Well, as you can tell, I decided crafting was better than anything I can think of to get over the sads. So here are two cards I made using my new Petal Palette stamps. Good timing for them arriving when I needed something new to play with.
Basic Black - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Pool Party / Daffodil Delight 5 1/4" x 4"
Petal Passion Designer Series Paper - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Whisper White - Stitched Shapes (largest oval)
Stamps - Petal Palette
Ink - Memento Black
Stampin' Blends - Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party
Wink of Stella
A note about Wink of Stella. How many of you have one of them and you just can't get any more sparkle to come to the brush? That was me and then I learned that you could put just a little bit of rubbing alcohol inside your pen, shake it up to loosen all those little sparkly bits and you're ready to keep going!
Only use a little, like maybe 1/4 teaspoon (or less). You don't want it to be too wet. You can always add more alcohol.
Notice I also used the Stampin' Blends to color some of the little flowers on the designer paper.
Inside I used layers just like the outside. I thought the Basic Black could use a little extra color besides the Whisper White.
Color: 5 1/4" x 4
White: 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
I do love the look the Wink of Stella adds, don't you?
Thank you for looking in today! Happy Thursday.
