I used the Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette stamp set bundle from the upcoming Occasions Catalog to create my card for the Stamp Ink Paper embossing challenge this week. The Occasions Catalog ordering kicks off tomorrow!!
Here is the badge for Stamp Ink Paper 131. Stop by the challenge blog to play along too!
The design for my card was inspired by Less Is More #360.
I started by embossing a panel of Basic Gray card stock with the Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder (available Jan 3). I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL and then to a Cherry Cobbler card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut a panel of Gold Foil Sheets with the border die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies (available Jan 3) and adhered it with touches of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front. Then I stamped the image of the roses from the Petal Palette stamp set (available Jan 3) twice in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I colored the images with Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored around the edges with the Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker and used the Color Lifter to lighten some of the areas on the roses.
I cut the roses out with the coordinating dies from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots. I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with the banner die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies, sliding one end close to the end of the die. I carefully placed the die over the sentiment with the opposite end near the other end of the sentiment and ran it through the Big Shot again to cut the sentiment banner shorter.
I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added a gold enamel dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.
I stamped the flower image from the Petal Palette stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White card stock panel, then inked the dot image from that stamp set in Basic Gray Archival Ink, stamped it on scrap paper twice and then stamped it over the flower image to finish the inside of the card.
