Petal Potpourri

Thinking of You

I’ve always loved  Elegant Eggplant and Rose Red together but it’s a combination I haven’t used recently until today!  I stamped one of the four flowers available in the stamp set, Petal Potpourri, with black Staz-On ink on watercolor paper.  I love watercoloring but it really does take some time to master, at least for me.  I wasn’t completely happy with the way the flowers turned out but I drive myself crazy with how picky I can be!

I put some ink from my stamp pad onto my clear block and picked up the color with my Aqua Painter.  I felt the center of my flowers needed a little pizzazz so I added some glue with the 2 Way glue pen and then sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds glitter – first time I’ve used glitter in a long time!

On the product list below, please note that if you are interested in purchasing the stamp set AND punch, a bundle is available at a 15% discount!

Window Card & Butterfly Framelits Update

You Make My Heart Happy

It is hard to tell by the top picture but this is a window card (it’s easier to see in the bottom picture).   I should have changed my background when I photographed it but I realized this too late – after I already sent the card off!

You make my heart happy inside of card

The sentiment comes from a photopolymer set called Lovely Amazing You (#140594).  It can’t be found in any of our catalogs but I do have it in my product list below. I stamped two flowers from the set Petal Potpourri and punched them out with the Flower Medallion punch.  I thought the card could use a little sparkle so the centers have a 1/2″ circle of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

More Covered Notepads


I’ve been working on covering more 3 x 5 notepads! If you place an order with me in April, I will send one of these out to you along with a thank you card! Use the hostess code below when you place your order and I’ll send your goodies off to you!

Hostess Code:  TE2QBSYT

I covered my notepads with paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Pack.  We have these paper packs in each of the color families.  The paper measures 12 x 12 and there are 40 sheets with 2 each of 2 double sided designs. My favorite design is definitely the dots!

In my supply list I’ve not only listed the Petal Potpourri stamp set but the bundles as well.  If you purchase the stamp set along with the punch, you’ll receive a 15% discount!

I used the Painted Petals stamp set to color the flowers on the note tag punch piece.  Using my Stampin’ Write markers, I colored directly onto the stamp. Not all of our markers are sold separately but Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry can be purchased individually.  I also used Bermuda Bay but it can only be be purchased in the Brights set (which also includes Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry).   The stems were colored using Garden Green, found in the Regals Collection of markers.

If you have any questions about the notepads or placing an order, please don’t hesitate to email me!
