Hand-Penned Petals – Here for You

Never seems that I actually get the Tuesday Case the Catalog Challenge completed on Tuesday…so it is time to catch up!

Sketch: Case-ing Tuesday Challenge (#315); Color: As You See It Challenge (#255) and Theme, Material and Style: Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#124).

Here is the result:


Tic = Flower…Hand-Penned Petal stamp set, Tac = DSP…Beautifully Penned Floral paper pattern and Toe = Ombre…Beautifully Penned Black, Gray and White Striped paper pattern which has an Ombre look to it.


  • Focal Image: (2½” x 3½”) Vellum and Basic White Cardstock.  The Floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink onto Vellum and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.  The image was colored with the Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Cajun Craze and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers using the Stained-Glass Technique, which is applying the color to the back of the image.  The colored image and a piece of Basic White card stock were both die-cut with the coordinating die from the Penned Flowers Dies.  The colored vellum die-cut is adhered over the Basic White cardstock die-cut with Mini Glue Dots.  This allows the colors in behind to shine brighter.
  • Center Panel: (2¾ x 4”) Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper Floral pattern colored with a variety on Stampin’ Blends: Daffodil Delight Dark, Calyspo Coral, Cajun Craze and a mix of Mossy Meadow Light and Granny Apple Green Light to create the green tone.
  • Accent Panel: (2⅞” x 4⅛”) Basic White cardstock to create a little separation from the background panel.
  • Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper Striped pattern.
  • Sentiment Label: (1¾ x 1⅝”) Basic Gray cardstock scrap.  The sentiment, Here for You, was truncated and from the Color & Contours stamp set.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder and then die-cut with the small label die from the Harvest Dies set.

All of the elements were assembled and adhered to a Basic Gray card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”).  I chose to flip the sketch 90 degrees to better fit the Floral die-cut.

I am in love with the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper.  The muted Black and White (gray tones) mixed with pops of color look so great together.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!

  1. The coloured vellum is lovely. These autumnal colours sit really well against the dark background too. It’s another beauty! Thanks for joining us again at As You See It, Jolanda.


  2. Definitely a dramatic flair with the darker background, but very beautiful as well! Thanks for joining our colour challenge at As You See It Challenges.


  3. What a fantastic treat for the eyes! Love the bold darker blackgrounds, in layers, what’s more!! Love the look of the focal flowers on vellum – so visually appealing! Thank you so much, once again, for sharing this beautiful creation with us at Tic Tac Toe challenge!


  4. What a great card Yolanda! Such a fabulous mix of pattern and texture with the vellum and contrast of the darker background – fabulous! Thanks for sharing over at TicTacToe and As You See It this week!
