The Hand-Penned Petals Bundle by Stampin’ Up! was my first purchase from the 2021-2022 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog and I find myself using it over & over again. I can’t wait to share with you how easily this card came together!
I am in love with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set – it features beautifully drawn floral images and coordinating fill stamps that give the design an effortless watercolored look. This stamp set is perfectly designed for every occasion! Be watching for more cards using this stamp set!
But for today’s card, I concentrated on the gorgeous Penned Flowers Dies. These delicate florals and botanical accents make them perfect for all your crafting needs.
And can we chat about that gorgeous Hand-Penned Designer Paper? For today’s card, I decided to pull the color combination directly from the paper and I’m really happy how it turned out – it’s so bright and cheery! Here’s the color combo I used:
Aren’t those colors yummy? I have to say, Just Jade is rapidly becoming one of my favorite greens! Ok, so to the tutorial – here’s how I made this card:
