Good Morning! I need some thank you cards and I have been working on a post for later this week using the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set. I found a pretty card on Pinterest that was made by Tammy Beard of StampinSavvy.com here and was inspired to make one similar but with fall colors. I’m not sure I succeeded, but it was a lot of fun playing with different colors and stamping a card rather than relying on die cuts.
Here’s the Facebook Live video where I demonstrated how to make the card.
In the video, I used the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set to make the Rich Razzleberry and Mango Melody card with the Mossy Meadow leaves. I started by stamping the Mango Melody flowers, and then the Rich Razzleberry flowers, and then filling in with leaves. I finish off the card front by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love what you Do in Memento Tuxedo Black and I use the Stamparatus so that I can stamp twice to get good coverage. I also show how to curve the petals on the punched flower so that you can get a dimensional look. And I used a black sharpie so that I wouldn’t harm the tip of my Stampin’ Blend on the faceted gems to color it black before applying it to the center flower.
I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.
It was fun to make a card that had a lot of stamping and was not for Christmas. And you’ll note that I did make two boo boos by rocking the leaf stamp instead of bringing it straight up and down – now I have an example for why you shouldn’t do this. Finally, thank you Tammy for the wonderful inspiration!
