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.

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 # 377 – Sketch Challenge

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

As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use the great circle die from the Painted Labels Dies, but I wanted to keep it a bit soft so I cut it out of a piece of Evening Evergreen (2021 – 2023 In Colour) Shimmer Vellum. I then added some Sprig punches that I cut out of the excess iridescent paper from the Wonderful Snowflakes. I just can’t stand to waste any of this beautiful shimmery white.

Some other details that I added to this card were some 2021 – 2023 In Colour Jewels and a piece of silver Simply Elegant Trim. A ton of shimmer and glimmer to balance with the very subtle Soft Succulent cardstock and the gorgeous Painted Christmas DSP.

Once I had finished designing this Christmas card I took the exact same idea and created some cards for my fabulous Ink Pad Pals team members. Here is the result.

Again I used the 2021 – 2023 In Colour Shimmer Vellum, but this time I grabbed the Pale Papaya. It was a bit too light in colour for the DSP I chose – so I used my blending brushes to add some Calypso Coral to the back of the vellum.

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.

If your order is over $100 cdn or you are looking for more stamping friends, you may want to consider joining my Ink Pad Pals team. We have a ton of fun together, an active and inspirational fb group, monthly virtual stamping nights, team prizes, and more. Plus right now ( until Nov 30) the Starter Kit is on sale for only $100cdn – no shipping!!
