Stamping Sunday Blog Hop – Summery Citrus

Stamping Sunday blog hop

Hi! Thanks for hopping by! I am very flattered to have been asked to be a guest on this edition of the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop!

The theme for this  week is to showcase the Autumn holiday catalogue designer series papers in ways that feature them in year long projects.  The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is one of my favourites in the holiday catalogue. Not only does it have beautiful autumn imagery but the reverse side of the papers has lovely watercolour and graphic designs.

My card and 3D project for today’s  Stamping Sunday  blog hop uses one of the watercolor style pages as the feature background. I combined the Painted Autumn designer series paper with the Lemon Zest stamp and punch bundle to make this summery citrus card and treat bag duo, perfect for some citrus candies or a fragrant lemon-lime candle.

Both the card and the treat bag have clear heat embossed lemon-lime twist limes and feature the glitter enamel dots for extra shimmer. The lemon limes punch out perfectly with the 1 3/4″ circle punch.  You may also spot another holiday catalogue goodie on this card. the edge of the DSP was cut using one of the NEW card front builder dies.

The treat bag was made using the gift bag punch board and a 4″ x 10″ piece of DSP. The “for you” was die cut using one of the mini treat bag thinlits dies and is cut out of another of the watercolour Painter Autumn DSP sheets.

Spooky Cat – Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenge #002 – Stampin’ Up! Handmade Card

Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenge #002

Welcome to another Inspire.Create Challenge! This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge. You can find the sketch below. My design team card for this challenge was inspired by my desire to play with the Spooky Cat stamp set and show off the Halloween Designer Series Paper. The sketch back ground reminded me of a z-fold card and I was happy that I was able to bring the my 3D vision of the sketch to life. Here is the sketch for this week’s Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenge #002:

When I made this card I had actually only planned to come down to my craft room to pick out the paper and end up playing around and finishing the whole thing before going to bed. The fun thing about this bundle is that the cat punch and cat stamp not only co-ordinate with each other but also with the designer series paper!

I stamped on the designer series paper with versamark ink and embossed with copper embossing powder. I used the cat punch to cut out one of the embossed cats as well as punch out a cat in the vellum. I love how the copper embossing shines through the cat shaped hole in the vellum. I used the copper and black metallic threads, black rhinestones and vintage lace trim to finish off the embellishments on this card.

Here is my finished Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenge #002 Spooky Cat card:
