Playing With Leftovers ~ HSS398


Hello stampers!  Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments newest card sketch challenge.  I've had some of these leftovers laying around on my desk for quite some time.  In fact the only thing I cut for this card was the card base and the background DSP.  Everything else was already cut and stamped.  
The flowers were stamped and cut with Pretty Perennials, the gold holy leaves are cut from Seasonal Swirls dies. The sentiment is from Rustic Retreat. I really kinda like the way it came together!  



Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Happiness Abounds Re-do ~ GDP357


Hey there stampers!  Today's card is a re-do of my card from my last post.  If you recall, I had the idea after my card was completed to use a mask and blend some ink over the white space on the main panel.  I wanted to try it, so I recreated the card only this time I used the colors from Global Design Project.  After all is said and done I think I like both cards!  I'm usually not one that likes a lot of unused space, so this card worked for me.  Now that I'm thinking about it, I should have made a mask with the die cut that comes with the Happiness Abounds die set......gosh, ideas, ideas!  Maybe I'll try one more!!! haha!



Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Happiness Abounds, Artistically Inked
Paper: White, Tahitian Tide, Black
Ink: Memento black; Tahitian Tide, Flirty Flamingo, and Pool Party Blends; Pool Party
Accessories: Blossoming Happiness dies, Glossy Dots Assortment, Basic Patterns Decorative Mask, silver trimmed black 1/4" ribbon.

Fall Happiness Abounds Sympathy ~ HSS396

Hello stampers!  Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments August color challenge using a nice fall-ish combo of Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, and Bermuda Bay.  


I colored up a bunch of flowers from my Happiness Abounds set in Calypso Coral blends and Rich Razzleberry blends.  The flowers were so soft and pretty in this layout that I thought a sympathy sentiment might go nicely.  The sentiments are from Very Best Occasions featured in the mini catalog. 

 Do you ever look at your finished card and then have a brilliant idea that could have stepped it up a notch?  That's what happened to me with this one.  After it was all finished I wished I had softly sponged a ink over a mask to fill in the left side of the main panel.  I may have to try this card again, maybe in different colors, and use a stencil.  


Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

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.
