Painted Petals For The Paper Players

by Joanne James5. January 2015 22:06

I'm back today with a card for this week's challenge over at Pals Paper Arts, where they have this striking colour combination to play with this week:


My card today features another 'sneak peek' (only one more day to go!) - this time of a fabulous new stamp set from the new Spring-Summer seasonal catalogue called 'Painted Petals'. It's a lovely two-step stamp set that has some fabulous sentiments and was perfect for the card I had in mind today:

I used a base of Wisteria Wonder matted with Night of Navy and added a piece of silver striped vellum to this base. I stamped the flowers in Wisteria Wonder and Night of Navy on Whisper White, then stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat-embossed in silver. I matted this stamped piece in Night of Navy and Wisteria Wonder then adhered this to my base. I added three navy candy dots to the bottom of the vellum panel to add balance to my image. I just love this stamp set and know it's one that is going to get lots more use this season.

That's all from me today - I hope you've all placed your final orders from the current Autumn-Winter catalogue and year-end closeouts, because we are all-change from tomorrow: Sale-A-Bration will be here and Spring-Summer is most definitely on its way!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Thanks Dawn; I was really attracted to the colour combination this week, although initially struggled to get beyond Mary Fish's fabulous lotus blossom flower card! I think Painted Petals is a lovely set though and the overlaid embossed sentiment works really well.

Thanks so much Susan - that's so kind of you to say! I always think it's strange stamping flowers without any green, but I must confess this is one of those cards that I just love too!
