SU Petal Palette

SU Post Script with Petal Palette

May 9, 2018

Today I have a quick and easy card inspired by a card I got from my BFF Amy
that had a background of text with images over it.

I set out to case the card with my SU products but then somehow this is what came out…

I used the SU Post Script background stamp and then layered the “Just a Note” stamped with Stazon ink on vellum over the background image. I adhered the vellum to the background behind the bird, and a little bit of adhesive on the black strips kept it in place well. A touch of Crumbcake cardstock and Stampin’ Blends alcohol marker on the bird added a little bit of contrast from the black and white base colors on the card. Oh, the sentiment comes from the Soft Sayings Card Kit.

*Note my chickadee is the right color:)

SU Petal Palette Silver

February 14, 2018

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!

In the spirit of LOVE today, I have a wedding/anniversary card to show you using the
SU Petal Palette Bundle.
The Pinewood Planks dry embossed panel is just enough texture to be noticed but lets
the silver embossed roses take center stage on this card.

Silver Heat Embossing pairs so well with Smoky Slate ink.
I usually use Smoky Slate ink to stamp sentiments with delicate fonts, so much easier than heat embossing:)

It’s difficult to see in the photo but I used the beautiful silver foil paper to die cut the scallop oval that borders the Stitched Shapes oval. Some scattered rhinestones finished off the card wonderfully, don’t you think?

SU Petal Palette Blue Bird

February 9, 2018

My chickadee has turned blue on this card…he’s kinda like a chameleon.
He turns any color I want him to…

I was earning to use some Night of Navy, and I thought Daffodil Delight would pop right of the dark background.
I just colored the beautiful images found in the Petal Palette stamp set with my Stampin’ Blends
and added in some cute little Perfect White Accents.
Don’t you just love that lacy element and the sentiment die cut that comes in the Petals and More Thinlits?

For my northern friends…
Think spring- flowers and birds- just like the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #136 is this week…

SU Petal Palette Marina Mist

February 2, 2018

Happy Friday, friends!

I took a little liberty  with Cecile’s  Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 322
and interpreted the sketch with an oval as the focal point on my card.

I also decided to share it with Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #135  “All You Need is Love.”

 

I used a soft yet bright at the same time color palette of
Marina Mist and Melon Mambo with Pear Pizzazz added in. Notice that this delicate feminine card has a blue chickadee, too! I colored the pearls in the middle of the flowers melon mambo using my Stampin’ Blends. I love how easy it is to color pearls and rhinestones with alcohol markers!

The Rarely seen Red-Bellied Chickadee…SU Petal Palette

January 19, 2018

You are about to see the rarely seen Red-Bellied Chickadee…
I say “rarely” because some other stamper may have colored the belly red!

I texted my friend (upline) Linda to ask her opinion on whether my red heart should be on the top or bottom, and she said on the bottom but she was “a little disturbed” by the red belly on the chickadee. Oh, it definitely is a chickadee but I reminded her that in the stamping world- “anything goes to make it coordinate.”

I don’t think I convinced Linda (aka the realist) of my chickadee/robin but she gave me
the green light to “go with my artistic gut”…

On the inside, I used two thinlits from the Petals and More Thinlits that are similar
to the ones on the Petal Passion DSP along with the Happy Birthday sentiment
from the new SU Beautiful Day stamp set.

I am sharing this card with Freshly Made Sketches # 320.
