Stamp Review Crew - Petal Palette

Welcome to the latest edition of the Stamp Review Crew. This time we are playing with the pretty Petal Palette, which is not only a beautiful stamp set, but is part of a suite of items that are absolutely awesome! If you've been following the hop from the beginning, then you just landed here from Charlet's bog, Painted Orange. She always WOWs me; it's no wonder she's an Artisan Design Team member!

My project today uses SIX(!) of the stamps in Petal Palette, as well as three of the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits. I think that's the most stamps I've ever used on one card! There was a little bit of fussy cutting involved, too, since one of the floral sprigs didn't have a matching Thinlit.

A few days ago I discovered what fun it is to color on the glossy Springtime Foils Specialty DSP, part of the SAB 2nd Release. I remembered that I had a pack of Glossy White cardstock, so I used it for stamping and coloring the flowers. You really must try it - the colors flow on so smoothly, whether it's our Stampin' Blends, or Stampin' Write markers!

The rose bunch inside was stamped in Smoky Slate, stamped off twice for a shadow effect, and I did cheat just a little with the inside sentiment from Thankful Thoughts. It seemed perfect for this card!

Did you notice the "dew drops" on the rose petals? (If you zoom in you can see them.) Those are from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

That's all I have to share; thanks for joining me today! Up next is Deb Burgin, at Heartfelt Inkspiration. I love her clean style!

  6. Cindy I came across your Beautiful card on Pinterest and just had to CASE it. Thank you so much for your inspiration. I will credit you when I post to my Blog. Hope that’s ok.
