Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 385 – Inspiration Challenge

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a beautiful Inspiration Challenge. Take a look at all the spring inspired cards created by our design team and then join the challenge.

I love creating springtime cards! The colours, the images it is all so fresh and beautiful. I especially love to add white backgrounds to my spring cards to keep them light and bright.

This background was embossed with the Brick and Mortar 3D embossing folder, then I used a blending brush to add a bit of Highland Heather, finally I splattered a bit of Highland Heather on the background using a water painter.

Although the Brilliant Wings Dies and Brilliant Rainbows Dies that I used are not part of the Savings in Bloom sale – they both work well with the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine which is 20% until the end of March 2022!

Here are all the Savings in Bloom products:

I chose to use the All Squared Away bundle ( which is currently on sale – 20% off) to create a card for the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge (#GDP334).

March 2022 Online Workshop Cards

This month for my FREE Online Workshop I am playing around with a fun technique I learned from watching Melody Hyde.

It is a way to use decorative masks with a water spritzer to add some detail to solid stamps. So fun! Grab some ink, decorative masks, water spritzer and paper towel and start creating with me.

This weekend only ( until Monday, March 14 – 5pm pacific time) I am offering a door prize draw and ordering special. If you live in Canada and place a $60 order using my host code you will also receive the make’n’take packet to make these 3 cards and a free pack of spritzers. Shop here: https://www.stampinup.ca?hostcode=RA9VCDQ9

My door prize draw to win these 3 cards that I created will take place Monday evening. Enter here!

I created 3 different cards using this fun technique.

For the first two I stamped solid images using the Hello Beautiful stamps.

For the Daffodil Delight card I created a template using the hexagons from the Beautiful Shapes dies then applied my ink pad directly to the card layer.

Once I had my solid images stamped, I cover the layer with a decorative mask, spritzed with water, dabbed off the excess with a paper towel and set aside to dry.

The key to this technique is using Shimmery White Paper instead of regular card stock. Watch my video below to see how I spritzed the layers to achieve the fun patterns.

If you enjoyed this video, please leave a comment below and share the video with fellow stampers. Thanks!

The dimensions for the card pieces are:

Thick Basic White card base – 5-1/2″ X 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″

Shimmery White Cardstock – 4-1/2″ X 3-1/2″

Basic Black Cardstock – size dependent on the label you will be die cutting

Here is the full list of supplies I used:


I have another perk to ordering with me in the month of March – any order over $65cdn, I am also emailing out an amazing 37 card Tutorial Bundle. Just use the host code below.

The Hello Beautiful bundle pairs nicely with our Savings in Bloom promotion as well.
