I will admit, when I saw the catalog image for the Petal Parade stamp set that is available as part of Sale-a-Bration (you know, get it free with a $50 order!), I thought it looked kind of boring. Some abstract flower images and that was it. But then – like usual – I saw some samples and realized how pretty this set can be… especially for creating your own backgrounds like in a card that I found by Erna Logtenberg that I just had to CASE:
This card has a little bit of everything in it: stamping, embossing, ribbons, punches…I guess I just needed to fit in a die cut in there and I’d have the whole package!
But I loved this color combination and thought it worked so well with this stamp set. I used:
- Baked Brown Sugar
- Crisp Canteloupe
- Early Espresso
- Whisper White
It’s a pretty and elegant combination don’t you think?
For the sentiment, I switched things up and pulled out my long neglected Round Array stamp set and instead of punching it out using the 7/8” scallop punch, I used a bigger circle punch instead (1-1/4”). I thought the extra white space helped the sentiment not get lost.
Did you see that two of the colors of the stretch ruffle ribbon are on sale this week as part of the weekly deals? The Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush colors.. and you could use this same layout and design and just switch up the colors to match what is on sale. Like Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, and Early Espresso… or Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, and Silver glitter paper!
In fact, now I’m off to try out the different color combinations because I think they are going to look awesome!
