Hello everyone! It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. This time our challenge is to use a new product from the upcoming 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. I decided to go with the Pansy Petals Suite. This suite includes the stamp set called Pansy Patch, the coordinating dies called Pansy Dies (and you can save 10% by purchasing them both in a bundle), Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and Bumble Bee Trinkets (which are just adorable). The moment I saw this suite, I knew I would have to get it.
When I first started playing around with this set, I tried a whole bunch of different colors. I made a lot of different pansies but this combination was my favorite. This stamp set is a two step stamp set which means you use two or more stamps to make one image. The pansies do take five different stamps, although you don’t need to do them if you don’t want to. The colors I used in order were Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and the little piece in the middle is Evening Evergreen. I used Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent for the leaves. They are both part of the new InColors. After I stamped everything, I cut them out using the coordinating dies.
For the background I used a Soft Succulent card base. I adhered two 1″ strips from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to each side. Then I glued a 3.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Soft Succulent to a 3.5″ x 5.5″ piece of Evening Evergreen card stock. I think if I did it again, I would have embossed the piece of Soft Succulent but I wasn’t going to rip the card apart and start over again to do this. Next time!
You can purchase all these products on May 4th when the new catalog comes out.
Now let’s go see what new stamp set Buffy and Jackie used for their cards. I know once I see them, I will have to buy whatever they used. They talk me into so many stamp sets. In the stamp world, we call those kind of people “enablers”!
