Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop where everyone features projects made with the same stamp set. This time we are showing you what you can make with the Painted Petals stamp set from the Occasions catalog.
Note: The hop officially begins on Monday, April 6th but we post early to make sure everything is running smoothly. Until then you may experience some broken links. Don't give up though!
If you arrived from the blog of the ever so creative, Tanya Boser, then you are where you should be. If this is your first stop - that is good too - just follow the links and you will go full circle and end up back here.
I don't have any exciting techniques or wow projects - just some easy to replicate and easy to mail kind of cards :)
You may need a stamp-a-ma-jig for the dotted line, or you can do what I did and eyeball it. Everything else is just stamping and layering. I did fussy cut some leaves and a rose but that is it!
This next card is supposed to be a cottage garden type card. I even added a fence!
The fence is a separate layer as seen in the picture below. I used the striped stamp from this set to create it. Tip: If you are particular about spacing you may want to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
Once I stamped my flowers on the background, I used the Stamp-a-ma- jig to stamp the flowers on the fence panel so it looks like they are peeking through the fence. The butterflies are leftovers from another card and were made with the Beautiful Wings embosslit.
Tip: To add depth and color to the background I used an Aquapainter to add some Sahara Sand ink around the flowers and leaves. I used Pistachio Pudding ink on the fence panel to give the illusion of foliage behind the fence.
All supplies are Stampin' Up! and from Monday, April 6 - 10th Stampin' Up! is offering Free Shipping!! I deliberately used the In Colors that will be retiring this year because now is the time to stock up!
