Hello stampers!  Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge #440.

I decided to go neutral on this one, stamping and coloring on Basic Beige. I love the way it turned out, especially set against the Country Woods DSP.
 I already know this is a stamp set I'll be reaching for over and over!

Shabby Perched Bird~ HSS438, CTC469


Hello Stampers!  Today's post is for Hand Stamped Sentiments photo inspirations challenge.  Some call it a mood board.  It was my turn to pick the images for this challenge and I've been so excited to see what everyone creates from this one!  I just love these gorgeous spring/summer colors and images.
I decided to play with the image of the bird and use the colors suggested.  I made mine shabby chic by using vanilla cardstock, distressing and distressed looking images from Notes of Nature.  
Casing the Catty challenged us to use CASE a card from the Mix and Match section of the new catalog.  I chose the card from the photo below, card on page 18.

I'm also playing along with Tic Tac Toe Challenge #245, using Green, Die-cut, and Outdoors.

Spring Flowers ~ HSS435


Hey stampers!  Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments Photo Inspiration challenge for April.
I was drawn to the colorful floral wreath on the weathered blue barn wood background.
I started with a piece of Azure Afternoon, ran it through the emboss & cut machine with the Timber 3D folder.  Next, I took my white ink and brushed the whole pad across the raised woodgrain.  I added a bit of sponged Crumb Cake on there here and there to mimic the weathered wood.  I also distressed the edges to make it look more "weathered".
I stamped and cut a bunch of different flowers from Two Tone Flora stamps and die set and arranged them into a pretty bouquet.  
A linen thread bow and a few little brass butterflies as finishing touches and this card was done!




Here's a list of my supplies...
Stamps: Two Tone Flora, Blessing of Home
Ink: Gorgeous Grape, Orchid Oasis, Melon Mambo, Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple green, Lemon Lolli, Craft White
Paper: Gorgeous Grape, Starry Sky, Azure Afternoon, White
Accessories: Two Tone Flora dies, Brass Butterflies, Linen thread, Timber 3D folder
