Happy Birthday with Petal Palette

Spring time is here along with birthdays for several of my friends.  So I took the opportunity to be inspired by the inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create a birthday card for one of my friends.  The card I created was very easy and quick to make.  I used the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating Thinlits.  The sentiment was die cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  Love this die!   I also used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. for the background.  The flowers were stamped with Momento Black and colored with Stampin’ Blending Calypso Coral and Old Olive markers.

Life is better with Petals and More

I love gardens.  Don’t you?  That’s why I love the Petal Palette bundle.  The bundle will be retired May 31 however the Petal Palette stamp set and Petals & More Thinlits Dies will be available in the new catalog separately.  The stamp set includes 8 sentiments and 7 images.  So versatile!  Some of the images like the bird and flowers can be die cut with the thinlits.

I created this card using the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge colors of Marina Mist, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  I created the branches background by stamping the branches on Whisper White with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry.  The Whisper White strip was embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder. I die cut the branches, flowers, trellis strip and bird with thinlits from the bundle.

Just a a Note with Petals and More

I just received the Petal Palette bundle.  It’s one of those bundles you don’t realize have so many great elements until you really look at it.  This is a great bundle because you can create many different types of cards.   The greetings are perfect for thank you, wedding, graduation or just because.  The greeting I ended up using is from the Wood Words bundle then die cut with one of the dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

My card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Soft Sky, Lemon Twist and Flirty Flamingo.  I love this color combo!

The images lend themselves to being colored with markers, pencils or water-colored.  I colored the flowers and leaves on my card with a blender pen and ink pads.  The larger leaf foliage  and die cut banners were also die cut with dies from the Petal Palette bundle.

I used a die from the retired Labels Collection, stamped with retired texture stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with retired Encore gold ink, for the layer behind the flowers and foliage.  It was the perfect element to spotlight the flowers and greeting.  The Soft Sky background was embossed with the Simple Stripes Embossing folder.  For added sparkle I finished the card with basic rhinestones.

Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments to be inspired by the design team.  So many beautiful cards!
