Petal Parade + See Ya Later

I am continuing with my favourite products from the 2014 Sale-a-bration catalogue! Today my share is featuring one of my most used products, the 'Petal Parade' stamp set. As an avid gardener, I'm a huge sucker for flowers. This set has beautiful images with can be used for so many different types of cards - it is especially great for making fun backgrounds, instead of using designer series paper.

For this card I first stamped the greeting from 'See ya Later', I used a piece of tape to cover the small cloud part of the stamp so I would just have the main sentiment - once inked up, remove the tape from your stamp and huff to re-activate the ink and stamp. The ink I used was Primrose Petals. I then took a punched 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, a sponge dauber and some Soft Sky ink and started to make my clouds for the background. I wanted it to be like a meadow of flowers.

I took the 'leaf' image, well I use it for leaves but it works as a flower too! I stamped using Pistachio Pudding ink multiple times, some I stamped off first for a lighter stamped image. Then using Raspberry Ripple, Strawberry Slush and Primrose Petals I stamped the flower images and cut them out. For the smaller flowers I cut out the center of the largest flower, the medium flower I cut two sizes, one with the whole image and the second I took most of the colour part away, I just saved some of the outline. I added a pearl to the center to finish my card. It came out how it was in my head, so that's a good thing.. since there's a lot going on in there!!

Have a super day! Happy stamping :)
