DSC#286: Healing Hugs Get Well Soon

Sending a Healing Hugs Get Well Soon card is easy with this beautiful photorealistic flower.

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge for this week it is a “showCASE” Challenge.

I enjoy the “showCASE” challenge because it gives me an opportunity to take an image from the catalog and CaSE it (Copy and Share Everything).

It also gives me an opportunity to try new things…

  • color combination
  • layout or design
  • new stamp sets, tools or embellishments

I strongly encourage you to pull out your catalog and try it! I would love to see the creative projects you come up with!

This week I was inspired by the need for a get well card.

  • I love the vibrant colors used in this card as well as the sentiment.
  • Unfortunately (or fortunately-depending on how you look at it), I don’t have either of the stamp sets (Sorry for Everything and Bunch of Blossoms) used in the original so I opted to try out the new Healing Hugs stamp set.
  • I love the beautiful floral image featured in this set and I know you will too!

Thank you cards never go out of style, at least in my opinion. Today I want to share a quick and simple thank you card I created with the new Accented Blooms stamp set.

This week I was inspired by showing gratitude. And wanted to have a pretty thank you card that would express my feelings.

I love the returning color, Blackberry Bliss, paired with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on this card. I also love the big bold Thank You image that I used as the focal point.

DSC#281: Petal Palette showCASE

When the Petal Palette stamp set was not on the “Retiring List” I was thrilled!

Why?

Because I purchased the entire suite of products and then didn’t have an opportunity to play with it!

So, I am thrilled to have more time to create with this beautiful stamp set and matching framelits.

Remember: the bundle will be retiring on May 31st…so order them as soon as possible.

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “showCASE” Challenge.

This week I was inspired by trying to recreate the look of the Designer Series Paper and creating a pink flower.

I love how the Basic Black layer turned out on this card.

And it was so simple to create, see directions are below.

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette showCASE'd card featuring Petal Palette stamp set, Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and Wink of Stella. For details click through to my blog. #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #petal palette #showCASE

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Petal Palette

Paper: Shimmery White, Basic Black

Ink: Whisper White Craft, Basic Black Archival or Stazon

Accessories: Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Wink of Stella, Petal Pairs TIEF, Petals & More Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot

It’s All in the Details:

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette showCASE'd card featuring Petal Palette stamp set, Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and Wink of Stella. For details click through to my blog. #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #petal palette #showCASE

Petal Palette Card
  1. On Shimmery White cardstock, stamp floral image with Basic Black Archival or Stazon ink, die cut with Petals & More Thinlits. Die cut Shimmery White cardstock circle with Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  2. Use Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss Basic Black cardstock (2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″).
  3. Stamp sentiment with Whisper White Craft ink onto Basic Black cardstock, set aside to dry. For background layer, gently drag edge of ink pad over embossed image on Basic Black cardstock to transfer a light layer of ink to the paper. TIP: use a very light hand because you can always add more ink but can’t take it away.  Set aside to dry, craft ink dries slower than regular ink and you don’t want to smudge it.
  4. Color flowers and leaves with Watercolor Pencils, using Blender Pen to soften harsh lines. Add a little shimmer with Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. TIP: I used the Watercolor Pencils from the Lots of Happy Card Kit-Rich Razzleberry, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive & Lemon LIme Twist. Flirty Flamingo & Lemon LIme Twist are exclusive to this kit.
  5. Adhere embossed layer onto folded Basic Black card base (2-1/2″ x 9″). Trim sentiment. Adhere circle, floral image and sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add Shimmery White cardstock to inside of card for your special message.
  6. Address an envelope and drop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.
