Today, I'm sharing another project from my Painted Petals Stamp-of-the-Month Class coming up on March 12. Registration deadline for the local class and Class-To-Go kits is one week from today, February 25, 2015!
I love this simple card design with delightful, coordinating colors & patterns! It was a really fun & surprisingly quick card to create!
Floral Texture—The background of this card features a 4" x 2-1/4" piece of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock is embossed with the new Spring Flowers Texture Impressions Folder. I love how the pattern coordinates so well with the Painted Petals images!
Irresistibly Striped—The top striped 4" x 3" piece is a pattern from the new Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper, which is a Sale-a-Bration item that you can select for FREE with a $50 order. This specialty paper is white with a glossy white pattern that will resist whatever color of ink you add to it. I sponged on some Crisp Cantaloupe with a Sponge Dauber. I used a lighter touch when sponging this card. You can make the ink much more bold by sponging on more, adding ink directly from the ink pad, or by rolling it on with a brayer.
Washi Wow—I added a strip of black Stacked With Love Washi Tape across the bottom of this piece before adding it to the Calypso Coral card base. The contrasting color adds to the elegance of this card.
Amazing Oval Focal Point—I stamped the long stems from the Painted Petals set in Wild Wasabi onto an Ovals Collection Framelits die-cut shape. For the flowers, I inked the stamps first in Crisp Cantaloupe, then colored the centers of the stamps with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker before stamping. This created beautiful, two-shade details to the roses.
Sweet Sentiment—The phrase is stamped over the top with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Bloomin' Bow—I finished off the focal point by adhering a Painted Blooms Wild Wasabi Cotton Twine bow with a Glue Dot to the flower stems. The Painted Blooms 3-Pack of Cotton Twine comes with your Stamp-of-the-Month Kit!
The focal point is popped up with Dimensionals, of course!
Two Cool—I used the same elements to create a horizontal version of this card.
This time I flipped the texture embossed piece over to the "de-bossed" side. Sweet!
I used the other leaves/flower, two-step combination from the Painted Petals set for this version. And I tried a different sentiment that fit better in the space. I REALLY love how both versions turned out!
