Well, well, well! It seems as though I can’t get enough of this Stampin’ Up! Painted Petals Stamp Set! This card we made at my January Workshop. Again, I chose to use Smokey Slate, Whisper White and Pink Pirouette combination. Call me sentimental!
Here’s what to do:
1. Cut an A-2 horizontal card base at 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ from Smokey Slate Card Stock
2. Cut two 5″ x 3-3/4″ and one 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ piece from Whisper White Card Stock. One of the 5″ x 3-3/4” pieces is for the inside of the card.
3. On the smaller piece of Whisper White Card Stock stamp the stem and leaves image first in Mossy Meadow. I found it easier to line up the flowers to the stem, then the other way around. Placement of the stem should be somewhat on the top and to the left.
4. Then go ahead and Ink up the flowers image in Strawberry Slush Ink. Line up the flowers on the stem before stamping. Don’t worry about getting a solid inked image with the flowers. The variegation is nice and shows off the canvas or cross hatched texture. You’ll see it if you look closely at my card,
5. Next, stamp the “Amazing” greeting in Smokey Slate Ink. Tuck the greeting on the card where it fits best. Make sure to leave enough room to wrap the ribbon along the bottom of the card.
6. Wrap a piece of Basic Grey Stitched Ribbon across the bottom. Tack it down with a few Glue Dots. Wait on the bow until you have all the card layers adhered.
7. Now adhere all the card stock layers together.
8. Make a separate bow and adhere it with another Glue Dot.
9. Place Basic Rhinestones in the flower centers.
The Painted Petals Stamp Set is a Photopolymer set, which by the way is my favorite kind of stamp. Unlike the “clear” stamps the photopolymer stamps are not only transparent, so you can see where you’re stamping, hence perfect placement, but they’re also etched wonderfully deep! The top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and is well-suited for Stampin’ Up!’s firm-foam pads.
