PETAL PASSION - STAMP TO SHARE BLOG HOP


Welcome back to 2018 Stamp to Share International Design Team!  Each month we feature a Bundle or suite of products from any current Stampin' Up! catalogues and hope to inspire you with our creations.  You may have just joined me from Moira McIlroy's amazing blog or starting the hop with me.  Just be sure to click the "next" button at the end of the post to carry on around the team.


The Petal Palette bundle is from the brand new Occasions Catalogue, released January 3rd, just in time for Wedding season here in the South Pacific!  With soft watercolour inspired images, the stamp set is perfect for those romantic occasions, including Valentines, which is only a few short weeks away.  Included in the bundle are the Petals & More Thinlits dies.  A set of 10 dies that have a lovely mix of stamp outlines, floral cuts and banners.


I have used the No Line stamping technique on my card which I have only tried a couple of times before.  I first stamped in light Smoky Slate ink on Thick Whisper White card and then used my Stampin' Blends to colour my images before I fussy cut along the bottom of the panel, around the flowers.  I used the gorgeous banner thinlits to create and frame my sentiment, before threading the beautiful 1/4" White Organza ribbon through and tying around the card.  I then popped this panel on my card base with dimensionals.


Next up on the hop is my lovely friend Amy Koenders from the USA.  I can't wait to see what she has for us!

  2. Beautiful coloring job Paula!
    I love the way you used the die cut and the ribbon.
    What a great idea to use the dots stamp to make a little larger piece of background.
    So to make a long comment short...I love your card!

  7. Hi Paula, I moved in August last year and have barely stamped since as I haven't any new customers here yet. Just seeing this lovely card made me go get my new stamp set and give it a go. How wonderful to stamp again. Thank you for your inspiration.
