Stamp Review Crew | Petal Palette

Hello Monday – the third Monday of February, which means I’m hopping with the delightful Stamp Review Crew.

This talented group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators hail from all around the world.  This week we’re sharing designs with the super popular stamp set Petal Palette.

Get ready for some amazing designs to inspire you!

My absolute favourite from this stamp set – the one stamp that has been overworked – is the large trio of flowers.

So, that was my first creation…

I used the no-line watercolouring technique to colour the flowers.

Ink the stamp in a soft colour (I prefer Sahara Sand) and stamp onto scrap to remove most of the colour, then again onto your piece of Whisper White.

Use an Aqua Painter to go over the image lines and shade within the flowers/leaves.

For my second card, I set myself a challenge to use the other stamps in case 2.

This was the result…

And I’m so happy with how it turned out!!!

It can be fun outside of the comfort zone!

My tip for creating outside of your usual style or realm is to keep as much the same as you can.  For this card I chose colours I know I like (yellow, gray, white & black are a favourite combination of mine) and a layout & stamping style I’ve used before.  All I had to do was slide the stamps into the design and we have a card!!!

  1. Great cards Kelly and great tips! Stamping with Confidence sounds awesome and with you two great talents, people will be in wonderful hands!

  2. I completely “get” your love of the trio of roses! It’s been my fave, too. But as much as I love it, I think your card with the bird is my fave today! (And you used five of the stamps – woot!)
