Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Penned Flowers dies have some pretty two step stamping images with wonderful sentiments and coordinating dies. This has been a favorite for it’s casual style so I used it for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a color challenge this week:

I adhered a panel of Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with liquid glue. I cut a diagonal striped vellum panel with the 3rd largest Scalloped Contours dies and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Seal. I cut two of the large bouquet dies from the Penned Flowers dies from Brushed Soft Succulent paper and adhered them on the vellum with glue dots.

I stamped the large bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Flowers stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I used the filler stamps to color the flowers in Orchid Oasis, stamped off Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight and the leaves in Soft Succulent. I cut the flowers out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on Balmy Blue. I cut the label out with the slant label die from the Something Fancy dies. I used Orchid Oasis metallic ribbon to make a loopy bow and adhered it with a glue dot and adhered the label over the bow and flowers with glue dots and dimensionals. I finished the front with Iridescent gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flowers in the upper corner of a Basic White panel using the same colors as the front. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The pretty Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Petals stamp set is on the retirement list along with the Penned Flowers dies and the Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ DSP. It’s sad to see these retiring – they have inspired so many pretty projects!
