Painted Petals: You Are Amazing Birthday Card

Lisa's Lattice ~Work

Well, I used the Painted Petals stamp set once again for a very special birthday card, going to a very special person in my life; my cousin Lisa. Lisa celebrated her birthday back on February 18. For Lisa’s card I wanted to reflect all that is special about her. The sentiment fits Lisa perfectly. You’ll just have to take my word on that. I also chose a card with a very feminine lattice-work edge, along with the subtle Pistachio Pudding green and the pearl embellishments. It’s Lisa to a tee. Happy, Happy Birthday Lisa!

The lattice-work card used here is a retired card from the Simply Fabulous Simply Sent pack Stampin’ Up! offered back in 2013. I love the top layer so much I saved them and use them sparingly! You probably could make something similar using a BIG Shot and a border thinlits. I’ll have to play around with that possibility and see what I can come up with.


The stem and leaves were stamped first in the soon to be retired,  Pistachio Pudding ink. I found it easier to line up the flowers to the stem, then the other way around. I have to tell you the 2013-2015 In-Colors~Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana are among my favorite colors, and I’ll be sad to see them retire this year.

The Painted Petals were inked up in Calypso Coral. This stamp set is not a solid floral stamped image. If you click on the image and look closely, once stamped, the petals really look as though they are painted on canvas. LOVE IT!!


The sentiment was stamped in a deeper and darker green called Mossy Meadow.


 The Finishing Touch:

I added a Pear Pizzazz little fork bow! Don’t know what a fork bow is check back next week for a tutorial. I shared this a few years ago at one of my workshops, but I’m sure you all can use a refresher.


And, finally five tiny pearly Pearls were added to all the Painted Petal centers.





What fun and how versatile this stamp set is.  If you don’t own one yet, make sure to order it!


Have a great weekend.

Painted Petals: You’re Amazingly Amazing Card

Painted Petals Header Amazing

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!

Painted Petals Amazing Card

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.


You’re done!


FYI ButtonThe 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.

Painted Petals: Thank You Card

Painted Petals Thank You Header

Have you received your Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog yet? And, if you have, did you go through it carefully and oooh and ahhh everything in it? I know I did!  This is a thank you card I made using the Painted Petals stamp set, for my friends Elaine ane Tony who were very gracious over Christmas.  Look to come back and see the card I made with this set for my workshop on the 17th!


Painted Petals Thank You Card


This is a fun card to make, because of the layer of the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper which I love! This DSP was FREE from the 2015 Sale-A-Bration catalog. You can earn this DSP as well with a qualifying order of $50.00 from January 6-March 31,2015.  For details  click on SALE-A-BRATION


I love how fresh the Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana looks together. CLICK HERE to see why blue and orange work well together.



Let’s get started on how to make this card:

1. Cut an A-2 card base which is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ from Calypso Coral


2. Cut a 5″ x 3-3/4″ of Best Year Ever DSP


3. Cut another piece of Calypso Coral card stock at 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″


4. Cut the top layer of Whisper White card stock at 4-1/4″ x 3″


5. On the left hand side of the Whisper White, stamp the stems and leaves image from the Painted Petals stamp set in Wild Wasabi Ink.


6. Above the stamps stamp the two cluster flowers in Coastal Cabana Ink.


7. To the right of the flower cluster stamp “thank YOU” in Calypso Coral Ink. Look at photo for placement.


8. Around the Whisper White piece wrap a piece of  Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine and tie a bow. Even though I used Coastal Cabana Ink, the Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine is a close match.


9. Layer and adhere the card as shown.


You can make a stash of these by cutting different colored card stocks and designer series papers. Then you’ll have them ready to sent all year long for someone who does something kind for you, like Elaine and Tony did for us!
