Petal Pizzazz Gift Card

Last week, the theme challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments’ challenge was  “Anything Goes” 3-D project/card/whatever.   Hmmmm….seemed so easy and not restricted to colors, themes, etc. 

Okay – thinking hat on what do I create this time????  It always seems like that first 7 months of every year there are so many activities happening so why not make another gift card item.   Again, challenging myself not to make anything with flowers and/or birds, I chose to use the Petal Pizzazz stamp set.  I love this stamp set. 

This card can be used for any occasion (by just changing your color selection) for baby shower, bridal, graduation, birthday, etc.    A week late but here’s my card:

Happy New Baby

This week’s the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a color challenge using the Soft Subtle colors — Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. 

I wanted to stay away from flowers and bird — because I tend to create mostly these types of cards.   So I challenged myself to use a different stamp set — “Fun and Fast Notes”.   Since we’ve been preparing for Crystal’s baby shower, I recreated the cards I made for this function and used the challenge colors.   So here are the three items I created for this challenge:  (1) Baby Card (which I used as in invitation), (2) 3×3 Baby gift card and (3) Thank You card.

HSS Challenge #62 – Pink-A-Licious

Pink-a-licious is the theme this week.  A nice color to bring in the new season of Spring!!  And all the Pink-A-licious creativity you’re going to see this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments (HSS). 

I tried to use as much pink in different shades  — Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, and my favorite Melon Mambo.   Well, it’s the “new”  pink to me.    I stamped a canvas picture frame using an old retired stamp set that I really love and still have — DD Tulips.    Since five members of the HSS reside in San Antonio, Texas — I took the opportunity to take a picture of the ladies to use in the frame.

The gift box & 3×3 cards were a “last minute” design.  I had created a card but I realized that my assigned project was not a card but a gift set — Like duh!!!  Back to the drawing board and start creating something.   The box itself is not my creation.  I got the instructions from Angie Juda’s site Chic’n Scratch Live!  Check it out — she did an awesome job on the tutorial for the box.   The 3×3 note cards are my designs and I really had a great time creating these cards.  Below is the list of supplies I used to create these items.

HSS Theme Challenge – Thinking of You Sentiment

Hello!  This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge was a little challenging.  I just could not come up with something to create.  However, I remembered that my Aunt Terry asked me if I could create a card with birds.  So Ta Dum!!!!  A “Thinking of You” card with a bird.

It was perfect because I had been wanting to use the Punch Potpourri stamp set for some time.  This set is a Level 1 Hostess set (#120124) and also one of Shelli Gardner’s Signature Collection stamp sets.   Being a collector of punches, I was able to use the matching punch (2-Step Bird #117191).

I tried to do something a little different — rather hoarding accessories (rhinestones, Designer Series Paper, etc.), I actually used them on my card. What a concept!!!  I have been known to purchase lots of accessories and not use them.  The wording “Thinking of You” is from the stamp set Three Little Words which by the way, is also one of free Sale-A-Bration stamps you can earn.  I hope you enjoy this card.
