Stampin’ Up! Painter’s Palette for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBannerI used the Stampin’ Up! Painter’s Palette stamp set from the upcoming 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog to create my card for the Happy Stampers blog hop.  We’ve got a color challenge this week and this is what I made for it.  I know that it’s only the beginning of May, but you can never get going on those Christmas cards too early!!

Painter's Palette - Stamp With Amy K

This design was inspired by a fantastic card that I saw from one of the OnStage Display Stampers, Rebecca Scurr.  You can see her awesome card here.

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

May 5

I started by adhering a panel of gold DSP from the Neutrals DSP stack to a Thick Whisper White  card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Then I stamped the brush images from the Painter’s Palette stamp set (available June 1) in Garden Green ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Garden Green card stock with SNAIL.

Painter's Palette 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I wrapped a strand of Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon around the panel and I tied a bow, then adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I punched a star from Gold Glimmer Paper with the Medium Star Punch and adhered it to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added Rose Red Candy Dots from the Regals Candy Dots (retiring) pack to the card front to finish it.

Oh, What Fun - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment and swirl from the Oh What Fun photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green and Rose Red inks on a Whisper White card stock panel inside the card.

  1. *groan! No, not me, I am always last minute scrambling to make Christmas cards, lol 🙂

    These are such cool swoops that make the branches! Can you put them on the block together?

    • Ha! I’ll still be scrambling in December…I have a plan, but it never works like I think that it will. 😉 I didn’t try to put them on the block together, but I think that you could!

  2. wow, what a very cool idea for this stamp set and you rocked the challenge with it, nice job
