Painted Petals Thank You for Mother’s Day


I was thinking that a thank you card just might be the most appropriate Mother’s Day card there is!  We have so much to thank our mothers for and this pretty card would be perfect.

  • The Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog will be retiring on June 2nd, and one of my favorite suites to work with is the Painted Petals coordinated products.  Here I’ve used the Painted Blooms stamp set and the Painted Blooms Designer Paper, and there’s also a Spring Flowers Embossing Folder that coordinates beautifully.  And the stamp set is available in all three stamp types – wood, clear mount or photopolymer!
  • The color scheme is from the designer paper – Blackberry Bliss, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky.
  • This stamp set has a lot of different components, and some can be used as base stamps for lots of other stamp sets.  Here, I’ve used the row of watercolor circles to create a border above the Soft Sky Cardstock strip, and this could be so useful on so many cards.
  • The Oval Framelits used with the Big Shot creates the backdrop for the pretty flowers.  There’s a stamp for the stems and a separate one for the flowers, so it’s easy to stamp them in different colors.
  • It’s not easy to see in the photo, but the flowers have just a touch of Dazzling Details to make them shine.
  • Love the font combo for the sentiment – it’s stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink.
  • Three Soft Sky Candy Dots finish up the card.  You’ll find them in the Subtles Collection of Candy Dots.

Wishing all of you mothers a beautiful day of being pampered and spoiled – you deserve it!

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!
