Hand-Penned Birthday - Stampin' Up! Hand-Penned Petals - Fab Friday 212

 TGIF everyone!  It looks like we might have a wet weekend so lots of time to stamp right?  The team at Fab Friday Challenge has a new challenge to start your weekend stamping!  It's a fun set of colors and we can't wait to see what you create with them.

  I think these colors are perfect for spring flowers but I'm always amazed at the creative ways stampers will use our colors.

  Getting some ink on a new stamp set was a priority and I had Hand-Penned Petals just sitting there waiting with all of my preorder items.

   This card starts with a Soft Sea Foam base, then a layer of Ice Cream Corner DSP that was perfect for the Old Olive and Soft Sea Foam requirement.  Then a Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle was cut from Soft Sea Foam and stamped with the same color of ink using the other large outline flower stamp in the set.  I then backed the panel with Whisper White.

  The flowers were first stamped in Memento black and then I filled them in with Terracotta Tile, Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam using the 'fill' stamps.  They do not line up exactly so don't get yourself in a tizzy trying for perfect alignment.  This way gives it a more artist, watercolored look.  I ended up adding a little Old Olive light Blends to leaves so they didn't blend into the background so much.

  The sentiment from Many Messages is stamped in Old Olive and I layered it with dimensionals over a length of retired ribbon and added some sequins and pearls.

  Have fun with the colors and don't forget to share your creation over at Fab Friday!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Beautiful card Amanda! I borrowed your idea of framing the scallop die, such a beautiful set, I love your take on it, mixing it up with the polka dots and the long sentiment strip, just lovely!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
