Today I am excited to share these Petal Palette flower stamps from Stampin 'UP! .. I LOVE this rose image!! I colored these stamped roses with my NEW Stampin' Blends markers (live last week on video) and then die cut the images and added them to this card!! I hope you enjoy this idea! Please enjoy my VIDEO TUTORIAL at the bottom of this blog post for coloring and shading tips.
I combined 2 Stampin' Up! designer papers in the background of this card:
Tropical Chic designer paper (the stripes & die cut label) #146916
Coloring Tips included in the VIDEO TUTORIAL at the bottom of this post!
Additional Card Details:
The Granny Apple Green die cut label was die cut using the Stitched Label framelit and Tropical Chic paper
The sentiment is stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink onto a Whisper White Stitched Shape oval, using the Treat Time stamp set
The flowers are stamped with Memento Black ink onto Thick Whisper White and colored with Stampin' Blends: Flirty Flamingo combo pack, Poppy Parade combo pack, Dark Pineapple Punch, Dark Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green combo pack, Dark Call me Clover, then die cut with the coordinating Petals & More thinlits.
I used Artisan Pearls to finish off the card

I used Powder Pink ruffled ribbon to pull in the soft pinks on this card.

I have a FREE Video Tutorial for you today to show you how to make these beautiful cards that combine the Petal Promenade paper and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper, both from Stampin UP!. I got the original idea from my friend and Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator Gloria Plunkett, then I just kept designing more cards until I had dozens of them. You'll see most of them in the video below :)

I really like this greeting (below).. wishing you a lifetime of love & happiness.. it would make a terrific wedding or anniversary card!! Or even a greeting on a bridal shower card, right? It's found on page 118 in the current 2018-2019 catalog, in the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.
The large flower is stamped using the Beautiful Promenade set, and die cut with the coordinating Beautiful Layers thinlit dies (sold in a 10% off bundle! #148389, or see it on pg 107). The leaves are also die cut from the same thinlit die set.
All of my card bases are Petal Pink cardstock, and the mat layer is Flirty Flamingo cardstock.
The greetings are all stamped on a Stitched Shape Framelit oval with Flirty Flamingo ink.
The greeting below, and the "live every moment" greeting are both found in the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

One thing I love about this card design is that it folds flat for mailing, and then pops up easily into this gorgeous easel display when the recipient takes it out of the envelope!
Learn how easy it is to create the 2-tone leaves and flowers with an ink pad and sponge dauber! Watch the video tutorial at the bottom of this post! :)
I love the greetings in the Treat Time stamp set (pg 35) so I used one on the card above/below.
Be sure to pin or print out the cutting and scoring dimensions below so that you can make this card!! Mix and match the cardstock colors and designer paper patterns to suite your taste. I took my color palette from the Tropical Chic 6x6 designer paper stack colors. :)
As I was creating this project, I thought about 4 things that I do when die cutting that might help you!!
If you know you are doing to do a lot of die cutting with a particular set, it's helpful to buy a 2nd set of dies, if that's within your budget
I was so excited to experiment with adding more than one color on each Healing Hugs rose stamp, and you might have watched my Facebook Live video tutorial on Sunday as I demonstrated this technique live! If you missed it, scroll down in this post for the video replay.
The Healing Hugs rose and leaves are a new type of stamp called "Distinktive". It's a photorealistic type of image which is enhanced when you use more than one color! (see pg 110 for the set and tips from Stampin' UP!).
The beautiful Healing Hugs stamp set is available in wood mount or clear mount!
Today we are going to chat about coloring tips and other great tips for creating handmade cards featuring the Stampin' UP! Graceful Glass vellum, and Stampin' Blends markers! The vellum has all the designs already printed on the sheets, and I've colored them with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. (watch the video below in this post for more info).
The card below also featured the Garden Trellis embossing folder background on Gorgeous Grape cardstock!
Please enjoy this VIDEO TUTORIAL with lots of vellum tips!

As I mentioned in the video above.. did you see the amazing difference between placing a colored piece of cardstock or a white piece of cardstock behind the colored vellum!? Wow!!
Below Left: Whisper White cardstock behind colored Graceful Glass vellum
Below Right: Balmy Blue cardstock behind colored Graceful Glass vellum
I know I've mentioned this before, but it's worth repeating... to adhere your vellum to the cardstock without any glue lines or spots showing, simply dab some Multipurpose glue with a Stampin' Sponge onto the cardstock piece, then lay the vellum down... press, and voila... perfect seal and no "glue lines" :)
There are 12 different patterns preprinted on the Graceful Glass vellum. I am showcasing one of them today!
Below: check out the very different looks you can achieve with the Graceful Glass vellum, depending on your color choices with the Stampin' Blends markers and also the color of cardstock you place behind the vellum!!
Graceful Glass vellum available HERE, Stampin' Blends markers available HERE
This card just makes me smile... I love the colors, the cheeriness and the cute die cut butterfly from the Painted Glass bundle!!
Did you know you can emboss with your Big Shot dies from Stampin' UP!? That's right! Not only do they cut out images, but by using the Embossing Mats (pg 221 in your new catalog, or here online), you can also create gorgeous embossed impressions on your handmade cards!!!
Check out my Video Tutorial below in today's post for more info!
