Hand Penned Petals – Have a Beautiful Day

One of the first challenges I started doing were color challenges and specifically the ones over at Colour INKspiration.  CI-101 is a set of truly gorgeous colors and yet had me stumped.  In my mind’s eye I have played around with ideas, thought about particular layouts and possible themes.  The deadline is looming and with no more time to dilly-dally, I just dove in and just started creating.

Here is the result.  I hope you like it.



  • Background Panel: (3¼” x 5”) Paper Lattice colored with Evening Evergreen ink and a Sponge Wedge.
  • Floral Images: (3¼” x 2¾”) Basic White cardstock.  The Floral Image from the Hand Penned Petals stamp set was stamped with Evening Evergreen ink twice and colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends – Pale Papaya, Balmy Blue, Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather and Just Jade.  The Flowers were then closely fussy cut with Paper Snips.  There is a coordinating die (Penned Flowers) but I did not want to have a white border showing.     
  • Sentiment Oval: (1¾” x ¾”) Balmy Blue cardstock scrap.  The sentiment, Have a Beautiful Day, from the Very Versailles stamp set was stamped in Versamark ink and again in Evening Evergreen ink.  The sentiment was then heat-set embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  The sentiment was then die-cut with the retired smaller Stitched Shapes Dies oval.

The colored florals and lattice looked prettiest on a Purple Posy (retired color) card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”).  The Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather colors are just a bit darker and pop nicely against it.

Altogether this card turned out quite nice.
