The Hand-Penned Petals Suite is one of my favourites from the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. The Designer Series Paper is just gorgeous and the stamp set has outline images as well as 2-Step stamps so it has lots of potential. The Genial Gems that complete the suite are so pretty in Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya.
I’ve used the suite today to create 2 Double Z Fold cards.
This first one I have used Cinnamon Cider & Mint Macaron which I’ve picked from the Designer Series Paper. I first stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black onto some Basic White cardstock. I then stamped the leaf images using Mint Macaron, the large flower in full strength Cinnamon Cider and the smaller flower in 2nd generation Cinnamon Cider. I’ve also coloured the stem using Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.
Next I’ve die cut the image using the coordinating dies. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I’ve mounted the image using Stampin’ Dimensionals and finally added a few Genial Gems to finish off the front section.
I’ve used one piece of DSP on the card with the centre piece showing the reverse side.
The second card has a Soft Succulent card base. Soft Succulent isn’t listed as one of the colours in the Designer Series Papers but it matches quite well. I’ve used the other flower from the stamp set on this card which is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The large flower is stamped using Pale Papaya. The next 2 sizes are stamped using Blushing Bride,the small duo flowers are in Daffodil Delight with the leaves being stamped in Soft Succulent.
Again I have stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Moments using Memento Tuxedo Black. The image is die cut using the coordinating die and mounted to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’ve used those pretty Genial Gems again to complete the card front.
Once again it is one piece of the DSP and I’ve used the reverse side for the centre piece.
