Hand Penned Petals

Stampin Up Hand Penned Petals

Last weekend the Nashville are got hit with some strong storms.  There were tornado watches (something I will never get used to), a hard driving rain and then 50-60 mph winds.  We were ok but my son and his family lost power early during the storm and it stayed off for a couple of days.  Lucky for us, they decided to come stay with us for the weekend.  We had a lot of fun crafting, playing minature golf and just hanging out.  Maybe I should wish for thier power to go out more often (just kidding, Tara).  Rob is collecting paintings done by our grandchildren for his office.  Emory, Maddie and Nolan did a great job on their’s.   When it is all done, I will share photos.

Today’s card is a fairly simple one to make.  I first used a 3..5″ x 4.25″ piece of Evening Evergreen card stock with the Stitched Greenery die.  I love how this die just cuts little dots that form leaves.  It is a great way to add a subtle background to a card. I backed it with a 3.75″ x 4.75″ piece of Basic White card stock and a Soft Succulent card base.

Next, I stamped the flower from the stamp set called Hand-Penned Flowers using Evening Evergreen ink.  I cut it out using the coordinating Penned Flowers dies and then colored it using the Balmy Blue and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink and cut that out using one of the Stylish Shapes dies.  I adhered that to the card using Dimensionals.  Lastly, I added some Gold Adhesive Backed Swirls (retired).

  1. This is so pretty, Susan! It’s a perfect “feel better” card. I know you had fun with the kids. I’d be tempted to turn off their power every now and then to get sleepovers!! So Fun. I can’t wait to see pictures of the pictures!
