Hand-Penned Petals – Anything is Possible

It is time to show you what I created for my INQUE SPOT STUDIO’s WEEKEND CHALLENGE and SUNDAY SKETCH.  I combined the two.

I aim to keep you stamping with these challenges.  I hope you had a chance to play along.  The challenges are always posted to my Facebook Business Page and my Instagram account.

Here is the result:



WEEKEND CHALLENGE – Use a Tool.  This week it is the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  If you do not have the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, you can substitute your Paper Trimmer by employing the Scoring Blade.

  • I cut a Very Vanilla cardstock panel (4⅛” x 5⅜”).  I tucked the panel up into the corner of the Scoring Board and added a double embossed line on each edge.  This is easy to do and creates a nice frame.
  • Stepping it up a little.  I used the retired Simply Scored Diagonal Plate to create the embossing on the Very Vanilla cardstock side panel (1½” x 4⅜”).  I tried it and with some patience this, too, can be created with the Scoring Board and the Paper Trimmer.  However, you can skip all that and choose to use a textured embossing folder instead.

SUNDAY SKETCH – Stamp Set: Hand-Penned Petals and Penned Flowers Dies

  • Using the Stamparatus Positioning Tool, one of the Floral images was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on to a piece of the free SAB selection Be Dazzling Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used the Stamparatus because I wanted to get a really dark black image. If you have a inky ink pad, you could just stamp image straight to paper.
  • The Be Dazzling Designer Series Paper can be colored.  Here I colored the Floral image with a variety of Stampin’ Blends: Stem – Mossy Meadow, Leaves – Granny Apple Green, Small Flower – Polished Pink and Large Flower – Rich Razzleberry.  Colored Glitter?  Who could ask for anything more!
  • The Floral image was then die-cut with the coordinating die.  The Floral image could also have been fussy cut.
  • For the cross strip, I chose to use a scrap of Mossy Meadow cardstock (3⅜” x ¼”).
  • The sentiment, Anything is possible, was stamped into the lower right corner with Old Olive ink.  My Old Olive is very dark and almost looks like Mossy Meadow.
  • Everything was assembled and adhered to Very Vanilla card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to march the sketch with the Floral image popped up with Dimensionals.

A pretty bedazzled card for someone special.
