Easter Egg Wreath Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge.  I’m still in Easter card mode so I created this Easter Wreath card.  The eggs are die cut with the Extra Large Oval punch and the images are from the Everybunny stamp set and colored with a blender pen and ink pads.  The solid color eggs are textured with embossing folders and decorated with butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  I also die cut the flowers with Trio and Boho punches.

Fashion Inspired Bay Leaf Square Wreath card

Pals Paper Arts has a Fashion Inspiration {Holiday} challenge this week.  The greenery and the red along with the rich tapestry vest I was inspired to create the card below.  I made a bay leaf square wreath for my card.  I used the Petal Blossoms Builder punch and the Bird Punch.  Behind my wreath I embossed a Very Vanilla  panel with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and sponged it with Gold Encore ink.

The base of my wreath is a  square frame then I sponged the edge of the leaves with Always Artichoke ink and used my Simply Scored to score the leaves.  I then glued the leaves all along the frame.  The holly leaves were created using the Bird Builder punch and the berries are pearls colored with a red Sharpie.  I finished my wreath with Real Red Satin Ribbon and an antique brad.  I then stamped my sentiment and embossed it with gold and curled the banner a bit.

Wishing for Autumn

Here in San Antonio we’ve had record high temperatures.  110 degrees on Sunday!  Unbelievable!  All this heat has made me wish for autumn.  Cooler mornings and days is what everyone in San Antonio is wishing.  I can’t wait.  Later this week the temperature should drop to 90 degrees which will be wonderful.  So much for the weather and on to my project.  Wanting for autumn to arrive I decided this would be my inspiration for this week’s card for Hand Stamped Sentiments Monochromatic Theme Challenge. I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Autumn Splendor to create the leaves for an autumn wreath.  I stamped the leaves with Versamark and Cajun Craze then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  To add more color to the leaves I used my blender pen with Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Calypso Coral.
