It's the first Monday of the month so that means it's time for another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop. I hope that you had a wonderful Easter, spending time with your families and enjoying everything that is Easter. This hop we are focusing on the beautiful stamp set Painted Petals. It's a stunning set and as the name suggests the images look like a beautiful painting.
If you are following round on the hop, I'm #16 on the hop. You may have joined me from the very wonderful and talented Linda Callahan, or you may have started he with me. Either way you are in for a creative treat! If you get lost on the hop click on the banner at the top of this post and this will give you the list of all the 'hoppers' in The Stamp Review Crew.
This hop I really wanted to challenge myself to make 3 cards all using the same colours and similar elements. I know that may not seem a huge deal but it is quite a big thing for me as I tend to make one card and then can't seem to find a way to make other cards using similar colours and elements.
I think I have achieved my challenge to myself and created 3 cards all looking similar but all different too.
My first card I started with the striped background. I used the Stampin' Write markers to colour the stamp in Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and Pistachio Pudding. I then repeated the stamping to created the background.
I then punched out the 2-1/2" circle and then stamped the Painted Petal images on the circle and then finished of the rest of the card the some twine, sequins, banners and a butterfly punched out of vellum.
My next card I used the longer flower image and bunched them together on the side of the card and then layered all the other elements around it. It is a bit hard to see in the photo but the flower image on the circle I first stamped off on to some scrap paper and then stamped again on to the circle to give make the image look lighter.
My last card uses similar elements again but in a different layout. The flower images are stamped around the side and then I stamped off the stripes in the circle to give them a lighter look. All finished off with a vintage button, sequins, gold foil sheets and the vellum butterfly.
