Be Cool Penguin ~ HSS395, GDP355


Hello Stampers!  Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge for the month of August.  I used the animal theme from Global Design Project to help me along with my card today.  I chose to use the cute little penguin set called Penguin Place. I used the four skinny columns in the sketch as shaker windows and filled them with blue sequins from the For Everything Fancy sequin set.  I also love the fun Polished Pink and Tahitian Tide color combo.  A little bit of Daffodil Delight for the penguins feet and beak, and some Granny Apple Green on the trees help break up the colors a bit.  




This was a fun project!  Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Christmas Glamper Greetings ~ HSS394


Hello Stampers!  Today's post is for Hand Stamped Sentiments photo inspiration challenge.  What a fun one!  I don't have the new camper die set from Stampin' Up called Tree Lot dies, but I did have the retired set called Glamper Greetings.  I still love this set and was thrilled to have a reason to pull it back out!  What a fun inspiration!  I hope to see many of you play along with us this week.

Here For You Scene ~ HSS391, CTC373


Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge #391.  I was really drawn to the bottom left photo of the green meadow and lake.  All these pictures say summer and you can't go wrong being inspired by any of them!  
Anyway, I went back to a couple oldie but goodie sets....Waterfront and Snow Front. I used the dark green mountain, lake and trees from Snow Front and the rest from Waterfront. 
I was looking for a sketch to go along with my card but didn't find any this week, however, over at CASEing the Catty the challenge was to case any card from the catalog that had embossing.  I chose the pansy card from the photo below (on page 15 of the new catalog).

The original pansy card has an embossed background and then ink has been sponged over the top.  I did that on my card using the crackle background stamp and Tahitian Tide ink.  I also chose to put my sentiment toward the top of the card as to not cover up my scenery. 


I'm really pleased with the way this one came out.  It is going to a friend of mine who recently lost her dad.  I just want her to know that she is still being thought of! The sentiments are from retired Blossoming Basket and Friendly Hello.

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Otterly Awesome Grad ~ HSS390, JAI605


Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge for May.  We could use all or any three brand new In Colors.  I chose to go with Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, and Orchid Oasis.  I added just a splash of Sweet Sorbet in the fish.  
I immediately thought of water with these colors and I'm smack in the middle of graduation season, so I decided to make a cute, fun graduation card.  The Otters for Awesome Otters (retired) made a cute pair and the little graduation cap just fits on top of the otter's head.  The sentiment that comes with the set is perfect for a grad sentiment too, I think. 
Inspiration also came from the photo at Just Add Ink this week. That blue water is just so beautiful!


I started by stamping the Amazing Congratulations stamp in Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis on Tahitian Tide cardstock.  I also stamped the Otters in Tahitian Tide ink on the top and bottom of the Congratulations. I sponged some Starry Sky ink over the otters with my blending brush.  I then stamped the otters a second time on scrap white cardstock in Memento ink, colored them with my Blends markers and fussy cut them out.  I also stamped the little grad cap for Round Of Applause (retired) and fussy cut it out.  The colored otters were then adhered onto the stamped otters.  I glued on the grad cap and added the otterly awesome sentiment.  A little bit of linen thead and some sequin accessories tie the whole card together.   
I adhered the main panel to a dry embossed background of Orchid Oasis and mounted it all on a base of Starry Sky.

Floral Canvas ~ HSS389


Today's project comes by way of Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  All my inspiration came from the Happiness Abounds Bundle.  I just love the canvas painted look of the flowers and DSP.  And, this couldn't have come together easier....I just die cut the flowers from the DSP and arranged them on the card!  Easy Peasy!





Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
