Hand Stamped Petal Palette


Have you checked out Stampin' Up!'s product suites?  A product suite is Stampin' Up's way of grouping together coordinating products to make it easy find just the right stamps, dies, and embellishments for your project.  (Of course mixing and matching different suites make some great projects too!)
To be completely honest, the Petal Palette suite from the Occasions catalog did not make it on my first wish list. But, like most products that don't make my wish list, I started to see samples that other have made, and it made it into my order.  It has some of the most beautiful flower stamps that are easy to color. It even has dies to cut out these gorgeous flowers!

The Sketch

The sketch for my card today comes from this week's Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I followed the challenge pretty close to the original, except I wanted to something different with the ink splatters on the sketch.  Instead of the ink, I used a die cut in a similar shape.

The Color Combination

My color combination for this card is Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive.  I had started to make this card for an upcoming color challenge blog hop, but then realized I didn't have Stampin' Blends in the right shade of green.

Dazzling Pocketful of Sunshine


Pocketful of Sunshine is a fun bundle in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog.  The pocket die makes a 3-D pocket that holds die cut images.  It's also perfectly sized to hold a gift card!


Card Recipe

  • Daffodil Delight card base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
  • Rose Red: 3 15/16" x 5 3/16"
  • Whisper White: 3 3/4" x 5"
  • Daffodil Delight scrap for die cut
  • Dapper Denim scrap for die cut
  • Whisper White scrap for die cut


Tips to Recreate this Card

  • The pocket design is stamped with Whisper White craft ink.  This ink is a pigment ink and has the consistency closer to paint.  It dries a little slower than than the other inks that SU! sells.  The slow drying makes it perfect for heat embossing.
  • After die cutting the pocket, I "bedazzled" it with rhinestones
  • The tag on the pocket was stamped with Rose Red ink before die cutting and the sunglasses were stamped with daffodil delight.

Clean & Simple Picture Perfect Birthday


I used products from the Picture Perfect Suite to create today's card.  I probably say this about almost every Stampin' Up! product I use, nut it's worth saying again:  I am in love with this suite!   One of the first things that drew me to Stampin' Up! was their color coordination.  What has really kept me (besides the fantastic quality!) is the product coordination.  Having coordinating stamps, paper, and embellishments take the guesswork out of everything and ensure exceptional results!
The photographic designs in the Designer Series Paper  are so unique!  And the graphic designs on the back sides are just as great!

The Sketch

There is another great sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping this week!  This is the sketch that served as my inspiration:

The Color Combination

My color combination comes right from the designer series paper: Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach and Pool Party.

Card Recipe

  • Pool Party card base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
  • Berry Burst: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  • Picture Perfect Party DSP: 4" x 4 1/4"
  • Pool Party: 4" x 1"
  • Berry Burst: 2 5/8" x 1 3/8"
  • Whisper White: 2 1/2 x 1 1/4"
  • Whisper White scrap 

Tips to Recreate this Card

  • When doing two-step stamping, I prefer to start with the darkest ink first.  I started with the Berry Burst paper coil, Pool Party fringe, Berry Burst dots, and then the Peekaboo Peach tube.  Cut with Paper Snip Scissors.
  • The sentiment piece is attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals,  The paper horn is also attached with Dimensionals for extra dimension.
  • The ribbon was wrapped around the top layers.  I would normally tie a knot before attaching the ribbon, but I decided later to add it.  So instead, I tied a knot in a small piece of ribbon, trimmed the ends on an angle and then attached with a glue dot.
