Yesterday I went back to play with my Spring Catalogue favourite:
the Petal Passion Suite. I’m absolutely thrilled that the Petal
Palette Stamp Set, and the Petals & More Framelits are
being carried forward into the new catalogue – I wish the
Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP) was too!
As I have done on several occasions already, I added Real
Red to the mix yesterday, which is my all time favourite colour
combo i.e. black, white, and red! I decided to use two
white background designs from the DSP for on the front of my card.
Instead of making each design the same size as each other, I cut
the top design a lot more narrow than the bottom design. Then I cut
a strip of Whisper White Cardstock (CS) to put across the join
of the two DSP pieces. I stamped across the width of the strip using
Basic Black Archival Ink, and the small flower and leaves stamp.
Using Pear Pizzazz and Real Red Marker Pens, I coloured the
images, which helped me to decide which colours to use for my
layer and the card base! I adhered the flower strip to a strip of
Basic Black CS, and then adhered all the other pieces in place.
I had thought about using a large sentiment to pop on Dimensionals
in the middle of the striped area, but I decided to do something
a bit different. I chose the sentiment from the Flirty Flowers Stamp
Set – I think – and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White CS.
I die cut the sentiment using the smallest Stitched Shape Circle
Framelit Die, and adhered it to a Basic Black CS circle, which I’d die cut
using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Next I adhered them
onto a Real Red CS circle, which I’d die cut with a scalloped circle
from the same set of dies.
To finish the front, I added some Black Faceted Gems to the black
flowers, and some Basic Rhinestones to the sentiment. My
final touch was painting the flowers, leaves and red scalloped
edge round the sentiment, using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.
To decorate the inside of my card, I took a Whisper White CS
layer, and stamped and painted the same flowers and leaves as
those on the front of the card. I finished them off by painting them
with Wink of Stella, too! I’m very happy with the finished card!
That’s about it for today, so until tomorrow, happy crafting.
