Stampin’ Up! Petal Passion Card “For My Friend”

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

I decided to interpret the sketch a little differently and instead of having a banner down the center, I started off with Basic Black cardstock and embossed the center of it using the Petal Pair Embossing Folder.

Next I cut down a pattern from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and colored it in using the Stampin Blends Markers.  I took a lot of inspiration from Patty Bennett as I would never have thought to use more than one color when coloring in a flower.  For example, the purple flower almost in the center is colored in using the Dark and Light Rich Razzleberry markers AND the Dark and Light Pink Pirouette markers.

I mounted the DSP on a panel of Rich Razzleberry and adhered it to the card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a small piece of Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

For the inside I added another small panel of colored in Petal Passion DSP using the Stampin Blends Markers and then stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry, also from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set.

  1. I like that you thought outside the box with the banner but still remained true to the sketch! I love Patty Bennett and you did her right with your coloring.
