Sneak Peek: Petal Palette Sympathy Card

A Sympathy Card & a Sneak Peek at the Petal Palette Bundle.

I was in need of a sympathy card and although I was not excited about what I was creating it for, I was excited that I could play more with the Petal Pallete Bundle from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog set to launch on January 2, 2018.  This set makes my heart go pitter-patter and I sure hope that it does the same for you!

  • Card Details:
  • I went with my favorite Crumb Cake Cardstock as my card base.  I cut it to 4 1/4 in x 11 in and scored/folded at 5.5 in.
  • I cut the 2nd layer to 4 in x 5.5 in.  I added two strips of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim to the vertical edges (with Snail Adhesive) and then wrapped two strips of the Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon horizontally (also with Snail Adhesive).  I adhered it to the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I ran a strip of Old Olive Cardstock through the Big Shot with a die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies, part of the Petal Palette Bundle. I adhered the center to the top of the Ombre Ribbon.
  • I stamped the Bird and Rose images in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink then cropped them with the coordinating dies and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. I gave them a little pop off the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals as the adhesive.
  • I added the sentiment and a few Pearl Basic Jewels as a final touch.

Rose Wonder Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for Kylie's International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop - Sympathy Card #stampinup #rosewonder #bloghop #sympathycard #papercrafts #stamping #cardmaking

I love the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and while looking through the Sympathy Section of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, I noticed their tip at the bottom of the page suggesting to stamp and emboss the image onto Vellum and then color the backside for a softer feel!  (The Tip is shown below).

Rose Wonder Stamp Set Tip of Coloring on Vellum

I started with soft colors.  I used Lemon-Lime Twist for the Leaves and Sweet Sugarplum for the Rose…I was craving more dimension so I grabbed my Old Olive and Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Markers and added shades of darker color.  When I set it on top of my Wood Textures DSP, I wasn’t getting the depth of dimension that I wanted so I glued a piece of Whisper White Cardstock behind it and snipped it with my paper snips to match the image and hide the mat. I adhered it to the Card Base the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Crumb Cake Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5 1/2 in to create a Square Card.
  • 2nd Layer is Whisper White Cardstock cut to a 5 1/4 in Square and adhered with Fast Fuse.
  • 3rd Layer is Wood Textures Designer Series Paper cut to 5 1/8 in Square, also adhered with Fast Fuse.
  • The Rose and With Sympathy Sentiment + Frame are from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set.  They were stamped with Versamark onto Vellum and then heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool.
  • I colored the back sides with Stampin’ Write Markers:  Lemon-Lime Twist, Old Olive, Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst.
  • I snipped out the images with my trusty Paper Snips.
  • I added Whisper White Cardstock behind the images to bring out the dimensions in the color and snipped it close with my Paper Snips.  It was adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card for a final touch.

Here is a close-up of the detail of color achieved by using two shades of Stampin’ Write Markers and coloring the back side of the vellum.  It was so nice to be able to color and not worry about staying inside the lines!  Tip:  Color the entire image at once with the lighter shades. Then after allowing it to dry, add the shading or depth with the darker colors.

Hoot-A-Riffic Color Combination Night of Navy, Lemon-Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo by Stampin' Up! #colorcombination #stampinup #stampinhoot

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Whisper White 12 x 12 Cardstock cut to 6 in x 12 in and scored / folded at 6 in to make a square card.
  • Take Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and cut it into two-8 inch strips. Adhere to the inside of the card with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • Using the other half of your Whisper White 12 x 12 Cardstock , cut it down to two pieces of 5 5/8 x 5 5/8 in.  Adhere one to the inside of the card to cover the Ribbon Ends.  Adhere the other to the top of the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 5.5 in x 5.5 in.  Create the watercolor background by tapping the edge of the Night of Navy Ink Pad to a piece of acetate.  Spray it with water using a Stampin’ Spritzer until the ink starts to pool a little. (About 5 sprays). Carefully flip it over and touch it to the Shimmery White Cardstock lifting and re-touching until you get the coverage you are looking for.  You may need to repeat this entire step if more coverage is needed. Tip: If water drips from the acetate as you are turning it over to apply it, you have added too much water.
  • Stamp all images (Umbrellas, Umbrella Handles, Clouds and Sentiments) onto Shimmery White Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink. Color the images with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks: Night of Navy, Lemon-Lime Twist,  Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate. Quickly crop each image with the coordinating framelits dies and the Big Shot (be sure to use the Magnetic Platform to ensure the die is held firmly in place).
  • Strategically adhered images to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut 8 inches of Night Of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and bunch it up.  Adhere it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tip: I put the dimensionals on the card first and then added the ribbon, bunching it as I adhered it.
  • Wrap a bunch of Silver Metallic Thread around three fingers, then pull it off and twist it a bit. Adhere it to the back of the flagged sentiment and then adhere that to the bunched ribbon.
  • Trim the “I’m Here For You” sentiment closely and adhere with snipped Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Fab Friday Challenge Blog Sketch Challenge 117 #FabFri117 Play Along with a New Challenge Every Friday! #challenge #papercrafts #fabfriday Today I am playing along with another challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog. This week’s challenge is a sketch (shown to the right).  I have made a list of stamp sets that I need to spend more time with and the Weather Together Stamp Set was one of them.

