Fabulous Petals

This bright floral card was created for the SCCSC65 sketch challenge on Stampin’ Connection. This sketch was created by me. Here is the sketch.



And here is my card.


Stamps: Fast and Fabulous, Perfect Punches
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
DSP: Paisley Petals DSP
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy, Black Stazon
Markers: Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Peach Parfait, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Sponge, Frost White Shimmer Paint, plastic wrap, Scalloped Oval Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder

The card base is Daffodil Delight cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. The card front was run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Die to add a little bit of dotted texture to the card.

A piece of Paisley Petals DSP was cut at 2 ½” x 5 ½” and adhered to a piece of Not Quite Navy cardstock cut at 2 ¾” x 5 ½”. A piece of Crochet Trim was adhered to the panel and the ends were adhered to the back of the Night of Navy cardstock. This panel was then adhered to the card front.

A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 3 5/8” x 2 1/8”. The flower outlines from Fast and Fabulous were stamped in Black Stazon and the flowers were colored in with Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Peach Parfait, and Always Artichoke markers. I then used the Mother of Pearl Technique to add Frost White Shimmer paint to the panel and sponged over the entire panel with Daffodil Delight ink. The edges of the panel were sponged with Early Espresso ink and the panel was adhered to a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 3 ¾” x 2 ¼”. Next this panel was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting from Perfect Punches was stamped in Not Quite Navy ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock then punched out with the Scalloped Oval punch. Two large pearls were added to either side of the greeting and the oval was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I really hope you’ve enjoyed my bright spring-y card which also uses a wonderful new technique. You can find a tutorial HERE for the Mother of Pearl technique.
