  I love how easy it is to create beautiful cards.   I also love that almost every Tuesday there are new downloads.  Tuesdays now have become a favorite day.

No Stamping Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to create a project with dies…any dies.  With the Big Shot I created this card inspired by Sandi Maciver.  I used shabby chic colors again – Rose Red, Crumb Cake, and Pink Pirouette.  The base of the card was created with the Scallop Square die them embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The Crumb Cake layer was created with the Circle Scallops #2 die then embossed with the Elegant Lines embossing folder.  The flower was created with the Cherry Blossom Embosslit  and the butterflies were created with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  Embosslits Dies are great because they simultaneously cut and emboss.  Love the Embosslits.  The swirls were created with Swirls Scribble Sizzlits die.

For some shimmer I  smooched the card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch.  I hope you can see the shimmer.  I love this Vanilla Shimmer Smooch because it’s just the right amount of shine and so easy to apply.  Make sure you use the Color Catcher to prevent your work area from ink overspray.  I then embellished with basic pearls and Victoria crochet trim ribbon.  Very easy card to make.

It’s a great card to demo at workshops because it shows the versatility of the Big Shot.  I hope my card inspires you to get out your dies out and participate in the challenge.

Flirty Valentine Corset Card

For this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments ribbon and lace challenge I created this corset template.  The template is sized to fit into a SU medium envelope (5-3/4″ x 4-3/8″).  I traced the corset on Very Vanilla CS then ran it through my Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and sponged it with Riding Hood Red ink.  I used the 5/8″ Victoria crochet trim as lace.  I put a strip of stick tape on the back of the crochet trim and pleated it as I adhered the trim.  I used my Crop-a-dile Big Bite to set the 1/8″ eyelets and used grosgrain ribbon to lace the corset.  The regular hand-held Crop-a-dile will not work because it doesn’t reach.  You can also use a regular eyelet setter kit.  It was a lot fun creating this card.  The possibilities are endless in creating this card.  You can use different embossing folders, different colored card stock, clear rhinestones and different ribbons.

I create these as invitations for hens night, bachelorette or bridal showers.  Got to my Etsy shop to order and request your custom color.
