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.

Coast to Coast Creators Blog Hop – June 2022

It’s the 14th of the month – time for another Coast to Coast Creators Blog Hop! This one features all new product from the 2022-2023 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue!!  Hop around see all the amazing cards created by our team members!  Leave a little love and then come back to see us again on the 14th next month!

I created this card using leftover paper strips in all the blues (Pool Party, Night of Navy, Orchid Oasis, Pacific Point, Starry Sky and Tahitian Tide) and the Adventurous Journey stamp set – one of my favourites from the new catalogue since I love kayaking.

Once the paper strips were glued to the card front I used Versamark to stamp the rings and lily pads so that it would “match” all the shades of blue. I used stamped off Tahitian Tide Ink to create the rings on the Basic White layer.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 387 – Colour Challenge

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #387 is a gorgeous Colour Challenge. Take a look at all the calm, cool cards created by our design team and then join the challenge.

As soon as I saw this colour combo I thought of the fantastic Waves of Inspiration stamp set that Stampin’ Up! just released. I paired it up with the limited time only Waves of the Ocean 12X12 DSP and since the beautiful Waves Rhinestones are sold out – I used my dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends to colour some of our Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

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

Although you can find the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in our up coming Annual catalogue – the DSP is limited edition and will be going away on May 2nd! Make sure to grab yours now!
