Petal Palette Stamp Set by Stampin' UP!

Petal Palette Thank You Card

I knew that I wanted to color the beautiful cabbage roses from the Petal Palette stamp set in Cherry Cobbler so I colored the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  The roses were cut out on the Big Shot using the matching framelits. I really loved how they looked. I added the textured  behind them using the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder on a piece of Old Olive card stock and then cut it out on the Big Shot with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The sentiment comes from this stamp set as well.

Best birds Stamp Set by Stampin' UP

Case This Sketch #234

Today's card was inspired by a sketch challenge from Case This Sketch.  The bird image from the Best Birds stamp set is set upon the Burlap background stamp.  The simple color palette sets off the image nicely.  I flipped the sketch to a horizontal format to accommodate the larger sentiment from the Floral Phrases stamp set.

Emboss Resist Technique features the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set

Emboss Resist Technique

Emboss Resist is a technique that creates a lot of impact for very little effort.   On a small piece of whisper white card stock, you simply stamp the Brushstrokes image in Versamark ink, sprinkle with clear or white embossing powder, and then melt it with a heat gun. Using sponge wedges, sponge each of the five colors right over the top of the embossing.  Wipe the remaining ink off the embossed stripes with a paper towel.  So much fun while being a quick technique. Try it out!

In Color Gift Tag Set & Daisy Punch

It is always a fun time of year when Stampin' UP releases the new in color palette that is good for the next two years. I was ecstatic when I saw the new Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. It reminds me so much of those neon colors that I grew up with as a teenager in the '80s. Simply fun and beautiful!
