Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Flamingo – HSS294

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an inspiration challenge.  It’s a really fun one and I hope you participate!

My card today starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I stamped the palm leaves from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink to the right of the cardstock and then wrapped around some Powder Pink ribbon into a bow.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Stamparatus to create my flamingo.  I used Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink ink and Memento Black ink.

I matted this on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

I needed a bunch of customer thank you cards, so decided to use the new Varied Vases Bundle to assembly line them.  The new ribbon from the Annual Catalog was my inspiration for the color choices.

My card start off with Thick Whisper white cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock to stamp the images on.  I first stamped just the outline of each of the vases and the flowers in Memento Black ink from the Varied Vases Bundle.

I colored the vases in uses Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, and Gorgeous Grape ink.  I used a Blender Pen to color in the flowers.  I stamped the outline of the center vase in Memento Black ink on Gorgeous Grape cardstock and cut it out using the coordinating Vases Builder Punch.

I matted it on Granny Apple Green cardstock and tied a bow around the bottom.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

I did the same process using Merry Merlot, Poppy Parade, and Mango Melody colors…

As well as Mint Macaron, Shaded Spruce, and Balmy Blue.

Stampin’ Up! Artisan Textures Congratulations

Back in the day Gorgeous Grunge was my go-to stamp for an “artistic flare.”

So when I saw the new Artisan Textures Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog – I didn’t want it – I needed it!

My card starts off with Fresh Fig cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle embossing folder.  I next matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on Mint Macaron cardstock.

I used the Artisan Textures Stamp Set to first stamp the larger “splotch” in Mint Macaron ink.  Then I stamped the “sponged” image in Grapefruit Grove ink.  Lastly I stamped the “dotted” image in Versamark ink, which I sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Fresh Fig ink on Whisper White cardstock and tucked a trimmed Grapefruit Grove colored doily behind it.

I wound some Gold Thread behind the sentiment and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then added a Grapefruit Grove pearl from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and a sequin from the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Expressions Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Grapefruit Grove cardstock which I embossed using the Basket Weave embossing folder.

Next I matted a panel of Petal Pink cardstock on Whisper White cardstock and then a pattern from the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper on Basic Black cardstock.

Next I covered the “you make me” from the sentiment from the Friendly Expressions stamp set with washi tape, inked it up with Memento Black ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut this out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Then I reversed it and this time covered the “proud” from the sentiment with washi tape, inked it up with Memento Black ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on Petal Pink cardstock.  I adhered this over the oval and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to finish it off.

Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames Congrats Card

For my friends in the United States – Happy 4th of July!

Hope you have a great day and stay safe!

My card today is all about the layers!

I. Love. Layers.

My card starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I then stamped the frame from the Floral Frames Stamp Set in Stazon Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I then used a Blender Pen and Berry Burst, Granny Apple Green, and Soft Sea Foam Inks to color it in.

Note:  When using a Blender Pen, ideally you would use watercolor paper.  However, I goofed and stamped on Whisper White cardstock so I just made sure to lightly color in the images and not go over the paper too much.

I then created the layering using Berry Burst Ribbon, Mini Gold Sequins, a banner I cut out from Vellum cardstock using the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I also cut out images using the coordinating Foliage Frame Framlits and Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I added some Pearls around the frame.

Lastly I used the Sunshine Wishes Framelits and Gold Foil Paper to cut out the sentiment.  I adhered it down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing – Welcome Baby – Handmade Sentiments #293

This week’s Handmade Sentiments Challenge is a color challenge.  I sure hope you’ll play along!

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Subltes Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Simple Stripes embossing folder.  I matted this on Daffodil Delight cardstock and wound around a Silver/Pool Party Baker’s Twine bow and tucked some Silver Thread under the bow.

Next I stamped the rhino from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored him in using the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker and used the Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in the bird.  I cut it out using the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits.

I used the same thinlits to cut out some branches in Pool Party cardstock to tuck behind the rhino.  I stamped the “welcome” in Smoky Slate ink and “Little One” in Pool Party ink from the Animal Outing Stamp Set, fussy cut them out, and adhered them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

A ton of Stampin’ Up! news came out yesterday – So much to say, so little time.

Get my weekly newsletter so you don’t miss anything!!!

It’s just so much excitement, it feels like Christmas!

I kept my card super simple today.  If you’re in a pinch and need a quick card – let the Designer Series Paper do all the work…add a sentiment, some ribbon, and a little extra detail and you’re done!

My card starts off with So Saffron cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to adhere to the top part of the card.

*This Designer Series Paper is included in the Buy 3, Get 1 Sale going on right now in July!!

I matted another pattern on Night of Navy cardstock and then wound around a Night of Navy Baker’s Twine bow around.  I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set just below the twine.

Lastly I cut out two butterflies, one in Night of Navy and the other in Mango Melody, using the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies.

Enjoy!
