Thanks - Hand-Penned Petals - International Blog Highlights Winners Hop - August 2021

I am so excited to be part of Kylie's International Blog Highlights Top Ten Winners hop this month. Thank you to all of the people who voted for me! I truly appreciate your vote!  

I also want to thank Kylie Bertucci for giving me the opportunity to be part of this hop and the International Blog Highlights program.

The theme for today's card is "Thanks". I used one of my most used sets the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and coordinating Penned Flowers Dies. I also used the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper (a Sale-a-bration item) which coordinates beautifully (pardon the pun) with the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle.


Use a piece of Basic White for the card base. Use a smaller piece of Smoky Slate card, emboss with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder and adhere to the Basic White base with Stampin' Dimensionals. Use a piece of the Beautifully Penned DSP and attach this to the Smoky Slate layer using Liquid Glue.

Stamp the large floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set a couple of times onto Basic White card using Basic Grey Ink. Die cut using the Penned Flowers Dies and colour the images with Stampin' Blends (listed below). Use a piece of the Silver Simply Elegant Trim and adhere to the card using dabs of Liquid Glue. Adhere the flowers on top using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp onto a piece of Basic Black card using Versmark ink, and heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Attach the sentiment onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add some of the Matte Black Dots the card.
