Stamp Review Crew - Painted Petals Edition

It's time, once again, for the Stamp Review Crew to share some creativity with all y'all. This week? Painted Petals!!! Oooooooo-la-la!!! Who DOESN'T love 'em some beautiful flowers???? This set is DA BOMB!!

I actually did the second card I am going to share with you FIRST. And then I was done. Or so I thought. I feel like I've seen a lot of things done with this card that look very similar to what I did on my second card ... but then THIS card jumped into my head!! I realize I did NOT invent the "make-a-rainbow-card-with-non-rainbow-shaped-stamps" card ... but I thought this was a fun way to use a couple of images in this set.

Stamps: Painted Petals
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Project Life Corner Rounder Punch, Paper Piercing Tool/Mat, Paper Piercing Essentials Pack, Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, Essentials Clips Hardware

So ... here is a little garden of flowers. I used some white craft ink to stamp the flower, then I sprinkled them with white embossing powder and heat-set them (actually, the FIRST thing I did was stamp the chevon image from "Work of Art" in the background with some Crumb Cake ink). I next colored the flowers and stems with my good-ol' trusty-ol' Stampin' Up Markers. Nothing too many here (unless you think the oval frame is fancy ... which it really isn't, but kinda looks nice, anyway). I am still using up bits of Burlap Ribbon that I have left over from making wedding shower invites (I ended up cutting too many pieces, so I have several "spare" ones floating around at the moment!)!

Stamps: Painted Petals, Work of Art
Paper: Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, Whisper White Craft
Accessories: Note Tag Punch, Ovals Framelits, Large Scallop Edgelit Die, Burlap Ribbon, Natural Chevron Ribbon, Clothespin, Mini Stapler









What a pretty garden of images!!! So lovely!

Sweet sweet cards! The flowers stamped on Crumb Cake look terrific!

LOVE the rainbow! Very appropriate for Easter if you ask me :) But your second card is sooooo lovely! I'm kinda glad you have bits of Chevron ribbon to use up, it is so yummy and it reminds me to use mine ;)

Two beautiful cards but I particularly love that second one with all the embellishments and left over ribbon :)Your colouring on the white petals is just gorgeous.

Wendy--I'm with Bronwyn. As soon as I read how you colored the flowers, I thought, "I'm going to try that :)." It's really pretty with all the little embellishments, including the mini clothespin. Thanks for the inspiration :)! --Beth

A dynamic duo, Wendy! I love the "out of the box" bright rainbow card. It's always fun to see different ways to use stamps. I agree with Browyn too on your use all the fun embellishments…they add up to a simply stunning card!

Adriana Benitez said...

Great take on the rainbow! What a fun, cherry card! And although we may have seen other cards created with lighter tones, your projects always have such beautiful detailing and layering - making them truly unique. TFS!

Betty said...

Two beautiful cards! Fun to see how one set can be used in two very different ways. Your details on each are perfect!

Mike said...

Wendy, you win for my favorite card of the hop! What a clever idea! Love the rainbow palette and how you connected the lines with the blooms is amazing!

Nancy Smith said...

That's a really clever use of the stripes in your first card. Thanks for explaining how you colored the second card. I'll have to try that. Very pretty.

Lisa Young said...

What pretty cards, Wendy! I love how you used this set to create a simple card and one with more technique.

WebDeb said...

Love the technique of coloring over heat embossing. Really effective on that card! Thanks for giving a name to that first layout ...
