Simply Sunday: Petal Palette Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and I thank you for taking time out of your day to stop and visit my blog.  Today I have a sweet -n- simple card for you, that I created using the Petal Palette stamp set (Annual Catalog – page 119) and the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits Dies.

I used the monochromatic style when creating this card which is done in the Balmy Blue …

My base is Whisper White as was the oval for my greeting and the flowers that were die cut with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  I don’t know about you but I feel in love with the Gingham Gala 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper … it’s just so “springy”! Reminds me of a warm sunny day. I chose the smaller gingham side (other is wider) and then backed it with Balmy Blue.

The oval was cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and stamped in Balmy Blue.  As I stated earlier … I die cut the flowers with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies and colored them with the Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Combo packs.  They were then popped up using mini dimensionals and embellished with the clear faceted gems (so pretty).

I think the stitching adds the perfect touch to the gingham and those clear faceted gems really make the little flowers pop! Cute yet quick … that’s just how we have to have it sometimes!!

Again, thanks for stopping in today!

I wish you a beautiful Sunday ~

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card I would like to share with you, that I received from one of my stamping friends, Peggy Kahle. Peggy is joining me at my retreat (she is from Oklahoma) and she sent this with her payment … what a treat for me!!

Peggy used the beautiful stamp set Petal Palette and the coordinating die set Petals and More thinlits…

Peggy began by heat embossing the floral piece with white embossing powder … then watercolored the flowers. Such a soft and pretty look. She used the die cut leaves and the petty die embellishment to draw your eye to the flowers.

The background she used is now retired but it was one of my favorites … the polka dots.  Love ’em!

I hope you enjoyed Peggy’s beautiful card as much as I did. I’ve had it on my shelf and thought it was just to pretty not to share with all of you.

Thanks for checking in with me today. See you tomorrow!
