My Sweet Petunia and PinkFresh Studio bloghop and Giveaway


Happy Friday!
The My Sweet Petunia team along with some special guest are collaborating with PinkFresh Studio for one fantastic bloghop with lots of gorgeous inspiration.



The are prizes to be won as well, all you have to do to be eligible to win is follow the links below and leave a comment on each participating blog. Both companies are giving away a $50 gift card to their shop and two lucky stampers will be randomly selected from the comments. 

I created two samples using greetings and dies so that they could be sent to anyone during these strange times we are living in, because we all need a little kindness right?


The first card above I started with a white top folding card base, a black panel and a white panel. I created the background panel by placing the Cling Popout Chevron background stamp in the Misti 2.0 and removed every other chevron and inked it up with Ocean Breeze, next I flipped the chevrons and inked it up again with Aquamarine ink. I placed a seperate piece of cardstock in the MISTI 2.0 and stamped the first layer of flowers in Sparkling Rose and the second layer with Raspberry Bliss, next I stamped the stems with Olive and the second layer of leaves with Fresh Pear. There is no way I could ever use a layering set without a Misti! I am so thankful for Iliana and her invention, it completely changed my stamping. 
After I got the floral image stamped I used the coordinating die to cut it out and popped it up on the focal panel. I used a greeting from the set Just Because set and used the Cut-Align to cut it down. 



My second card was pretty quick and easy to make. I started with a white card base, a black panel and a piece of patterned paper from the 6x6 Celebrate paper pack. Y'all this paper is very good quality nice and thick. After I cut the piece for my focal panel I added a sentiment from the Simply Sentiments-Hello and the Hugs die from the Phrase Builder -Sending. 



Don't forget to visit all the blogs and leave comments to be eligible to win.

Reverse Stenciling


I am up on the Erin Lee Creative blog today with this card using the reverse stencil technique. 


To create my card I started with a white top folding card base, a black panel to use for a mat and a white panel. I took the white panel, some Hero Arts Hues Reactive inks inks and Blending Brushes to create a rainbow background. After I finished the background I sprayed the Houndstooth stencil with Pixie Spray and laid it on top of the rainbow panel and covered it with Black Soot distress ink using a blending brush.

Next I stamped the Sketch Floral Background on a separate piece of white cardstock and fussy cut out one of the flowers for the focal point. I left it white so it would be a stark contrast against the background. I used a sentiment from the Tropical Plants set and embossed it in white.

I colored them with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies

No Words





Today's card is brought to you by Impression Obsession Stamps. I am sliding this one in for their summer flowers challenge that ends soon. 
Sympathy cards are so hard to make but this sentiment by Impression Obsession makes it just a little easier. 


This was a very simple card to create. I started with a white top folding card base, a coral panel for the mat and a white panel for the focal panel.  I inked up the Hollyhocks background stamp first with a little Honeysuckle and then added some buttercup and sponged them together to give a faux watercolor. The sentiment it also by Impression Obsession and is a favorite when creating a sympathy card or just a card when you don't know what to say in the moment, because lots of times there are just No Words

Pool Party


 Quick post to share a card made for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers. 
The challenge is Pool Party and you are to be inspired by that or use something you would see at a pool party. Well looking through my stamps I have zero stamps that have anything to do with a pool party so I had to get creative. 
I used a stencil to create the "pool" water and everyone wears flip flops to the pool right?
I hope you will play along. you can find the challenge HERE
