Hi there! How are you doing today? I’m doing great! We’ve had a bit of rain here in Southern California and it’s been nice. We are thankful. And I’m thankful today for this really nice stamp set, Petal Palette. It’s a popular set, and the bundle is a popular bundle, and I see why. It’s one of those sets where the stamps stamp clear and easy, everything turns out the way you expect it to, and the dies cut crisply around the stamped images. I love sets like this ~ quick and easy…and pretty!
I was in a green mood today (a good green mood!) so I used a few of my favorite Stampin’ Up! green colors: Old Olive and the newer Lemon Lime Twist. I think they look nice together.
The leaves are my favorite things in this bundle, both the leaf stamp and the leaves die. Leaves? Well leaves fill in places on cards, behind flowers, behind sentiments…things like that. And these leaves are tall and have several branches. That means when you cut leaves with the die they are tall enough to peek out nicely from behind things, and the stamped leaves are really pretty and look so good inside the card and on the envelope. What do YOU think of the leaves?
This is a fabulous bundle! It has so many options ~ there are eight (8) separate sentiments plus flowers, leaves and even a bird. I want to point out three things you may not notice about this bundle: (1) there is a die which is an elongated rectangular lattice, perfect for layering! (2) this is a great frame die for sentiments, it’s different from anything else we have, and (3) there is a stamp of dots in a rectangular form that is fun as a background stamp.
Today’s card uses the beautiful Southern Serenade stamp set. This is the first time I’ve used this set. Using a new stamp set is like finding a treasure…you know basically what’s in it, but as you dig more you find some very special pieces!
In this set, is discovered this very neat lace stamp. I’d seen it in the set but had no idea how pretty it is! Here I used it as a background stamp with the neutral Soft Suede ink.
The ribbon is the Calypso Coral from the Sale-a-Bration Shimmer Ribbon Pack and it’s free with any $50 order! I used the ribbon in three different ways on these cards. For the center card I just ran the ribbon horizontally across the lower portion of the card. For the card on the right, I zig zagged the ribbon back and forth under the flowers. And for the card on the left, as I was zig zagging the ribbon I gave it a little twist – I like how it turned out!

There are a lot of flower stamps. In fact, there are gobs and gobs of flower stamps out there. But I guarantee you’ve never seen a stamp like this one! Here’s a video to show you more.
This stamp was created by taking a photograph of a real live bouquet of flowers and turning that photograph into a stamp!! That’s why it’s so realistic! And, when you look at it, you wonder if it will even stamp because the stamp side is very flat But there are amazing indentations that produce this beautiful stamped image.
Today’s card is very easy to make. Simply stamp the flower stamp on a piece of Whisper White card stock 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″. Layer a Tea Lace Doily under that stamped panel. Stamp one of the pretty sentiments in this set onto your card base. You can stamp it either at the top right corner of the card base or the lower right corner. For the sentiment I used Archival Black Ink. Adhere the doily-backed panel onto the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals, and that’s it, you’re done! Very easy, and VERY pretty!
So, now that you’ve seen this fabulous stamp set I know you really need to have it! I know that because that’s how I felt when I first saw it! And the wonderful thing is that it’s FREE! Yep, you can’t even buy it! You can only get this stamp set free with an order of $50 or more. What a deal, right? This is why we love Sale-a-Bration ~ because we get such great FREE products!

Just Wow! The Petal Palette Bundle is one of my favorites so far in the 2018 Occasions Catalog! Today’s card is a darling thank you card, and it’s simple and easy with this bundle!
How easy? Well, you stamp the leaf stamp a few times in the center of your Whisper White panel. Then stamp the sentiment in the upper right corner. The other images are stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock and cut with the dies in this bundle. Then adhere them over the leaves. Easy, right?
The sweet little bird and flowers were colored with the fabulous alcohol markers called Stampin’ Blends. Aren’t they pretty? These makers can be used to emphasize a particular element to make it stand out (like the bird). I used soft colors for this card as I will be sending it in the next few weeks — winter, cool weather, soft colors.
Isn’t this bird sweet? I love little birds 🙂
Well, it’s very close to Christmas. What’s on your Wish List? Let me give you an idea: the Stampin’ Blends Markers Collection! A FABULOUS GIFT!!

Today’s card features the new Petal Palette Bundle, and I have to tell you I really really like it. It’s a bit too early to say it’s my favorite as I need to play with some of the other goodies, but I can tell you it’s going to be up there!
The leaves you see here were created with a super-neat die in the Petals & More Thiinlits Dies (part of the bundle with the stamp set). Look at those delicate tiny branches and leaves. I’ll be using these a lot. The sentiment was cut with a “frame” die that is also part of this set.
The ribbon here is the new Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon. It ties beautifully!

Thank you for reading my blog! This card is for YOU, my blog readers. I SO appreciate you and thank you for supporting my work. You are a joy to me and I love making projects to show you 🙂
My card is for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week. I chose the last column on the right, and incorporated the elements stripes, thank you, and twine into my creation.
Any card made with the Floral Statements stamp set is gorgeous. The stamp does it all! It’s one of the prettiest stamps ever. Stamp it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and color it in with Stampin’ Blends — that’s it!
For this card I used the Cherry Cobbler Blends in both the light and dark shades. Each of the colors of Blends come in the two shades. You can see on the flowers the lighter shade is in the middle and darker on the edges.