As I was working on laundry, an idea came to me.  As soon as I had a moment to slip off to my craft room, that idea soon came to life.  My Aqua Painters are my most frequently used tool in my supplies stash.  I just can’t seem to create without them…reason: I LOVE the result.  The soft look of watercolor, the depth and dimension, just calls to me. It will continue to be at the top of most commonly used techniques with my paper crafting.

I decided to hit up the 2016-2018 In-Color – Sweet Sugarplum.  I hadn’t used it in awhile and really wanted my umbrella to be bright, like a beacon of light in eye of a storm.  Although Sweet Sugarplum isn’t necessarily bright, it does look bold against the Whisper White Cardstock and Soft Sky Ink behind it.  The color combination used in this card were determined by me to be “Hoot-a-Riffic” so I made my signature color combination for you to pin.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 5.5 in x 8.5 in and scored / folded at 4.25 in. This created a landscape A2 card that fits perfectly into a Medium Envelope (Available in Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Clear)
  • I ran the Card Base through the Big Shot with the 2nd Largest Sized Circle (2-11/16″) from the Layer Circles Thinlits Dies to create the opening to showcase the circle of rain behind the umbrella.
  • The Umbrella, Umbrella Handle, Clouds, and Raindrops (all from Weather Together) were all stamped with Basic Gray Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock.  The Umbrella, Handle and Clouds were all cropped with the Big Shot and their Coordinating Framelits from Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies. They were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Rain Drops were cropped with the Largest Sized Circle (2-15/16″ also from Layering Circles Framelits Dies).  I took and Aqua Painter and added some Soft Sky Classic Ink for color. This was adhered to the inside of the card, behind the opening.
  • The “I’m Here for You” sentiment was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock, Snipped with the Paper Snips and adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I strategically added some Iridescent Sequin to finish the card.

Rose Wonder Stamp Set for Global Design Project GDP088

Today I am playing along with the Global Design Project, Case the Designer.  Shawn did an amazing job with his card and I was so happy to grab the same stamp set he used and put it to use!  Lets face it, I have a lot of stamps and sometimes I need a reminder to grab and play with some of my goodies.  That is why challenges are always a good tool, they do a lot of the work for you and you can easily add your creative edge and style to it!

Global Design Project Case the Designer Shawn Stamps GDP088 Rose Wonder Stamp Set and Rose Garden Thinlits Dies #stampinup #GDP088 #steshabloodhart

I decided to use the same Rose Wonder Stamp Set and Rose Garden Thinlits Dies as Shawn just change up the background a bit.  Remember that when you CASE a project you can Copy And Selectively Edit, make it your own!  I love to watercolor and wanted to show off some of the New 2017-2019 In-Colors.

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp Set and Rose Garden Thinlits Dies, Stesha Bloodhart with Stampin' Hoot! #stampinup #GDP088 #steshabloodhart

I didn’t really start with a plan or measure for this card.  I just started creating the roses and then cut the watercolor paper background to fit the images I wanted to include on the card.  I do this often cause it makes my workflow easier, but I understand this is not always the case with everyone.  The rose can be snipped and adapted to your background, like the one in the upper left corner.

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp Set and Rose Garden Thinlits Dies, Stesha Bloodhart with Stampin' Hoot! #stampinup #GDP088 #steshabloodhart

Card details:

  • Card Base is Basic Black Cardstock cut to 7.75 in x 9.5 in and scored / folded at 4.75 in.
  • The Watercolor Paper is cut to 4 in x 7 in with a Basic Black Cardstock mat of 4.25 in x 7.25 in,
  • The Mat and Watercolor Paper is adhered to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up!
  • I stamped the Large Rose Image from the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Black Archival Ink on watercolor paper and colored it with an Aqua Painter using the all New In-Colors of Tranquil Tide for the leaves and Lemon-Lime Twist and Berry Burst for the Rose. I ran the coordinating Rose Outline Thinlit (from the Rose Garden Thinlit Set) through the Big Shot with Basic Black Cardstock to create the bold outline. I glued it to the rose with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (my Free Hoot Loot for the Month of May: See Details Here).  I cut out around the rose image with the Paper Snips and then adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Prior to adhering the large rose to the card base, I applied a bit of Berry Burst Ink with the Aqua Painter to create the watercolor wash look for behind the large rose.
  • I ran the Small Rose Thinlit (also from the Rose Garden Thinlits) through the Big Shot with Basic Black Cardstock and then glued it to the corner of the card (again using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen) and then snipped any excess of the edge with Paper Snips.
  • The two sentiments and the outline are all stamped using Basic Black Archival Ink.  The With Sympathy is cropped using the coordinating thinlit and adhered with Dimensionals.
  • I added three Glitter Enamel Shapes to finish the card.  These are available with the New 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog going live June 1st.
