Hey there! Today's card is another one we will be making at my Stampin' In the New Year Birthday Card Stamp-a-Stack next Monday. The Petal Passion Suite is my absolute favorite from the upcoming Occasions Catalog. If I could only own ONE set from this catty, Petal Palette would be it. I love that there are coordinating framelits too!
Inspired by Mary Fish, I made some changes to make this card my own:
Starting with a Crumb Cake card base, I layered on Powder Pink, then a Crumb Cake layer I embossed with an inked Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. After stamping the Petal Palette images with Basic Black Archival ink on Crumb Cake, I used a Sponge Dauber to add Pear Pizzazz and Powder Pink to the blooms and leaves. I cut them out with a die from the Petals & More Thinlets Dies. The dies and the stamp set are bundled together to save you 10%. After cutting out the blooms and adhering to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals I added some shimmer with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.
Before I stamped and cut out the chickadee, I sponged a scrap of Crumb Cake with Whisper White Craft ink and dried with my heat tool. I liked the look much better than when I added the white ink to the stamped birdie. The birdie on the left is stamped over the sponged white ink. The birdie on the right is stamped first and then sponged with ink.
I perched the birdie on a greeting banner stamped with a Petal Palette phrase and cut with a Petals & More Thinlet Die. I added a single pearl to the far end of the greeting banner.
Inside I stamped a sentiment from the Big on Birthdays set, found in the Annual Catalog. I colored the corner blooms with sponge daubers.
