Simply Painted Petals


Welcome back! Happy St. Patty's Day!

Before I show you today's card, I have an announcement: Stampin' Up has decided to discontinue the MDS Digital products and Printing as of May 31, 2015. If you are an MDS user, please read the details and Q&A here.

Now, onto the fun stuff. I just love the card I am sharing with you today. I know I've said it many times, but I love simple cards! And I just love it when a particular stamp set is perfect for making simple cards! Painted Petals is one those stamp sets! 

First thing I did was to stamp the Painted Petals flowers on the Whisper White. I used a rock n' roll technique to ink the flowers: I inked them up with the Wisteria Wonder ink pad, then rolled the edges of the flower stamps in Blackberry Bliss before stamping them. I did the same thing with the leaves using only Always Artichoke- except that I stamped off on a scrap piece of paper and then rolled the edges in Always Artichoke again. 

I just used my Paper Trimmer to cut the Whisper White piece and then matted it on a layer of Wisteria Wonder.

I cut the Whisper White card base and then used the Apothecary Accent Framelit die to cut only the edge of the card. You can do this by inserting the card 'through' the framelit and line it up evenly before putting it on the Magnetic Platform to run it through the Big Shot. 

Then I stamped the sentiment in Wisteria Wonder and added some Pearl Basics Jewels for a special touch 🙂
