Today’s card is just a sweet card for anyone who needs Celebrating. We all can use that most days. This one is made with the Petal Park Bundle of beautiful flowers.
The sweet flowers used in this card are from the Petal Park stamp set. And are cut using the Petal Park Punch. This is a two step stamp set. So the outline of the flowers and leaves are stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I wanted them to really stand out against the darker background of the papers. The inside of the flowers are stamped using Calypso Coral and the leaves are Soft Succulent. The flowers are three on a single stamp. So this was only two stamping to get all of these flowers. I did stamp the first one full strength and then stamped again onto the second image without re-inking. I love the softer look and how they pair together.
The sentiments are from the Sentimental Park Stamp set. This set has a variety of “build your own sentiment” type stamps. Personally I love this! And to mix the fonts makes me really happy. That is one of the things I love about most of Stampin’ Up!’s sentiments is the mix of fonts in one sentiment.
Dies and Punches
To complete the Petal Park Punch comment, it matches both the flowers and the leaves. Just turn the punch over and look at the punch side to see how best to stamp your images to line up with the punch. For the flowers, having the two larger ones on the bottom works perfectly. The leaves are individual. So I had to stamp five leaves to get what I wanted. By looking at the bottom of the punch, I knew which direction to angle them to easily punch out.
The sentiment layers are made with some of my favorite dies. These are both from the Scalloped Contours Dies. The scallops are in a few different sizes and the smaller white one fits a lot of sentiments and even stamped images. They are a staple to my Die Collection.
Paper and Colors
The beautiful, yet simple, DSP piece is from the Country Floral Designer Series Paper. It is one of the reverse sides. You know I love to use those lesser used papers. This one is pretty with soft colors that I wanted to highlight. My choice of the Calypso Coral , both full and stamped off strength is a shade darker than these flowers, but work wonderfully together. The card base is Mossy Meadow, which is a shade darker than the background. And the Mint Macaron scalloped layer is a shade lighter. All of the Stampin’ Up! colors really do work well together.
