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!

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 382 – Inspiration Challenge

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

Here is my take on it.

This card is a great little fun fold. Start with a regular 5-1/2″ X 8-1/2″ piece of cardstock, but score it at 2″, 3-1/8″, 5 3/8”, and 6 1/2” instead of in half. This will allow you to fold it in this cool pop up manner.

Next I adhered the two 1 3/4” x 5 1/4” petal pink pieces of Sunshine & Rainbow DSP ( a FREE SAB item) to either side of the card front and the 2” x 5 1/4” Navy piece to the front.

To create the front card candy I die cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and a piece of Layering Vellum using the largest label in the Tasteful Labels dies. I adhered them together in opposite directions (Navy horizontal, Vellum vertical). The I stamped the cute van from the FREE Driving By stamp set using Memento Black Ink, coloured it with Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it. Then I stamped the palm trees from Timeless Tropical using Night of Navy Ink and die cut them. Next, I stamped the thank you sentiment from Timeless Tropical using Night of Navy Ink on a 3/4″ X 2″ strip of Basic White cardstock. I used mini glue dots and Dimensionals to adhere all the bits to the card candy and then glued it to the center layer of the card front only. The light pink adhesive-backed Hexagons were the finishing touch.

All of the supplies I used are listed below. You can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 379 – Inspiration Challenge

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

To create this card I started by stamping the word Merry in Crumb Cake Ink on my Crumb Cake card base. Then I embossed a piece of Basic White ( 4″ X 2-3/4″) using the Checks & Dots embossing folder. I tied a piece of the Playful Pets twine trim around the Basic White like I was wrapping a parcel.

Finally I added some painted holly leaves and Gold Holly embellishments and the sentiment tag – just like I was decorating a gift.

I LOVE this set and just can’t stop creating with it.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #376 – Inspiration Challenge

I am SO EXCITED to be a new member of the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge Design Team! This week’s challenge is an inspiration challenge. I loved the purple, blue and green watercolour look so I was thrilled to spend some time playing in my craft room with water painters.

To create my card I used a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. I find it to be the perfect paper when you want to create some watercolour art with out the texture of water colour paper.

I started by using blending brushes to apply a soft Highland Heather and Balmy Blue background. Then I used my water painter and some Balmy Blue reinker to splatter blue dots on the cardstock.

Next I added my leaves. I did this by using Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen reinkers to create water colours. I then used my water painter to paint my leaf stamps and I then stamped the painted image onto the cardstock. This technique keeps the water on the page to a minimum since I wasn’t actually using water colour paper.

Once that background dried I stamped the deer from Peaceful Deer on to my image using stamped off Soft Suede. Then I coloured him in with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and added the eye and nose with Light Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. I am not a brave enough watercolourer to paint the deer as well – although I think the look worked well enough.

I finished the card with a 3D Wintry Embossing Folder Background, my current favourite ribbon (White Glittered Organdy) and a sentiment tag from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

I hope you give painting your solid stamped images a try on the Shimmery Cardstock, it’s a great cheater way of having watercolour skills.
