Petal Palette Stamp Set
It’s a Stamping Sunday kind of day! Welcome to my blog and today I am hopping with the fabulous Stamping Sunday second Sunday girls, organised by Sara Levin at The Artful Stamper. The amazing Jenny Hall is our guest stamper today … prepare to be wowed! Jenny is one of the most amazing paper artists I know. Check out her blog “Jenny Stamps Up” for daily inspiration and videos!
We are featuring the stamp set that seems to be everyone’s favourite from the new Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue … and with good reason! The Petal Palette stamp set and the co-ordinating Petals & More dies are amazing. They are the perfect “go to” when you are short on time and yet need a special card. To date, I am yet to create anything that I wasn’t happy with.
Today is no exception… I created this card as a Make and Take project for my Occasions Catalogue celebration this weekend.
The rose image from the Petal Palette is amazing. No matter what you do, it always looks good. This time, I have stamped onto Shimmery White Cardstock with Archival Black Ink and coloured with Pool Party, Old Olive and Smoky Slate inks and a blender pen. I deliberately coloured with short, quick strokes leaving lots of white showing through for a watercoloured look. The die makes the roses super easy to cut out, a real time saver!
The background piece is from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and that gorgeous, delicate silver piece is one of the dies from the Petals & More Thinlits dies, adhered to a Smoky Slate banner shape. Add some Silver Metallic thread and a sentiment and your’e done! Quick, simple and stunning … what more could you ask for!
Multi coloured Mini Note Cards
This next project was also quick and easy and would make a lovely small gift. The Mini Pizza Boxes make great little mini note card holders (and it helps that Stampin’ Up! make super cute little square envelopes that fit inside the Mini Pizza Box perfectly). The envelopes are 7.6cm x 7.6cm (3″ x 3″).
This is a very simple create … stamp and colour each flower spring four times, colour each set of flowers a different colour and die cut with the co-ordinating die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.
The Mini Pizza box comes pre-cut and scored, flat packed ready to assemble, no glue required. The top of the box is the same layout as the note card fronts, utilising paper from the Petal Passion Designer Series paper and a square Stitched Shape Framelit. I have used the Organza Ribbon that comes in the Petal Passion product suite to tie the box together.
I coloured the flowers with a blender pen and inks, and the greetings are all from the Petal Palette stamp set, stamped in Old Olive. If you are wondering what happened to the fourth flower I mentioned, I adhered it inside the note card (but neglected to photograph it).
As you can probably tell, I am having a ball playing around with the Petal Palette Stamp Set and the whole range of Petal Passion products.
