Painted Petals from Leadership Conference

Painted Petals

Today began the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference in Orlando.  I wasn’t able to attend this year, but I did watch some of the conference via live streaming.  I loved the projects that our Co-Founder and CEO Shelli Gardner presented.  The good thing about not going is that I could go right to my design table and try some of her ideas.  Sad to say, this card didn’t turn out nearly as gorgeous as Shelli’s – I’ve decided I’m just not a shabby chic kinda gal – but I still thought it showed off the Painted Petals stamp set in the Occasions Catalog nicely.

  • Colors are Blackberry Bliss, Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz. 
  • For the splatters, I used Gorgeous Grunge for the Blackberry and Sky splatters.  For the Pear Pizzazz, I took a wet paint brush, dipped it in the ink and “flung” it onto the cardstock with little tap of the brush.
  • The sentiment is a great one – who wouldn’t want to receive this!  It’s stamped in Memento Black Ink, cut out with an Oval Framelit and popped up on Dimensionals.
  • Pearls are the only embellishment, keeping it simple and letting this pretty stamp set do its thing!

I want to try this same card in different color schemes and with different sentiments.  Once you have a great layout like this one, you can change it up all different ways.  I’m thinking Strawberry Slush, Mossy Meadow and Coastal Cabana next!
