Welcome to another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. On this hop, we are focusing on the Petal Promenade Suite on pages 106-107 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. If you are hopping, you should have just arrived from visiting Charlet Mallett. I love every single one of her projects and those flowers...are wonderful! As a matter of fact, I have seen most of the projects on today's hop, and you don't want to miss a single one.
This entire suite is so romantic. There are many things to love about these products. I especially like the Beautiful Promenade stamp set (#146842) because it is so versatile. For my card I stamped three large flower and matching inside layer in Fresh Fig, Melon Mambo, and Pumpkin Pie ink.
For the flower centers I added small dots of White Craft Ink and then heat embossed them with White Embossing Powder. I stamped the leaves with Old Olive ink and then used Old Olive Stampin' Blends to add color. Classic Ink is water-based and the Stampin' Blends are alcohol-based, so they work well together. I used the coordinating Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies (#147043) to die cut the stamped images and I also die cut a few additional leaves from Mossy Meadow cardstock. The sentiment is also stamped in Fresh Fig ink.
For the background, I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Tuffed 3D Dynamic Embossing Folder (#146335). Next, I mounted the panel on a top-folding card base and arranged the flowers and leaves in the top center of the card. After I adhered the stamped images, I added even more interest with various sizes of pearls.
I have a little bonus project to share today as well. I pulled together this sweet, little pillow box using the stamps and dies from the same set. I started with a Kraft Pillow Box (#147018) and applied Mossy Meadow ink with a sponge dauber. The white polka dots resists most of the ink and it gives you endless color possibilities. Just remember, the box is kraft, therefore not all colors (especially lighter ones) will show up true to their original shade.
I wanted to achieve a chalkboard effect, so I stamped the sentiment and frame with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I also used a Whisper White watercolor pencil to lightly shade in the corners to add to the effect. Finally, I stamped and die cut several of the flowers/leaves to create a sweet bouquet. I also had to do a little bit of additional trimming on some of the flowers. I have to confess that I don't remember what colors I used for the flowers. I think it was either Highland Heather and Grapefruit Grove with Mossy Meadow leaves.
