Another clean and simple card using the Penned & Painted stamp set from Stampin' Up!

I said in my last post for the International Project Highlights blog hop that I had made 3 cards using the Penned & Painted stamp set from Stampin' Up. Here is one of the others that I have made.

My favourite colour is purple, and on this one I used the 3 current purple shades in the Stampin' Up colour collection: Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant. I also used 3 shades of green for the leaves: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Always Artichoke. The little ladybird is also in that stamp set and is so cute! I stamped the outline in Memento Tuxedo black ink and the body in Watermelon Wonder.

The greeting is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set, which is a great set too.

If you need anything to make this card, please go to my online shop!

Happy stamping,

International Project Highlights using current Stampin' Up!® Products

Welcome to our International Project Highlights using current Stampin' Up!® Products. We have all created this gallery of projects for you to be inspired by! We would love it if you could visit every one of our blogs and see a close up of our projects. You can see the gallery below and this will be on every blog that you click on so you will never be lost.

I used the gorgeous Penned & Painted stamp set for the first time this week, and made 3 different cards with it.

With this one I heat embossed with copper embossing powder the greeting (from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set) and the outline images of the flowers and leaves. I did this on a panel of Shimmery white cardstock, which works well with the watercolouring technique I used.

I used my aqua painter to pick up the ink colours from the lids of the stamp pads, after squeezing the closed ink pads to transfer ink to the insides of the lids. The colours I used are Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach for the flowers, and Emerald Envy for the leaves. I used Daffodil Delight for the flower centres.

Once dried I attached the Shimmery White to a Basic Black mat and then to the Flirty Flamingo card base. A few basic Rhinestones add a bit of bling to finish off the card.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. We know that you will love our gallery of projects made from Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators around the world!
