Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 392 – Sketch Challenge

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

I used a wide range of pinks to create this card. Blushing Bride cardstock, Melon Mambo Ink, Polished Pink Opal Rounds, and Sweet Sorbet Metallic Woven Ribbon. Not to mention the Flirty Flamingo blooms cut fromt he Hues of Happiness DSP. The stamp set I used for the sentiment was Happiness Abounds from the brand new 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

To add some interest to the background of this card I applied Melon Mambo Ink in a small circular motion using a Blending Brush – then I Picked up some Melon Mambo Ink with a Water Paper and splattered it across the embossed and inked background piece. The ribbon and opals add just the right amount of sparkle to the painted blooms.

All of the supplies I used to create today’s card are listed below, you can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.

As soon as I saw this colour combo I thought of the fantastic Waves of Inspiration stamp set that Stampin’ Up! just released.

I love the way those coloured rhinestones sparkle on the card front.

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.

$13.50

Right now there are so many perks to ordering. You get SAB rewards like the DSP and Driving By stamp set that I used on this card (free items for every $60 or $120 cdn you spend), AND for any order over $65cdn I am also emailing out an amazing 34 card Tutorial Bundle. Just use the host code below.
