Petal Palette Watercolor, PCC275


Up today is a card I made for the Paper Craft Crew  Sketch Challenge #275 (PCC275) and this is the sketch we were to use:

Paper Craft Crew challenge PCC275

I love the diagonal cut and I chose to emboss my diagonal piece with one of the new Petal Pair embossing folders.

Here’s my card featuring products from the Petal Passion Suite:

PCC275, Petal Palette, 2018 Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog

I used the Petal Palette stamp set and watercolored the flowers after stamping them with black Staz On ink.  They are die cut with the coordinating framelit from Petals & More and then popped up on the card with dimensionals and a bit of gold thread looped in the background.  Below the yellow panel is a die cut, again from the Petals & More Framelits, using Old Olive card stock.

Did you notice the water drops on the white background?  Those are the new Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes and I love how they add just a subtle touch to the card.

If you like sketch challenges, here’s another one that I did previously.

Let me know what you think and thanks for stopping by today!

For a Great Friend

I just love these new 2017-19 In Colors!  Doesn’t the Lemon Lime Twist make quite the bold statement as a background for the Berry Burst/Powder Pink flower?

I used the same stamp for the background as was used for the leaves around the flower.  The swirl in the center is the “negative” piece out of one of the swirly circles from Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies.

Summer time is my VERY favorite time of year and bright colors make me extra happy every day, in every season!

Enjoy the beauty of this season!

Lovely Inside & Out Trio

I made this trio of cards, starting with a really simple version at the left and then stepping it up by adding more details for each of next two cards.  The stamp set is Lovely Inside & Out along with the Lovely Words Thinlits.  To step up the flowers in the second and third cards I used Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.

Lovely Inside & Out Trio by Krista Thomas,

The colors are Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide, four of Stampin’ Up’s new In Colors

for 2017-19.   Here are the three samples shown separately:

Lovely Inside & Out with Lovely Words

This is a great card for beginners, with basic stamping and a die-cut word.  I’ll step it up a bit for the second card below…

Lovely Inside & Out, stepped up version

On this second “stepped up” version I have added Powder Pink swirls and a glitter dot on each flower.  Finally, on the third version below,  I added punched out flowers popped up on top of the stamped ones, plus a swirl and a glitter dot.  These swirls are the negative portion of the swirls on card #2.  I also added some leafy Tranquil Tide swirls behind the flowers and changed the sentiment just a bit.

Which one is your favorite?  I typically would not pair Lemon Lime Twist with Powder Pink, but somehow I think it worked on these cards.
