Two-step stamping with Stampin' Up! Petal Park Stamp Set


  • Stampin' Up! Petal Park Stamp Set
  • Up to 30% off on Kit Collection until 31 August 2023
  • With Love & Gratitude September 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit is specially-designed by Shelli 
Today I'm using the Stampin' Up! Petal Park Stamp Set and sentiments from the Layering Leaves Stamp set to create a fast, simple card that will thrill anyone who receives it.   My color theme is Bubble Bath, Berry Burst and Basic White.   I found a Berry Burst ribbon among my retired ribbon stash from an earlier time when Berry Burst was one of the colors in the Stampin' Up! Color Collection.  I was thrilled when I saw it return!  The Petal Park Stamp Set is a two-step stamp set, so I stamped the flower outlines in Berry Burst and the flowers color in Bubble Bath ink.  Because the three largest flowers are a single stamp, placement of your stamped images looks more professional than if you were trying to space flowers on your own.  I matted the stamped Basic White Cardstock layer with Berry Burst Cardstock, and also used Berry Burst Ink to stamp the sentiments.  The Petal Park Stamp set has a coordinating punch, and I have included card ideas using both the stamp set and the punch below. Why not try something new?  After all, that say pursuing your passions make you more interesting, and interesting people are enchanting." Guy Kawasaki

The basecard for this card is Bubble Bath Cardstock.  Then, I cut a 5-1/2" X 2" wide Basic White layer to use as my images and matted the image layer with a 5-1/2 X 2-1/4" piece of Berry Burst.

I first stamped the outline floral images in Berry Burst Ink, and then used the additional floral image stamp to color the images in Bubble Bath Ink.  Then I stamped the small trio of small florals in Berry Burst to fill in between the larger images.

To finish my card, I stamped sentiments from the Layering Leaves Stamp Set in Berry Burst Ink and then I added a bow of 3/8" Silver-Edged Berry Burst Ribbon from my retired stash.  I tried several different embellishments, but they drew too much attention from this simple card, so I left the embellishments for another card.
