I sure hope you will join me at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week for the Monochromatic Challenge. For my card I used products from the new Stampin' Up Idea Book and Catalog. Two of my favorite new colors are Pool Party and Island Indigo and a fav new stamp set, My Friend. I used VersaMark Ink to stamp the images and heat them set using Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. The sparkle of this card in real life is outta sight! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used on this card, please let me know. I can be emailed at email@example.com. I'd love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week is to feature banners (using a pennant shape). I kinda did some out of the box thinking on this one and used the pennant shapes from the Pennant Die as the leaves for the flower door hanger that I created. The flower idea came from Lee Conrey using the Flower Folds Die. I used Bashful Blue with Wisteria Wonder sponged on the edges. The pennant die used for the leaves is Certainly Celery CS sponged with Always Artichoke ink. If you'd like to purchase any of the supplies used in this project, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'd love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

The challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to make something with stitching or faux stitching. I think my creativity went out the window with this one.....not my best card, I think...LOL This is my version of faux cross-stitch. Using Pink Pirouette, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla. I used a stamp set from the new IBC Best Friends Forever. Although you can't see it I added Iridiscent Ice Embossing Powder to the heart.,,,IRL it hs many sparkles! I'd love to be your Stampin Up! Demonstrator, please email me at email@example.com.

Isn't this little guy just the cutest? I hope you will join me with your creative talents at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week for the Back to School Challenge. Other than the card base (Blushing Bride) and the first layer (Basic Gray), I used scraps to create with (Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla). I used a the Tasteful Trim Die and a few punches, but mostly cut the shapes free hand. I saw a similar card to this somewhere on the Internet a few months ago. I hope I did it justice. This would make a really cute scrapbook page also. Hmmmm an idea blossoms! If you have questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we are have a Fancy Folds Chalenge. It is really going to be fun to see what all our participants come up with. I really didn't know where I was going when I started this card. I started folding and trying to create something different than what I had seen in the past. I' don;t even have a name for the fold I used....maybe y'all can help me figure out what I should call it. I used quite a few new products from the new catalog...Lucky Limeade CS, Pool Party CS, Island Indigo Ink, Pool Party and Island Indigo Stampin' Write Markers and Fabulous Florets, Best Friends Forever and Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess set) Stamp Sets....other items include, Always Artichoke Ink, Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon, Shimmer Paint (mixed with alcohol for a mist), Rhinestone Jewels and Whisper White CS. If you are interested in any of the materials I have used in this card, please let me know. I can be reached through email at email@example.com.
