Hello! I am so excited to share with you a card made with the Hand Penned Petals bundle from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog! I really love this suite and can’t wait until you all can get your hands on it! I made two different versions as we are all at different places in our card making journeys. The first is more for those of us who want or have it all, dies, DSP, markers, card stock etc. the second is made with just stamps, markers, card stock and a paper trimmer.

To begin I used a card base in Whisper White* and used the edge die that‘s included with the bundle to cut the border. I used a post it to keep it in place about an inch from the end of the A2 sized card base. ( 8.5 x 5.5 scored at 4.25) I then cut an inch off of one of the Hand Penned Memories and More cards and glued it to the inside of the card. I used Blackberry Bliss ink to stamp the floral image and then, using the coordinating die, I ran it through my Cut n Emboss machine. Next, I colored in the image with my Stampin’ Blends markers.

Lastly I adhered the cut image with Stampin’ Dimensionals and inked the “Thanks” sentiment on the bottom right corner. For my more simply stamped version, I used the same size card base, but instead of using the die, I just cut an inch off with my paper trimmer. Then I used a scrap piece of paper to cover everywhere but that last inch, and stamped my floral image a few times running down the card.

Next, I folded my card and stamped the larger image and “Thanks” sentiment on the front in Blackberry Bliss. Once all the stamped images were dry, I used my Stampin’ Blends markers to color them all in. The colors I used were, Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, Pool Party and So Saffron.

Less steps and products needed, yet when you see them side by side, not so very different.

Thanks for stoping by and taking a look at my cards!
