Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Painted Seasons Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’re having a great weekend so far – and have (maybe!) joined our fun Facebook Event!  If not – there’s still time to get in!

My card today further showcases the versatility of the soon-to-be-available Painted Seasons bundle (coming on 15 Feb – this will be available for FREE with a $100 purchase as a Sale-A-Bration goody!).  This time, I paired it up with the Strong & Beautiful Stamp set from the Occasions catalog as well as the SAB Part of My Story stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one if from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a Whisper White panel and, using my Stamparatus, stamped the pretty succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist.  I stamped it a bunch of times.

Next, I added the little dots image all around in Petal Pink.

I also used my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to add little touches of pink to the tip of each succulent petal.  Then I matted the panel on Petal Pink with Liquid Glue.

The ribbon accent was made by tying a large-ish bow from the Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon and adhering it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set in Versamark on a piece of Vellum card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool. Then I cut it out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelit.  I also cut a Petal Pink rectangle with the same die.  With Glue Dots under the embossed areas, I adhered the sentiment to its mat – and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut some Wonderful Floral Framelits leaves from Lemon Lime Twist card stock.  Then I colored some Butterfly Elements (from the Sale-A-Bration flyer – free with a $50 purchase) with my Call Me Clover and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut leaves and wooden elements to the card front – tucking some under the sentiment.

Then I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Lemon Lime Twist and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers to directly color a sentiment stamp from the Part of My Story stamp set (FREE at the $50 level during Sale-A-Bration) and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Lemon Lime Twist card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Seasons succulent on the front…and before I send it it’s going to get more Petal Pink “dots”, too.  Sheesh, Mare…

…and some pretty paper from the Painted Seasons DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am already totally in love with this image-only Painted Seasons stamp set – love being able to use the gorgeous flowers with one or more of the awesome sentiments we have available to us!  And the Strong & Beautiful and Part of My Story stamp sets sure have a lot of those – perfect for so many occasions!  I hope you like – and are looking forward to being able to pick this bundle for yourself when you place a qualifying $100 purchase.  15 Feb is right around the corner! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix

The last couple of days have given me some of my favorite weather.

Foggy mornings.

I love the fog – I suspect it stems from growing up in the SOCAL coastal region.  It has very strong – and good! – memories for me.

Also – when it’s foggy, I can pretend that just the other side of the trees is the Pacific ocean.  And that I can hear the waves.

It’s really just the distant sound of the freeway, but…hey.  A girl can dream!

The other thing I love about this misty weather is….the deer emerging…

Did you see her?

You can’t see them unless they move!

Finn – seldom sees them at all.

    Beautiful card. I had to zoom in to see the pink on the tips of the succulent but what a wonderful difference it makes–one of the reasons you are so good! You add those extra touches. Love the offset of the sentiment too…really, I love it all! Peaceful scenes. Not surprised Finn doesn’t se the deer. 😁

      I’m glad he doesn’t, to be honest! Makes it a lot easier than having to tell him leave it leave it leave it…. thanks very much, Susan! 🙂

      Well, I do like it best when I do NOT have to drive in it, that’s for sure! Thanks, Mom! 🙂

  5. I can’t remember if I left a comment…one of those days…so this might be a duplicate. I’d rather leave two than none at all because your card is STUNNING! That is all!!

      Looks like this is the only one, Karen! Thanks for caring enough to leave such a nice comment! 🙂
