Multi Technique Card with Petal Palette

It’s almost time to say goodbye to a bunch of amazing products in the current Annual Catalog. One of those products we will be sending off is the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating thinlits dies. This set has been one of my all time favorites! I wanted to make one last beautiful project to share with you. If you haven’t picked up this set, I encourage you to grab one for yourself before it’s gone.

I needed a Baby Shower card for my Brother and Sister-in-law, and Petal Palette was there for me. I didn’t have anything baby specific, but I thought the sentiment in this set was perfect.

I used several different techniques on this card, thus the “Multi-Technique” title. We have the Smooshing technique on the background, watercolor and ribbon coloring, partial masking, and finally double die cutting. See my video below to check out all the techniques used on this card!

Split Coloring Technique REDO with the Stamparatus

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back, so good to see you again! Today’s video is a remake of one of my earlier cards, the Split Coloring Technique. When I originally made this card, I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the placement on the colored in card stock and the base card stock. I received a request from Kay Capps to show how to make this card using the Stamparatus. I thought that was a brilliant idea, so here it is! Thanks for the suggestion, Kay!

I knew I wanted to use the beautiful Poppy Parade as my base color this time because I just so happen to have the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend markers which make coloring in so easy and fun! I paired that with Old Olive, which is a beautiful green that compliments just about any color.

Positioning the stamps was really easy, and fit beautifully together with the images from Petal Palette. I adore this set, and am so pleased with how well it works with this technique on the Stamparatus! I’m eager to make more of these cards, and play around with different placements.

Be sure to take a peek at my video tutorial, which shows you just how I achieved the look on this beautiful card. This video is slightly different from my others in the way I narrated my actions with a voice over. If you decide to watch it, let me know what you thought!

Measurements:

Poppy Parade Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, cut after coloring


Materials:

Stamparatus

Petal Palette Birthday!

Hello Kre8tors, I’m Melissa from Melissa’s Kre8tions and welcome to another Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m really excited about this one because it’s my birthday! How fun that my birthday falls on hop day! To celebrate, our theme is birthdays! So take a moment to enjoy your favorite beverage and hop around to all of the talented demonstrators from around the globe participating in today’s hop!

My card today features my favorite stamp set, Petal Palette! I’ve also thrown in the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits dies, and the new Buffalo Check background stamp. I used the Round Robin technique on my Stamparatus to stamp my circle (or square) of flowers. Love this technique! It’s just another great way to use this amazing stamping tool!

I used Mint Macaron for my card base and the ink on the buffalo check background and Blackberry Bliss as my card mat and ink on my focal image and sentiment. I love this layout design, as it is perfect to use with nearly any stamp set!

When using the Stamparatus to do the round robin technique, you can get very different results depending on the size of your stamp, and where you place it in your template. You can see in the first photo it looks slightly more rounded, and in the second photo it is more square and more spread out. See my video below to find out how I created my focal image on the Stamparatus!

I hope you enjoyed my project and video tutorial today! Please be sure to click the next button below to hop on over Rebecca-Jo’s talented blog to see her fun birthday project!

Goodbye 2018 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2018 May Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month’s theme is all about the retiring products from the Occasions catalog, which are now while supplies last until May 31st! So, be sure to hop along to each participants blogs to check out their wonderful inspiration projects and grab these supplies before they retire at the end of the month, (unless they sell out before then!)

It’s Mother’s Day today here in the United States, and I’ve decided to create a beautiful card using the Petal Palette suite for my mom. Now, the stamps and the dies from the Petal Palette bundle are NOT retiring per say, however the discounted price to get them in a bundle IS retiring. So you will still be able to get your hands on these items, just not at a 10 percent discount. So if you really love this set, I highly recommend picking it up before the month’s end!

One of the reasons I love this set so much is the adorable little bird! He’s so cute and squishy, and I love how he can perch on just about anything! On this reverse eclipse card, I have him perched on top of the M in the word MOM.

I used Very Vanilla cardstock for my base and top mat layer. I used a piece of Fresh Fig from the 2017-2019 In Colors for the middle mat layer. I stamped my base images in Memento ink, and colored them in with the Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Duo colors, (light and dark). I used the Color Lifter to give the flowers a lighter and more natural look.

I stamped the greenery in Old Olive, and used my Fresh Fig to stamp the accent flowers. I stamped two of them in full ink, and two of them using second generation ink. (Inking the stamp, stamping it once, and stamping it again without re-inking to get a lighter image.)

I really love this set, and it has been one of my all time favorites since it’s debut in the 2018 Occasions catalog. I’m SO glad this made it into the new Annual Catalog, which will be available to customers to view starting at the beginning of June! Yay! 😀

Measurements:

Very Vanilla Cardbase – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″
Rich Razzleberry Middle Mat Layer – 4″ x 5-1/4″
Very Vanilla Top Mat Layer – 3-3/4″ x 5″
Very Vanilla Scrap – Approx. 4″ x 5-1/4″

Ink & Share Blog Hop Spring

Hello and welcome to another Ink & Share Blog Hop! March’s theme is Spring/Easter and I’m so excited to share my project for this hop! The sun is shining and the birds are singing, it’s such a lovely day that I knew I wanted to feature a floral card for this month’s hop. After you check out my project, be sure to scroll all the way down to click that Next button to keep the inspiration going!

I really love the look of Pink and Gray together. There’s something whimsical in those colors that softens the white background. I saw a similar design on Pinterest and knew I wanted to use the same colors with the Petal Palette stamp set.

I started with a Whisper White standard card base, then added two layers to give a step effect. I stamped the polka dot stamp all over the background, variegating the ink tones as I stamped from the bottom to the top of the cardstock. I also used an Aqua Painter with the Powder Pink and Basic Gray to splatter the background for the added texture.

I stamped the roses in Powder Pink, and the leaves in both Smoky Slate as well as Basic Gray. I really like the two tones of gray on this card. I think it makes the subtle pink pop a little more. I stamped the sentiment in the Memento Black ink.

I also added a few of the Glitter Enamel Dots in the pink tone. I really love how this delicate card turned out! It’s a great mix of shabby chic and feminine grunge. I don’t have a video tutorial for this card, as I didn’t craft this in my office. I’m hoping to get back to a somewhat regular video schedule soon!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Mat 1: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Mat 2: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White Scraps for Stamping: Approx. 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
