I’m again using my team member’s borrowed stamp set, Petal Palette 🙂 Lynn had kindly lent it to me, so I could use it while creating the Framed Sampler for our Crop and Create. (You can read about this fun event, and see the sampler in THIS POST, if you haven’t seen it yet).
Anyway, I’ve been on a springtime kick lately – because regardless of the weather outside – the calendar says it’s Spring! LOL I don’t know about your weather, but we’re heavy into the April Showers here. At least there’s the guarantee of lots of green coming soon!
Today’s card focuses on the large flower image in the stamp set.
PETAL PALETTE CELEBRATION
The simple layering adds a lot to the card front, along with the dry embossing of the Daffodil Delight panel.
Cut a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Use the Big Shot and Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This embossing folder was available during Sale-A-Bration (to earn for free), but if you didn’t get it then, don’t despair! It will be coming back in the Annual catalogue, on June 1st, for your to purchase! I’m so glad, because I love this new embossing folder. The texture is amazing.
Next, cut a 1 1/2″ x 5″ length of Old Olive cardstock, and a 2″ x 4″ length of retired DSP that coordinated with the Painted Harvest stamp set. Use the Banner Triple Punch to punch banner tails on one end of each length. Attach them to the embossed panel, with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the large flower image from the Petal Palette stamp set in Versamark ink, cover it with White Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. Use the Brusho Crystal Colours as watercolours, and colour the flowers and leaves. To use the Brusho as watercolours, sprinkle the crystals (in this case, the Yellow and I used a Leaf Green from non-SU! Brusho) onto a Clear Block, and add water from an Aqua Painter. Pick up the paint with the Aqua Painter (dry it off, so as to not add more water), and colour in your flowers and leaves. After colouring the flowers yellow, I added some Gamboge (orange) crystals to the yellow paint, and added a touch more colour to the flowers. Once you’re finished painting, the Clear Blocks clean up quickly with a spot of gentle dishwashing liquid and water!
Use the Big Shot and with the Petals & More Thinlits, die cut the image. With the Big Shot again, die cut an oval shape with the Stitched Shapes Framelits from Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the sentiment from the Birthday Delivery stamp set in Old Olive ink. Use the cross-hatch image stamp from the Best Birds stamp set, and stamp it in Daffodil Delight ink above and below the sentiment.
PUT IT TOGETHER
After attaching the two banners, slightly offset, to the embossed panel, wrap a length of 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon in Old Olive twice around the top of the panel. Hold it in place on the back, with Tear & Tape. Next, attach the oval in the middle of the panel, with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Now you can attach the die cut flower image to the lower left of the oval, with Dimensionals.
Finish off the front panel by attaching 3 Pearl Basic Jewels to the bottom right hand corner of the panel. Now you can attach the front panel to your Old Olive cardstock base.
I haven’t decided yet whether this card will be used for a ‘congratulations’, ‘anniversary’ or ‘birthday’ card, so i didn’t stamp a sentiment on the inside panel, yet. I did stamp one of the smaller flower images in the bottom corner, in Memento Black ink. I then used my Stampin’ Write Markers in Daffodil Yellow and Old Olive to colour the flowers and leaves.
