There aren't enough superlatives for this year's anniversary set -- Painted Petals! Gorgeous, breathtaking, beautiful, dreamy ... I could go on and on!


My first two cards are very similar. This one features both stamped and die-cut flowers and stamped-only flowers. 



I did some ink blending in Aqua Mist in the background, added some splatter, and then framed with just the outside piece of the new Cover Plate: Pretty Frame die.


Stamps: Painted Petals

Dies: Painted Petals; Cover Plate: Pretty Frame

Ink: Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate, True Black, Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, Raspberry Fizz

Paper: white card stock

Other: Studio Calico Mister Huey's color mist, Copic multiliner


  

This one features stamped and die-cut flowers over a background that has a watercolor look. To get the water lines and the splotchy look, I sponged on Aqua Mist ink, then dropped on some water using a paintbrush and let the panel air-dry.


I used the inside piece of the Cover Plate: Pretty Frame this time and arranged the flowers on the right. "Sending" was heat embossed in white (before sponging and adding water).



I love how the coneflower turned out on this one. The petals are stamped in Raspberry Fizz and Autumn Rose. The center is stamped in Summer Sunrise first. Then I used a sponge dauber to pounce Scarlet Jewel onto just the lower part of the image. I did this a few times to get the coverage I wanted.


Stamps: Painted Petals

Dies: Painted Petals; Cover Plate: Pretty Frame

Ink: Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate, True Black, Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, Raspberry Fizz

Paper: white card stock, watercolor paper

Other: paintbrush, white embossing powder, foam adhesive


   

Next, I played around with one-layer stamping. I love the look of the leafy border and open space in the center. 



After doing all the stamping, I sponged Spring Moss around the perimeter and Aqua Mist in the center for some added interest.


Stamps: Painted Petals

Ink: Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Lavender Moon, Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Aqua Mist, True Black

Paper: white card stock

Other: ink blending tool and foam


    

Using all the supplies already out from the card above, and inspired by Heather, I challenged myself to create another quick card. (I even set a timer!)



This time I stamped my leafy border and flowers, then trimmed on the diagonal. I layered the stamped piece over a thin strip of Ripe Avocado card stock, then onto a Fresh Snow linen card base. Last, I stamped the sentiment and added one more Lavender Moon flower trio above the "g." Elapsed time: 8:03!


Stamps: Painted Petals
